Because I ferment in my no chill cube.Why not just pour the wort from the cube vigorously?
Good point...Maybe I will try Razz idea and use my mash paddle in the drill. Less nooks and crannies for bugs to hide in the paddle.I'd be pretty wary of sticking something with so many moving parts and potential crevices in to my wort post-boil. You might find it works, and that it's the best thing ever, so go ahead.
That is my concern, though.
Try resting it on a footy (or other suitable semi spherical soft surface h34r: ) and rocking back and forth. A cruisy laid back way to aerate wort without electron munching buzzing tools!I usually just shake the shit out of it but that can be hard work with 18 litres of wort. It gets heavy quickly..
How the hell can you fit a mash paddle or paint mixer through the hole of a cube?Good point...Maybe I will try Razz idea and use my mash paddle in the drill. Less nooks and crannies for bugs to hide in the paddle.
just asking if he had a particular reason he didnt want to ferment in a fermentor. I know some people prefer it. I was more asking him to clarify if thats what he was meaning or whetehr I was misread the post.I ferment in the cube. Why? Because there's no need to transfer into another vessel. Because it's easier. Because cubes are great fermenting vessels. Because the infection risk is reduced. Because cubes (jerry can style) fit easily inside fermenting fridges - many have room for two. Because you only need to clean half the equipment.
