Sorry if I missed it, did you use the 05? Had another one of the commercial versions the other

OK, so I made the beer above. Using us05 dry yeast. Fermented in the high 50s/low 60s. It

15-18 psi at 1*C is going to give you over 3 vols of CO2. I think you always lose a little

Yeah, I would suspect crush before grain quality, are you ordering pre-crushed? I've had no
