  • Posted in thread: Imperial Stout advice on 05-04-2015 at 01:14 AM
    I want to focus on bittersweet chocolate, burnt caramel, dried fruits with some noticeable
    roast character/coffee. I want it smooth, decadent with big mothfeel and little hop aroma as
    opposed to dry, ...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentis Yeast Expired - Use Anyway? on 05-04-2015 at 12:47 AM
    I know you don't know how it was stored at the store, but when stored in the fridge, dried
    yeast looses about 4% viability per year, and will be good for many years past the expiration
    date.I'm guessi...

  • Posted in thread: Could I get a sanity check on my starter? on 05-04-2015 at 12:45 AM
    As a suggestion. Make your starter a quart bigger than needed. Once starter is done, swirl it
    up and let it settle for about 15 minutes, then take a quart off the starter into a separate
    container, pl...

    Either split the beer and pitch a different brett into each and blend at bottling. Could make
    an interesting session trying to figure out the mix proportions.OR, pitch the Brux a few months
    before the...

    80%, all-extract. You might not get there with either of them.They are both good yeasts, and 1
    packet should work fine. If you want a clean ferment, S-05 is probably better to control. Notty
    will give...

  • Posted in thread: Lacto Brevis vs. Delbruekii on 05-04-2015 at 12:10 AM
    my general take away has been a 1 vial/pouch into 1L starter at a minimum is a good idea for a
    5 gallon batch to ensure quick souring.Why use a starter? I see no reason to use a starter with
    Lacto; it...

    Put the fermenter in a big plastic tub, and fill the tub with water. You can cool the water as
    Yooper suggests, but if you don't, the large water mass in the tub will prevent the
    fermentation from run...

  • Posted in thread: How clear does beer have to be? on 05-03-2015 at 07:13 PM
    I'm suspecting the bakers yeast is not settling very quickly.Too much yeast in the bottle will
    cause long-term storage problems (a little is good, a lot is bad). If you don't mind drinking
    cloudy beer...
