    Hey GBX,Yeah, I've read through all the pages in that thread. Nobody seems to have a definitive
    answer as to how to solve the issue. Some users have the issue, some don't. I want to figure
    out why and...

    The answers to all your british yeast questions are contained in this thread: alert: wy1968
    is a tough one to bottle condition with. I don't remember if its actually from the thread or my

  • Posted in thread: To hop bag or not to hop bag on 04-23-2015 at 03:47 AM
    I will use a hop sock in the kettle if I'm using pellets or anything more than a couple ounces

    in a keg,...

    Very true but I must point out that the status quo, i.e. Mr. Malty website, is just as
    empirically derived and he's never offered up his raw data for others to review...and we do
    know that his data is...

    No offense to the poster, but how specifically do you know that this statement is true? You say
    'no way', meaning that you think it is impossible. Have you done an exhaustive search of this
    assertion?...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast pitch rate: Single vial vs. Yeast starter | exbeeriment results! on 04-21-2015 at 08:43 PM
    Again, not a counter-argument to what I'm saying. What I'm saying is I'd trust your tasting
    results more than hers because she is not certified; the reason for that is that I have no
    other basis to go...

    Completely agreed that there are plenty of homebrewers out there who are so-called
    "supertasters"; as a matter of fact, one of the best tasters I've ever seen is the wife of one
    of my homebrewing frie...

    When I started homebrewing 5 years ago and the wyeast smack packs were half the size they are
    now. The mr malty calculator was one of the things that had a huge positive influence on the
    quality of my...
