Yeah..I know that feeling! Wifey and the kid gave me an all grain from Mid West or Northern...lousy directions but thank you You Tube (props to Larry Beer N BBQ) and tons of other on line how to"s. It's funny how the lousy instructions run counter to commonly accepted practices or S O P's...I always think back to the "gently stir wort to cool it down and don't splash" line...I'm sure whoever wrote that was hyper over cold side oxidation but buddy...yeast needs oxygen to live and you just boiled all the O2 out of the wort! Ahhh Knowledge...you are a devisive mistress! @jmcnamara ...what's that floating in bag? A bobber? Oh yeah...I brewed yesterday too! First time on a Munich Cluster smash because I had a couple packets of YCH Cluster in the fridge getting long in the tooth...smelled great..it's also my first time to the dance with Omega's Lutra..I gotta snow globe going on in the cellar now!
