    Thought I would weigh in with my experiences, because this is something I looked into before
    exploring cheap yeasts for neutral flavoured beers (as far as yeast is concerned).First thing
    is that it wi...

    Only used 34/70, but it is a phenomenal yeast. Clean and crisp and much more predictable than
    its liquid equivalent. Makes amazing common beers as well.

    Ya makes sense, boiling isnt sterilizing. You need steam and high pressure for that. Might work
    if you freeze it though.

    Did a starter instead. Feels like too much of an infection risk.

    I will prob end up doing a starter or small batch anyways, so dont rip into me too hard if this
    is stupid.I plan on making a 5gal batch of a 5% lager in the next 7 to 10 days. Usually for
    this I would...

  • Posted in thread: First all Grain, where did i go wrong? on 12-03-2013 at 11:00 PM
    I use 1 packet of us-04 in 5 gallon batches all the time. Some of these batches are higher
    gravity as well. Your fermentation might not be as clean as using 2 packets (although I think
    it is negligibl...

  • Posted in thread: Will have drinkable beer for Christmas? on 11-29-2013 at 06:58 AM
    A more anal brewer might frown on this sort of thinking... but whats the abv of the beer? I
    usually give the beer 1 week fermenting per 2.5% abv as a general rule, though I have turned
    some 7%IPAs aro...

  • Posted in thread: Centennial Blonde Variant (for those who want a bit more hop) on 11-27-2013 at 10:18 PM
    I really liked the idea of brewing something a bit tamer for "sessions" on weekends, and came
    across the Centennial blonde recipe. Originally I planned on simply brewing the recipe... but
    decided to c...

  • Posted in thread: BoPils came out "meh" on 08-28-2013 at 08:20 PM
    I am still learning and experimenting with lager brews, so it could very well be me screwing
    up... but I can confidently say it is not as easy to work with as 2124. The yeast doesn't seem
    to flocculat...

    Tried Brewing with Wyeast 2124. Wow. Budvar yeast is garbage in comparison, I don't think id
    ever go back to it.
