    Major Ice Build Up In My Coffin Kegerator

    I built a coffin kegerator about six months ago. Made for four taps but just has one installed currently. Put my first beer in about four months ago and kicked it about a month ago. I’ve been sooo busy I have been unable to clean my lines out or brew another beer until now. Kept the kegerator...

    Dry hopping temperature

    What do people think of the idea that the temperature you dry hop at can impart different flavour characteristics to the beer? Generally my standard dry hop regime is to finish fermentation then cool the beer from around 20C/68F down to 14C/57F and add hops. Leave for 3 days and then crash cool...

    Heating a keezer/fermentation chamber: best options?

    I am using my custom-made keezer as a temperature-controlled fermentation chamber, at least during the holidays. I was checking the temp while I was away (it sends the temperature info to a server via the Wi-Fi) and I noticed that it wasn't oscillating or even reaching the minimum temperature I...

    Yeast and drastic temp changes

    So, I have a new controller and wanted to ferment in my keezer. (Nothing else was in there at the moment). I put in my fermentation bucket that has a probe inside of it. I plugged in the fridge to the controller. It took the temp all the way down into the 50s. So i thought maybe the basement...

    White whispy mead sediment after fermentation

    Hey guys, my last three batches of mead have turned up with this weird looking yeast post ferment and it smells very sour. I haven't run into this problem with the last 10 gallons I've made though. I was wondering if anybody has run into problems like this. I don't think it infected as I'm very...

    Hi I’m doing my first homebrew and I’m on day 3 of fermentation, just wondered if some more experienced homebrewers could take a look at the images and help me confirm no bacteria’s gotten into it. Also my current temperatures at about 17.6c and is this a bit too warm for fermentation and will...

    Between Brews: Controlling Gas Fired Burners

    There is a strong trend these days toward hot side temperature control, whether merely to maintain stable mash temperatures or to permit automatic temperature ramping, as for step mashes or for mashout.

    New or Used Fridge for a Fermentation Chamber?

    I should probably begin with where I brew, as I believe this has played a huge role in my process. I live and brew in south Mississippi. Our 95 degree heat in the summer provides another challenge in the process of fermenting. I know what you are thinking, “Just put the fermenter in the cool...

    Craft The Perfect Draft - Control Your Temperature

    When I look back and think about all the hours I've spent reading about beer brewing over the years I can't believe there's still something out there that I haven't tried incorporating into my brewing process yet. One year my push was into brewing all grain, one year was all about yeast...

    How does temperature fluctuation affect my brew during fermentation?

    After consulting Dr Google i understand: 1. If too hot the yeast will freak out and I’ll risk a banana/solvent flavours 2. If too cold the yeast won’t ferment the sugars Is that correct? What about during fermentation? Can’t seem to find anything explaining what could happen if temperature...

    Tilt hydrometer for temperature control

    I'm not sure if someone else has already done this so I decided to share this idea with you. So once I bought a Tilt hydrometer which I'm very pleased with I started thinking of how else I can use it so that those 135 bucks are paid off. I came up with this idea of a fully wireless...

    Finally got a chest freezer need advice on most effective way to set up temp control

    Hey guys! So I finally found a chest freezer that was big enough for my two fermenters and also has room in case I decide to brew bigger batches. I used my Ink-Bird temp controller on my kegerator for the last batch of beer I brewed so I have a decent idea of how it works. For the kegerator, I...
