    Standing water is usually pretty gross. Once fermentation begins, the positive pressure in the
    fermentation vessel is going to keep creepy crawlies out of there. I'd say it is probably not
    an ideal lo...

    Could just be s04. You use it much? I have a handful of times.. It has an offensive taste to it
    sometimes. I thought it was the munich/aromatic in the recipe, but a batch I made with s05 had

    gravity and using that information. 1056 and 001 can both be fast, 68 would be right in their
    comfort zone. Sou...

    This sounds terrifying. In my opinion, and its just that, not expressing what others should or
    should not do, i feel beer should compliment food flavors and not recreate them.

    White labs says that's a slow yeast and recommends a big starter and or a long lagering time.
    It may just need more time. Kind of hard to tell from the photo, is that still a big krausen
    ring in the c...
