Posted in thread: What is your "Go To" yeast and why? on 10-20-2014 at 02:06 AM
Been using wlp013 for pale ale, iPad, stout, porter and really liking it - making me wonder if
I will venture back to us-05 ever again

Have you calibrated your thermometer?And do you think the beers are thin just compared to
extracts? My extracts would finish around 1.018-1.020 but when I made the switch I started
getting into 1.008-...

I'd use a British yeast, doesn't tend to attenuate down as much. London Ale from either white
labs or wyeast has been great for me.

Have you tried other home brews? Outside of some under-attenuation with some extracts, I don't
know what the distinct home brew flavor is...
Posted in thread: Type of DME matter for starter? on 10-06-2014 at 11:55 PM
That should be just fine, typically most will light DME to minimize flavor impact. This is also
why many cold crash and decant before pitching.

Isn't that where this stuff becomes useful?

Or brew a lower gravity or smaller batch, then harvest from that brew for a full slurry

Because I have zero sense of timing, brewed an Oktoberfest- guess it will be whoever I can

I like the brass fitting in the collar for the gas - nice touch!

Can you cold crash your carboy? Best way I have found to dry hop, then just clean your carboy
