  • Posted in thread: When will fermentation start? on 08-21-2012 at 12:29 PM
    You're probably fine. Just taking some time for the yeast population to grow. Oxygenation,
    temperature, gravity, viability and other things will have an impact on lag time.The smack pack
    isn't a start...

    I'd recommend the winemaking starter kit available from a lot of different places like Northern
    Brewer or Midwest supplies. That's gonna include everything you need.

    Yes. Outside of buying more yeast that's probably the best option. They're gonna throw a lot of
    precursor while they get up to population so I would include a diacetyl rest on down the line.
    A good pi...

    Roughly 19 liters in 5 gallons.3 handles and 7 two liters will fill one up with a 2.6 to 1
    mixer to liqour ratio. I've done this and it was a strength that everybody could enjoy. I did 3

    Lager yeasts in particular can be slow starters. Also more co2 will dissolve into solution at
    those lower temps so that too will contribute to delayed signs of fermentation. But if you
    pitched straigh...

    Not to argue but I should correct you, it says "about" 9 times and I got that figure from a

  • Posted in thread: Counter-pressure filling and warm conditioning on 08-21-2012 at 09:40 AM
    Excuse my misunderstanding. Are you trying find out if your bottle-filling practice will allow
    you to avoid the typical shelf life problems at warmer temps?

  • Posted in thread: NB Oktoberfest - question about secondary on 08-21-2012 at 09:11 AM
    You can just seal it up. Bleed off the oxygen with your pressure relief after you transfer and
    lager that bad boy.
