    Mashed at 170, pitched yeast from 4 Sierra bottles (which aren't even bottle conditioned, but
    are krausened), racked to secondary at 1.037, and now are considering raising beer temp to
    180...honestly ...

    Gotcha. Thanks! So I'm assuming it's a good idea to release the co2 from time to time in order
    to make sure your efficiency is high. That sound right?Not sure what you mean...

    It probably tastes light and hoppy because you made a beer with a 1.050 OG and 135 IBU's!!! I
    wouldn't worry about it now, but next time use 9 or 10 lbs of LME for a big IPA like that. I
    agree that th...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Nutrient in a starter?? on 02-09-2011 at 01:07 AM
    Has anyone used the White Labs WLN1000 Yeast Nutrient? It says to add 1/2 tsp per 5 gallons,
    but if I add it to a starter, do I add a full 1/2 tsp based on the overall beer volume, or do I
    scale back ...

    It's an extract batch. I suspect that his reading is off by a bit too, but I've seen hefes
    attenuate really low before. The Weihenstephaner yeast goes nutz if it gets too warm.I know it
    was an extract...

    If it tastes alright, it's probably not really at 1.003 and I would calibrate your hydrometer.
    If it is really at 1.003, then something went wrong, and it probably doesn't taste right. To
    calibrate yo...

    BTW a 4/11/11 best buy date equals a 12/11/10 production date. White labs dates are 4 months,
    not 3, after production. So, you actually may have needed to make a bigger starter

    171 ppm of chloride and less than 3ppm of sulfate is not going to make a very good apa or ipa.
    IMO in those beers you need higher sulfate ratio

    If I take a mash PH reading, and it is too high, ho0w much lactic acid would I need to add in
    order to get it into range? Is there a formula or equation?
