Posted in thread: Can I drop the temp a few degrees to dry hop colder? on 01-27-2016 at 11:55 PM
Be patient, don't dry hop until the beer has been in the fermenter for 14 days. You will
generally be rewarded for patience. After that, there's really no tried and true method of dry
hopping. Craft b...

If you are producing beer that you like, water is one of the last things you need to look at to

Do you have a good equipment profile set up, and are you entering grain temperature?
Posted in thread: Mash Efficiency and OG Efficiency Not Matching Up on 01-19-2016 at 05:14 AM
Put simply, mash efficiency and brewhouse efficiency are quite different. As for OG, you have

I can't re-use the new packaging like I did with the old plastic tubes. There are still plenty
of inexpensive options for storing yeast, but I always chose WL over others because I would
also get a "f...
