It certainly can. I had two 100% brett fermentations that needed blow-off tubes, 5 gallons in a
6 gallon fermentor.Okay good to know. I'll plan accordingly. But I don't have to be concerned

Does 100% brett create much of a Krausen? If not, I would use a 5 gallon carboy for
fermentation so there won't be much headspace as I typically produce close to 5.5 gallons of
wort on my system.

So you're saying throw the Brett Trois and Lacto in right at the start of primary? Remember, I
didn't plan to use any Sacch in this batch. So there won't be any issues with prolonged yeast

and Lacto. M...

There's no way deer could get to it, but I've seen rabbits running around. I'm going to put up
chicken wire tomorrow and hope it's not birds. Still fuming about the ****head that did this.

I planted a Cascade and a Centennial rhizome 2 weeks ago. The Centennial was growing well with
3 shoots about 4 inches long (Cascade has yet to emerge). I just found the Centennial rhizome
laying on t...

Oh I misunderstood your phrasing. Thanks for all the explanation on this difficult topic of
water chemistry. I understand a lot more now. In fact, I just did a taste test with the
filtered water, wate...

Ah I see, thank you. Are there 10" filters available that work in the same manner as the Brita
filter? How would I identify these?The Brita also has particulate and activated carbon
filtration so it t...
