  • Posted in thread: When do you need a blow off tube on 01-07-2013 at 12:42 AM
    I never used a blow off tube because I have a 30L fermenter and the maxmium I brew is ~23L.
    that's decent headspace there.There was once, quite recently, I'm fermenting a weizenbock of OG
    1.080. I use...

  • Posted in thread: Old Yeast still viable? on 01-07-2013 at 12:28 AM
    I don't wash my yeast and they store well under beer in the fridge, in the dark. 3 months is
    somewhat long to order but there are many experienced brewers who have viable yeasts stored
    even longer.I'm...

  • Posted in thread: how long to age? on 01-05-2013 at 02:44 AM
    I don't think aging has got to do with colour. For me it is always about how complex the beer
    is and how much ABV we are dealing with.For an OG of 71, it borders on the high side. And with
    the spices ...

  • Posted in thread: Which yeast to use for these types of beer? on 01-05-2013 at 12:23 AM
    Maybe I was doing something not right with my yeasts since some of you have different
    experiences.For fresh yeast with starter, i get fermentation going over night and kaursen
    within 24hrs. Very short...

  • Posted in thread: Temperature difference in and out of a fermenter? on 01-04-2013 at 03:42 PM
    ahhh that's gg to be problematic because i have constant condensations on my fermenter walls.
    it's hot and humid here and condensation is common in the fridge. Damn.

    I hear what you are saying, but in the yeast washing thread, they say up to a year. And yes,
    I'd always do a starter (just built a stir plate).Sometimes we do back to back, but I have
    quite the stock ...

  • Posted in thread: High Gravity Yeast on 01-04-2013 at 03:29 PM
    I have an even better idea which i love to use. Buy a pack of yeast, brew a smaller beer with
    it, a pale ale for eg. Harvest the yeast and use it for the next batch. Ideally you should
    bottle amd brew...

  • Posted in thread: Old Wyeast smack pack/starter on 01-04-2013 at 01:17 PM
    Be it big or a normal beer, you will need good viable yeasts in good numbers. So, not brewing a
    big beer is no reason to pitch your current batch of yeast that hasn't shown signs of good
    viability.Giv...

  • Posted in thread: How snobby on 01-04-2013 at 01:05 PM
    After I started brewing for a while, I kinda avoided all commercial pale lagers like the
    plague. I was like.... "I can make better beer than these guys. wtf, why should I buy these
    commercial big boys...

  • Posted in thread: Racked too soon? on 01-04-2013 at 12:51 PM
    It will need a much longer time to complete the job now that there is less yeast in the
    carboy.The instructions definitely suck and with a lager yeast I will give it at least 3 weeks
    in the primary. W...
