Instagram follower kinda weird.

Re: Fermentation Gravity Readings

If it’s still working why you messing with it? Let them yeasties work it off then mess with it. I mean you know it ain’t done if it’s still working. And you ain’t Gona run it when it’s still working. That would be a waste. So let it finish out. And leave them yeasties alone.

Re: Glass airsoft BB packing.

Now if you did multiple smaller packed sections. Say 6” of the 6mm bbs with a no packed section then another packed section so on so forth. In essence you would be creating a bubble plate column once each packed section was flooded. Kinda like a perforated plate column. LoL But it could be done with...

Re: Heating a 55 gallon fermenter

Use a yeast that is more tolerant of colder temps. Or double pitch with both a warm and cool yeast. So when the temps do drop the cooler one takes over.

Re: Glass airsoft BB packing.

I would say the 6mm bbs would compact quiet a bit. So the actual vapor path would be to restrictive. With liquid reflux trying to come back down filling most of the small gaps. It would more then likely be prone to flooding the column. Like a scrubber packed column that’s packed to tight. More surfa...

Re: Monitoring Temperature - Liquid or vapor?

Take the thermometer throw it on the ground and stomp on it. Now turn the heat up till you get a twisted stream coming out. And let it go. Collect in small jars. Let it air out 24 to 48 hours and then make cuts by smell and taste. If it smells good and taste good. That what you want. It’s a pot stil...
