    My Czech Pils, Světlé Ležák 12°. Been working on this recipe for years and finally
    have got it where I want it. Many malts/batches and 6 different yeasts to get it where I'm
    satisfied. It's ...

    Thanks, so if I were to start out with RO water maybe just a bit of calcium chloride would get
    me close enough?I like my dunkels with 50ppm Ca+ from CaCl2. Mash pH usually ~5.3-4. I added a
    little lim...

    I used this on a pils, and I would have loved some pineapple -- man, did it turn out sulfury! I
    fermented ~6 batches with M84. All but the first with repitched slurry. Didn't get sulfur but I
    don't do...

    I've got 5 gallons of IPL in the fermenter. I pitched two packets of M84 Bohemian Lager yeast.
    It took nearly a week to start and it's been sitting at 12C for three weeks now. It's dropped
    from 1060 t...

  • Posted in thread: Acetaldehyde and Lagers Boil-off at 68.4F? on 08-15-2014 at 08:07 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 11:41 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...
