Posted in thread: "Standard" Beers Every Brewery Should Have on 07-22-2016 at 09:03 PM
I tend to prefer breweries that have a focus (saison, brett/wild/sour, and hoppy are what I
typically drift towards), but even most of those tend to serve some the standard

Don't worry about it. Make a starter and you'll be fine. I've ordered plenty of liquid yeasts

I'm guessing the calculation is just off on brewersfriend. Putting the recipe into Beersmith, I

want (you'll ...

I would expect some off flavors with most yeasts. But from my experience, once the first few
days are do...

I don't really have a rule. Whenever I feel the beer is done, I keg. Sometimes with lagers
(typically use the 'quick' method) I'll keg after the d rest. That depends on if I have a keg
laying around t...
