The water was sanitized distilled and no blow off stuff went in the juf during fermentation. The cold crash seemed to have separated the liquid. The yeast at the bottom, beer in the middle and the clear distilled water on top. I'll see how it taste in a few days. It smelled good while kegging.
I had a blow off tube hooked up to my carboy during fermentation. Once I checked gravity I turned down my fridge to cold crash and forgot to take the blow off tube out. I now have about 2in of the sanitized liquid on top of my beer. Should I throw it out or try and filter it off some type of way?
A quick note on water to those using RO. I have found the best water to me was from filling jugs at whole foods or any place that has Primo water. It was $0.39 a gal for me and that was an amazing price in my opinion.
I just kegged another batch and I have learned a few things. It was my first time using pellets without hop bags in boil and fermentation, learned the hard way it makes up a huge amount of trub loss. I put 6.2gal in my fermenter and only got 4.65gal into the keg. Also note I put 1500ml yeast...
So I was planning of brewing this again and noticed I might have brought the wrong stuff with my last batch. Question:
Should the type of white wheat I be using be malted or raw white wheat? Milled or no?
Also should I have milled the following: Flaked barley, Flaked Oats and the Flaked Wheat?
I just got mine carbonated in the keg and it is great. Weird thing was when I first did a force carb at 30 psi for 36 hours then 12 psi for a few hours. My first pours Saturday and Sunday were not good. It had a weird aftertaste almost grass like. Today (Monday) it had a completely different...
Sorry to bring up a old thread but I wanted to know if you could let me know what size drill bit you used for the holes? I'm about to try and mount a dual tap but don't want to screw up and make the wrong size holes.
Thanks for the tips. I was thinking of getting a paint strainer bag and use dental floss to keep the hop bag from dropping below mid way the keg. Hopefully that way I won't get any grass like flavors if the beer sits for more than two weeks or so.
