  • Posted in thread: Effect of Cold Crashing on Bottling?? on 12-10-2014 at 05:07 PM
    I have a semi-cool basement that is about 60 these days, can I put my carboy in a tub of cool
    water and maybe add a bit of ice to get it down to the mid 40s and crash it that way? I freeze
    liter bottl...

  • Posted in thread: WLP830 & WLP840 D-Rest? Lagering? on 12-10-2014 at 04:59 PM
    I did a 2l starter (stirplate) for each yeast and split it into two 5 gallon batches. I plan to
    check the gravities in a week.I'm afraid that's a pretty significant underpitch for such a high
    gravity ...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentation issues on 12-10-2014 at 04:51 PM
    The production date of the WLP002 vial, whether or not you made a starter (and how big) plus
    the pitch/ferment temp all play a role.If you have any off-flavors, they'll be from something
    other than si...

  • Posted in thread: Starter with only 1 dry pack on 12-10-2014 at 04:48 PM
    Information from Fermentis:You can make a starter with dry yeast. The yeast must be rehydrated
    first. Don't use RO or distilled water for the rehydration. The lack of minerals in the water
    creates osm...

    Leave it alone for a week and then check the gravity. Four days later check it again. If it's
    the same, it's done.

  • Posted in thread: Properly adding Vienna to extract recipe on 12-10-2014 at 04:01 PM
    You're not going to get a whole lot from Vienna just from steeping a small amount. You'd have
    to do a mini-mash.Another option is to incorporate into your recipe some Munich extract (50/50
    Munich and ...

  • Posted in thread: Some Lager Questions on 12-04-2014 at 04:00 PM
    It's a bit late in the game to do a D-rest (which is best done when it gets to 75% of the way
    to FG so you still have yeast activity). Your ferment temps (assuming measured on the vessel)
    were a bit w...

  • Posted in thread: Lager fermenting question on 08-26-2014 at 04:36 PM
    So four days later and the S.G. Is at1.026. The temp right now is 62 degrees. I would have
    assumed it would have gone more than .001 a day... Any advice?Just to be sure, is the 1.026 a
    reading from a ...

  • Posted in thread: Northern Brewer BIAB Kits on 08-26-2014 at 04:31 PM
    They have 5 gallon all-grain kits. They aren't specifically for BIAB but you could use them
    that way (right?).Sure. You may want to see if they'll do a double crush on the grains to help
    with BIAB eff...
