  • Posted in thread: What's more important-- yeast vitality or viable cell counts? New xBmt results! on 06-29-2015 at 12:48 PM
    Definitely interesting. I typically go with an overnight starter that is pitched around 12
    hours after creation, using just the swirl here and there method. I always like pitching when
    they're still a...

    Over the last few years, homebrewers have been made very aware of the importance of proper
    yeast pitch rates, which many ensure by making a starter a few days prior to brewing. While
    this certainly in...

    Thanks everyone! So from the sound of it, fermcap doesn't effect head retention on the finished
    product? I had avoided it because of that, but after reading the article from Brulosopher and
    the recomm...

    Fermcap can also be used in fermenter- keeps krauzen from going nuts, and increases your
    hoppiness for a reason I can't recall at presentThis has never worked for me. I've even added a
    drop while blow...

    Great job. Cheer!

    I've pitched unrinsed harvested yeast slurry that had gelatin in it, different than what you're
    asking, but it worked great.

    The 2 best ways I've found to save money, and I brew quite a bit:1. Stop worrying about having
    a big shiny system, some of the best beer I've tasted came from a BIAB brewer who boils in
    aluminum.2. BU...

    I've done an exBEERiment comparing primary-only to secondary on a split batch of the same beer
    (link below), I'm of the opinion it doesn't matter. If you're careful, racking to secondary
    won't introdu...

do you ever get any of that homebrew taste in your brews???
I also see you got some stuff for sale on craigs...

@malt20 Hey, Cole. Homebrew taste? I think I know what you're referring to, but I've only experienced it when using extract. I'd have to say most of my beers turnout quite well, which I think is primarily due to using good yeast starters and fermenting at the right temperature. If you'd care to try mine for yourself to see, you can come over sometime and taste ;) Seriously, feel free to text anytime.

I am selling some stuff due to getting new equipment. Let me know if you're interested in any of it.
