    Fermenting Under Pressure (Accidentally)

    Got a Mosaic IPA on last Thursday, transferred into fermenter and pitched US05 yeast. Fermented @ 19c. As I always do, I screwed down the lid of my Speidel fermenter and gave it a good swirl to mix the yeast in. Had a quick look in my brew fridge yesterday and the Speidel was all out of shape...

    Brew Fridge Heater Placement

    Managed to get myself a second hand fridge from Flebay. Got a 40w tube heater, hopefully coming today. Question is, would it be OK to place the heater on the right hand side above the light? If I build a shelf over the compressor the Speidel fermenter won't fit in height, even without the...

    Wort Chillers and the Hosepipe Ban

    I requested an exemption from United Utilities from the upcoming hosepipe ban. Filled a short form in on their website last Thursday. Had a phone call this morning from UU and was told that our chillers are exempt from the ban if we re-use the water. I told the lady that I couldn't see that info...

    Wort sieving problem

    Made my first full size (23ltr) AG brew last weekend using biab in a peco boiler. It was a Jaipur clone recipe using 140g pellet hops in total through the boil. Everything went well until it came to getting the wort from the peco into my fv. Had the bright idea of using a hop filter bag over...

    Inkbird + brewbelt

    I've been reading on another thread about linking a brewbelt with an inkbird to control fermentation temp. I'd love a brew fridge but just haven't got the space. Is this all I would need assuming it doesn't get to hot? Living in Lancashire it doesn't often get hotter than the temps I need to...

My question is, does the primary fermenting temp (18-20) refer to room temp or the temp inside the brew. Using the stick on thermometer that came...
