I have now made 4 all grain brews (albeit, small brews as I don't have the capacity for a 5 gallon brew). One thing I don't get is hot break nor cold break. All I have left in the bottom is hops material (from hops pellets.)
Are my boils not strong enough? I boil for 60 min, but it isn't a vigorous boil, more like a rolling boil. To cool, I put it in a sink of water with a lot of ice and I can get a 3 gallon pot down to 85 degrees in about 15-20 min. Is that too long to cool to get cold break?
I am not really worried about it as my first two AG brews were fantastic. I except my next two to be great, as the wort tasted great before fermentation. So, I don't fret, I am asking cause I am just curious.
Output 2012: 56 gallons
Goal 2012: 120 gallons
