    Two fermenters same fridge

    I've done 2 fermenters in 1 fridge. But i staggered the timing. Temp controlled one til krausen had dropped then put 2nd fermenter in and temp controlled that one. Let 2nd one finish then use ambient to raise temp of both for diacetyl rest. Then cold crashed em both. Adds a week to the first one...

    First Stout - it's gone berserk!

    I have i did. Funny comment based on not knowing what yeast i was using. And i aim for 17°c at start for most ferments But yeah if it still got 3 inches of foamy krausen i think it was fermenting fine

    Adding dex /ldme to an all grain stout

    Probably why it is reported to thin the beer slightly. It is adding water... Roughly 100mL for every kg dex Nice science👍

    Adding dex /ldme to an all grain stout

    Aiming for 6% i wouldn't call that big. Most of my brews have been about that and they're all gone in 2 months. I had a dark ale in pet bottles for 7 years. Forgot them at the folks place. Tasted like nectar...

    Adding dex /ldme to an all grain stout

    Thanks Yep 22 litre batch 500dex 500 malt I just work on 10g sugar per 100ml water. 2kg per 20 litre =1.040 Or 1kg sugar to 20 litre =1.020 Didn't consider malt would up fg a little. Thanks I went 29g columbus (16%) recipe was 19g so I've probably got a bit of room to add sweetness

    Adding dex /ldme to an all grain stout

    I've done an all-grain stout. Pale malt, flaked barley and roast barley (66%, 20%, 10%) OG 1.042 mashed around 68°c . So probably won't finish real low. But i like my beers nearly 6% alc. If i add 1kg dex (or 500 dex 500 ldm) will it ruin it? Was going for a guinnesss clone and have 800ml...
