It didn't help me at all! I fermented at 62 and checked after 14 days in and was at 1.020 .

I potentially may have mashed in slightly higher so some of my attenuation issues may result from that.

Nope , it is his evil twin . How else can one explain LHBS being out of 05 and 2 row.

Very nice idea I think . have you tried any specialty honey like Tupela or orange blossom ? The flavor left in by the honey will go away after a couple months so drink up.

I know when using rice in recipes I always have a pure white foam . If stirring up the wort for oxygen it gets real bad and does not go down for a very long time and even lasts into the finished product . Seems to hang around in the fermenter . I think it is just from the rice and maybe the corn also.

No on specialty, but I do use fresh local honey and not processed clover like in the store.

I rarely have had a batch last a month.. much less months

Boy that bry-97 is sure a different beast than the 05 or notty that I'm used to..it took about 24hrs to show any signs of life then hit pretty hard for another day and a half or so then the krausen fell to about 1/2 inch or so of pretty thick looking topper and its already dropping out like a rock...I figure at this rate, it'll be pretty clear in 2 weeks tops.

Pulled a hydro sample today and krausen cap started falling apart and streaming toward the bottom like white rain. SG still at 1.004 so we are done! Racking to keg tonight.

I can't seem to get this to get below 1.014.. That said I added the 2 lbs of honey, and its also real cloudy.. so thinking I'm done ??

Mine finished at 1.014 but crystal clear. I used a big Belgian yeast and may have mashed too high. Still tasty!
