I have Schwarzbier brewing (fast lager method) and it seems a shame to waste the yeast cake. Usually I brew IPAs and don't re pitch because between the kettle trub that makes it into the fermenter…Continue

"Still bubbling away at about 1 bubble a second so maybe the wort is a little more fermentable than calculated. Sample came out fizzy as had dried out a bit since the last sample and lost a little gravity so clearly still fermenting. Smelled like a…"

"Funny, I prefer using the tap over a turkey baster for the same reason. I give the tap a spray with starsan before and after pulling a sample. An extra week in primary wouldn't hurt, but personally, I'd taste it for diacetyl and other off…"

Cain Harland replied to Ian Niehorster's discussion Lager fermenting- four weeks
"I should elaborate on that. I'm pretty sure I've done a 4 week primary with that yeast for similar reasons (not being around to move it) and the beer was good. I also "lagered" one for 6 weeks in the primary on the garage floor…"

Chig replied to Cain Harland's discussion 3944 restarted
"Fermentation might have finished, and the bubbling could be gases expanding or just coming out of suspension. The best way to be sure is to check whether the gravity is stable for a few days and if so, cold crash and keg."

So I brewed a wit with 3944. Original starter blow out and made a huge mess, so I made a 1l vitality starter on brew day pitched at 17c. Within 24 hrs it was bubbling nicely within 48 it the rum bottle on the end of my blow off pipe looked like it was full of caramel milkshake and the thing smelled gross and sulfurous, which is apparently normal. It carried on for a few days as I bumped the temp up to finish at 22c. I swapped the pipe for an airlock once it slowed. Now I have started to move…See More
