I took my first gravity reading today (two weeks after pitching). I've actually been using a
refractometer this year after getting one for Christmas.The refractometer said my original brix
was 15.0 an...

White labs says the ideal fermentation temperature is 65-70 so I'd let it sit around there if
you can. Depending what you're using to take the temperature will change stuff. If you're
taking the ambie...

1007 loves that 57, so you're great there. And me, after the first 5 days or so, I let it rise

I brewed last Friday and pitched the 1007 around 1:00pm. The yeast must have still been plenty

9:00pm. I k...

Posted in thread: Getting "More" From A Siphonless Big Mouth Bubbler on 09-19-2015 at 03:09 PM
Hi,I've been thinking about switching from glass to plastic carboys, and decided to try out one
of the Siphonless Big Mouth Bubblers. I ordered a 5-gallon version to try out, because I like
the large ...

Mrmalty puts the viability at 10%, yeastcalc at 25%. Even if you use the low end of that at
10-15% you've about 75-100 billion cells, or similar to a new pack. I'd decant and pitch what
you have into ...

Hi,This is kind of a continuation of my Wyeast 1007 post.I made my starter yesterday, based on

the flask ...
