If you're dead set on getting a sparge arm I'll make you a deal on a Listermann Sparge Arm. My Step-dad gave me a Listermann mash tun setup that came with a brass sparge arm and various parts. I've...

How much chloramine to be noticeable?

My tap water is treated with chloramine. To get around it I use campden tablets to treat my water when I do partial mashes or use distilled water when doing all extract. Before I did this my beers...

How about Wyeast 1272? It finishes a little sweeter than 1056 and still results in a clean profile. I actually think I like the flavor profile better than 1056 unless I'm going for the most neutral...

I've never had one get this clear, but then again my wheats never really last very long once they're ready. :D

Thanks for the reassurance!

I use US-05 in a lot of my beers, and they're normally very clear after 3-4 weeks in primary, but I wasn't expecting this given how cloudy the beer was, even at bottling. I guess I thought it was...

Wheat beer dropped clear in bottle?

I just bottled a batch of hoppy wheat beer I made last week. It was a Cooper's Wheat beer kit that I doctored by adding some hop additions and some dried orange and lemon peel (the kind like they...

9.5*C? That's really low for an ale yeast. I would suggest you pitch your yeast no lower than 16*C and try to ferment between 16*C and 20*C. Unless you mean you're waiting for the temp to come up...

I agree. What little CO2 that stays in the headspace of the carboy or bucket isn't going to be enough to make much difference, even if it is somehow reabsorbed.

Besides, your example of a...

I should also point out that this is a highly debated topic. My $.02 is that unless you bring the beer temp up to an extremely high temp after fermentation completes, say bring it up from 62* to...

That temperature setting is meant for the temp at which the beer fermented. The temp the beer was fermented at changes how much CO2 stays in solution. You won't gain any more CO2 after cold...

Yeah, I hate to think what it would look like if I hadn't kept my temps in the low 60's. It probably would have pushed the lid off and gotten all over the place.

I've not noticed that my dry yeast (usually prefer US-05) becomes active any faster or is any more vigorous when I rehydrate than when I pitch it dry, but I usually ferment in the low 60's.

I use a Cooper's FV as well and I've not had an issue yet. I really wouldn't worry about it unless you're making your batches well above 6 gallons.

Ironically it wasn't a big beer that I had to...

You want a pot that can handle several watts, and you only want some resistance, so 25k or 50k would be good. Anything more than that and it will just work like an off/on switch. Personally when I...

What are the vertical lines that look like scratches/brush marks on the sides then? I'm used to seeing yeast stick to the sides of my fermenters, but I don't recall seeing the lines before.
