Not as much as I'd like....0 to 1 on a weeknight depending on if I had a workout. Probably 2-3
on a weekend.
Posted in thread: Leaky Fermenter. Urgent. What would you do? on 12-12-2014 at 04:57 PM
Duct Tape, after primary I'd transfer, but I don't think you'd hurt anything by transferring
now. The ferment should protect the beer.

+1 to the BoilI can't imagine it being the fermentation, a 90 minute or even 60 minute boil

brew indoors dur...
Posted in thread: Missed my OG with BIAB…any suggestions? on 12-08-2014 at 04:41 PM

I wouldn't want all that in my fermentor but at the same time I don't freak out about some of
it getting in. I don't think I let enough in to contribute to off flavors so I can't comment on
that. I wo...
