I did a BIAb of the all-grain NB/Surly Smoke kit back on July 28th. All went well even though I
only hit 1.082 instead of 1.087 per the instructions. Primary fermentation also went well. I
used a 6.5 ...
Posted in thread: Wyeast pre-swollen packs of 1450 and 1056 are they still OK? on 07-30-2012 at 09:01 PM
Same here. I had two packs of 1056 semi-swollen. I was just able to pop the inner pack on each

I seem to make a big mess on brew day and end up with wort everywhere. I BIAB in a Gatorade

I've gotten great esters (mainly banana) from underpitching (a smack pack of 3068 into 1.056
