A wise man once told me, regardless of brewing style, the three steps to successful brewing are:-
2) Temperature Control
IN THAT ORDER!!!!!!!!!
and without 1 and 2 you might as well forget 3.
Master 1 and 2 and play around all you want with 3.
Am leaning towards the blow off tube, gunna screw lids on with orings and use the bottom of a 2 piece airlock with some hose attached, into a flask with boiled water.
seamad, I'm using one smack pack per 21L
Brewed and cubed my first Weissbiers (a Hefe and a Dunkleweizen) yesterday and are looking at pitching some freshly smacked 3068 in each, in the next day or so.
I have 21 litres of each wort and they will be going in the old style 30litre Cooper's fermentors and are planning on pitching at 12...
