worry wort

brew splitting

Recommended Posts

Currently got a blond mix down at 21 litres. Its been down 5 days now, and I like beer with a bit of taste to it and so far this taste ok but missing something, so was considering dry hopping to tweak it a bit. I want to rack off about 10 ltrs into a 2nd fv and dry hop that, and leave the rest in the original fv as is. the original fv is 30ltr capacity, the 2nd is 25ltr capacity. Are these too large for small amounts of wort to ferment, I cant think why but asking just in case. If the fv are not an issue, would it be possible to do as described now, should I wait a few more days, or would it be detrimental to the brewing process totally?

this learning curve is longer than i expected.....

Cheers

I think it's better off done at the beginning, if you do it now there won't really be any fermentation activity left to fill the headspace with CO2.

If it has been down for 5 days then fermentation has probably finished (or close to it).

You can do as you described. Just make sure you don't splash to avoid oxidation.
