    Brew day went ok, ended up adding .25oz of EKG at 75 along with the Fuggles to make up for the
    difference in AA's the the Fuggles I got had, didn't realize the difference till after I bought

    A 1.6-1.8L starter isn't much, I have read that some research has.shown that a 1.5ml starter
    should be the starting point when pitching from a smack pack or WL vial. So, I would agree that
    you under p...

    Picked up ingredients for this today, began yeast starter on Tuesday, smack pack was from

    softened water...I was hoping there would be a better test that could be done, possibly some
    kind of density...

    Hopefully this is the right section for this...We moved into a new house back in August, since
    then I have made 4 beers, a Pumpkin Stout, Black IPA, a Christmas Ale (Belgian), and a Vanilla

    anything else. Some malt in the background, but the caramel I tasted in the wort samples is
    more or less n...
