For a SG of 1.072, I would be shooting for 1.055 - 1.065 Pre-Boil Gravity (depending on the

Some brewers don't like the bittering from FWH, as someone on this forum (forget who!) has

I have bought all 4 of mine from CL listings. $70 for one pair and $80 for the other. I

Smart move dumping the starter and emailing them. I harvest yeast from starters and have been
