The KC Pale Ale is in the bucket (aka primary fermentation). I want to strain from the cooking pot to the primary fermentation as well as doing some aeration. I hydrated the yeast, but I think the water I used was to hot – we’ll see. Still have not used the hydrometer – I need to figure out how to take a small sample and use the hydrometer. Maybe between primary and secondary fermentation?
It took about 15 minutes to cool the wort down to 70F. I used the kitchen sink and lots of ice.
We will see if the airlock is bubbling tomorrow morning.
