It was nice to watch a brewday while I was working, the best of both worlds. Thanks for the broadcast. Next time I hope I have time to brew instead of just watch.

Well, into day 4 of the ferment and it is still chugging away. Plan to give it 2 weeks in the primary, then a couple in the secondary with the dry hop.

Sorta bored... thought Id add this note.

After about 8 days... the ferment is at a crawl. Next weekend, at the 2 week mark, it will be transferred to the secondary with the dry hop addition for a week.

I just moved my blowoff to a airlock so I could see it. It is still perking, but not much.

I'll follow your lead on this (same process I do anyway) - next Saturday (5/30) I'll move it to a secondary and dry hop.

My secondary is a brite tank made from a keg that has seen better days with a shortened dip tube.

I have a couple photos to add... but here are some details


MEASURED FG is 1.010
Actual FG is ????
Hydrometer in Distilled Water is reading .996!

Conclusion, need a refractometer... dammit. Ordering today.

Actual FG reading, assumed, anywhere between 1.012 and 1.014

Hyrdo sample... AWESOME!!

Dry hopped with .75oz of PELLET Cascade. It will sit like this for a week at 70F.

I JUST switched over to an off brand OxyClean in place of PBW. I put about 6 gallons of 190F solution in my fermentor (2 scoops of Oxy) and within one hour the nasty krausen ring is gone. Awesome stuff.
