Posted in thread: Year old crushed grain, mashed for test batch, throw away? on 01-04-2011 at 12:49 PM
Mold and staleness are your only real enemies. If it was dry I wouldn't worry about the former.
The latter will probably get you to some degree but may work in your favor. One of the best
porters I ev...

If you're going to pitch dry lager yeast at fermentation temps, then 2 packs is a very good
idea. If you pitch warm and then cool to fermentation temps, you'll be fine with 1. 34/70 isn't
going to be ...

In the absences of better offers, I think you should take the offer you have. If you have

Posted in thread: Do you filter your beer? on 12-20-2010 at 07:27 PM
I've been thinking about it. There are a few yeast strains that just don't like to clear no

in the keg. Y...

It looked goo...

I use Weyermann pilsner all the time with 60 minute boils. Just get it rolling well and you
won't have to worry about DMS.

There are Krogers in South Georgia, just not in Valdosta. I know for sure there's one in
Waycross. There used to be one in Brunswick but I think it's a Harveys now. But yeah, Publix is
