    Just following up, I bottled today at 1.005. The beer hasn't quite dropped clear yet, but it's
    well on its way, and I'm on a bit of a tight schedule. Still had a very nice "Dupont"
    character, but the ...

    Well, I had to do it. After taking another gravity reading yesterday the SG hadn't changed
    since I first posted the question. So I pitched a pack of M21 French Saison. The hydro sample
    did taste prett...

    I would love to try these, but I have teens and don't see a way to lock the taps. Per licks
    have a metal tab on the bottom of the tap that allows for a lock. Guess I'll have to wait a few
    more years u...

    I pitched 1 rehydrated pack into a bit over 2 gallons of 1.076 wort. Looks like it went through
    it in just under 48hrs. The krausen is sinking now.Thanks, Radboud! I'm really looking forward
    to trying...

    I believe you'd be better off with two hydrated packs. That's a big job for one pack.I agree
    with you. Usually I rehydrate two (or more) packs for bigger beers with other yeasts. Just
    trying to get a ...

    Did a tripel with M31 today, airlock activity 1hr after pitching. Looks like thing thing is a
    beast!I think a tripel is my next brew, so I have some questions:1) Batch size?2) Starting
    gravity?3) Numb...

    I always bottle my Belgians. I find they mature better in the bottle than the keg. Also, my
    Belgians are often big beers, and I don't want to tie up kegerator real estate while I take my
    time drinking...

  • Posted in thread: Rehydrate "finishing" yeast? on 06-29-2016 at 01:04 AM is a
    good read about blending 3724 with another yeast to get quick turn around.It seems that I have
    read other ...

    Just checked my brew logs on the last two beers that I used 3724 and it basically took about 5
    to 5 weeks before it was finished....I would wait another week. The times I have used this
    yeast you will...

    mangrove jack's french saison yeast so Im not really sure how high it usually attenuatesYeah,
    it's my first tim...
