    My understanding is that if it's "induction capable/ready" then it will work and heat up and
    produce the maximum output. If it's not ready then it simply won't work, as opposed to working
    sort of, at ...

    Nitrogen would smooth out the rough edges of a RIS, very much changing the beer for the worse
    imo.

  • Posted in thread: Roeselare in high OG? on 10-22-2014 at 07:35 PM
    The bugs and Brett might struggle in the higher alcohol environment. Personally, on a high OG
    beer, I'd pitch it all at the same time and let it roll. The sacc will take off, and the
    bacteria will too...

    Quic cell phone response. There's a lot of good threads on here about yeast life cycle,
    aerating starters vs. The wort, and more. I'm assuming you're suggesting starters just need o2
    and not the sugar...

    See the variation in some of these results with the same device makes me think there is
    different efficiencies based on the pot used. I have a couple ic1800 and have noticed a
    difference depending whi...

    I hear ya.. I find caring for active cultures to be a much bigger pita. I have a couple Brett
    and bug cultures I manage and I'm ready to quit it. Pita. The only downside to the frozen yeast
    is remembe...

    I use these. I don't freeze a pitchable quantity though. I freeze about 20 ml and grow a
    pitch up from that (2 step starters). (and hold back some of that starter for
    freezing)Viability has been jus...

    You might consider freezing a small amount mixed with distilled water and glycerin, especially
    since you are planning to do starters for each batch anyway. This is how I keep seldom used and
    seasonal ...

    Yes but only to a minor degree...unless you're talking dead yeast at the bottom. There's trub
    intermixed down there as well. The density, or cell count per volume, is more critical. If
    you're top crip...

    1/2" in a pint jar doesn't sound like too much tbh.
