Okay, I put my kegging frustrations aside and decided to continue my Belgian adventure. I really should read the labels first though. Started with a Westmalle which I quickly realised was quite strong. Reading the label it is a Tripel! Not so frustrated now, lol.
2 fucking hours, nearly a half a metre of beer line wasted. Beer disconnect barb still refuses to go into beer line at all a=or if it does it simply tears the beer line. The other one took 30 seconds. What am I doing wrong?
Okay weird one today. Did two no chill brews, my first. During the second the PID wouldn't rise the temp, it just kept dropping. I stopped the recirc and turned off the element and after 10 minutes turned it all back on and it was fine. Weird. No scorched element, I can't work out what happened.
Washed yeast for the first time today. Saw 3 distinct layers and used the calculator on MrMalty for a thin Slurry. Pitched into a fresh batch, hopefully should know if it was successful fairly quickly.
