I took a gravity sample of this beer on Saturday, so 6 days after I pitched. Airlock activity
had stopped as far as I could tell.I taped the STC-1000 probe to the bucket and set the STC to
18.6C for t...

When I re hydrated my yeast I re hydrated it in diluted star san water. It has been 24 hours
and nothing yet in primary fermenter. I understand that it could take a few days to start, but
I am just wa...
Posted in thread: First brew in 2 years, did I pitch enough yeast on 04-13-2015 at 01:23 AM
If you've got that much airlock activity, your yeast are most likely done with their aerobic
growth (Consuming free oxygen in the wort), and now they're onto anaerobic growth (consuming

I've used their 1056 equivalent as well as their 1098 equivalent. My beers that I've used the
West Coast ale on have come out very well - in clarity, attenuation, and flavor. I live in

Thanks. A buddy came over and set me at ease as well. I've just never seen so much brown stuff
floating around in the starter. Oh well, hopefully that + 1 pack of liquid yeast is enough to
battle my 1...

I think you're looking at it wrong... 1.102 to 1.093 isn't 22 points - it's only 9. And if you
don't trust Beersmith, the simple formula C1V1 = C2V2 backs that up:102 X 5.0 = C2 X 5.5C2 =

Took my starter out of the fermentation chamber and it looks like this. Lots of brown bits
floating around in there.It was an OYL-006 (equivalent to WLP007/1098) yeast packet into 1.5L

Thinking about brewing this tomorrow. As I put the recipe from the front page into Beersmith,
I'm getting a total of about 20 and change of total grain bill, and an estimated OG of 1.102 at
82% mash e...

That's why I don't start drinking until at least the mash has begun.Can verify, but it's not

Cool, thanks guys! I leave it plugged in because the electricity drain is so insignificant when
not cooling. Rev.It actually has to cool more when there's no beer in it.Full kegs have a lot
