    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...

    Progress

    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...

    A couple of options... Need some advice. Pictures included!

    I want to start by saying that I'm in the process of getting a fridge big enough so that I can get on board with this whole temperature controlled fermentation thing. My last 4 or 5 beers have been good, but I feel like the subtle off flavors that I pick up can only be due to my: Set it in the...

    Brewer's Edge Mash & Boil Temp control issues

    So today was my first brew on the M&B system. I got the system as an easier alternative to traditional BIAB for winter brews. Overall I have been impressed by the unit. I did tests before today, and it brought my water up to temp in a very reasonable amount of time. However, while I have many...

    Lager Lag Times

    So I understand that there is a longer lag time than ales when it comes to lagers, just curious if I should be worried? I pitched my yeast ~50 hours ago from when I took these pictures last night. It is aproaching 65 hours now and and used my airstone and air pump for 20 min to oxygenate prior...

    Second batch rookie question. How hot is too hot?

    Hey Brewers, Quick question I am in the middle of my second batch. I am using an Witbier extract kit from Brewers Best. I was steeping my grains in a smaller pot at the correct temperatures 148-153 degrees for thirty five minutes. I then placed my thermometer inside of the grain bag and went to...

    Hi, l'm brewing my first batch (5 gallons of IPA). I'm fermenting in my cold garage and I'm controlling temp by immersing my carboy to half way in a warm water bath heated by an aquarium heater on a timer switch. I've got a stick on thermometer on the carboy and temp fluctuates between 66 and...

    Low temperatures for champagne yeast in cider

    Hi All, I'm working on my first cider batch right now. It's been close to 48 hours and there's still no bubbling in my airlock. I'm sure it's temperature related, and have some questions about that. Here's what I've done: I pressed my own apples (have about 2.5 gallons of juice that I...

    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...
