Posted in thread: Batch Sparge Temperature too low on 09-01-2013 at 01:18 AM
So, I add the recommended 168F sparge water and mix it well. I took the final temperature and
it was 159F. Is that normal, or should I bump the initial sparge water up?

Phew. It is cold crashing right now. Good to know I can sanitize the bag and rubber band.
Cheers guys! :mug:

So, I used pellet hops to dry hop my IPA (in a glass carboy). I was hoping they would all
settle down before I rack to my keg. Well, that didn't happen. There are still some floaters
and such. Can I u...

1 week after repitching (gallon starter, 2 packets of Nottingham yeast), my SG is down to
1.032. I'll check for the next few days to see if that remains constant. Question: Beersmith

I have a pretty good thermometer from Cole-Palmer. Brand new. I have already swirled it too.
I'll try to pitch some Nottingham, from a starter and see what happens. If it works, great. If
not, it'll s...

My thermometer was in the mash the entire time, and it was 152 to start and 149.5 to end. My
current SG is at 1.038 and has been that way for 1 week. So, I'm at 60% attenuation. Wyeast

So, I have a fermentation that I think has stalled. I want to repitch some yeast. After I make
a starter, do I reaerrate my beer? It has been in the primary for about 3 weeks. For reference,
I am maki...
Posted in thread: First hydrometer reading on 05-26-2011 at 02:23 AM
Don't go by one hydrometer reading. Have 3 of them, a day apart, be the same reading before
considering fermentation complete. Also, IMO, leave it in the primary longer. It will have a
chance to clear...

Off by 2 points? Don't sweat it. As far as the cooling, I had the exact same thing happen to me
on my first batch. I couldn't believe how long it took to get to 70. It doesn't have to be
cooled in 30 ...
