    I've never use wet hops, but... marked in red^, that sounds like an awful lot of (wet) hops,
    40-80 oz! Typically you'd use 5x the weight in fresh wet hops compared to dried ones. Maybe cut
    all those a...

  • Posted in thread: Potential issue with White Lab Pure Pitch packaging on 08-24-2016 at 01:21 AM
    No need to beat it into a foam. Just lightly message, cut and pitch into your starter or wort.
    I find it easier than the vials to pitch.

    Lagers typically are fermented at about 50C and then are lagered(stored cold) at just above
    freezing for several weeks. They take quite a bit longer than ales to ferment and condition at
    those tempera...

  • Posted in thread: Mash time based on starch conversion on 06-21-2016 at 04:06 AM
    Kolsch is usually mashed at 150F or lower. Conversion takes longer at lower temperatures.
    That's just the nature of enzymatic action.

    Sounds like you have kept good notes, so you have everything you need to recreate the good
    version. All you need to do is compensate for the differences in your new system and make all
    of the same mis...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast pitch questions on 05-06-2016 at 04:14 AM
    Not really scientific, but it works well for me. I use White labs yeast as a rule and saved
    several of their vials before they went to the new packaging. As a rule, the vials were about
