  • I have wanted to brew for the last 8 years, but temporary living situations, and a 4 year stint in Germany (right on the belgian border) kept me from assembling all the crap needed to brew until August 2013. I started all-grain and kegging right away, and thus wanted to build a nice system I can grow into. I also am a handy woodworker and have some wiring/engineering knowledge from work.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but this is relevant to a dilemma I'm currently facing.I also
    strongly disagree with "2 weeks" to carb. Commercial breweries don't do it this way, and their
    beers hav...

    FWIW I use WLP 565 and usually start at 70 for 2 days, and keep ramping the temp every day
    until I get to 90F about 10 days in, and hold there for 3-4 days. I haven't played with
    increasing that start...

    Welcome to the community! This is a great site to learn and get advice. I have very fond
    memories of a week touring around Southern Bohemia in your country a few years ago. :)Cheers!

    I'm also curious how this turns out. I love 2565 but my tried and true method is ferment at 60F
    for 2 weeks, raise temp to 70F over 3rd week and hold for a few days. It makes a great beer. I
    use a the...

    in brew likea monk most belgian breweries are aging a triple at like 50F for 2+ months. My
    first triple a year ago was as you described, boozy post keging right after FG was reached. I
    then pulled it ...

    72 is a perfect temp for saison strains. I would try my hand at a few saisons if I were you! :)

    I had nowhere to cold crash so I just racked to keg warm.If I reuse the yeast cake slurry have
    I lost a ton of yeast that went into the keg in suspension? Its been around two weeks since I
