The only tradition I have is taking the airlock shot before bottling. I use vodka in the airlocks, so as not to anger the alcohol gods by dumping it, someone's gotta drink it. If there's a new person...

I'd try to get that probe situated a bit better. I keep a growler full of water in mine and tape the probe to the outside with a bit of insulation.

Thanks, I think I'll try doing both. Heat it up and use the wedge and lube. I used dish soap and water to get the tube through the hose, but is there a better option for a tight fit like this?

I'm the same way. But what cooking taught me is that the more you do it, the better you get at anticipating flavors and how something will affect the dish. Its the same with beer. As long as you're...

Stuffing a rag in with a bit of hot water and swirling has always worked for me. I've seen someone convert a racking cane into a king of pressure washer wand for this as well.

Damn, I didn't realize how expensive the clear hose was! I strolled into Lowes and find out the 5/8 inch was like $0.49 a foot, but go up an 1/8 inch to 3/4 and it jumps to $1.79 a foot. How is that...

Most places don't do any of that for growler fills because its assumed that the growler will be consumed quickly, within a day or two. A new place opened near me and has a counter pressure growler...

How many times opening the fermenter is too much?
