Posted in thread: Hop storage with ziploc vacum sealer on 10-17-2016 at 02:08 AM
Out of interest, how much do the bags cost that you split a lb of hops into? These bags are not
particularly cheap.I usually wait until I use some hops from a bag, and then re-seal in a big
bag, and t...

This sounds like what I'm doing. Bourbon, oak chips, and coffee. I'm going to bring the ABV
from 3.9%, up to about 12%. This means I'll be adding 3 oz bourbon for every 8 oz of Stout,
plus an oz of ex...

Does this control, and fermenting at a lower temp 62-64 compared to 68-72, make the

problem, and a go...

Your are good. Well made beers will keep for a couple of years or more. Just be aware, that

Posted in thread: Repitch On Stressed Yeast Cake on 10-08-2016 at 01:45 AM
I don't put much into the theory of 'stressed' yeast. Yes, it has worked hard and is worn out,
