Shallow Fermenter Experiment
Hi guys! Well after 15 days in the primary our first shallow fermenter beer is finished. We brewed a Wit with an OG of 1.053 and an FG of 1.011. We pitched a 1L starter of WLP400 (Wit Yeast) and aerated for 1 min with pure oxygen. The dimensions of our plastic fermenter was 6-3/8H x 16-1/4W x 23-1/2L. The primary just kept on going and going and going... We transfered it to a keg last night and it tasted pretty good. During this long primary process I read in Zymurgy that one of the reasons breweries switched to conical fermenters was because the depth of the vessel caused the beer to circulate. This created more contact with the yeast and a quicker fermentation period. It looks like our experiment proved that out. I guess the only way figure out what changes in phenolics and esters the shallow fermenter created would be to do a 10 gallon batch and ferment 5 gallons in a bucket and 5 gallons in the plastic tray. I'll let you know if we end up doing that.
