Sounds good. As long as you got all the rehydrated yeast slurry into the fermentor you should
be good to go. The main thing with rehydrating is not going to hot with the rehydration water.

Has the yeast completely dropped out of solution? Yeast in solution can carry a lot of hop oil
increasing bitterness. If the beer is cloudy, stick it in the fridge for 2 weeks and try

6. Large scale, it is carbonated first, then filled into bottles and kegs. In your lager
scenario, the 4 months does nothing to increase carbonation if the CO2 during fermentation is
allowed to escape...

What was your starty gravity and fermentation temp? I would assume that being an IPA your OG
was somewhere in the 1.050 to 1.070 range? Either way 1.010 final gravity is good. As far as
the speed of t...

I have thought of that also, but it seems that there is enough thermal mass that it flucuates
