    Had fermenter lid open for hours before adding yeast

    Hi, I added in my wort and topped it to 25l (I had to add ice cubes and wrap a wet towel around the fermenter to cool it down before adding the yeast) I had the lid open for about 5 hours as I let it cool down before adding the yeast at the correct temperature. Is this okay to do? Will it...

    How to oxygenate 5 gallon batch?

    I recently got a 5 gallon carboy and I love it, but I'm wondering if there is a better way to oxygenate it. For the last batch I filled it half way and shook it then filled it the rest of the way. It seemed to work ok, but I have to imagine only shaking half of it and then waiting 24 hours for...

    Did I just dead my yeast?

    Hello folks I'm new to Homebrewtalk and I'm looking forward to get to know more about mead making. I recently started to making my first mead. When I started my gravity (OG) was 1.110 and I wanted to make 14L mead in a 25L fermenter (I couldn't find anything smaller). 10.5L water for 5 kg...

    Let's talk about Oxygen.

    So far, I have not oxygenated any of my beers. Seems to work okay. Using US-05 yeast either pitched fresh on new wort, or left in the trub and the next batch poured directly on it. I have even gone so far as to purge the fermenter with C02, thinking it was a good idea because Oxygen is the enemy...

    Oxygenating/aerating tea prior to primary fermentation?

    Hello, community! I am moving from homebrewing beer to making kombucha, and I'm working to see what of my beer making gear I can adapt for kombucha use. I have an oxygenation stone for aerating wort and I'm wondering if the SCOBY yeasts benefit from well-oxygenated tea, just like yeasts benefit...

I will need to make sure I have...

    Where do You Find Notable Difference with Oxygenation Stones?

    I've been trying out some oxygenation stones (both 0.5 micron + O2 tank, and aquarium pump + 2 micron stone) lately. My standing process is I pass the wort through a strainer as I transfer from kettle to fermentor and let that aerate/splash. I did two trials where I split my wort into 3...

    Fermentation Oxygenation Study- Looking for Input

    I'm planning to do a hands-on review to compare the effect/effectiveness of an "oxygenation stone + oxygen tank" vs. "oxygenation stone + aquarium pump" vs. "none of the above". I plan to make one large batch, split it into 3 identical fermentors, with identical temperature control systems, and...

    Loss of hop aroma before bottling.

    Hey guys, this is my first proper post so I hope it is in the correct area. Please have it moved it if is better suited somewhere else. I recently brewed an imperial IPA (1 gallon) which tasted great when I tried a little before bottling, during the check of the gravity after 2 weeks...
