    Well the samples I took while bottling had strong alcohol flavors, a quick search shows this
    can happen from letting yeast sit on trub for extended periods, so it's no shock. I am hoping
    once its carb...

    One is a corn lager, the other a red vanilla cream ale. The yeast is from the cream ale, it was
    originally Irish Ale Wyeast. I pitched some S-23 on the lager and US-05 on the ale during
    bottling.

    Just bottled 2 x 5g carboys which lay forgotten in a dark corner of my basement for almost
    exactly a year. Think it will turn out ok?I pitched 1/3 packet of new yeast into my bottling
    bucket both time...

    If someone out there that has good notes would be willing to try repeating a recipe they have
    made where they know the OG, can repeat the same crush and only vorlaufed one quart using my
    method of vor...

    I have a false bottom that I made from a strainer or flour sifter I found at walbaums. It
    happened to be the EXACT right diameter to sit snugly in the bottom of my 5 gallon igloo. I
    have a circular ma...

    I am not trying to make some outrageous claims here or anything. I am simply stating what I
    have found as I thought it would be of interest to people. If there is something wrong with my
    process, by a...

    Brewhouse, but only 96% now. Again, that number can still be a little off as I did not
    scientifically measure, a 10lb scale for the grain, tried to get it as close to spot on as I
    could, then 5 gallon...

    Interesting about the calculator. The fermentation tank loss number is what is throwing it off.
    I am really not sure what that is referring to, but if you put it to 0 then you get the same as
    if you w...

    This is where I have gotten my numbers:The Brewer's Recipe CalculatorThe 18 hour thing is true,
    I was talking to one of the brewmasters at a festival, don't know what else to tell you.Like I
    said, I m...

    I really don't think it has affected my wort quality, as was said in the thread it is basically
    like a HERMS or RIMS system. Total mash/vorlauf/sparge time is still only around 90 minutes. It
    adds lik...
