    So I bought a freezer and made it into a fermentation chamber. My first brew to enter the
    chamber had a fermentation overflow. I changed the airlock out for a blow off tube and wipe out
    of the beer/wo...

    The scuba shop said they would fill it, but if its not O2 I am guessing there is no point.Would
    an air compressor accomplish the same thing (with a filter of some kind)? I need one of those
    anyway, th...

    to certify it + cost to fill at the Scuba shop.Is that a reasonable price? Will it work to
    oxygenate my wo...

    One additional question: do you stir the mash? Specifically prior to draining first runnings
    and again prior to vorleuf when sparging?You need to stir like a madman to knock all the sugars
    loose prior...

    Are you using a brew program to calculate your efficiency? So, you're measuring pre-boil
    gravity, then OG? If you are measuring pre-boil gravity, are you adjusting the gravity for the
    temp? Most hydro...

    Let's get a few things straight before moving on. Adding sparge slowly or draining it out
    slowly are requirements of fly sparging and time wasters in batch sparging. If anyone
    empirically finds that s...

    Are you hitting your mash temps? How are you measuring efficiency? Are you calculating gravity
    going in to the kettle or into the fermenter?Have you tried calibrating your thermometer (reads
