    Let it go. Hope it has a lacto infection and maybe you have just made the first black Berliner
    Weiss. Seriously though, you need to buy a kit beer with good instructions or have an
    experienced brewer ...

    You should test it in distilled water and get it to the temp that your hydrometer is calibrated
    to. If that still gives you a reading of .0994 you will add .006 to any reading that you get.

    I posted this up in fermentation/yeast and after nearly a day with no responses decided it may
    be better here. Sorry for the double post, but here it is.So recently I picked up an infection.
    Luckily i...

    So recently I picked up an infection. Luckily it looks to be confined to only a single mason
    jar. However, said mason jar nearly blew its lid in the refrigerator. Since it smelled and
    tasted good I de...

    With the low flocculation I'd say no. I'd just grow it up and pitch the whole thing. 1L is only
    1/15 the volume of your recipe so I'd be surprised if you could taste the difference.

    According to Tonsmeire,, it is
    heterofermentative. I trust his information, though I'm not sure where he got it from (in all
    likely hood an ema...

    Do you have a pH meter? That would really tell you if anything is happening. If not, you should
    be seeing airlock activity with this strain as it is heterofermentative, capable of fermenting
    sugars an...

    If you are looking to build a foundation of understanding I'd say Mastering Homebrew by Mosher
    is amazing. It deals with the basics of brewing and goes beyond them in easily understood
    language. It's ...

    I wouldn't be too fussed about oxygen exposure for normal yeast or sacc/brett cultures. If
    you're making a starter, fermentation is happening and positive pressure from CO2 production is
    pushing out. ...

  • Posted in thread: Significance, S-bubble or 3 Piece Airlock? on 07-11-2015 at 04:32 AM
    I started with both and never touched the S type until I started brewing beers that require
    longer aging (RIS, Brett beers, ect.). Like others have mentioned 3 pieces are easier to clean
    and you can a...
