    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.

    In theory, dry hopping does not increase 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
    small enou...

    How can you store dry yeast after opening it. Their website says it can only last a week after
    opening. I don't brew more than once a week so I don't know how I can save money on yeast like
    you sayAdm...

    It's not the amount to yeast you're pitching that's the issue. 1/2 packet sprinkled dry into a
    gallon of typical grav wort isn't that severe of an overpitch.Since you're doing one-gallon
    batches, the ...

    Admittedly, it's a complicated issue; counting yeast is virtually impossible even for
    professionals. I've stuck to 20 billion cells per gram, approximately, for all but the oldest
    of yeast satchels an...

    It could be the lower fermentation temperature, it could also be due to not rehydrating the
    yeast (though that should be an overpitch by a lot, so rehydrating shouldn't have changed
    things that much)....

    Long story short, yes.Longer explanation, it depends on the gravity of the beer. Assuming a
    1.060 gravity beer you are pitching somewhere around 3 times more yeast than necessary,
    (there's approximate...

    I always dry hop with leaf, it just seems to give better aroma.
