    I have used the brewferm syrup in a chimay clone and I actually didn't think it added very much
    flavour at all.That is 100% correct. For 6 years we've actively brew tested every known
    domestic and imp...

    I pitched 80 ml of thick yeast collected from active krausen of Belgian Blonde the week before
    and my Westy 10 clone finished @ 1.010 very rapidly. I had to use a heat belt to ramp the

    Attempt number two today 11 gallons this time decided to up the pitch rate around 728 billion
    cells last one got stuck decided to put a twist on it fermenting in a fish tank275549Wow, that
    is amazing....

    So 2.5 lb for a 5.5lb batch?Yes, this will match the SRM of the import.

    When u run 11 gallon batches do you use 5 pounds or 6 pounds of d-180We now use 5 lbs of D-180
    per 11 gallon run. It seems to match up better with the import in this amount.

    Looks like my late hops have a lot less IBUs than the posted recipe. Do I adjust the amounts to
    match the IBUs for the 30 minute and 15 minute addition. Or do I keep the 1 oz amountsSecond If
    up the b...

    What is your estimated cell count per milliliter of krousenWe flocc the yeast down to a packed
    sediment in a smaller E.Flask. Westmalle measures very close to 4.0 billion cells per *packed*
    ml. 60-65 ...

    Below is the krausen capture pic only 4 hours after the 2nd 10P wort infusion. The O2 port is
    capped so there is no blow-back. Just a guess before measuring but we probably have 140-160
    billion cells....
