    Thanks! I thought about the malto, but I'm worried that will add a little haze to the beer. I
    suppose I should just exercise patience. Just wasn't expecting a 75% attenuation... grrrr. Beer
    can be fru...

    I brewed an APA about 10 days ago using Northwest Ale yeast (pitched at 68, holding steady at
    66 for 9 days) and fermentation has been as active as ever.My target FG was 1.015 - from 1.058
    - and after...

    *bump* I'm working out a recipe today and will be brewing later... I've been meaning to do this
    for a while. I'll let anyone interested know how it turns out!

  • Posted in thread: Boil size vs. hop efficiency on 08-10-2012 at 01:17 PM
    I'll just agree to disagree and assume that all of the guys - who are a lot smarter and more
    experienced than me - who came up with hop utilization formulas were correct. In my early
    experience with e...

    The gravity of your boil GREATLY effects your hop utilization. So we'll assume you're adding,
    let's say, 6lbs of DME and doing a 1.5 gallon boil - the gravity of your wort is VERY high. By
    doing a sli...

    I've heard stories of people pitching as high as 43C (110F) and not killing the yeast. You
    shocked the hell out of it, but it probably isn't dead. What Silver said... just wait. Yeast
    has a way of sur...

  • Posted in thread: Too warm for Wyeast Czech Pils? on 08-09-2012 at 11:08 AM
    I've read quite a few examples of diacetyl levels being exceedingly high if you start warm and
    slowly cool - because the yeast slows down too much to eat up the diacetyl it created early on
    in ferment...

    Thanks! I considered bags of ice, etc... Guess I'm gonna have to babysit this bad boy until it
    goes into the fridge for lagering!

  • Posted in thread: Too warm for Wyeast Czech Pils? on 08-08-2012 at 10:02 AM
    Finished a Czech-style pils on Monday evening, chilled my brew down to 56 degrees (the same
    temp as my starter) and pitched.I live in a 100+ year old farmhouse that usually maintains a 56
    degree cella...

    This time I'm stepping up to a full boil. Excellent decision. The difference in my beer when I
    made the full jump ahead was insane. It went from being "good for NFL Sundays" to "competition
    quality."...
