  • Posted in thread: Acetaldehyde and Lagers Boil-off at 68.4F? on 08-15-2014 at 07:07 AM
    AJ, I've always done a d-rest at the end of ferm but never let my chamber rise above 65F. It
    occurred to me that my winter brews won't reach 70F w/o heat. All I need do is plug a bulb into
    the heat si...

    I brew mostly lagers, build RO with minimal additions, check and adjust pH, ferment in a temp
    controlled chamber and pitch adequately sized starters using yeast calculator software. Allow
    temp to rise...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone haerd of these new Yeasts from Mangrove Jack's (New Zealand) on 07-04-2014 at 10:41 AM
    I used the Bohemian Lager strain on multiple batches with the first one being direct pitched at
    50F, the rest re-pitched from harvested yeast. The statement about the packs being 50b cells
    makes sense...

    tart with r...

    2X Decocted German Pilsner. BM Pils, BM Vienna, Carapils, Spalt hops. Been in the keg since
    3-15, she's coming along nicely.

  • Posted in thread: Lager recipe with ale yeast on 03-30-2014 at 12:34 PM
    Steve, I've fermented dozens of batches with W-34/70 dry lager yeast from 48F all the way up to
    68F. It barely produced any esters at 68F and has been very lager-ey all the way up to 58F. I
    pitch 1 pa...

    Munich Dunkel recently kegged and carbed after gelling in secondary. This is the second pull
    off the keg.

    This is Wyeast 2124, second harvest (gen 3)from repitched yeast. I've harvested for years and

    stored in th...
