How long to cold crash? Thats a good question. I was thinking 2 days, but I can wait 4 if that might produce a better beer. Having never cold crashed, I should also ask - is that simply turning the...

Thanks for the responses. I'm using a stainless fermenter (Deep Woods Cavern), with no secondary. I'm bottling after the cold crash.

So is that 19...

No pics of the mess. Several weeks ago I smelled beer in the basement but couldn't find it. It apparently leaked into the bottom of my beer crate (where most of it was soaked up) and then onto the...

Interesting bottle bomb

So I made an APA and bottled it a couple of months ago. In hindsight, I realized that I was over 1 gallon short on my 5 g batch (clue #1), but I made no adjustment to the carbonation. I opened 1 or...

I got mine from Brewers Hardware (Part # TWNS8, $10.95). And, yes, it does fit the probe from my STC-1000. After I got the thermowell, I realized that I needed to add a stainless nut in order to...

Exactly. Yes, it is expensive (about $135), but I personally think its worth it. Put it this way, I've blown a lot more than $135 on crap I now regret - but this stainless fermenter is one item I...

No, it came with both ports, and the gasketed-hole in the lid for the airlock. They also provide two stainless steel plugs so you can cover one or both of the ports. The valve is an extra $20, but...

Oh, right, that's another thing I like about this fermenter - it fits in my fermentation freezer, which won't even hold a 6 gallon plastic bucket.
