  • Posted in thread: My shamelessly cheap $12 DIY stir plate on 07-30-2014 at 04:57 PM
    I started using mine as a computer fan too. When it isn't being used as a stir plate I have it
    up against a vent in my old iMac. The GPU keeps overheating while watching video. I can hear
    the internal...

    No sarcasm intended. A freshly tapped keg frequently foams. If maybe the OP is talking about
    the first pour each day, then it is a problem.

    The first pour or two is always foam. Just ask any bartender.

    Definitely do a D-rest now. It'll lower the gravity, and you'll otherwise have Diacetyl in your
    beer.

  • Posted in thread: How should I handle unwashed yeast? on 07-24-2014 at 09:39 AM
    I made the starter on Friday, brewed on Sunday (wanted to brew Saturday but something came up)
    and pitched the yeast at 42-43℉ on Monday. By Tuesday morning I had a small amount of
    foam on top, ...

    In the meantime, my 2124 pilsner is happily bubbling away at 44℉. I made a big starter
    with my re-used yeast. It's a shame the OP didn't live in the NYC area, I had plenty of yeast.

  • Posted in thread: Citra dry hop in a Pils? on 07-24-2014 at 12:25 AM
    Thanks for the replies and encouragement. I'm thinking I'll do a half batch and leave it in the
    fermentor in the fridge while the keg empties as I suggested above. And I just checked the
    bottles, at 4...

  • Posted in thread: Citra dry hop in a Pils? on 07-23-2014 at 01:46 AM
    I did have one thought, I'm fermenting the brew in a pair of 3 gallon Better Bottles that fit
    nicely in my fridge. I could transfer one to the keg, and then rack the other into the now
    vacant and clea...

    I've got 5.5 gallons of Pilsner fermenting away right now in my fridge, but I'm thinking I'd
    like to try something different with it. The recipe is:9.5lbs German Pils 2-row1 lb
    Cara-pils.25 lb Crystal...

    April yeast is getting pretty old. I'd also wonder if your reading is due to settling. I'd
    still have a plan B.There are homebrew shops in Rhode Island. At least one of them must have
    2124, it is pret...
