I double decocted an O-fest and when I check the hydrometer it smells like heaven. Oh yeah, 4 days into a nice cold ferment I'm also already at 1.024. I propped up the starter perfectly.

I just wish my thermometer didn't break in this batch!!!!!! SWMBO already agreed to let me make another, but I feel like it's such a waste. Oh well. At least I think it'll be better next time around. I hope.

What a friggin tease.....

I use digital temperature sensors. I do not let glass near my beer either. I ferment in Sanky kegs now. It is much better for safety.

Fermentor 1: Bill's House Ale II, Fermentor 2: German Helles, Fermentor 3: Bill's Schworzbier (Black Bier)
Tap 1: Bill's House Ale II, Tap 2: German Hefewizen, Tap 3: Nut Brown Ale
Future Brews: Stone IPA Clone, Blonde Ale, Budvar Clone, Newcastle Clone
New toy: Blichmann 27 gallon fermentor
