That's what lagering and decanting are all about, man. After about two weeks at room temp to carbonate, put them in a ~36F fridge and leave them for at least another two weeks (if not months). All that crap will compact on the bottom and you can decant your beautiful beer. Just don't let some shmoe ...

Or just mash at a higher temperature. 4 degrees can make a huge difference.

Beer Tools Pro will soon own the known homebrew universe.

Lathe, have you thought of going on the Brewing Network? They cannot seem to get Jeff Donovan on there... just a thought.

Multiple "My Ingredients"

How about having more than one "My Ingredients"? This may sound odd, but hear me out -- my LBHS does not have nearly the selection the BTP database has. I find myself comparing their website to the BTP ingredients to find the same or closest match when I'm building a recipe. Those, of course, can't ...

Schedule Steps in the Database...?

Getting used to the new look and feel. I like it. I found myself reaching to the left database pane when it was time to put a mash schedule together. Am I crazy? What do you guys think of that idea? Just like dragging in a grain how about dragging in a step or even a whole schedule? Cheers, Charlie

Proxy Support

When I tried to connect to "My Beertools..." nothing happened - then I realized here at work we connect to the internet through a proxy server.

Can I make BTP "aware" of that path?

Cheers,
Charlie

This will help clarify your beer quickly. There will be plenty of yeast left to carbonate if you bottle condition (again, said without knowing the general health of the original yeast pitch).

That is great! So you basically have two temp controlled systems, right? One, the Coleman, maintaining your water temp and second, the Ranco, maintaining your ferm temps.

Sweet!

Re: doing ok

First of all, congratulations! How fun is THAT?! Whatever happens with this beer, know that the hardest one is now behind you. OK, it's bubbling away and forming a "head" on the top (I don't know what you call it). It's called a krausen; I hope you can see it because you are fermenting in glass and ...

a pump controlled by a Ranco temp controller wich recirculates cold or hot water into a 50ft copper tubing coil inside the fermenter Sweet! Does it choose "hot or cold" or do you have to manually do that? What did you use? Washing machine valves? I've been thinking of that very thing for a while no...

I also recently have carbonation problems, and complete fermentation in 5 days (3 weeks in secondary and no gravity drop). Maybe this is because of high temp ferm (it is about 80F+ in my appartment...) Why are you doing a secondary? Unless you have a good reason, you may just be adding to your bact...
