That's great to hear. I will pull that Zymurgy back out and reread the story, then get my hands on some Clarity-Ferm.

OK, did I mention I use pellets, and would the bags work for those?That's basically what I do. I have all my recipes scaled to 6 gallons. Usually half a gallon or so stays behind in the BK with most of the hops/break. Then I lose another quart or so to the yeast cake at the bottom of the fermenter. Then I always end up with just over 5 gallons into the keg.
Next question..... I have a pickup tube with a 90 that gets all of the wort out of my BK, including the hot break... I am now starting to read that that is not good. Some people have just the drain valve on the side of the kettle, and whirlpool the wort to keep all the trub from getting out. Don't worry about the 1/2 gallon or so you may leave behind, just figure it into the grain/water bill.....??
