This looks like a great summer brew! This will be my first cold crash. Should I:

1. Ask swmbo if I can take over the kitchen fridge for a few days to cold crash a carboy?, or
2. Ferment in a corny, or rack to a corny as a secondary and then cold crash the corny in my kegerator?

I've read a lot of threads that discuss corny fermenters. How do you provide your airlock/blowoff? After fermenting, how do you transfer to serving keg?

First, I didn't ferment in a corny, I transferred it from my carboy to the corny. Since its already fermented out, I don't provide any blow off for cold crash. As a matter of fact, I pressurized it to about 15 PSI and cold crashed for 4 days. Then set the gas on it to 11 and a week later pulled the first pint and dumped it out. Pulled the next pint and it was clear and yummy.

Hear that. This is one of my favorites on HBT.

This was my first HBT recipe and first All-Grain batch and its a huge hit. Im going to need to brew it again especially now that it is almost summer time.

I am sending a bottle to The Beer Clinic to get a BJCP judges score on the pint. I'll post his review once I get it.

OK, I converted this to extract and here's what I came up with instead of all grain.

5# Pilsner LME
3.5# Wheat DME


It wound up tasting delicious. I'll definitely brew it again. Color is a tad darker than I thought it should be, but the taste oh the taste.

Nice, just cracked my first bottle of this, 2 weeks primary, cold crashed in the secondary for 4 days and 2 weeks in the bottle. Excellent brew just in time for warm weather and yard work.

Crisp, clean and refreshing. Cheers.

Chose this as my first AG...you can read about my shambles of a brew day on the beginners forum....I have just racked it to a secondary for cold crashing and it still remains very very cloudy. Is this expected?

On the up side it already tastes great....no extract twang...like real beer. At last, I have made real beer. Albeit I now have about 3 gallons of left
