Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast for a chocolate stout?

I use 04 in all my Stouts / Porters. I ferment it in the low 60's, ambient.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Going to rehydrate

That's just it, I didn't rehydrate this time, either. But, that's the beauty of pantless brewing. 24 hour + lag, and I was cool as a cucumber.  ;D

  When you doe in, you need to do a really good stir, five mins or so. Then, what I do is use a digital thermometer, and stir with that. The temp varies by a bit, but as long as it is a close average, I'm happy with it.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Kraeusen removal, what difference does it make

Would I be able to spoon off the krausen, each day during heavy fermentation?

Curse my pin locks with no relief valves! Guess I could always put a lock on the gas post.

Equipment and Software / Re: Brew kettle thoughts
« on: February 13, 2010, 06:05:59 PM »
My opinon, get as mch pot as you reasonably can afford. Valves and all that can be added later. Right now, it's all about size. I know you say you never see yourself doing 10 gal batches. Neither did I. spend a little extra now, and it will save you in the long run. If you buy a 10 gal now, some day you will want to step up to bigger batches, and then you will be looking for a bigger kettle. Again. Just go big now. You will not regret it.
   As for the valve, I added a valve to my my 16.25 gal pot, and I still transfer with my auto siphon. Don't worry about a valve. It's not a must have.

Equipment and Software / Re: Sweet Deal in Copper Tubing
« on: February 13, 2010, 06:16:44 AM »
       not sure i'm understanding this, (stir your wort opposite of coil flow)  do you mean the liquid inside the coil, or the curvator of the copper itself. i already have whirlpool cooling using a pump. i gotta try this, mabey i going the wrong direction, i'm always looking for a better way.  
  

If your chiller flows clockwise, stir your wort counter-clockwise. And, vice-versa.
