    Good to know, it's been a while but I picked my idea up from a seminar a while back from a reputable hefe brewer. Your's seems to be backed by actual science. I'll give low-er O2 a shot on my next...

    I think you got that backwards. If the goal is maximum banana, then fast, heavy fermentation to create those esters. Adding more than normal O2 will get the yeast to kick out more esters. As will...

    To be clear, these floors were done right, 22 years ago. Nothing lasts forever, especially stuff that tanks the beating our floors do. But yeah, I know a lot of breweries that have no coating on...

    All good points, especially about tanks sweating. I'm considering tenting off the floor with plastic to keep the tanks separate from the floor and to catch the moisture.

  9. How warm, and for how long? Warming cooler with full bright tanks in it.

    Trying to figure out how long we can warm up a room with 6-30 bbl unjacketed bright tanks, all around 1/2-3/4 full, so that we can redcoat our floors. 50F seems to be the lowest the product can...
