Was the spent grain fresh from the mash? Or can you store it? I'm thinking of storing some
spent grain for baking/cooking lately in plastic tubs for a week or so.

A switch to plastic may be in order...

In theory, dry hopping does not increase bitterness...in practice that's not really true.
Technically the actual terminology is that dry hopping does not increase IBU, but IBU is not
measuring actual ...

One thing to note is that just because you aren't seeing the gasses escape, doesn't mean they
aren't. The bubbles could be happening in terms of hours apart, or the amount being released is

How can you store dry yeast after opening it. Their website says it can only last a week after

of yeast satchels an...

It could be the lower fermentation temperature, it could also be due to not rehydrating the
