I'm not fermenting in my cubes anymore. I got tired of trying to syphon out of there without the hops and other **** clogging things up so I've started letting it cool/storing int he cube and then pouring through a sieve into a bucket to ferment and have been very happy with this process so far.

Wish I had bought the smaller/cheaper cubes now instead of the winpaks though. Oh well

I don't ferment in the cube. I dump the whole thing into either a 6 gallon Better Bottle or an Ale Pail.

Why not just transfer the hot wort into a bucket and save a couple of steps?

I just don't like having all the **** in the fermenter so I like to strain it out and as an added benefit it aerates the wort too.

Same way I aerated in the carboy.

Close the top and shake the heck out of it for 5o minutes.

I have excellent starts on my no chills, actually some of my most violent ferments.

Your arms must get sore after shaking for 50 minutes
