    I run a mini mash like this for most of my beers. The best I ever did was 75% efficiency. 50-65
    is far more common.

    I've used both quite a bit. I prefer star san by a slim margin.They both work fine but star san
    tastes better when you are siphoning it and accidentally get it in your mouth.

    For me, the white labs irish ale yeast is a must for stouts. It makes for a very clean tasting

    I don't use wheat in my stout. I use .5 lb flaked barley. I use target or NB for bittering and
    shoot for about 40IBUs. Its a pretty good representation of a dry irish stout.

    You are describing a kolsch almost to a tee. Highly flocculating, highly attenuated and
    light.Use german pils and maybe some wheat with noble hops.Or you can tweak the grain bill and
    hopping and call ...

    I just sampled a bit of an APA I got going into secondary. I used warrior, perle and
    cascade.I'm very impressed with the perle flavor. I might have to try the perle saaz combo.

    don't bother repitching. The yeast will finish up. Stuck fermentation just doesn't happen that
    often from my experience unless its a high gravity brew. Patience. :D

    You can find DFH continuous hopping schedules around. I know the NB forum has some clone
    recipes. Not sure how close they are.

    I just used hallertau on a kolsch but I sincerely wish I had used saaz.
