  • Posted in thread: Large Floating Trub/Yeast-Cake? on 12-09-2014 at 05:55 PM
    The more I think about it, the more I wonder if there's an infection. A gallon of trub seems
    very excessive, having pitched 1 pack of rehydrated dry yeast into 5 gallons of wort. Thoughts?

    Its an imperial IPA recipe. Sounds like this would lead to an unbalanced hop
    flavor/bitternessIt is that recipe no longer. It is malted barley, water and hops boiled for 25
    mins. Pitch the yeast and a...

    I just finished racking to a carboy. 3/4s of the way through I could see a lot of yeast going
    through the tube. I had to stop with a gallon left at the bottom of the fermenter - all trub
    and yeast. I'...

    ***Thread Update***It is now bottling day - or it's supposed to be. I openned the fermenter and
    saw that the large yeast cake is still on top, along with some of the hop pellet soupiness that
    I added ...

    Looks good, if a little overcarbed?Normally people recommend to rack to the bottling bucket on
    top of the sugar, however I found that I over-carbed because I had a hard time guestimating how
    much beer...

    Sorry to hear that. As you probably already know, freezing yeast kills it.Say a few kind words
    and dump it.

  • Posted in thread: Reusing bottles question on 12-08-2014 at 05:35 PM
    I rinse them only, sometimes after sitting on the counter for a couple of days. Before I
    sanitize check all the bottles for any sign of crud. If I find any they go aside for an
    Oxyclean soak. I had on...

  • Posted in thread: Question about rehydrating yeast on 12-08-2014 at 05:27 PM
    What you do before pitching the yeast all comes down to the number of healthy yeast cells that
    you need to pitch in order to get good beer. However, I find that there's a good rule of thumb
    to exercis...
