I'm expecting some monumental action on my next brew. I've heard I can use ferm cap in the primary (I wont be using a secondary).
Should I use it? How much should I use? And should I still use a blow of tube?
"Can I pour you a draft, Mr. Peterson?"
"A little early, isn't it Woody?"
"For a beer?"
"No, for stupid questions."
There are some yeasts that seem to ignore it (Belgians in particular). I use it all the time and put a blow-off on every-time. Usually I'm fine, but sometimes I'm thankful for having the tube on there.
