    Keeping Fermentation Temperature

    I am going to do that, thanks.

    Keeping Fermentation Temperature

    Guess I'll look for the plug first. Would there be must difference between wort temp inside the LBK vs. the temp in the cooler using the probe on the controller?

    Keeping Fermentation Temperature

    My cooler is the plug in kind, but I have misplaced the AC adapter. Do you know if I could hook up something similar to this?

    Keeping Fermentation Temperature

    2 bags of ice currently while bottles are freezing and I'm at 21 degrees. Summer AC is on all the time so that should help.

    Keeping Fermentation Temperature

    Second batch of Diablo IPA now fermenting in a cooler in my basement. I can't get the temp below 23 c. What do you you guys do to run a steady temp of 18-20c? Ice packs?

    First batch bottled yesterday

    What temperature should room temperature be? I bottled my first batch on Sunday, and put them in a dark corner of the basement. I am at 75 degrees down there, moved to a different part of the house and still about the same.

    International Shipping

    Like any shipping from US to Canada, I've found its best to find a Canadian supplier or source as shipping and duty fees are usually outrageous. I mostly use Amazon, but I wouldn't think they sell any hops.

    I don't have anyone to brew with, but I wish I did!

    Wort Temperature

    One can of Canadian Blonde. It's been under the stairs in the basement fermenting - cool and dry.

    Wort Temperature

    I was steady 68-69.

    Wort Temperature

    I'm within the recommended temp as per the Mr. Beer video, but I'm learning that those directions may not be optimal.

    Wort Temperature

    In that case, I may be running slightly warm. One week left on fermentation, should I try and cool down to 65 at this point?

    Wort Temperature

    From reading the forums, the general rule of thumb is wort temperature should be 68 degrees. Would a temperature strip that's used on the outside of an aquarium work fine for this? Does a hydrometer tell the temp as well or just the alcohol level?
