Should I do this ?

Recommended Posts

Down on cubes currently and want to do a no chill Pilsner tomorrow or Wednesday. 
 

was going to transfer straight to FV from the kettle at around 80, throw in the fridge over night, aerate and pitch the next day. 
 

any problemos?

Isn’t that every brew? 😝

Was concerned more so about head space in FV Vs a full cube and oxidation?

Oxidisation is a post ferment issue.

Also, bear in mind if you seal the FV it will be crushed from the negative pressure inside with the cooling wort.

Sorry, in my head I meant hot side aeration rather than oxidation. Must have sustained some brain damage from saturday evening 😝

 

might just go buy another cube

Yeah I can't think of a good way to do it.

Perhaps set up another fermenter with something the bugs will like even BETTER right next to it, put up a sign to let them know it's free food and then hope they go for that instead of your good one?

Surely that is an issue with the hose into cube anyway?

I've got a round 25 ltr water container that is the same material as a cube, same little white tap etc. I use this as a FV. The lid seals up the same as a cube.

I've tipped hot wort into this and left it in my fridge overnight, then aerated and pitched yeast the following day, no issues whatsoever. These were anywhere between 11 ltr and 21 ltr batches, so plenty of space between the wort and lid. Not ideal according to some, but it's never caused me any dramas.

Do you like the taste of DMS ? 

Delicate styles are not suited to no chilling in my experience
