Posted in thread: Ever tried Champagne Yeast to finish a beer? on 07-30-2015 at 11:28 AM
I just opened the packet of dried yeast and sprinkled it in. That's what my homebrew shop told
me to do. I know it fermented it down because the gravity lowered. I know champagne yeast is

Curious if you guys have really seen a noticeable difference in your beer between using O2 and
an aquarium setup with inline filter and diffusion stone. I pour my kettle's content through a
Posted in thread: Ever tried Champagne Yeast to finish a beer? on 07-29-2015 at 11:46 AM
I used a champagne yeast (can't remember the strain) to get an Oberon clone to get a lower FG.
It was stuck around 1.018 and I wanted 1.012 or so. Looking back, I wish I would have just let
it be. I f...

My GUESS - if it was a dry yeast - was that it was Safale 05. You're probably safest just doing
what you say - buying new yeast since you're not even sure of the strain. Even if you pitched a

I've never pitched fresh wort on an entire yeast cake. From what I understand, if you do, you
should make sure the beers are at least similar in style and the new batch of wort being poured
onto the y...
Posted in thread: Can you brew great beers with liquid malt extract? on 07-28-2015 at 10:43 AM
I think great beers can be made as long as you're sanitary, have a good recipe, ferment at the
right temp and pitch the proper amount and style of yeast - that goes for extract, BIAB,
partial mash or ...

I'd just wipe down the Bubbler with a sanitized paper towel, throw on a blowoff tube and enjoy
the yeast show.
Posted in thread: First Batch Seems to be Progressing Nicely on 07-27-2015 at 03:42 PM
You will want to leave your bottled beer at room temp for AT LEAST 2 WEEKS, if not three,
before moving them to the fridge. Congrats on the debut brew! C. Slobber is a solid choice and
gets better wit...
Posted in thread: saison with wyeast 3711 on 07-27-2015 at 11:50 AM
The only saison yeast I've used is 3711 and I used it on NB's Ares de Biere and I really
liked this brew. I made batch A, harvested yeast and made batch B with the harvested yeast and
both turned ou...
Posted in thread: Are there any temp tolerant yeast strains out there? on 07-26-2015 at 10:27 AM
O5 can go up to 75, according to WYeast's website. I know many complain of funky flavors when
you go north of 70 with it, and I try to keep it cooler myself, but I know I just did Dead
Ringer with it ...
