I'm thinking a carboy cap, co2, and a racking cane with a hose going into a sanitized jar. Move the racking cane around and suck out the krausen.

This is how we prefer to collect also. Erlenmeyer flask with sterile water and a pyrex bubble tube.

One of our newest recipes that we just sampled today (cellared 4 months). This is a Belgian Pale that we're trialing with D-45. We're trying to reduce the pillowly/lacey Belgian head but nothing seems to be working

Looks good, but the head retention is really weak. Maybe you mashed too long

Dang I caught you before the edit

What has everyone done for bottle priming? I brewed the new world recipe several months ago and am getting ready to bottle. Should I pitch a new pack of the yeast, do a starter and pitch at high K, pitch champagne yeast, do nothing?

Some have actually bottled w/o a repitch. Tall_Yotie created a BJCP award winning Pannepot without a repitch. It has an ABV of 10% +. (However) we repitch to make sure we get a proper carb and the Monks at St. Sixtus report (in BLAM) that they do repitch also.

  • 500ml stir plate repitch of WLP530 (per 5.25 gal trial vol).
  • 29-30g / gallon Syrup. Usually Simplicity (Lately I've started using CSI Golden).

I didn't repitch. It took 6 months to carb properly. Which is fine considering you really don't want to drink much before then.

I don't have much to add to the thread at this point except that this is the craziest fermentation i've ever had. 12 hours into the fermentation and my jug of star-san for the blow-off needs a blow-off
