    I made a steam lager this weekend. I pitched yeast on 8/14/2016 around 7pm at around 75
    degrees. Over night it got down to around 55 degrees and I'm really not seeing any bubbles. 1
    every couple of mi...

    I don't think you need lots of yeast in suspension to make these beers and make them well. To
    be honest, the "yeastier" the beers are, the less I tend to like them. Some of the commercial
    examples I s...

    Just an update. I let it go and on Friday night, 6 days in, it finally started bubblingJust did
    my first lager 3 weeks ago and it took 36 goes to start.If the proper amount of healthy yeast

    This is a great example of the contribution of yeast to haze..... it does not need to
    contribute at all. 007 drops like a rock and produces crystal clear beer easily. I think this
    is a good example th...

    Perhaps providing some constructive feedback instead of being insulting would actually be of
    benefit, no one likes a troll. Further, he didn't make mention the difference in cell count
    between various...

    You have a 15 gallon conical fermenter, but don't understand the most basic aspects of the need
    for a starter or differences in cell count in liquid vs. dry yeast? Wow.

    Sulfur in a weizen is a sign of stressed yeast - probably due to the underpitch.I have had
    great results by slightly under-pitching but making a 1L "vitality starter" (4hrs on a
    stirplate in 1.040 wor...

    Oh.... I don't think this is unique to NE IPA's..... I have tasted the best and worst of
    brewing (home and professional) in every style of beer.Its not unique, but Coff's point about
    it being more pre...

    What I was pointing out is that you said this style is supposed to be hazy, something that I
    contest. It seems to me that folks are using that as a crutch to make beers that are overly
    hazy/murky. Thi...

    I have always been underwhelmed with my own attempts until I found the secret this last batch.
    To produce a great weizen with a good balance of banana/clove and zero sulfur, I did the
