the unit won't control lower than 5. It's hooked up to a deep freeze, so it's definitely the unit. I'll settle with 5C, I just wish I could go closer to 0

More yeast at bottling for Imperial IPA?

Hi all,

I brewed a Pliny inspired IIPA about a month ago, and I'm just about to cold crash for a week. My efficiency was a little better than I thought it would be and I ended up with a 1.085 OG....

Cold crash before dry hop?

Has anyone tried cold crashing before dry hopping an ipa? My thinking is that this would remove more yeast from suspension and then the dry hop would have a better extraction rate. I would transfer...

I love Wyeast 1968

I brewed an ESB 4 days ago, and this is my first time with the 1968 strain. What it's done in four days beats any yeast I've ever brewed with. It's brought the gravity from 1.060 down to 1.015 and...
