    I may give this yeast a whirl in my next ESB or Bitter. I won't know if I will do it in this
    brew until I've had a chance to let this one carbonate and condition for a while.

    They might not be getting their dank/resinous notes from their primary or secondary dry hops.
    It could be from their whirlpool hops or even a small addition at the 20-15min mark. My guess
    would only b...

  • Posted in thread: s05 vs winsor experiment on 08-26-2016 at 04:22 PM
    I've also had that same kind of result when using Windsor. I like to use Windsor on ESB-Type
    beers where a little sweetness is acceptable.S-05 is probably the most fool-proof yeast out
    there, unfortun...

    I think that is a wise move, however if you are trying for that citrus juicy note, Galaxy and
    or Citra will get you there. They are both lighter and have less dank resinous notes when
    compared to Eure...

  • Posted in thread: Have a conical? I have a question on brew volumes on 08-26-2016 at 04:11 PM
    I usually keep mine the same size. When I drop Trub and yeast, i'm fine with having less than
    5g. But then again I always brew a 5.5g batch, unless its something that is super dry hopped
    then I will b...

    Yep +1 I Cold crashed as well in anticipation of this... I had almost a full 1.5" in each
    carboy of trub/sediment and hops that transfered over from the primary. Compacted down nicely.
    Use my racking ...

    I can't comment on the Jay bird screen and recommend the dip tube, but I imagine if you reach
    out to him he can help guide you.The Silicon tube works without any kind of distribution pan...

  • Posted in thread: Revitalizing yeast cake with 1.040 wort for next big beer on 08-24-2016 at 01:41 PM
    My only suggestion would be decant the 'beer' off the top. Then when its brew day, I would
    create a quick 1.040 starter again and let it go so when you pitch at the end of the day, you
    will be activel...

    If you are going to run a control panel which controls more than just elements (pumps,
    stirrers, exhaust fans) you will need more than 20 amps. However technically you could run a
    4500W element off a ...

    People seem to like Jaybird's products. I would say thats a good place to start. Can't really
    go wrong there. You still do need to figure out if the pickup tube will work with it. As far as
    the loclin...
