Re: Live IPA brew day

So I have to different pre boil gravities, hydro reads 1.044 and refrac read 1.040 so I'm going with 1.042. Efficiency is down a bit from my average if 66% so far, but I'm sure will still make a tasty beer. If the hydrometer sample was measured at 20c then the OG was what it said, 1.044. You will h...

No. I was so appalled by the results of kits in the 70's I didn't brew again until 2011. :lol:

Further proof, if any is needed, that there is not a lot new under the sun, try this thread for disccussions on the virtues of a floating dip tube. See my post on page 3 for a couple of links to particularly cheap versions.

Does the Beer clear when it warms up? If not it could be a biological haze i.e. some kind of infection.
