Update: When I discovered the spontaneous fermentation on Tuesday, I had already opened my smack-pack of 1056. I went ahead and pitched it into the bubbling wort. What did I have to lose at that...

Cooked Veggie IPA!?

I brewed an IPA with some friends last week (Friday) and realized after I got it in the bucket that I didn't have the smack-pack I needed for it. I couldn't get to the LHBS until Tuesday, so I had it...

Tubing Organizer?

I love my 6-keg keezer, but being the semi-neatfreak that I am, the jumble of tubing is driving me bonkers! What do my fellow keezer-owners use to organize your beer lines? Does anyone make a product...

That's an interesting point. Maybe we should be placing our carboys on something in the freezer, to avoid that sort of contact. Maybe something as simple as a towel or rubber mat?

Update 2

My Bohemian Pilsner has been vigorously fermenting for 7 days now, and just started to slow this evening. It's down to a bubble every 15 seconds.

And to think I was worried! :rockin:

Check this thread. I had never had such a long lag-time prior to this.

1 pint or 1/2 pint?

What size mason jar is best for storing harvested yeast? 1 pint, 1/2 pint, or does it even matter?

As I understand it, he was picking it up out of the chest freezer, which was set to 69 degrees F. The bottom fell out while he was holding it in mid-air, before he had a chance to set it down. He was...

Agreed. But it still amazes me that it failed along the bottom like that. I'd bet it would've failed there at some point in time even without handle use. Of course, no way to prove or disprove that...

UPDATE: There IS hope!

At about 8:00 this morning (36 hours into the 2nd smackpack), I took the fermenter out of the fermentation freezer(where it was kept at 50 degrees), and let it warm up to room temp (73). By 1:00pm,...
