    I'll never settle on a certain yeast. I've heard good things about W-34/70. But I have yet to
    try it. I guess I was just giving my experience on S-23 because all I read was bad things about
    it and I h...

    When I first started lagering I was searching for my "House Strain" Much in like how I did for
    my ales. Of course for my ales I stick to 3 for my "safe bets". My favorite Safale 05, followed
    by 04, an...

    So I've noticed that this particular brew that has used the blow off is already clear after 10
    days. I tried a sample from the hydrometer tube and it also tasted great. Would it make sense
    that a blow...

    My blow off set up is pretty simple. I just grabbed a 1" tube x 4ft and put it into the top of
    my carboy down to my filled container. I filled the carboy almost to the top so I expected much
    of the kr...

    I've tried to search for my question, but haven't found the answer. I've been using airlocks
    for a long time with zero problems. So my question isn't about which one works better, but does
    one change ...

    I try to keep my sessions identical. I add grains 3lbs at a time. And stir to avoid clumping.
    Once I have everything together I take the origional mash temp. At 30 min I re-stir and double
    check mash ...

    The S-33 bottles have been sitting for about 6 weeks now.. 4 weeks at room temp and the 2 weeks
    in the fridge. This beer is now drinkable. The off-flavor is gone, and it tastes like a
    unbalanced wheat...

    BALLS.. Just did another brew last night. My goal OG was 1.054 (70%). Hit 1.060 (75%). The only
    thing that I did different was raise the mash temp from 152 to 158. Everything else was the
    same. Guess ...

    Here's a visual. It has great head retention and lacing. The picture looks a little dark
    because I took it at night.
