    you're probably going to have issues with being able to hold a cold crash temp.Assuming I have
    a keezer with an external conical containing 11gallons and an internal cooling coil that is
    being fed fro...

  • Posted in thread: When do you use a blow off tube? on 03-31-2016 at 09:47 PM
    Always use a blow off now. One reason that I didn't see mentioned is that the air lock could
    lose enough liquid from the bubbling to let air back in. This could happen even if the krausen
    does not rea...

    Currently running a ferment with a 5 gallon bucket. It fits on the hump without tipping, but
    just barely. I am finding that it is way more than I need to maintain ferment temp within an
    already temp c...

    If you see crispy looking white puffy foam with little light brown flakes riding on top, it's
    the 3711 krausen.Yes, did see that. Thx for the info. Have never examined krausen closely
    before. Just rel...

    Think I found it. Cooling coil exits vessel above wort level due to partial batch. Tightened
    nut down this morning several turns with wrench. Hoping to get bubbling soon.

    Yeah, definitely thinking about the headspace as part of the challenge.Checked the gravity via
    sampling port and it seems to have gone down from 1.041 to 1.030 so definitely something going
    on in ther...

    When I poured in the wort, it was VERY vigorous and there was a lot of foam. Is it possible
    what I am seeing 48hours later is still some of that same foam or does it have to be krausen?

    I ended up going with the SSBrewtech Chronical BME and placing it next to my keezer. Images
    attached.For cold: a bucket of cold water with a pump in it attached to cold side of temp
    control pumps cold...

    Short story: Fermentor not bubbling. Opened top 3" port and looks like there is krausen, but no
    bubbles in airlock. Can't figure out why. Longer story........Recently purchased the SSBrewtech
    1/2 barr...

  • Posted in thread: What do you set your e-kettles on? on 01-14-2016 at 01:58 AM
    I did try a couple of large thin silicone pizza mats under the boil kettle but it did very
    little to keep heat out of the stainless table.I am getting set up to switch to e-brew from
    propane. Have a s...
