Subject: Question for Evening Brewers, Morning Rackers
Date: 1992-04-14 13:38:54 GMT

For all you who brew in the evening, then let things settle out
overnight before racking in the morning: when do you pitch - in
the evening after things are cooled or in the morning after racking?
Since the idea is to get the trub away from the fermenting yeast,
morning would be better(?); but is evening pitched yeast at a stage
after 8-10 hours that the fermentation is harmed by the presence of
trub? The wort temperature would be, say, 60 degrees and have
approximately 24 hour lag time.
