    When fermenting, should i follow the yeast bags instructions or the receipies?

    and you know what, that's exactly why i asked. I've been blindly following recipes for the past few batches / taking notes until i started getting comfortable with the process to start asking questions :) .

    When fermenting, should i follow the yeast bags instructions or the receipies?

    Hmm, i guess there was a chance i looked at the wrong yeast package. I do have a yeast for an IPA i'll be making in some short time. Ok that's fine, thanks for the quick response. Thanks to using BrewPi i'm able to adjust the temp from work :) . I'm not terribly concerned but I am curious...

    What stopper do you use for a thermowell for a 5gal glass carboy?

    Hi Folks, I have a 5 gallon glass carboy and a 16" thermowell with a 3/8" outer diameter. I put the thermowell within my plastic primary. That was easy enough since you can easily drill a plastic hole in the lib and put a rubber grommet in. For a glass carboy though I'm less clear. I've...
