No other celsius-literate people on here? Whether or not you aerated is kind of a moot point. I'm not surprised your beer finished in one week given the temperature at which you fermented (25C = 77F...

At the risk of heresy, has anyone ever done a "cheater" SMaSH with a clean bittering charge of warrior or magnum, and then used the real flavor hop for the rest of the brew? I'm thinking about trying...

Aldeyhdes are a fermentation byproduct. Unless you have perpetual fermentation occurring in your chest freezer, I highly doubt you're experiencing an external aldehyde infection.

This is another vote NOT to move your IPA to secondary. The risk of even a little bit of oxidation should be more than enough to scare you off from doing it. Unless you're doing a quadruple IPA with...

This is the only thing in your process that sticks out to me. I can't think of a single yeast strain I'd start at 58F. My idea of pitching cold would be pitching at 65 and then "ramping" up to 67,...

I"m finding this a little late, but what yeast strain did you use to ferment this beer? You said you've had some acetaldehyde in other beers as well. Were these same beers fermented with the same...

SMASH from extract doesn't really work. light/dark extracts will generally have crystal mixed in with them, and I'd be surprised if munich extract wasn't actually a mix of multiple base malts.

I factor that volume into my recipe building. I'd rather have the piece of mind of clear delicious finished beer going into my keg, than worrying about getting every last penny I spent on ingredients.

Not everyone (myself included) wants that junk in the fermenter. That's the main reason I use whirfloc in the first place. Makes it easier to transfer clear beer. :mug:

My numbers on my O2 flow meter don't even start until 2L/min, so I turn it on at just a trickle and let it run for a minute. Works great for me.
