    I hit the Cysers with sulfite and sorbate. Ran out of time so I just decided to bulk age in the
    cornys instead of bottling. Is this a bad idea? Is the sulphur supposed to have a way to get
    out? Can I ...

    The verdict is in. Fantastic head retention! No problem.

    Thanks for the reply. How about an optimum temp for the potassium sorbate, and potassium
    metabisulfite? The D-47 carboy is clear, the Nottingham carboy is cloudy. I hit it with some
    gelatin and it is ...

    I made a couple of cysers last fall OG 1.091. They both fermented out to around 1.000 in 10
    days. A couple of weeks later I saw airlock activity, and many bubbles rising. I figured it was
    malolactic f...

    I added the dregs, but not the juice. I thought I might wait for some additional advice (which
    just came in, thanks dc I see you did this before). I am anxious to add the juice because I
    have 5.2 gal....

    I tried to do the starter the same as for normal yeast from the LBS. Need to rethink that
    strategy. I found a gallon jug of mango juice at the store. Going to add that along with the
    dregs tonight. Wi...

    Looks like the starter got contaminated. Maybe I will just add the dregs of 2 bottles of Orval.
    Looks like the temp in the closet is 64.

    One last post to wrap this up. I did a count and looks like I doubled my population. out of 335
    cells counted only 22 were the large type I thought were "saccharomyces looking". My gravity
    did not dro...

    I decided to stop the experiment due to asphyxiation and unhappy wife. I also started to think
    that if ethanol was being oxidized to ethyl acetate then the yeast were past the reproduction
    stage (even...

    Still high white frothy krausen. Starting to smell like acetone. Wife is not happy.Edit: Wife
    is really unhappy. We have a newborn in the house and she is losing tolerance for this project.
    It is in a...
