    I think I just used some in a brew a few months ago. I belive the alpha was around 3% just as
    the above poster said. It could be possible to be only 1.5 though i'd probably go with whats on
    the packag...

    i just put mine on the floor of the freezer. I figure the fermentors will be sitting on the

    what happens....
