Recipe?

Bad news, that beer is likely toast. All that oxygen so late was a bad move. Sorry.

 I don't know if it is so bad it can't be used. Pre-boiling could help reduce the hardness and dilution might be an economical compromise.

Pretty cool man. The controller on the floor is a bit wonky and I think they missed he mark in not allowing step programming. Price is solid.
Oh. I was under the impression that you could step mash. What a bummer.
I recently watched some of The Beerery videos, it was cool to see the wort change from cloudy to crystal clear during the steps.

You can still step mash, just not automated.

There is a recent post.

I just made one recently.

1.25 gal water
4oz chopped ginger
8oz sugar
8oz equivalent stivia (mine was 20 packs
1/4 cup lime juice.
1/2 tsp ginger powder for a touch of heat.

Steep ginger and sweetner for an hour in half gallon. Strain into rest of water and lime juice.

Not saying fully automated, through I wouldn't mind that.

As long as the liquid is a constant temp, the grain temp difference will be of minimal concern

When active fermentation is complete a drop in temperature is normal. The temperature drop will cause negative pressure in the fermentation vessel. This is a good time to use an "S" type airlock. The "S" type allows gas exchange in either direction without liquid passage. Using sanitizer or spirits in the airlock will minimize the possibility of contamination from incoming air.
Properly filled 3-piece airlocks will allow air to flow back as well. Maybe some liquid, but minimal.

Yeast and Fermentation / Isolating Wild Yeast

Small changes in temperature can cause the headspace to become more dense and suck in. This happens with my 7.5 gallon fermenters with 5.5 gallons of beer. If the fermentation hasn't kicked off or is slowing down, not enough gas is getting kicked out to counter it. This happens when the temp is off by as little as half a degree F.

Joe, my foam has been great since going with a gentle boil. Love it

Your links are broken. If you have a lot of headspace, decreases in temperature can cause air to be sucked in.

Maybe they should include a widget to help bust up the clog

No.  When in glass you can see it when it unglues from the bottom but in a can you need to make sure it is mixed. Alternatively if you are dumping in a starter you can transfer back and forth  until you transfer it all.

Sounds like a recipe for yeast face. I haven't messed with any of the thick strains.

You need to shake it extremely hard for at least 2-3 minutes. Then leave it alone for 10 minutes. Then open it. Be ready to dump it in the container you will use, eg, Erlenmeyer flask.

You're joking?
