I just use the pasteurization technique as described in a sticky of the cider forum. Works every time.

That's a good idea too. It's pretty sweet right now, and I want the buckwheat honey flavor. Gonna be a balancing act on this one.

Old Bottle Rack

Saw this at an antique shop the other day, which means it was expensive. Holds about 160 or so. Thought y'all might enjoy it.

Anybody else have a problem with a stuck fermentation? Down to 1.020, been there for two weeks.

Thinking of pitching some EC-1118 to finish the job.

Don't take another reading until you're ready to go to secondary. That will be in about a week, +/- a couple of days.

9 gallons will get you in the ballpark. I wouldn't get too hung up on the exact number from Beersmith. Just get to the pre-boil volume you want with your sparge water.

I think you're math is a tad off from the example given.

10.75lb x 1.5 qts/lb = about 4 gallons

If you want 6.5 gallons pre-boil you'd simply sparge enough volume to hit 6.5 gallons.

I do 5 gallon batches in a 9 gallon kettle on my stove top. Just gotta sparge and keep an eye on the boil. Piece of cake.
