All Grain/Advanced / Re: New to Conical Fermenters - Cold break dump?
« Last post by Kevin58 on Yesterday at 08:49:04 PM »
Don't spend too much time worrying about the cold break. It has little if any effect on beer clarity ...unless you suck it all up when packaging. I use a conical fermenter and the only time I use the dump is if I am harvesting the yeast. Otherwise I pitch my yeast, secure the lid and forget it until kegging day.

For printing, some print drivers have issues.  Try going to Options->Reports and check the Print to Browser box which will send printouts to the browser where you have more control over scaling, margins and printing.

The Print to Browser option is checked and results in the error.

Can't close a recipe tab (no close gadget)
The Scale up seems to work, Scale down gave a ridiculous grain amount.

All Grain/Advanced / New to Conical Fermenters - Cold break dump?
« Last post by RiverBrewer on Yesterday at 10:38:32 AM »
Just a few questions 1)With a conical fermenter, Do you dump the cold break? 2) When? Before or after yeast added? After staring at glass fermenters for years, I know it breaks down, yeast food? 3) Benefits of removal or not?

My plan was to oxygenate, add yeast and drop the cold break after 12 hours.

All Grain/Advanced / Lagering process
« Last post by michaelderrick on Yesterday at 12:57:03 AM »
Couple of questions re lagering
I currently have a 21lt lager in FV at 12degC. OG was 1.046 and am aiming for 1.010.
I pitched at 13.5degC with two 11g pkts W-34/70 dry on top then stirred in.
After 5 days it is only at 1.038. Is this lack of progress a concern or should I just relax and wait it out?

Second question is re eventual bottling (no access to kegging yet). I will bulk prime. Should I add any yeast starter to the ~160g dextrose mix prior to bottling?

First, are you sure you're using 3.1.07? I only ask because I'm running 3.1.07 on OSX 10.15.6, same as you and don't have a problem. I thought the "localhost" issue was resolved with this update as indicated by the fact that if I send output to the default browser, it says file:// not localhost. Granted my default browser is Firefox and not Safari, but I don't think that's a problem.

edit: just tried sending to Safari and it worked just fine.

Yes, confident.

Still not able to print in 3.1.07 on Mac running MacOS 10.15.6.  See attached error message from browser (Safari).  What might I be doing wrong?
