    After about 48 hours I still do not see any signs of fermentation taking place. Is this because
    of the chocolate? Could there be other reasons? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
    What was ...

    Anyone else have this beer turn out acrid?I just kegged this on Sunday and the flavor just
    isn't right. Like strong, burnt coffee is what I'm picking up.I used 2 ounces of Sumatra
    grounds at flameout,...

    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
    sugars). Pitch...

    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
    suburban Chicag...

    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 =
    102 (5.0/5.5...

    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
    of about 1040 s...

    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...
