What stage of fermentation is it in? You can always dissolve the rest of the extract in some water, boil for ten minutes then add to the fermenter.

All of the aroma and flavor has been lost during the boil. I suppose, theoretically, you may get a bit more perceived bitterness. I don't see this concept improving your beer. Obviously it's not...

Mmmm. That is a beautiful thing! Love your trellis setup. I have no idea about the last cone but it's certainly unique. Brew something nice and fresh for us!

As long as you pitch the proper amount for that gravity, it should do just fine. With that big a beer you attenuation may not be as high as you are used to, so keep that in mind.

Fermentation can take up to 72 hours to start. Bucket fermentors have been known to not make great seals. If that is what you are using then it is completely possible that fermentation is well under...

The air in the ferm chamber will cool down much quicker then the liquid which will take a fair amount of time. I have had the same thing happen with my conical and ferm chamber. When doing 10+ gallon...

I would look at the ingredients listed on the "instant oats", it may not be just oats. A small amount of lipids can certainly cause these problems.

How long do you let the bottle condition before putting them in the fridge? How long do you let them sit in the fridge before opening? Have you tried sourcing you ingredients from somewhere else?

Sure, you can do that. The only reason I cold crash in the fermenter before transferring into the keg is that if you get too much trub in the keg it can clog the out-post and make for a real pita. If...

I would move the cascade to 10 or 15. The Centennial to 5 and the Amarillo the flameout. Dryhop with the Simcoe. I would go with either the vienna or the munich, not both. Maybe bump up the 2 row to...

That's the only thing that is odd about it. I would bet the yeast began to floculate a little prematurely in this case probably due to temp since it seems they have started back up again when the...

As long as your are careful and move it slowly the yeast will be dormant after the cold crash so what little is kicked back up into suspension will settle back down again. Just try not to agitate it...

Likes like krausen to me. Any idea if there was temperature fluctuation while you were gone? Take a gravity reading and smell/taste.

Close to freezing is preferable for cold crashing but 40 will work just fine. I usually do 36 to 48 hours. Dryhopping is more effective at fermentation temps but the yeast in suspension will take...

Nothing you can do now except learn from your mistake. Once it is properly carbonated I would try and enjoy as soon as possible as the older the beer gets, the more the oxidation will be present.
