We ferment it at 19C, so that's like 66F. As for mash temp we do the main conversion rest at
149 for 30 minutes and then ramp up to 162 for 10min and then 170 to mashout. You'd be fine
with a single i...

harvesting yeast from bottles takes some time, and you'll likely have to step up the starter
once or twice before seeing activity, even though it may be happening. There are some good

Yeah. I know it's made by LG, not sure the model... I'm at work tonight but can check in the

I have a similar walk in closet under our stairs, except it's about 4ft wide and 10 deep. I've
turned mine into my "cellar." I put in a portable AC unit, that vents the exhaust through one

It'll be interesting to see how the yeast behaves in a full fermentation. Yeast that managed to
make it into a bottle I would expect to have very low flocculation characteristics, since we
