Noticed on the original recipe you had both Pacman and Thames Valley listed. Did you use both
or default back to the Pacman based on the high ABV tolerance?Looks great, going to be brewing

Yes, I was recirculating. Granted it was a 5g batch of a low ABV beer in a full keggle so
thermal mass wasn't high (7-8# of grain total) and ambient temp was near freezing.

What Frogger said, the last several batches I've had pretty big swings in my mash temp over
short periods of time (5-6 deg drop over 10min). I'll turn on the burner as low as I can get it
but it ends ...

Should have probably included the entire setup. The details above would only be for maintaining

When using the campden tablets to kill any wild yeasts (or sanitize things), you should give it
24+ hours before you add your yeast starter or it will kill your yeasties too.Guessing that
this is prob...

i'd say at least 24 hrs, else he may have killed off his yeast - it wasn't clear (at least to
this sod) if it was added in sequence or all at once from his original message.

when did you add the yeast compared to the campden tablets (e.g. 24+ hrs between additions?).

The best luck I've had has been with EC-1118 (with the exception of a port that just won't
