    The last time I used S-05 was on a pumpkin ale. I mashed in at 154 F, collected 6.5 gallons at
    1.044 OG. Which fermented down to 1.007 (84% attenuation). I was also surprised when I saw how
    beastly th...

    Jmacker, I found this information very helpful when it comes to questions about efficiency with
    a single infusion mash: His results suggest your gap settings for milling the grain reduced

    I figured I could add my 2 cents in to this thread since all the posts discuss running the
    temperature 70 F or more with WLP004. Where as I ran my temperature fairly low.I brewed up a
    batch of BYO "Ba...

    I recently had an Oktoberfest fest from Highlands called Claw Hammer. And Left Hand's
    Oktoberfest. Both are worth trying if you're looking for more Oktoberfest fest beers.

    Two easy solutions that worked great for me... Mash the pumpkin instead of boil, and use a
    glass fermenter so you can easily rack only what you want. Maybe not what you want to hear,but
    hey it works.I...

    gelatin water mixture into the fermentor. And gently rocked the fermentor to mix it up. I'm
    brewing with 6...
