A thought on your yeast conundrum.For millennia, the way people got yeast for their next batch
was to reuse from an old batch. I think it would NOT be cheating to either (a) save some yeast
from your ...

I guess I'm not sure either. Tasty McDole does it though so I assume there is a reason. Can
anyone think of any advantages?"On brew day (night actually) I pour the still "beer" off the
starter and rep...

Normally, after cold crashing a starter and then decanting off the starter beer, I just let the
yeast warm up to pitching temps (48F for a lager), and then pitch into my cooled wort at the
same temp (...

Thanks BigFloyd, I'll check out Brewers Friend and compare vs Mr Malty.Yes, I'll be using a
stir plate. I just made one based on the DIY thread, looking forward to using it for the first

By the way, for what it's worth, my 2124 has a date of 12/13. Beersmith tells me that a 2L
starter with this one pack will give me 361 billion cells, which is in the ballpark. Maybe I
just go with the...

I'm making a starter today for a batch of dark lager (schwarzbier, also my first lager) that I
will be brewing this weekend. I have a 2L flask with a stir plate. I was planning to use a
Wyeast 2124 (b...

Did you follow a tutorial?yes, i used this one: looked about about 10 sets of plans and this
is the best (particularly the idea of using acetone to thin the jb-weld to pourable consistency
and then ...

+1 for heat stick. takes about 30 min at the hardware store, $30, and 30 min to build. useful
for bringing up mash temps when you undershoot as well.
Posted in thread: New Belgium White IPA Clone Recipe? on 10-31-2013 at 06:43 PM
I believe you need to use a belgian wit yeast in a white IPA. And the website certainly doesn't
say anything about mosaic or amarillo hops.I've brewed a Chainbreaker clone using the Belgian

This looks amazing. It won't be far off a Deschutes Chainbreaker, but with a cleaner profile
from the American yeast (vs Belgian yeast in the chainbreaker) and a bit heavier on the citrus
hop aroma. I...
