I just made my first oktoberfest yesterday. Actually getting ready to go pitch the yeast this

I just brewed this for the second time, two days ago. My mash efficiency was much better then
the first time I made this and hit 1.111 with no dme additions.I used my LHBS O2 setup because

Just brewed 5 gallons. Had a little higher efficiency then normal and hit around 1.043 OG. I
made a starter for the WLP-001 just solely for the fact of keeping a pint manson jar from the
starter for a...

That is surprising that you got down to 1012. That is 80% apparent attenuation with a lower
attenuating yeast and mashing at 154. EricI mashed at 153-154F and pitched a 1.7L starter of

Yeah, i did. I also noticed they didn't have them for sale or a list of distributors. Not sure

I know this is an older thread but I wanted to share my experience with Chi Company and
Vent-Matics. I purchased 4 "Vent-Matic" faucets from Chi Company in late 2013. I have been
using them since then...

I was looking for a rye pale ale recipe to brew this weekend and I think this may be it. I

I just brewed this yesterday. I brewed a 5.5 gallon batch and added 10% to the grain bill to
account for my usually crappy and inconsistent mash efficiency (~66-70%). I actually got about
74% instead ...

It takes a few extra days to clear when you rack all the trub but won't hurt anything unless
you have a ton of hops like in an iipa and then you may get a vegetal of flavor from all the
hop matter.I u...

I brewed this yesterday also. I hit 1.106 but added a pound of DME to my boil to give me about
6 more gravity points to account for poor efficiency (~60%). My brew buddy came over to help
and he sugge...
