  • Posted in thread: Safale 34/70 yeast question. on 07-23-2015 at 02:16 PM
    Ive also never gotten any significant esters form 34/70. Always well attenuated, crisp and
    clean. To those mentioning fermentation temps, are you pitching warm, then cooling to the main
    fermentation t...

    Just tapped this last week. It's been in the keg for just about a month now. I tasted a glass
    by itself the first night and it seemed to me to be really close. So I setup a triangle test
    with the real...

  • Posted in thread: How do you cold crash? on 07-14-2015 at 12:47 AM
    The blow off setup will almost certainly lead to suck back. You could use a 1 pc. "S" airlock,
    or if it's a narrow necked carboy, just cover it with sanitized foil.I did read in the "Yeast"
    book about...

  • Posted in thread: yeast starter time?? on 07-12-2015 at 03:12 PM
    Also depends heavily on the yeast. Once it's done fermenting the starter wort, a yeast like
    Wy1968 will floc out very quickly without any crash cooling - very convenient. Some of the less
    flocculent y...

    You can pop the caps off to relieve some pressure than re-cap them with freshly sanitized caps.
    That should help at least :mug:Another thing that will help the foaming is chilling them to a
    very cold ...

    Back when I bottle conditioned lagers, I would intentionally dip the siphon in the trub cake
    near the end of transferring to the bottling bucket. I've been told it's not necessary, but I
    figure after ...

    You didn't indicate how much priming sugar you added. Just because you used a calculator
    doesn't mean we can rule out wrong amounts due to user error :)

  • Posted in thread: Too much yeast resulting in over-carbonation? on 07-08-2015 at 02:56 AM
    Where did I go wrong? Too much yeast? Too much priming sugar?That is a somewhat high amount of
    priming sugar, but I doubt the source of your issue. Did you measure FG at all before deciding
    to bottle?...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast/Aeration Question on 07-08-2015 at 02:45 AM
    If you already have krausen, definitely don't oxygenate. The lack of airlock activity is
    probably just due to the fermentation bucket not being sealed, or an otherwise slow

  • Posted in thread: Hydrometer readings on 06-11-2015 at 03:39 AM
    [1] Strictly speaking the additional fermentation from adding sugar will lower the FG by a tiny
    amount since alcohol has a lower density than water, but that is independent of the sweet/dry
    issue and ...
