    It is not a true brett, but in my experience it does attenuate quite aggressively, leaving a
    very dry beer. I'd suggest making a starter and pitching at high kreusen and give it at least a
    week to 10 ...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter With WLP 644 on 08-17-2016 at 11:49 PM
    FWIW, I've used this yeast with and without a starter. I ran a 2L stir plate starter for a
    1.075 OG IPA, and just pitched the vial for a 1.050 pale ale. It fermented fine like any other
    good ale yeast...

  • Posted in thread: What precautions to take brewing with Brett? on 12-08-2015 at 06:43 PM
    I've done several brett brews and never had a problem sharing any equipment. This includes
    plastic fermenters, siphons, kegs, etc. I follow standard cleaning and sanitizing procedures
    for every batch....

  • Posted in thread: WLP644 lag time effects on 11-12-2015 at 03:55 PM
    My experience with WLP644 is that it does start fermenting quite quickly, but takes a long time
    to reach final attenuation. I've let it go for a month in primary and noticed a difference in
    gravity be...

    I use 2-3 clamps per hose-to-copper connection on my chiller, and I screw them really tight.
    Perhaps a little more brute force would solve your problem.

  • Posted in thread: What did I do wrong? on 10-29-2015 at 09:15 PM
    I highly doubt an ambient temp of 68-70F is the culprit. I've fermented plenty of beers in that
    range that turned out great. That is definitely *not* too warm to get a decent beer. Your
    attenuation wa...

    I agree with D. White. What the recipe describes is a step-mash. You will still get a great
    beer with a single infusion mash. Brew on!

    1 week is not enough time for set-and-forget. Does your carbonation chart also take in to
    account line diameter, line length, vertical distance between keg post and faucet? These things
    all affect foa...

    Mother of God... I'd probably faint if I saw this in person. Sweet Baby Jesus that is one of
    the most gorgeous basements I've ever seen. You anywhere near Houston? Man, I'd bring you a few
