Yeast and Fermentation / Oxidation? Is there any recovery
« on: June 22, 2017, 03:43:27 PM »
Taste and see for yourself, but you will likely want to dump it. If your airlock has been dry for more than a day or two without active fermentation, it has gone too far.

ETA - I have no clue what your are referring to by yeast coming back to the top. I don't think whatever that is can be considered normal.

Its in a carboy, sanitized turkey baster the best way to grab?
Or a wine thief.

Pull a sample after the boil begins, cool down as close as possible to the ideal temp for your hydrometer, measure.

It's the best way to know it's done fermenting. Ready is subjective.

I'd check on day 8 and again on day 10. If they match, you're done.

Using the same malt from the same bag?

It's stainless. It would need to be thicker to be as ridged if it were aluminum.

What you are doing is fine as long as the water and container are sanitary. I used to do this all the time to top off 10 gallon batches when I didn't have quite enough room in the kettle.

La Fin du Monde is one of my favorites with a big gourmet burger.

All Grain Brewing / Bottling vs. kegging
« on: June 20, 2017, 04:03:27 PM »
so a simple solution to the problem is to eliminate low 02 brewing methods..
Ready, set, troll

ETA - I think it's more to do with people not knowing what they are missing. People like their beer, even under "normal" homebrew processes. Those that are "woke" to the low oxygen processes notice the difference as they are able to pick it out. Similar to tasting cherry after somebody mentions that they taste cherry.

Sorry for the hijack OP. This is good info for all. First hand experience with the Danby.

If I go this route, it will go in the living/dining room, keezer out in the garage. I live on the Central CA Coast, so the temp isn't a big deal.

Still a good option. MoreBeer shows the Keg King with three of the torpedo kegs, but that's more money.

Can you get three ball locks
In there with the tank outside?

Moving to a smaller apartment and may need to rethink my kegerator situation. Can likely keep the kezzer, but it may be in the detached garage.
