Ah, conical fermenters. Ever since we bit the bullet and bought 2 stainless steel conical fermenters from Blichmann about a month ago, we’ve spent probably 30 minutes of every day staring at their shiny surfaces. I’ve actually given up looking for a wife and have settled for Gertrude, Stainless Steel Conical #2.
When it came time to drain the yeast off the bottom of the fermenter for the first time, we thought we’d capture it on video. It’s a good thing we did, because Jeff screwed up royally. There are 2 valves on the fermenter ? one to drain the yeast and one to sample beer. Jeff opened the wrong valve and… well… just watch the video.
Sorry Joel. Our bad.
