    Open fermentation and low o2 brewing

    Anyone with experience on open fermentation and dissolved o2 of this? Are they allowing o2 from the atm to dissolve into the open fermentation , and allowing yeast to get to that at the surface and reproduce, somewhat preserving the below wort from oxidation, then moving to closed ferementation...

    Open fermentation question

    During open fermentation, alot of factors we control with closed fermentation are exposed. When a brewer uses this method, how are factors like oxygen, bacterial/wild yeast, etc dealt with. There are some big name European brewers still using open fermentation, i believe pilsner urquell and...

    Steeping grains after the boil

    I was thinking about adding the steeping grains after flameout. I hop at 170-180 after boil and let sit for a while. I am wondering if I can add my steeping grains at around 160 and keep it at 150-155 for 30 minutes. I guess I am trying to avoid bringing what the steeping grains add to the wort...
