Posted in thread: Oxygenation? Or stir start? Or both? on 10-25-2014 at 02:45 AM
but I've read that Gordon Strong, a Ninkasi winner, pitches a single vial of yeast in all his
beers. To get decent beer from that small of a pitch he must be considered underpitching but I
would bet ...

I use Saran Wrap as a sub for para film with good results. Remember to stretch it as you go
around the plates circumference to lock it in place. A little goes a long way. Sent from my

I did a 1.050 Munich at 48 degrees and a 1.052 Vienna at 52 degrees. Same lag for both. I redid
the Munich this Saturday with Wyeast 2308 and I had signs of fermentation within 15 hours. I

Yes they're safe. Just use electrical tape around the cap and tube to prevent them from drying
out. The liners are just to make a seal. Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

Yes, you are correct to use dry sterilization for the plates. But I'm not sure how it took you
five attempts to know when to pour the media. As soon as the decanter is warm enough to touch
you should ...

It took me about 5 different attempts to realize when I had to pour in order to
prevent/minimize the condensation.Condensation is normal. Just turn your plates upside down

I don't see why not. I add the sterile wort to the inoculated slant, cap, and shake. Then I add
the mixture back to my sterilized 50ml flask. I only do this for more headspace, but your
