    Fermenting in cold garage

    Cheers Clint, really appreciated. Excuse my ignorance as never used the inkbird, does a digital thermometer go into the brew and the other plugged into the heatpad? What heatpad do you use if don't mind asking and is it very low temps you are brewing in. Cheers

    Using pump on Klarstein XXL to dispense into fermenter

    Hi, looking for some advice please. I've recently moved from a 25l Klarstein with no built in pump for recirculation etc to a 50l model with a pump built in. Previously I would just manually recirculate and have the kettle elevated on a table to brew and just dispense into the fermentation...

    Quick or stuck fermentation?

    I had a very fast ferment with an S33 yeast a few weeks ago, bubbling the airlock like crazy for less than 24 hrs then stopped as did my gravity reading but took the advice to be patient and raise temp slightly and it actually dropped to a suitable fg in the third week.

    Stuck Fermentation?

    Thanks for that, really appreciated. I'm relatively new to home brewing and am learning all the time 😂 That's really good to know re attenuation. I shall let it sit on and up the temp slightly and see where it's at in a few days. Thanks again.

    Stuck Fermentation?

    Thanks Darrell, really good to know, have used Safale S04 a few times and it fermented well and finished lower but the S33 went off like a rocket 🚀 and was concerned re the reading but helpful to know regarding yeast and effect on attenuation so will check this for future brews. Cheers.

    Stuck Fermentation?

    Hi, I brewed a Neipa with a OG of 1050. For the first time I used Safale S33 yeast. It started fermenting quickly and airlock activity was crazy for 24 hours then stopped completely. Reading seems stuck at 1020 after 10 days. Plan was to transfer to secondary to dry hop then bottle but feel...
