Posted in thread: Is this safe? on 09-18-2013 at 05:08 PM
I've brewed 60 or so batches out on my deck and I'm tired of the vancouver rain. Does anyone
think it would be safe to brew indoors with a fan set up next to a 35x54 inch window? I'm using
a 68,000 BT...

The unit won't go any lower or the temperature won't go any lower? If the latter, it may be
your fridge rather than the unit.the unit won't control lower than 5. It's hooked up to a deep
freeze, so it...

I've had this cheap no-name temperature controller for a while now and it's gotten the job done
for fermentation control. The problem with it is that it can't control temperature below 5C, so

I decanted the first starter so there was only yeast, then pitched it into a 3 litre starter

Hi all,I'm brewing a big american barleywine today, and I stepped up my original yeast starter

yeast, what ...

Hi all,I brewed a Pliny inspired IIPA about a month ago, and I'm just about to cold crash for a
week. My efficiency was a little better than I thought it would be and I ended up with a 1.085
OG. It's ...

Well, if the yeast are done working, and aren't actively fermenting (meaning no more CO2
production), then it shouldn't affect the dry hop at all. The reason we don't put dry hops in
while there are s...

First you need to make sure the beer is done fermenting by taking a gravity reading. How long
has it been in the primary, at least 2 weeks? Assuming so there is no need to cold crash, just
rack to sec...

Has anyone tried cold crashing before dry hopping an ipa? My thinking is that this would remove
more yeast from suspension and then the dry hop would have a better extraction rate. I would
