I was actually going to suggest this at the start.
What if I siphone out some of my wort into a sanitised pyrex container or something and drop some yeast in it, then see if the SG drops in that?
Or I guess see if the yeast start some activity?
Thanks for the reply mate!
My mash temp was around the 67-68 mark after the grains hit the strike water. dropped to about 65 over the hour.
I used two packets of the Liberty Bell yeast (dry) from the mangrove jacks craft series. I rehydrated them in 200ml of sanitised water and pitched it into...
So as the title says, my IPA's fermentation seems to have plateaued out at 1.020 for the past couple of days and I'm wondering if I should repitch some more rehydrated yeast or just go with it and start dry hopping?
My OG was 1.068 so It's still going to have plenty of punch around the...
Everything went great this time! Mashed in and hit 67 on the nose!
Dropped to about 65 over the hour, I had a blanket and mat wrapped around it with an old cooler bag over the top of it. Might upgrade the lagging for next time, but I think 2 degrees over an hour isn't the end of...
Ok so I've given the element cover a good scrub and its come clean. Ive put about 5 litres of water in there now and I've gotten that to boil.
Im thinking i might give it one more try in this urn but use something to seperate the grain bag from the element this time?
Yep concealed element.
I've racked all the wort to a cube now and theres a black crust all over the middle of the bottom of the urn.
Should I have sat the grain bag on a colander or something? I was told that with a concealed element you didn't need to.
Have I ruined my new urn? haha :(
Yeah I've just sent them a message via Ebay to see what's up.
I left the wort in the urn and wrapped the whole top with glad wrap to seal it. Can I still use the wort? It's sat outside overnight sealed.
Hey guys new to the forum and also new to BIAB.
I purchased a 30L urn off eBay from a home brewing supplier.
First of all the urn had a reasonably sized dent in it when it arrived, which I wasn't super happy about. I contacted the seller and ended up getting a $30 refund which is fine.
