Not Pitching
« on: February 08, 2015, 11:23:13 PM »
Just want to confirm that I can leave my wort overnight in the fermenter without pitching. It's covered with aluminum foil for now (I could put on airlock).

It's a bit too high to pitch by about 5 degrees, not sure if it'll drop down and I'm too lazy to get ice tonight.

Yes.  With good sanitation there is nothing to worry about.

I do the same thing when I brew at night.  Wake up in the morning and it's ready to pitch.

After letting the wort sit for long periods do you re-areate it?

At least in my case I ONLY aerate before pitching so I'm only doing it once.

Yeah I realized my question didn't make much sense. I aerate with gravity while transferring to the fermenter. If I continued this process I suppose I would just have to aerate again. I would probably only leave overnight if I was doing a lager.
