    I used to live in San Antonio (actually, Schertz, but whatever) and I could never seem to make
    a quality bitter or IPA. The real problem was I had just started brewing and didn't know
    anything about t...

    Awesome setup, thanks for pictures. Where did you get the carboy cap with the tubes?

    How do you transfer from the carboy using CO2?

    If you just transferred to secondary it's probably just CO2 coming out of solution thanks to
    the movement. No big deal. Give it the sniff/smell test. If it seems ok, it probably is.

    The airlock activity does let you know the beer is actively fermenting, but the lack of
    activity doesn't mean it's done. I tend to only get bubbles in it for the first few days, then
    nothing for the r...

    I'm assuming that option is there for people who secondary. If you only primary those numbers
    should be the same.

  • Posted in thread: Measuring FG noob question... on 03-19-2014 at 11:52 AM
    I don't know if you would have benefited from a secondary, but you probably would have
    benefited from more time in primary. 14 days might have been enough time if your process was
    solid, but another w...

    If you're consistent with your processes and you've verified with a hydrometer several times
    that your timeline works, I don't see why you'd be required to continue using one for
    subsequent batches.Th...

    It's not going to hurt anything to check now, but I agree that you're probably wasting your
    time checking this early.

  • Posted in thread: Moving fermenter upstairs without disturbing sediment on 01-06-2014 at 08:37 PM
    Are you saying you want to crash upstairs and then move it back down for kegging? You still
    have something to be gained from crashing even in that case. The sediment will compact when
    cold and be resi...
