What you are describing sounds like bits of yeast being brought to the surface by CO2 bubbles. When the yeast reaches the top (and sometimes before) it releases from the CO2 and drops back to the...

Not a problem. A whole packet is probably a little over-pitched anyway. Do it and don't worry.

Temperature controller for a fermentation chamber

I did some more reading and found a post by IslandLizard where he stated that he took a controller apart and the relays were 10A at 220V or 15A at 110V.

My fears have been alleviated.

I absolutely agree with your last sentence. For the record, I'm no pro - I know just enough to make me dangerous. And thanks for the information. I just looked at my chest freezer owner's manual and...

Just to point this out: the fridge or freezer will run at relatively low amps, but you have to be really careful with startup amps. You will burn up your motor way faster if you do not have high...

I would also be afraid of infecting the saved sample and getting an unrealistically low reading the second time.

Looks like a flap to keep the valves in the posts from being pushed in (probably for transportation?).

My kegs don't have pressure relief either. Never been a problem.

There are specific categories within BJCP. At some point, new categories are added due to popularity. Great current example is the black IPA. I just entered beers into a competition that allowed...

It is not possible.

Yeast is microscopic. There is still plenty in suspension.

Roughly speaking, 1.040 vs 1.050 means 4% ABV vs 5% ABV. Likely also throws off the balance of the beer a little. The dryness of alcohol can counteract the sweetness of malt. Less alcohol means the...

Just looked back at my scoresheet. You are correct in that it only counts toward 3 points. (Compared to 12 for aroma and 20 for flavor...the way it should be, I suppose.)

Was the kit extract or grain? You say you added an extra lbs DME, but list kit OG. I think DME adds 45ppg so you are probably at 1.100 for a true OG. If this was extract and you hit volumes...

It's tough to get a list as you have shown. Very generally, more flavorful brews and brews that depend on more complex flavors require more time for the flavors to meld together. Higher ABV also adds...

I think people have run the temp control wire under the seal of the freezer. That way you don't have to drill holes.
