    don't do this, just leave as is and use it in your next beer. there isn't a brewery anywhere in
    the world adding boiled water to yeast slurry and for very good reasons. if your beer and yeast
    cake are...

    Yes, boat loads.

    48 hours is the most I'd go, and really I think 24 is probably plenty. Also, your original
    post, says 2 step 2 liter... Are you plan on doing both at 2 liters? If so, I don't think
    you'll get much gro...

    It's fine, it's what I do. Just a couple of things to keep in mind. Might be stating the
    obvious, but if it's all actively fermenting, it defeats the propose. The aromatics go away

    water in mi...

    For primary fermentation, you'll want a 6 or 6.5 gallon carboy I think. I don't think there's
    any downside to having too much head space... Too little gets messy.

    10 days later and it still looks like a glop of trub. I don't see any striations that might be
    yeast. I may just start one to see if it works before committing to use it in a batch...I'd bet
    it's almo...

    I've got a couple terrarium heaters stuck to the inside of my freezer. I could make a saison @
    0 degrees ambient if i wanted to.
