Posted in thread: Raising temperatures to finish off beers. Does it do anything? on 10-21-2015 at 09:25 PM
So I just got a fermentation chamber (temp controlled with hot and cool).....My beers have
jumped in quality and predictability, and don't think I could ever go back. I had a IPA go
grain to glass in ...
Posted in thread: US-05 vs US-04 vs Nottingham on 01-08-2014 at 08:49 PM
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

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 12-04-2013 at 12:00 AM
I use 1 packet of us-04 in 5 gallon batches all the time. Some of these batches are higher

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 11:18 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...

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
