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

Short story: Fermentor not bubbling. Opened top 3" port and looks like there is krausen, but no

little to keep heat out of the stainless table.I am getting set up to switch to e-brew from
propane. Have a s...
