      The heating problem seems to be worse when I do a corn/barley mash.  The rising CO2 pushes the crushed grain up forming a sorta insulating cap on the mash.  I usually punch it down several timed a day.  Seems to solve the problem.

      I never paid any mind to the temp rise in the fermentor till I joined this group . I have since found it can be quite a noticable rise. I guess thats why we never made drum size batches till fall. LATER

      The main problem with large ferments is the mash temperature. Most
      distilleries will have cooling tubes in the fermentation vat to keep
      it constantly at the optimal fermentation temperature. Generally they
      will set it to ferment at the fastest rate they can without killing
      the yeast. However, this results in more fusel oils produced.
      Fermenting at lower temps produce less fusels, but they also take
      longer. Much longer than 60 hours.
