    No you don't need a starter. You can make one but Brettanomyces will eat everything in there
    including the longer chained stuff. Make sure you research what the final gravity of your yeast
    is because ...

    I'd say it is still good. Plenty if people will tell you it isn't worth keeping yeast that were
    stressed or didn't live in optimal conditions. I would wash it and keep some until you taste
    the beer. I...

    I've read horrible things about that pump on amazon.

  • Posted in thread: A little stressed about my starter on 12-18-2014 at 01:51 PM
    Mine do the same thing and I use an air lock. I almost always make a 2L starter in a gallon
    glass jug. It does seem like a small starter because typically people do 1L on a stir plate but
    it doesn't m...

    Wow. This is really cool and now I want to buy that pump and recirculate my BIAB mash.

    Temps? Mine look nothing like yours.

    Do you have plans for each of those saved yeast cultures? If not I'd dump what you don't have
    plans for. I personally wouldn't keep sour cultures. I'd pick 1 Brett and 1 other Saccromyces
    yeast for al...

  • Posted in thread: Affect of volume and/or ? on Fly Sparge times on 12-17-2014 at 02:16 PM
    Yeah I'd believe it takes water the same amount of time to travel through 10" of mash
    regardless of the brewer setup or volume. I didn't consider your second option which now makes
    me realize what you...

    Yea, and that's not that unheard of. I've only done really fast sparging, but I've read that
    doing a slower sparge drain could yield +10%. I'll be trying a different approach on my next
    batch. I'll up...
