  • Posted in thread: Friend or foe? Bug ID assistance needed on 06-23-2015 at 04:02 PM
    Anything good to spray for little buggers of this type? Or is manual removal the only way to
    go?Manual seems tedious, and what do you do when they are 15 feet in the air!?

    1/2" of yeast cake in your bottles sounds like a lot. And if the packs of dry yeast are
    sufficient for a 5 gallon batch of average gravity beer, 1/2 a pack of yeast in a one gallon

    Thanks! I wasn't sure yet how to best guess or calculate how much hotter to get the strike
    water for it to come down once it's mixed with the grains and put in the cooler. Sounds like
    you just gotta j...

    I think you are getting system specific answers here with this question. I'm certainly not
    saying you couldn't run the valve wide open, but keep in mind there are some variables here

    I don't understand. By continuous do you mean adding a pellet or two every couple seconds
    throughout you 60 min. boil? That just seems tedious.

    I brewed a Porter over the weekend and had an oops right at the tail end. I finished the boil
    and turned on my IC. About 5 minutes later I realized I had forgotten to add 1 oz of Cascade at
    1min. I th...
