Let's all raise a pint to Charlie Bamforth.

Nope, we were completely dead. I guess everyone took care of the food for their parties ahead of time. I didn't mind, really - we got 8 inches of snow Friday, so this weekend was crazy. Friday to Sunday I worked 31 hours. :o

I actually managed not to find out about the game until I could get home to watch it. Touch and go there for a while, but I was loving the second half. ;)

It won't be ruined by any means, but it may have some flavors you don't really want. An extra week or two in the fermenter will help, letting the yeast clean up as many by-products as possible.

I kept track of both for several batches and never saw a variation of more than about 1°F.

What I lack in, is the ability to accurately tell the temp of the Liquid inside the fermenter...

Best three dollars you can spend, my friend:

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: How lolong will harvested yeast keep
« on: February 07, 2010, 02:39:13 PM »
Instead of washing the yeast I just make more in the starter and save the extra in the mason jar.  Works a lot better and less work involved for me.

That's my process too. I don't brew often enough to pitch harvested slurry directly, so my thinking is propagating from the unhopped low-gravity starter will give me the most life out of the yeast.

Especially impressive when you consider that everyone involved is probably on acid.

I Really like the sterile siphon idea. In fact, I used to do the same thing with and orange cap and racking cane. But, now I pretty much ferment in buckets. Any thoughts on a way to start a siphone the same way, but in a bucket?

I do the same thing with an auto siphon. I put a barb and threaded fitting on the end of the siphon tubing, so it just gets attached directly to the liquid post.

Just buy a big cooler and use it as a mash tun and a swamp cooler. You can mail me the other $460, if you want... ;)

I'm curious about that stockpot too. That perforated basket just screams "mash tun".

There are soup comps?! How do I become a judge?

I heard on NPR tonight that antacid sales the Monday after the Super Bowl increase 20%. After reading this thread, I believe it.

Secretly, I'm just jealous y'all get to watch the game.

Here's my process:

Like I said in the other thread, I don't feel that it is under-discussed. It almost always comes up in a discussion of a particular yeast strain, it's frequently included in recipes, etc. And repeated ad nauseam to newbies with questions, IME. It's just sort of a mundane topic - once you have it figured out, you don't have to worry about it again.

Oh thank god... I was NOT going to be the first one to quote Mr. Pink. :D

You'll have no problems with the extra head space, and if the pitching rate is the same then fermentation will take roughly the same amount of time.
