    Voss Kveik Fermentation Temp Schedule

    Hey guys, I’m currently fermenting my beer with the Voss Kveik yeast strain, and holding temps at 40 deg C (104 F) with a heat blanket. Fermentation began within an hour (lots of CO2 out of airlock!) and has been going for 48 hours. Plan to rack off in 5 days. After fermentation is complete...

    Esters in No Chill

    Hey all. I've been experimenting with no chill brewing lately.. Usually leave the finished wort in the kettle until it's cool enough to transfer into my bucket (usually around 90F or so). This last batch, I did a short and shoddy version of a blonde ale I've done before. The previous...

    What is the optimal ale fermentation temp?

    I have been brewing for many years, all ales. I never had a fermentation chamber, so my general goal was to keep the temps steady with a target of 65F being "good" and below 60F and above 72F being "bad". Just two weeks ago I got a used freezer for a fermentation chamber. Now that I can...

    Cooling medium in fermentation chiller question

    I just recently built a new son of fermentation chiller, maiden voyage was supposed to be tonight, and I neglected to buy some gallon jugs of water and freeze them ahead of time... I had a similar build years ago and I recall the gallon jugs working ok for a while, but eventually splitting and...

    Souring beer w/ WLP 655 in the low 70s?

    Greetings all, I've got a 9 month-old Flemish Red on the go, 1.051 OG, 15 IBU, simple infusion mash at 154 F. Nothing fancy like turbid mash. I had planned on the Roeselare blend but no luck when shopping, so got the WLP 655 instead and pitched it with Wyeast 3787. The primary was pretty...

    Neipa with Wyeast 1968 ESB...Stuck fermentation?

    Hi all. I have only been brewing for a few months now and I have only been doing one gallon batches. For my 6th brew, I decided to try a NEIPA and wouldn't you know they were out of London III so I grabbed the 1968 ESB because I wanted to brew in short order. My brew went well and I treated my...

    Fermentation Temps - Ales

    I have what seems to be a simple question, but I have seen conflicting information on this topic. I have brewed about a dozen 5 gallon extract batches since I started brewing back in January and have been very happy with just about all of them. So far I have been fermenting in an interior...

    Keeping Temps Down for Fermentation

    HI All, I attempting to make a Hefeweizen recently, and to keep it cool, tried the swamp cooler. The problem that i ran into with this is that when i put the hef into it i dropped a 1 gallon water jug to keep the temps down. It fermented at what i think was 60* or so, but i wasn't able to amply...

    saison off flavour from heat mat?

    I just racked a split batch: 3 fermenters, 3 separate saison yeasts (WLP566, M29 and BE-134). I have two heaters (the flat mat type that goes under the fermenter) + controllers for each. The set-up I settled on was to control the WLP566 batch and M29 batch and then I balanced the BE-134 on top...

    Secondary Fermentation Temperature Sensitivity

    I moved a batch of IPA to a carboy yesterday, everything seemed fine. I had tried to keep temperature in the 20-22 deg C range for the first 4 days, then let it drift - it went to around 19 C for the rest of the week it spent in the primary. Temperature reading was on an externally mounted...

    Concerns for first brew...

    So, I recently ordered the deluxe starter kit from MoreBeer--it is supposed to arrive next week. I have done a couple of dry runs with simply boiling hot water. Although I have learned several things doing so, I also have a major concern--fermentation temperature. So, I downloaded the...

    Temp impact on flavor in NEIPA

    Hi Folks, New to the forum and first post so bear with me, it's lengthy. I've brewed about 4-5 NEIPA's recently with pretty good results for a very new brewer. There is really just one thing I've begun to notice about them, the flavor is very similar regardless of the hops I use! After reading...

    cheap fermwrap

    I saw somewhere that the heat tape used in terrariums is the same thing as a fermwrap, but for 1/3 the price. :rockin: You might be able to find the materials at a local reptile/aquarium/pet shop and do your own assembly. I went the easy route and ordered from these guys and the assembly...
