    Don't worry about the krausen ring at all. The only two reasons to worry about yeast/trub buildup are if it's going to use up too much of the airspace at the top of the fermenter, forcing the krausen...

    I've been working a CCB Maduoe clone. Getting pretty close 4 batches in. From what I've read, Maduro is the base brew for a lot of their other seasonal and one-off brews.

    Bran, four-foot liquid lines are asking for trouble, or at least a lot of foam. When any carbonated liquid experiences a sudden pressure drop, it foams. When the pressure drop is gradual, it...
