    I wish I'd known about Lacto d before I paid cash for it too, but I think you have a decent
    plan. You could try a sour mash too. Anyway, I might use this lacto strain again, but if I did,
    it would be ...

    L. delbrueckii is somewhat infamous for its lack of acidity.The same guy (Michael Tonsmeire)
    said it was the worst [homebrewing] product he'd ever used in a recent HBT interview with
    Austin.I've used ...

    I just tasted a little of my starter, and it tastes like it smells: fruit and cloves, just as
    if I'd put hefe yeast in there. Not a hint of acidity. So, unless the tube contained some, I've
    got an "in...

    I'm planning to brew a gose (OG 1.040) this weekend using S-05 and WLP677 (L. delbrueckii). I
    made a 1 gallon starter with 8oz malt extract (1.020) on Saturday night and have been keeping
    it warm in a...

    Your temperature differential is more important that flow rate.Thanks, that's what I was
    hoping. I never really did better than 25 mins with hose water in the summer, so if I can get
    close without nee...

    Yesterday I hooked the pump up to my 50 ft 3/8" OD copper chiller and found that it took 5:15
    to pump 2.5 gal of water. That's about 0.48 GPM, which is a little more than a trickle. So far,
    not impres...

    Cool, thanks! I liked the idea of double duty.

    Thanks for the recommendations! This pump looked good and was inexpensive, so I went for it:
    report back when it arrives.

    @Rockn_M: I'd really like to change my process as little as possible. I'm not opposed to BIAB,
    but it is a big change. I guess I'd be carrying less water overall, but it doesn't really solve
    the chill...

    Hey all,I'm returning to the hobby after a 2-year hiatus due to dietary changes and a new, less
    brew-friendly apartment. I'm re-introducing beer because, well, I want it, and I'm looking for
    a solutio...
