    I pour out 2 quart jars of the yeast/trub. Dump the rest and rinse the fermenter out (or just
    dump it; or dump it, rinse, sanitize - it all depends on how picky you are). Put a pint of
    slurry back in ...

    Well, I took a gravity reading yesterday and I'm happy to report that there was a nice, mild
    hop aroma and the beer tasted good. So, at this point at least - I'm confident the batch will
    turn out pret...

    Well, whatever - I guess I'll give it a try. This is the ideal situation to do so - pouring a
    higher gravity and hoppier wort onto a yeast cake (IPA getting dumped onto lower gravity APA).
    Like everyt...

    I made a pale ale with cascade and centennial about a week ago that had an OG of 1.052. In
    another week or two I was thinking of trying this kit from AIH: have harvested and washed
    yeast plenty of t...

    Don't know - I go pretty "ghetto" with my BIAB setup, but it's cheap, fairly quick and I
    produce beers I am happy to produce and share, so at this point, I am not seeking any more
    brewing equipment.

    I have use Nottingham a few times. It has produce beers as good as with any other yeast I have
    used. I ferment most all my ales in the mid sixties so that is not a problem for me. In fact
    the first be...

    Never used Notty in a stout. Only used Notty twice and when I used it - even when fermenting
    low - I did not like the beers. I will never use Notty again. I've done that kit several times
    and have use...

    OK, that's cool. Do the 30 minute mash, boil the wort, then wait around drinking with the
    buddies while you do a no-chill cooling. It's likely to take 30 hours or more to cool so that
    leaves plenty of...

  • Posted in thread: What's the oldest yeast you've used? on 07-19-2016 at 11:10 AM
    Personally, I get a little nervous about yeast more than 3-4 months old. I know people have
    built up starters with yeast at least 6, if not 12 or more months old. But, given the time/DME
    you have to p...

    I actually cleaned my brew kettle for the first time in probably 15 batches yesterday with some
    Oxy Clean. I normally just hose it out with a green scrubby once the yeast is pitched, but I
    actually cl...
