Cream Ale – All Grain GONE


General Info

This is the second attempt at this recipe.   I had previously brewed it on 7/03/2015, but using the SS Brewtech 14 Gal Chronical for the first time.  That batch became infected and I eventually dumped it.  

Replaced hoses along with new cam & grove quick connects.  Swapped out ball valves on the fermenter for TC butterfly valves as well.  Suspect the ball valve for trapping something nasty.  Also built low pressure TC fitting for top of fermenter so I can use low pressure CO2 (1-1.5 psi) when dumping trub/yeast and taking samples so that air doesn't fill the vacuum.  This also lets me use CO2 to transfer to kegs when done.  

As a result of these changes and possibly just being overly paranoid about sanitation (never a bad thing), this batch fermented just fine without any drama.  Beer is clean.
