    Or, you could crank up the psi to about 20 and shake it for 2 minutes.....

  • Posted in thread: not enough yeast? on 01-21-2015 at 11:43 PM
    This is similar to another post on here, but not exactly. Im making a 10 gallon batch of lager
    and i went to the home brew store and they only had one packet of each type of it ok
    to pitch ju...

    Welcome to the forum! Your in the right place to learn and become a great brewer! Those
    temperature swings definitely weren't good for the yeast, and could be one cause for such a
    high finishing gravi...

  • Posted in thread: Harvesting slurry without using a secondary? on 01-21-2015 at 11:30 PM
    I use a closed PET bottle sanitized with an iodine solution to store the harvested yeast. I
    know it's not ideal but I don't have mason jars handy for this. Would boiling a beer bottle be
    a better fit?...

  • Posted in thread: Priming sugar for first batch (noob question) on 01-21-2015 at 11:20 PM
    I ended up bottling 50 bottles in 12 oz bottles. This would be 600 oz or 4.6875 gallons. Being
    my first batch I used 5oz of priming sugar.The most that I can find out is that I am currently
    at an elev...

    Gotcha. Wish I knew about that before I brewed it today lol. Guess it's too late to add that
    now...think it'll be ok without it? I'm thinking it just won't be a true light lager thenSent

    I've done something like that before, works really well. I made my own ice for free too by
    freezing water in some plastic tubs from the super market in the deep freeze. :)

    Try some #9 corks, they fit much tighter and put them in all the way. I use them in regular
    wine bottles and champagne style and haven't had one budge yet, some have sat for months and
    months. Of coar...

    Skip the secondary. D rest at room 67-to room temp. You shouldn't need to pitch any additional
    yeast.I love brewing lite lagers, I actually brew them quite often. I realize you've already
    brewed by yo...
