Posted in thread: Calculating stepping up a starter on 04-27-2011 at 11:17 AM
I thought that a 1L starter gets you 152 billion cells. A 2L starter will get you 200 billion
cells. At least this is what I have read.

I used 3% in a 1.045 german ale. I thought it was too much. I scaled it down to 1% and it was
better. I guess it depends on how high of a gravity your brew is.Conehead

If you keg, you can run some co2 in through the out tube and purge it a few times a day. It
takes time to work. This was suggested to me and I haven't tired it myself.

I have read that the best before date is 4 months after production.
Posted in thread: Stir plate effectiveness concern-maybe too small of a stir bar? on 03-11-2011 at 06:17 PM
I use 2L starters and I bought my stir bar from e-bay for around $5.00 each. It's 50mm with

I did all that. Oven baking, PBW, star san, you name it. Whatever got in it, I couldn't get it
out. As soon as I used my old immersion chiller, good beer.

My funny tasting brews were due to my plate chiller. I stopped using it and my brews were back
to tasting normal. I did everything you were supposed to do to clean, sanitize this plate
Posted in thread: 60 degree basement too cold for ale? on 02-18-2011 at 12:22 PM
60F is perfect. I have a temp controler and didn't need it. I cooled to 68F and it started
going when it cooled down to 66F. It has been 67F for a week.
Posted in thread: Washed yeast....1st time....bubble jones.... on 02-07-2011 at 03:14 PM
$4.28 a gallon. It is in Toronto. Too big of a city for me. No, driving would cost me way over
that. If I am successful on washing this yeast and re-using it a few times, then it's basically
free. I b...
