that doesn't seem natural :lol:


False alarm, actually. It is now down about 8-9 points (A more reasonable 6 hours later) but I think the kreusen was messing with the Tilt earlier. Initial fermentation was quick, though.

I was worried you had just started the beer that would end all beers.  no other yeast would ever get to take hold again.

The dry Lutra seems just like the liquid so far. In 26 hours since pitching, gravity has dropped 60 points. I expect it will be finished fermenting by tomorrow morning.

The BP appears to be done fermenting. FG is 1.016 (OG was 1.092). I'll keg it sometime this weekend.

Did an IPA today. 14 lbs pilsner, half pound each of Crystal 60 and melanoidin. 1.071, about 50 IBU of Simcoe and half a pound of Simcoe and c hops chucked in at the end. S-05.

Should be my last brew session in the garage. Just finished the demo in the laundry room/ brew kitchen and will start tiling tomorrow.

Very unlikely to be an issue in the winter with how dry it is here and just open the window in the summer. A small window fan if needed, or if really an issue, could make a condenser (I think shaggaroo also has an Anvil Foundry and posted pics of his condenser).

Yeah, I will look into it if needed, but usually we are looking for ways to get extra humidity in the air. We cool with a swamp cooler and when we get around to replacing our furnace (when it breaks) we will get a whole house humidifier. We run humidifiers in bedrooms. We had a whole house humidifier at our previous house and it was nice.

In the winter here it creates a lot of humidity in my garage which is a pretty large volume of air.

Hopefully you read my other post how I intended it.

1) genuine excitement
2) curiosity on venting

Just rereading it I realized it might not have come across as I intended.

Nah, I got it. I will just see how it goes. I had the garage open today because it was nice, but I've brewed in there with it closed and no condensation or anything.

I'll be reusing the Verdant yeast that's currently in the fermenter. Looking at a combo of azacca, bru-1, and citra in a Tropical IPA. How's that sound?

Had some extra thinset after putting the underlayment in so laid a few tiles this morning. More tomorrow. First priority is finishing the corner where the washer and dryer will be stacked so we can do laundry again. But, accounting for being out of town for Thanksgiving, should be all done in maybe 3 weeks. The niche in the second picture will be the brewing area.
