    True, I plan to try 3068 next brew date and simply pitch direct and don't worry with a starter.
    I also think I'll quit with the saved slurry on these Hefe's if the direct pitch works out ok.
    It costs ...

    I am just learning nuisances of step mashing, but it sounds like 30-30-20 may be our best
    schedule. If iodine testing is accurate (debatable), I have seen light malt grain bills

    The biggest secret to great hefeweizen is to treat the yeast like ****. Use WLP300 or WLP380,
    and just pitch the vial without making a starter. Keep fermentation temperature in the 60s F
    for more clov...

    I hear brews that are extract based frequently finish around 1.020. Maybe you could try one of
    the recipes the database? It might give you some more direction.

    I second that. No need to worry about short methods of carbing if you have that much time.And
    30 psi is usually for 24-36 hours, depending on initial temp into the kegerator.

    I brewed this yesterday, my first attempt at a pumpkin ale. I never have more than one or two
    pints a season, but my friends enjoy the style so I'm trying my hand at it.Out of curiosity, I
    weighed my ...

    Best guess would be to shoot for 75F for the first few days then let it free rise. The websites
    say 70-90. Are you building the yeast up in volume or just pitching the dregs from one bottle
    of each?

    Them tap handles look rather scarily like some "specialist" things we used to sell when I
    worked for an adult toy company...;)I've heard that before. Couldn't figure out if it was my

    Between friends and family 10 gal was then only way to go. I regularly split batches with
    friends. Plus I don't like to be the guy whining about how fast my beer went when my BIL comes
    to the house.
