    Coopers golden ale recipe help

    @hoppy2B hey just a quick question, there is way too much trub it's actually over the drainage plug, I'm thinking to rack the brew to a clean water container (frantelle water) while I clean out the fermenter then put the brew back in it and cold crash, as I won't be able to bottle my beer with...

    Coopers golden ale recipe help

    So you don't put a lid on you just seal it with glad wrap? Do you find it better then using a air lock system? As my fridge does not fit the airlock I had to make a bottle with water with plastic tubing that leads into the top of the fermenter

    Coopers golden ale recipe help

    I ended up rehydrating the bry-50 and only throwing that in. I've got it in the fridge at 18 degrees, since I didn't pitch the coopers yeast how much longer should I let this brew ferment before I dry hop it? Or should I just wait until the fermentation stops bubbling away ? Cheers for the advice

    Another brew fridge question

    Hey all! I recently got my hands on another brew fridge, as the first would not cool lower the 20 degrees (hunk of junk) My problem now is that it is a bar fridge which has a top freezer compartment.
