I've had the same thing happen with the Kolsh yeast quite a few times--last batch I run a line into a growler--wait till you open the bucketBrewed this last nite. Hit 1.056 post boil (adjusted for temp). Used a yeast starter from wyeast kolsch. 5 hours into it and it was chugging away. Had to remove airlock and use tube since the pressure pushed the stopper up. Plugged air lock. Took a sample from thief and it's very good. Can't wait till this one's on tap. I did the 90 min boil and ended up with 5.3 gallons. I'll post pics when I keg it. Slainte
Roger that. I did this one in a glass carboy this time since my son thought my fermentation bucket would be good to put beach sand in. At least I didn't have anything fermenting in it.I've had the same thing happen with the Kolsh yeast quite a few times--last batch I run a line into a growler--wait till you open the bucket
Make sure to harvest some yeast--I've got 7 batches off one smack pack I'm doin one more batch and I'll have to give this Kolsh a break for awhile
It did turn out fine, thanks! Nice warm weather beer.Congratulations on getting back to brewing. Anyways, you will end up with beer. I did this recipe again for the 100th time. I change it all the time. I dropped it down to a og of 1.043, it's cold crashing right now, and will keg in the next day or two. I'll let you know how it turns out, but I'm sure yours will be just fine.
