  • I don't update this enough to make sure it's current.
  • Lots
  • Even more

    I just want a forum where I can vent about this. I don't want to use Facebook, because my wife
    would find out that this happened (and since she is asleep now, I would rather she be kept in
    the dark, l...

    I used a seed starting mat for mine. I usually use it for growing tomato and pepper plants in
    the winter, but it was just taking up space, so I decided to give it a try. It works by keeping
    a temperat...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary needed for brett/lacto beer? on 12-07-2014 at 03:16 AM
    Why 5 to 6 months? If you did it right, it should be done in about a month.If you did it wrong,
    it may never finish.I have little experience with the style and the one or two people I know
    who brewed ...

    Last month I brewed a "Berliner Weisse" with Lacto Brevis and Brett Brux Trois. Primary
    occurred in a 5 gal carboy with about 4.75 gal of volume. Right now there is little enough
    headspace that I can ...

    I just poured my first pint from my keg yesterday. This was a pumpkin beer base with Vienna,
    Munich, melanoidin, medium crystal, and flaked barley. I hit around 15 IBU. Including three 29
    oz cans of p...

    I brewed 11 gal of Oud Bruin this past week and have it split into two carboys, one with
    Roeselare, the other with de Bom. I have the de Bom carboy in a keg tub, with a couple heating
    pads attached to...

    My pumpkin beer on De Bom is only a month and a half old, but so far I am pretty underwhelmed.
    I oxygenated mine twice at 5 and 7 days, and right now it's pretty plain. Mild lacto sourness
    and minimal...

    Thank you for the link. Man, either the search function on this site sucks or I don't know how
    to use it. Because now I see five other similar threads asking the same question on the bottom
    of this pa...

  • Posted in thread: 1.084 pitch rate question on 10-15-2014 at 03:36 AM
    I would actually do three packs. I like to pitch at 1 million cells/ml/degree plato like the
    pros do. 3 packs gets you about 350 billion cells, which is just a bit less than you would need
    at the abov...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter with sugar on 10-15-2014 at 03:31 AM
    I don't do this often, but on a couple occasions I've been low on DME when making starters, so
    to combat this I added a little bit of cane sugar (never more than 20-25% of the fermentables).
    I also al...
