I did the same....
And I will re-use the trub. Somehow
Watching my tilt pinball around in the fermenter via the readings. Say it's 0.990 currently and attenuated 115%...I'm fairly certain it got stuck on a hop tube or floating diptupe in there
Marbe a good shake to free it up?
I always dump em in!
Ordered ingredients for an extra stout to be brewed mid February with a buddy.
Not a bad idea. It's still producing CO2 so I'm gonna let it ride for now
I brewed my first beer in a year. Work has been hectic and I just didn't make time when I got home. So here is my single hop, "Cashmere Sweater". I sealed up the fermenter to carbonate under pressure, about 4-9psi and transferred to the keg under pressure through a Bouncer filter. We are pleased with the result.
I hope it tastes as good as it looks!
Filled a 60 gallon drum with mountain spring water to brew with tomorrow. No exciting pictures, just a peaceful drive up to the mountains. Bit of snow after I got off the blacktop roads, but nothing crazy.
Dry hopped my Pride of London Porter with 1.5 oz Target pellets (in a bag). Did a speedy clean of lid and slightly gunked up quiet airlock (since day 4) whilst waiting for the well frothed test jar to settle. SG at 1.022 from OG of 1.052. Last time I made this which turned out excellent the corresponding figures at the same stage albeit in springtime rather than winter as it is now were 1.024 from 1.046. That start temperature was 19 degrees C. This was 21 as I always go slightly higher in colder weather. Plus it has the insulating wrapped around.
I added 1oz hops to that brew and it turned out slightly under expected ABV at 4.5% with the bitterness pushed back once it had matured. I am hoping to gradually learn a bit more about the balance in taste. Got plenty of wiggle room in future as this kit comes with a shade over 3oz pellets. I also used some for another Porter kit which did not come with hops and they worked fine if not even better. A couple of years ago I wouldn't have dared try anything like that.
Airlock has started bubbling again straight away. I can relax a bit now and plan to come back to it on Day 10. I would settle for 5% but I think it could be slightly higher.
Kegged a Cream Ale. Bunyip in the background.
Not much headspace in that Bunyip! Shouldn't be an issue with US-05 though I would think
Fermentation is pretty much over. I had a blow-off set up and switched to a standard air-lock once things quieted down. BRY-97 on the job.
Got a little cleaning done and the Irish Red is boiling….
I'm in the middle of brewing my Torpedoman 2nd Class. I remembered to mill the grain twice. Pre-boil gravity hit 1.048 over expected 1.046. My wife came down to the ManBeerCave and requested spent grain for bread. I feel so lucky, I may go buy a lottery ticket.
Transferring my Bunyip into a keg. This will probably be the last time I drop hops straight into the fermenter without a sack.
Keeps plugging the outlet. I had to put a scale under the keg so I can tell when the beer is moving.
I checked my new brew (sort of de koninck) and it's bubbling away in the blow off tube.
Pipe was a bit too thin for the stopper, but it looks like I made it work.
I got a bit over 10.5 ltr in the 12 litre speidel, so didn't trust the airlock.
Carbonation of bunjippy is going well
Using BRY-97, with a little more headspace than @Megary the Krausen rose all the way into the base of my bubbler before I switched to a blowoff tube. It didn’t overflow, but it was that close. Speaking of which, I need to check gravity, and if close to FG (it should be after 15 days) get some dry hops in the fermenter.
Oh nothing worse yeah I started bagging dry hops after some crappy transfers and ive not has much issues since touch wood.
