  • Posted in thread: Fermenting with dry yeast on 02-19-2013 at 01:27 AM
    So if you do ferment too warm is the only repercussion a sweet tasting beer? And what if you
    just let it ferment longer?You'll get a bunch of fusel alcohol that'll give you splitting
    headaches. Rick

  • Posted in thread: Which yeast for my next batch? on 02-11-2013 at 03:43 PM
    Ugh. I wouldn't use the bread yeast. But then, I wouldn't use an unknown yeast either. Good,
    known strains from Fermentis and Danstar are reliable and inexpensive. Easy to use as well.Rick

    Since you don't have time to make a starter with liquid yeast, I would just rehydrate a packet
    of Safale 05 for the style you're brewing. Safale 05 is a good dry yeast. I've used it many
    times. Good l...

    I'll be tasting later today the first batch I've made with S-04. It's a Best Bitter NB kit.
    Normally I use Windsor for bitters and like the result but NB recommended S-04 so I thought I'd
    try it. This...

  • Posted in thread: What do you all think of Fermcap? on 02-09-2013 at 05:58 PM
    I love the stuff. I can easily do 7.5 gallon boils in my 8 gallon kettle. To avoid boilover I
    use 4 drops. Then when it goes into the carboy I add 2 more drops and tho the initial
    fermentation may be ...

    I wish they had a 7 gallon version of that SS heated/cooled conical. That'd be great.
    Beautifull rig.You're in luck! They make a 7.5 gallon version. :)

  • Posted in thread: Carboy cap vs Auto-Siphon on 02-09-2013 at 05:21 PM
    Lorne, these are different items that do different jobs. I use both, I have the large diameter
    auto-siphon and also use the orange carboy caps.Rick

  • Posted in thread: A great read on conditioning from MoreBeer! on 02-07-2013 at 08:08 PM
    This is a pretty old article. Most of the information it references was written in the mid to
    late 90's. Yeasts have improved a lot since then.And most likely so has Palmer's understanding
    of the subj...

    The only other thing ill add would be the accuracy of your thermometer when you mashed as a
    coupe degrees higher could be a contributing factor as wellI had wondered about this as well.
