CliffMongoloid is correct. It's the temp probe from my STC-1000 buried under a layer of foam to try and isolate the temperature as much as possible.

Looks pretty rigged, but it works!

Brewed this up Saturday and all I can say is I never expected as crazy of a fermentation. Wow! Just a laugh riot sitting and watching it go crazy. Blow off is a must for this. Smells are fantastic.

I have a couple ideas going through my mind for this beer. I'm really thinking of doing a Belgian Stout/Porter this year, and I tend to like Porters mroe than Stouts, some Stouts just are too acrid and harsh on the roasty bitterness.

With that said has anybody used WLP002? I have some washed fro ma Porter I did earlier this year and don't see why it wouldn't work here. I'm also thinking of either makinig two batches or splitting one and using WLP550 - Belgian Ale or WY3522 - Belgian Ardennes, since I have those washed as well to make a Belgian Porter.

I just tasted my latest batch of this and it plain sucks, not sure what went wrong with the batch. When I tasted it just after fermentation ended it was hash, not delicious and roasty like previous batches. I figured it would clean up with some time and left it in primary for 6 weeks. It got better when I went to keg it but still not great, it tasted a bit off and finished really thin. I figured carbonation would help. After being carbed its better, but still not like my last 4 batches.

Not sure where I went wrong, will have to go over my notes again. The batch is drinkable, but not really shareable, it does not live up to the quality of my previous attempts at this.

O well, I will just have to make another batch soon!

In hindsight I should have just let it sit in primary for a while. I might just take it off the gas and let it warm up and sit for a few months to see if that helps it any. Thoughts?

Brewing this up now. The mash smelled awesome. Hit pre boil dead on. Excited for this batch, my first try at a porter. I'm going to add some coffee and vanilla beans to the secondary too.

How much cold pressed coffee to add? I've seen anywhere from 2 oz beans in 8 oz water to almost 4x that. Looking for a more than subtle coffee flavor here.

I'm thinking about using 4oz cold steeped added to the secondary.

I've done both, 8oz is great for a strong coffee flavor in a big beer, if you only want mild coffee flavor do 4oz cold brewed... delicious
