Posted in thread: what beer can i brew that will leave a yeast cake good enough to ferment a RIS on 08-21-2014 at 03:05 AM
I'm probably going to do a pale ale (Amarillo) with Denny's favorite for the starter beer for
my no sparge 1.100 RIS, or WLP007 if I can get it. I'll use half the cake, roughly 400 billion

needed when using a GFCINEC 406.3Yes, for it to trip there must be current flowing to a ground
