Yoop do you always do a starter with liquid or is there a certain gravity that you use as a cutoff point?

Yooper: Are there any strains of yeast you have or would consider substituting for the wyeast 1335?

I think liquid yeasts always require a starter as there are not enough calls in the vial or packet

Ok when I set this back I had an infection, here is the story.

Long story short, I checked the beer for FG about a week early. So I went to my LHBS and got the grains to reset, while the grains where in the mast tune I was going to keg the first beer. After opening it up I found out that it was infected. Well in a hard spot what I did was keg the beer, the infection was not that bad, then took the yeast out of the bottom of the bucket. I put the yeast onto a small Ball Jar, about half way full, topping the rest off with Starsan and shook the jar. Well I didn’t have time to run back to LHBS and get more yeast, so I tossed in the Starsan/yeast into the cool wart. Had no problems with the second beer, now with that said I would not make a normal practice of this? LOL

I'm gonna be honest -- I have no idea what you just said. You need to explain that again.

Something about grains "resetting" (whatever that means) and dumping starsan'd yeast on an infected beer or something....

I reused infected yeast by sterilizing it with Starsan.

Mhmmm. Probably not the greatest idea at all. But if it worked, then best of luck.

Well, I just brewed this today and hit an OG of 1.052. It looks good and we'll see how it tastes in about 5 weeks (2 weeks for bottle conditioning).

Can anyone compare this oatmeal stout to samuel smith's? I already asked but no answer. I'm really teetering between which one I'll buy grain for. May be brewing next weekend. I'm pretty much done buying my all grain equipment.

Can't compare, but can tell you that you will not regret brewing this recipe
