    I left the starter in there, but on this 2g batch I just double pitched after hydrating with
    cooled boiled water. I think you *might* be able to get away with it, but I also think that is
    a pretty big...

    1 ounce of honest to goodness OxiClean Free per 5 gallons of very hot water to soak off labels,
    and soak a carboy. Never had problems with labels basically falling off, or a krausen

    Update on dual pitching. It just works. 24 hours after pitching 2x EC118 onto 2g of hard
    limeade I have active fermentation. I've not had a start like that ever with lemon/limeade.I'll
    be updating my ...

    DmentD,I posted back on 3-22-10 about pitching with two packets of yeast (EC-1118). Worked very
    well for me too. Any future batches I make will always be fermented with two
    packets.Cheers!Gah! Sorry I...

    Man, once my batches got going, they fermented out in less than 2 weeks. I used 2 packets of
    EC-1118 (rehydrated) and pitched directly into 5 GAL of lemonade with no starter...Oh yeah, as
    a postmortem...

    Still no change on batch #2 with the starter made from White Labs yeast, but somehow I was
    expecting that.Batch #1 that got kicking with the EC-1118 is fermenting like gangbusters.
    Dropped to ~1.032 a...

    Time for a progress report, I s'pose.The EC-1118 starter, with 6 hour spin/additions failed
    spectacularly. Not a bubble or gravity shift 72 hours after pitching... just a nice, growing
    layer of yeast ...

    Here's a very late response, but maybe worth it for future reference: North by Northwest
    Restaurant and Brewery. Great food (a bit fancier than plain 'ol BBQ, but definitely worth it),
    and excellent b...

    I always laugh when people talk about "converting" other people. Why would you do that? All
    that means is more people who want your homebrew and more competition for the craft beers in
    the beer store....

    Depends. I know some people who would never turn their nose up at a good toilet-bowl
    sangria.Now THAT is funny.
