Tpw too hot

Postby Marbaker1 » Sun Jan 10, 2021 8:49 am

Hi first of all thanks for adding me again I forgot my password on old membership

I have a problem last week I put a Tpw on I put them in the garage in a cupboard with a heater never had any issues until this one. we had very cold weather so with them being in the cupboard I thought everything was OK but I think the heater is on its way out so when I took a reading with the hydrometer after 7 days it hadn't moved. So I brought them in they where rather cold so I put them by a radiator to warm up I checked them the next day and they where still active so I left the another two day didn't realise they were too close to the radiator and they got a bit too warm around 40c so I moved them to cool down now they have stopped fermenting and still have not moved on the hydrometer the question is have a ruined them or is there anything I can do to reactivate the wash thanks marbaker

Hydrate a fresh lot yeast to the wash temp and pitch, you should be fine then

So mix warm water to yeast then add to wash. How much yeast would you recommend on a 25ltr wash

How'd you go?

I recently accidentally pitched at 50c - was quiet for 24 hours and is now going gangbusters!
