    What is the plastic bucket for? Why the 90 degree elbow leading into the bucket?

  • Posted in thread: 2-Vessel Counterflow-HERMS concept on 05-29-2015 at 01:27 PM
    I don't see how this concept is any different than the two vessel BrewEasy system from
    Blichmann. The difference I DO see is a two vessel HERMS vs a two vessel traditional
    mash/Brutus 20. I'm interest...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter no activity after 10 hours on 05-29-2015 at 01:21 PM
    It probably took time because the yeast were in a dormant state when you harvested them. This
    is good and you just needed to wake them up which sometimes takes longer.

    Did you happen to take a gravity reading with that starter?For those stepping up their starters
    you might want to read the book YEAST or look into yeast growth. You typically want to step
    starters 10 ...

    If you want to bottle I'd say Tuesday or later would work then let the bottles sit 3 weeks
    around 70. It's a good idea to make another beer while you wait.

    Kettle sour is probably it. Let the lacto grow then boil it off to keep the sour flavor but hop
    it. Problem with removing just 1 gallon is you'll need it REALLY sour (probably) to blend with
    4 gallons...

    How were your trub estimates and pre boil numbers?

  • Posted in thread: How do you start your Brett?? on 05-29-2015 at 12:27 AM
    There is no set time to pitch each but you could probably pitch just the trois to sour and it
    would drop low enough. I'm not into pitching different Brett's but if you do trois I would just
    wait until...

    Sour ales are typically made using Lacto or Pedio and not Brett which is just a different
    species of sacchromyces. Also lacto doesn't like high IBUs and if you're making a pale ale
    recipe I don't thin...

    If you do 2L starters, you'll need a 5L flask... consider the foot print of that beast when
    selecting a plate.Or build one yourself!Listen to this man. A 2 liter starter is a lot in a 2
    liter flask. y...
