  • Posted in thread: Create a starter to pitch and to store on 09-22-2014 at 11:06 PM
    Hey Everyone,My idea is to buy a Wyeast starter pack, pitch it to a starter, keep half of the
    ending starter in a mason jar in the fridge (for a month or more) and use the other half to
    pitch to a bee...

  • Posted in thread: How important is grain crush for flavor? on 07-18-2014 at 01:01 PM
    Many BIABers crush their grains as finely as they possibly can, as I do, so I would be
    surprised if this were the issue. Read some posts about BIAB and grain crush. Having said that,
    you can never go ...

    Thanks. Will do. I usually ferment lagers 48-50. Sound about right?Sounds great! I pitch at 46
    then set my regulator to 48... then use a quick lager method so I'm drinking it about a month
    later (see ...

    Perhaps if you have the means an actual cell count is in order. That may be why your recent
    exbeerement had your gravity being higher than with new vials?Potentially, but the difference
    was very small...

  • Posted in thread: Harvesting Yeast from Starters: UPDATE!!! on 07-13-2014 at 10:00 PM
    Here's another question. When I look at step up charts the cell count is dramatically reduced
    when doing a step up. Wouldn't this apply to this yeast that we are harvesting from starters or
    does the y...

    Interesting. Thanks for the post and blog. I think the Dave Watson reply nailed the reason for
    the over carb. Dave said, "That’s pretty cool! My guess would be that you had a wild yeast in
    there that ...

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.
