I generally have a low strength session beer as one of my taps and I thought I’d try an easy recipe and try to make the process as quick as possible. I’ve been following a thread on Home Brew Talk about No Chill brewing.
It always bothers me how long my chiller takes and how much water I waste when I am chilling my beers. The only thing that was holding me back was not having Winpak containers. Since Corny kegs are stainless steel I am going to try my no chill in one of those. I am not going for anything long term, like storing wort for weeks at a time. I just need a place for the wort to cool naturally over a day or 2 and not get infected before I pitch the yeast.
I brewing this beer now and plan on pitching the yeast on Sunday. Next on my list of things to buy is some fermcap and a Bleeder Valve so I can ferment directly in the Corny and carb my beer as it ferments. This will give me some beer from grain to glass in 7 days for some of my session beers.
