Try a shorter mash period. You may be losing a little heat during that long of a mash and
giving the beta amylase the edge on breaking down the dextrines you need for the fuller body.
The other factor...

I'm a fairly experienced brewer and unfortunately feel like I've become pretty complacent with
my process... hence this ask.Pretty much all of my brews end up with a pretty consistently low
body and a...

Friendly note here but ST's "Live" Ipa is bottle conditioned. It's readily available in the
stores around me (Raleigh, NC) right now. I've already harvested some for my second go round of

Hey,I realize that this topic hasn't been posted on in a while, but with fall right around the
corner, you know people are going to be thinking Pumking Clone. Several posters throughout the

Have you taken the valve apart? Mine always "looked" clean. Also, I am not sure throttling the
supply side on a pump is good.Yes actually, the only reason we started doing this was because
of what was...

If you open the ball valve half-way while recirculating the hot PBW that should get them pretty
clean.Agreed. Just make sure to rotate the valve while recirculating. This has never been a
problem for ...

If the gravity is stable and ~1.011 (good middle ground), it's probably not infected. 5 months
would give those bugs plenty of time to chew threw the sugars that sacch can't and create some

Tdawg, is this beer sitting in a secondary or is it still in the primary on the cake? Have you
tasted it?It's currently in the secondary. However, there seems to be a pretty decent amount of
trub at t...

Makes sense! I'll check the gravity pronto.As for pressure fluctuations, just so I can
understand this better... Wouldn't the effect go both ways? I.e. barometric pressure drops then
gas comes from th...

Haha. Point taken. The airlock is not a fermentation gauge. However, it's not fluctuations in
temp/pressure that's causing the airlock to bubble. I guess I should have made it more clear
that there is...
