Re: Hello!

Go for it Bobbie, you will not look back. After circa 5 posts you can post pictures. It would be interesting to see the kit, including the kegerator, and to know how you came up with the designs.

Re: High FG

I have just used repitched London Ale yeast (WLP013), dropped it from the FV 5 minutes ago. Due to "issues" the mash ended up circa 64. Result? 80.9% attenuation.

Re: High FG

What % of attenuation have you achieved? Is it in the range for the yeast? Try putting up to 22c.

Re: Whirl-pooling in a boiler with side element

So - I want to attempt the whirl-pool method. I have in mind that the element will cause turbulence that will mess up the central accumulation of hop debris and trub. It shouldn't affect it that much, particularly if you return the wort just under the surface rather than the bottom. The other advan...

Re: Wort clear as bell on barreling but now very hazy.

3) yeast- yep used about 60g granulated sugar to carbonate. This may be it but thought I'd be through his layer after 4 pints drawn. If it's a bottom tap then not necessarily so. If it still carbonating the yeast will still be rising through the Beer rather than dropping out, particularly as you me...

I should have added that this is no sparge, also in a brewmonk with recirc going through the entire mash.
Maybe my wort wasn't mixed properly post boil, however I was whirlpooling ( sort of )
Suggests your preboil wort and post boil wort was mixed well so looks like we're back to a reading error.

Re: Pure O2

(Thought I'd better change the title, as the topic has moved from its' starting point...) So for those who use pure O2, where do you get your cylinders from? What other equipment is needed? I'm guessing a suitable regulator? Airstone (oxygen stone)? Suitable tubing? And what costs are we looking at...

Re: Odd gravity reading

I always take my preboil sample just as the wort is coming to the boil so have never seen that, as it is already evenly mixed that must be why.

Re: Odd gravity reading

Erm, er, user error? Did the hydrometer possibly stick to the sides of the sample jar? Otherwise makes no sense, in other words, can't be. Sorry.

Re: Wyeast 1469 lag?

... For liquid it depends on who you ask. There are claims that "wet" yeast only need oxygen for building their cell walls ready for dormancy. They don't actually need it for respiration in the lag phase. Thanks for that link. I couldn't get a straight "yah or nay" to my question with it but it eve...

Re: Wyeast 1469 lag?
