    I do not, no. My methods are incredibly basic. Honestly my advice would be to look at a simpler
    solution. Rousing the yeast (gently) once a day in the first 2-3 days or so is a good idea even
    by white...

    Honestly, I've been using WLP002 for over a year now as my house yeast because I've been on a
    bitter and mild kick. I've only had drastic over-carbonation once and other than that have not
    had a probl...

    The answers to all your british yeast questions are contained in this thread: alert: wy1968
    is a tough one to bottle condition with. I don't remember if its actually from the thread or my
    own person...

    Still at it. Bad news on the dissolved oxygen meter. I've been using it at work nearly everyday
    but it takes about a gallon or so to get an accurate reading. I'm thinking the yeast nutrient
    thing may ...

    I had an IPA in the fermenter I thought I would try yeast energizer on. fermentation stopped at
    1.016 Roused with spoon 1.014~2.5tsp yeast energizer in boiled water yielded 1.010Might be on

    Still working on this. The scottish ale exhibited symptoms at 2 months in the bottle. This is a
    significant increase in shelf life, but still unacceptable. I never measured the bottled co2
    volumes but...

    There is some speculation these prefer either no cover or low top pressure (loose cover on
    bucket) to preform best but that may be more of an o2 issue than anything. I am experimenting
    on the 36 hour ...

    just to share/contribute to the discussion a little..Day 5: Airlock activity was basically
    stopped. Sample read 1.013 for ~ 71% AA. Hydromemeter sample was clear as a bell. Swirled yeast
    per reccs her...

    Test number 2 with the scottish ale went well. It's done fermenting as of today. I took daily
    gravities on this one. Here's how the fermentation went.Day 1: Pitch, swirl fermenter to break
    up yeast, t...

    Opened a bottle today. No cidery or tart off flavors! I tested the gravity of the bottle 1.010.
    There seems to be a slight increase in carbonation (as the 1.002 point drop in gravity would
    suggest). T...
