Vendors / FastFerments and FastRacks now in-stock!
« Last post by eastcoasthoppers.ca on February 15, 2018, 06:22:18 PM »
Hey all,

Just unpacked a big load of goodies from FastBrewing!

FastFerments - I've got all three sizes: 14, 7.9 and 3 gallon + a bunch of accessories for them (extra collection balls, sample port kits, stands, hop spiders, carry straps etc.)

FastRacks both the 24s for regular 355mL beer bottles and the 12s for wine and bomber bottles!

Don't forget that we now offer flat rate shipping throughout Canada as well as our loyalty points program for some really great deals!

Cheers!
Matt

I avoided brewing lagers for years but gave it a shot after reading http://brulosophy.com/2016/02/08/fermentation-temperature-pt-4-lager-yeast-saflager-3470-exbeeriment-results/. I was pretty happy with the results using W34/70 at 16-18C in the basement coldroom.

I read that too; that's the exact reason I gave lagers a try! So far so good.

Welcome!

I am just getting into lagers myself. I have two Marzens on the go and was eyeing up a Maibock.

What are you using for temperature control? Myself, I use a really cold basement. lol.
My last lager was in my basenment at about 14c than turned on a space heater and gradually increased the temp at the end for a few days. Best lager i have brewed yet

Welcome!

I've considered 'no chill' recently because I rarely have time on the weekends, so I was planning a brew in stages over a day or two. Its nice to hear 'no-chill' methods working for other people.
Brulosophy did a post on this a while back. http://brulosophy.com/2015/11/09/cooling-the-wort-pt-1-no-chill-vs-quick-chill-exbeeriment-results/

I used to split my brew days when I was short on time. I'd mash and collect my wort, bring it up to 180F, take it off the heat, put the lid on and finish the boil the next day.

I haven't had an issue with "no chill". I always start with a sanitized bucket and keep it sealed until I transfer the wort into a primary carboy the following day. The trub settles out during the no chill, so i can easily transfer beer to primary carboy for better clarity.

I like no chill i play with it from time to time. And welcome
