How does CO2 minimize the infection risk? Lacto and Brett don't require O2, they'll infect your
batch with or without CO2. CO2 is just a gas, bacteria fall through it, they don't bounce off

I also read somewhere on here that the temp of the sparge water doesn't really matter. I don't
know if this is true or not, but if you try this, then you could drain from the MLT to the
BK.It works fo...

I'm not sure if I've done 7am yet, but at long camping trips, I do have beer for breakfast.

Take a gravity reading. It may have been a super fast fermentation due to the high temperature.
Posted in thread: Getting Started :: If I Knew Then What I Know Now on 06-18-2014 at 06:06 AM
I don't regret starting with no-boil pre-hopped extract kits. I learned a lot about
fermentation temps and schedule.I've seen many brewers that started out with AG and obsess over
