    Made this recipe a few times and love it. The last batch I made I noticed it was a bit too
    bitter. When I punched the ingredients into brew smith I'm getting 104 IBU's. Could you tell me
    the specs on ...

    I recently had an issue with an imperial stout that was in a barrel. The yeast wouldn't
    carbonate. I picked up a packet of dry champagne yeast. I rehydrated and then mixed it up well.
    I used a 1/4 tsp...

    i also find the chart confusing. if i am reading it right, the standard pitch rate for 1.090
    lager is 506B and the underpitch is 405B, do you under under pitch to 300B?The Westy 12 is an
    ale. You may ...

    Im not sharp enough to understand how to use that chart... If i make a 2000ml starter with my
    50ml superyeast for 15L of 1074 wort i would probably overpitch like crazy... Since im not
    really discussi...

    I used some bottleharvested yeast plus a smackpack and did a 3 liter starter with it and that
    gave me either too much yeast or a yeast that is too "aggressive". Used that mixed yeast for a
    tripel now....

    I think rockdemon identified the cause of the over-attenuation. A measured starter or
    measurement of packed sediment, (4-4.5 B/ml), will be a starting point toward fixing
    over-attenuation. A microscop...

    Both are pretty directly fermentable.

    My attemept to make another batch of the new world recipe failed. I wanted a high FG
    beer(+1020)to mix with my last batch(1006). But this new batch has a gravity of 1011 after 7
    days. Even though i di...

    CSI - I couldn't find this anywhere, but how much liquid volume is in each D-180 packet?10.2
    fluid ounces = 1.0 lb.
