    cool. thanks for the info and insight. I've just re-pitched an actively fermenting starter of
    the same yeast to see if I can clean things up at 65 degrees. I'm guess it is in fact a yeast
    health issue...

    hey there,does anyone have an opinion on the optimal time in which to start drinking a

    higher amount of diactyl present post primary fermentation (2 weeks at 50) and 3 day rest at
    62? I picked up m...

    Funny and reassuring that you mention a similar profile to WLP 007, gbarron. I just pitched a
    1L starter of the 1217 into an Arrogant Bastard clone yesterday as my LHBS was out of the
    WLP007, describe...

    hullo there allSo I'm working on an old ale recipe, and felt it would be nice to feature a bit
    of the wild character in there in a controled manner. Basically, fermenting the batch from a
    yeast cake o...

    tun. I got a similar effect from my hockurtz double decoction as well.all the other infusion
    mashes in whi...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone ever on 08-29-2012 at 09:44 PM
    So I'm wondering if others have noticed a greater amount of what I'm assuming to be leftover
    protein goo-like material on top of the grainbed in a no sparge, single influsion mash vs.
    batch sparging, ...

    hey there AmandaK,glad I found this thread. I also brewed a golden strong of just about the
    same gravity, with just about the same fermentation temp profile, and was wondering how to
    handle aging the ...

    previous similar ...
