Let it ride, it'll finish eventually. I've been using US-05 for probably the last 5-6 batches using a temp controlled ferment chamber held at 18C (64.4F). A couple of those batches took 14+ days...

Just let it settle in the brewpot before you transfer. You're going to lose some volume but if you only want the crystal clear wort it works great.

EarlyAmateurZymurgist,

That is impressive. You say that you don't aerate at all, do you pitch your yeast according to the well known calculators? Or do you pitch at a higher amount?

I appreciate the responses, I understand I could brew the beer without the pure o2 so now I'm kind of wondering why I asked the question. I know that if I continue with this hobby I will want or need...

This is exactly what I'm worried about. A beer like this is not really cheap to brew and if I will have a greater possibly of success with the tank then its probably time I get one.

Do you think I'm going to get enough oxygen in the wort that way for a healthy fermentation? I'm gonna need this to finish pretty dry, and will be using liquid yeast.

Want to brew my first iipa

The only thing I don't have is a way to oxygenate my wort.

I do have a small aquarium pump but no stone. Should I attempt this brew without an oxygen tank? Or should I wait?

Og is anticipated...

I'd get something like a 62 quart kettle.
A 52 quart cooler mash tun.

Fermenters of some sort, I like buckets. And then a way to control ferment temperature.

I also use a smaller space heater on low with an stc-1000 controller. Not sure the wattage. Works great once the beer is up to temp.

Fermentation at those temps will take a bit longer than normal. 59* air temp is gonna be more like 61~64 fermentation temp. Everything will be fine. Let them go for 10 days and take a gravity reading.
