    Finished fermenter

    Well, I switched my old freezer out and made it into a fermenter. I built it like my keezer, just no collar. I have an STC1000 I am using as my temp controller and an old lamp as my heat source. I worked well with a 5 cubic foot, so it should work with the older 7 cubic foot. I used bead...

    Altbier plastic taste

    I just bottled an Altbier after 2 weeks in primary and 2 weeks in secondary and it has a plastic taste, not smell. Will bottle conditioning mellow out the taste?

    I brewed an IPA and an Altbier last Saturday and fermentation has almost ceased. I won't be able to move to secondary for at least another week (the 14th or 15th of October). Does anyone see any issues or problems with the potential delay? Brent

    Midwest Belgian Honey Ale fermentation in Keezer

    I brewed a Belgian Honey Ale from Midwest and for the last month, I have been keeping in a soft side cooler as a fermentation chamber. I am getting tired of swapping out the ice packs every two days. What would happen if I let the secondary fermentation happen in my keezer. I keep temp...
