    Fermentation question

    Sorry I used LalBrew London English Dry Ale yeast for 5 gallons and pitch an entire packet at 70 degrees and storing at 68 degrees counting for differential on outside temp vs temp in bucket. I do not have a thermometer on clear bucket. Initial gravity was 1.050. Occasional bubbles in air lock.

    Fermentation question

    I have brewed two extract kits and the krausen on top was noticeable with some greenish byproduct which I assume is likely from the hops.

    My first batch of Amber Ale looked horrible, see pics below. I wish I had your problem. Poured out 5 gallons. Tasted fine, but couldn’t get past the look.

    Keezer

    My wife told me I could I to have the Keezer if I put a hutch for some of her kitchen stuff. The one on the right only has one shelf and then the bottom is open to facilitate heat transfer off the compressor. I have a mobile island in my beer room with all my beer gear.

    Keezer

    Yes, had to make sure the hitch was tall enough to cover the clearance of the tap. Left the back open so I I ever have to change freezer I can just pull it out.
