    Temp & Fermentation

    Hydrometer vs Refractometer ?

    Temp & Fermentation

    We like it cool, during winter at night heat is set between 60-62, day 68-71. Summer time AC is set to 66 at night, 72 for day.

    Temp & Fermentation

    Thank you for your responses. 2 LBK's will ferment with US-05 yeast @ 59-61 degrees for 2 weeks in basement. After 2 weeks the LBK's will be moved to the kitchen counter (where I bottle) for one week. That section of the kitchen counter stays between 66-69 degrees. This sounds to me like a good plan ? I'm not on board with a hydrometer yet, maybe a tilt wireless hydrometer/temperature floating sensor when/if I do.

    I quote from the Safale US-05 package, Temperature range 53.6 F to 77 F, Ideally 59 F to 71.6 F. It's my understanding fermenting at lower range of yeast is best ? I have a digital temperature gauge right next to LBK. LBKs are on a 5 feet high shelf, floor would be too cold at 55 F.

    Currently there are two partial mash recipes fermenting in the basement. Both recipes use US05 yeast, and basement is a constant 59-61 degrees. Towards the end of the 3 week fermentation should the LBKs be moved to room temperature a few days prior to cold-crashing ? I read somewhere here that it helps clean up the beer ?

    oh, with all the small citra hop additions (Zombie Dust clone recipe) are hop sacks necessary ?

    Thanks all, I now have enough knowledge to confidently pursue the Zombie Clone recipe posted by Jdub.

    How about Cryo-Citra-Pellet vs Citra-Pellet ? for the Zombie Dust clone.

    Thanks all ! Jdub: Here is a larger version of what you gave me. Crystal 60 is the correct malt. https://davidrpatterson.me/2013/09/08/when-life-hands-you-citra-hops-make-zombie-dust/

    (others can chime in) Did you use citra pellet or leaf hops ? What would be the reason to use pellet hop over leaf hop ? or leaf hop over pellet ? The best I can tell leaf hops are best for dry hopping, is this true ? Are leaf hops less sterile than pellet hops ?

    How do you crush it ? If it comes whole.

    Nectar of the Gods quest has begun ! When you steep do you use whole ?, crushed ?, I guess milled would be too fine.

    Jdub: 4 oz total (2 oz Carapils & 2 oz Crystal 60) OR 8 oz total (4 oz Carapils & 4 oz Crystal 60) Thanks

    Different strokes for different folks. A beer one would call Swamp Water, another would call a fine brew.
