    Pitching at 80 won't make the beer take longer, but it may cause some off flavor. I wouldn't
    worry too much. It's a very forgiving g and neutral yeast. Feel free to dry hop now. It won't
    drop much if ...

    Good news. It swelled up nicely and I was able to pitch within a couple hours of brewing.
    Thanks for the input

    Just did it about an hour ago and nothing yet. Chilling my beer now. I have dry yeast on hand
    but was looking for something different than the typical American ale yeast I brew with.There
    was some liq...

    Found it partially frozen in the back of the fridge. Thawed it for a half hour and proceeded as
    normal. Think there's any viability? Normally I'd do a starter but this is only a 4% beer and
    all the lo...

    This is pretty common in my experience. No worries. Just give it a whiff efore pitching into
    your next brew

    You won't get 75% efficiency from one big batch sparge. Break up that sparge into 2 or 3
    batches and as stated above, make sure you're boiling off at a good rate.

    Brewed many versions of this depending on what I had on hand. This time its honey malt instead
    of c10, no Vienna and oats in place of carapils. Hops stay the same.

    Came across a good deal on a keggle and was thinking of picking it up for the occasional double
    batch since I have less time to brew these days. My main concern is chilling 11 gallons of
    beer. All I h...

    I'm over the beer festivals. I was even before I started brewing. I can talk with some people
    about beer, as long as they're not snobby... or uninformed to the point they have no business
    discussing t...

    Love their brews. I haven't attempted any clones, but I've certainly taken a note from their
    beer and an using a ton of oats in some of my recipes. Up to 20 percent. I'm not one for
    following recipes,...
