I was contemplating heating it up to a boil and then shutting it off, covering it (tinfoil or something to more or less seal it, plus kettle lid), and then getting back to it tomorrow.
I will attempt to post some pictures later. I went to do so only to discover the basement is flooding.
Have to take care of that first.
To respond to a few suggestions. Yes, I forgot to mention I have tried it without the scrubby. Yes I have tried it with water only. It worked one time and not another. I have cleaned out the ball valve by running a dip tube type brush through it plus running a hose backward through it. Looks clear.
I will get picks so you folks can help diagnose before I rebuild.
I understand the concept of CO2 being CO2. My concern is that I over carbed the Tripel, is it possible to over carb naturally? or does the beer hit some sort of equilibrium and stop carbing?
A question tengential to the OPs question:
After you finish a mash, how long can a wort sit before the boil?
I've let them sit in my boilkettle for a few hours before with no problems, but today I find myself faced with the possibility of having to wait until tomorrow (24-36 hours) before I can boil. Life sometimes interupts even the best planning!
I'm inclined to think that since it's pre-boil that this isn't going to be any sort of issue, as long as i can keep my cat from taking a swim in it or some equally catastrophic (pun intended) problem occurs.
So I will be spending a night or two in boulder in Late july. What are the top one or two places I can get some exciting local brew and decent food (Something vegetarian)Vegetarian in Boulder?
I've been researching this a little, as well.
The BJCP Guidelines say to use Northern Brewer & I've heard folks say that NB is the absolute one to use.
On the other hand, I've seen several recipes that include Cascades.
Now...If I was to go with a historical re-enactment of the recipe, from the late 1800s & early 1900s, Cascade would not be an option, since it was not released until sometime around 1981 (I think).
In fact...NB were not available until 1934.
Does anyone have recommendations/ideas for which hop breeds may have been used, in the late 1800s?
...and Bob's your uncle.
