Posted in thread: "Chunky" WLP002 -- is that right? on 09-15-2014 at 08:51 PM
I had the same reaction the first time I used WLP002. In my experience, yes it is lumpy/clumpy.
Flocs like crazy, love that yeast!

I've used oxy quite a bit and had the same haze on the bottles if I leave them in the solution
too long. I've read somewhere that this is a reaction of the oxy with really hard water. I've
used a 50/5...

Get at least a 40 qt. and give yourself a little head room pre-boil.

I used a teaspoon of spice a few years ago, you could taste the spice, but it was subtle. I
wanted to bump it up last year, so tried a tablespoon of spice and it was a little
overpowering, totally mas...

My guess is that the Safale died of alcohol poisoning (16 percent ABV would seem a mite high

Back into the fermenter it went; a pinch of nutrient, a new packet of yeast, and shook the hell

I've been making an English type pumpkin ale (British type grains and hops) the last three
years; your recipe looks intriguing. Did you cook the pumpkin? I've been cooking mine (same

Posted in thread: Help me chose chiller upgrade on 09-01-2014 at 09:03 AM
I use a 20 plate chiller (I think it was around $80 when I bought it). It will get your wort
