So I got an infection. It's in a brand new bucket too! It does have a plastic spigot as well. I suspected a bad batch of yeast due to no airlock activity after 4 days so I took a gravity sample through the spigot. Not sure if that's how I introduced the nasties or when I pitched new yeast...
I used us-05 on this as I don't really care for Hefeweizen yeast either. Didn't care for it at all. Over the top fruity/lime.Something about the yeast I think mellows that out. If I were to do it again I would use an American wheat yeast.
Brewed a Belgian pale and I'm picking up on a kinda sweet smell. I take a drink and it tastes just like that smell I'm getting. My FG was 1.011 so I don't feel like that's my problem. Maybe it is. Here is the recipe. 90 min boil for the Pilsner malt
Wanting to try fermenting in my keggle. Is their anyway I could spin my ball valve/pickup tube assembly to use it as a racking arm. I see where the new anvil kettle ferment kit add a Teflon washer in between the valve to allow it to spin. Think this could work for me?
