    Using plastic wrap to seal fermentor

    I’ve glad wrapped the couple of years and had no problems with dry hopping. I only peel the glad wrap back enough to be able to drop in my dry hops, its a way smaller hole than taking off lid for it. Any CO2 build up just pushes its way out between the glad wrap and the seal (old lid seal)...

    Low efficiency-should I sparge with more water?

    Maybe Re calculate your boil off rate. Adjust this in brewsmith. Also what as mongey said do you have your efficiency set to. I’m a biaber and have mine set to 65% which seems to hit the marks most times (looks like I might have look and tweak some stuff to get what mongey gets!).

    2019 Hop Plantations

    Question for you experienced hop growers, I’ve got a couple of big pots with second year hops (poor harvest this year) and am wanting to plant them in the ground.

    Black Hops Hornet Clone

    Gas in Beer Line

    I’d say that your new (full one) keg has a little bit of air/gas in the pickup tube and once you connect it the air/gas goes to the highest point in the tubing. Not sure what you could do to prevent it, maybe pre prime the pick up

    Early Hop Additions to AVOID

    The stone and wood pacific ale clone recipe does with galaxy. If you FWH the early bittering addition it’s meant to be not as harsh but still get the ibu’s you want. Seems to work for me (though a mate found it still a harsh, might have to reduce it a bit more)

    2019 Hop Plantations

    My cascade has decided to start popping some flowers (well I think they are) a bit early. Do I need to cut them off or is there something else I need to do? Or just leave them Location is Riddells Creek Victoria.
