Northern Brewer bad crush!!!

I've gotten 2 Dead Ringer IPA kits in a row with bad crushes causing me to come in about 18 points below expected OG. Anyone else having issues with them? I guess I'll have another session IPA....

I would let the beer ferment out before transferring. Just spray some sanitizer on the area where it is leaking a few times a day. As long as it's not leaking bad, you won't lose too much.

Um, did you pitch yeast? Just kidding,.......airlock activity doesn't always have to happen. I'm sure it will be fine. How long has it been since you pitched?

Do you think "almost as an airlock" is good enough? Get a bucket, it's cheap. Plus you can do 5 gallon batches, just brew strong and top off with water.

The only way to tell if fermentation is complete is take hydrometer samples for a few days and if they're consistent, it's done. Although I would leave it in primary a few more days to let the yeast...

It's as expensive as you want to make it, or as cheap as you can get it.... Really, it's not expensive if you research and don't buy "bling" gear.

Just toss the whole tab in at 15 minutes. I've been doing that for years and I've yet to have a cloudy beer!! Also been tossing in with hops . It won't effect hops, just coagulates proteins.

I use a metal stick with etchings on it to mark gallons. Just stick it in and measure. You'll have to calibrate it to your specific pot using water.

I'd wait a day and pitch the starter. You're already making it, might as well use it. It should take off pretty quick.
