  • Posted in thread: Yeast still good? on 09-10-2008 at 12:01 AM
    I have never had good luck with White Labs lager yeast. It either doesn't ferment all the way
    or ends up tasting funny. A packet of dry Saflager pitched directly into the wort has always
    worked out gr...

    So I have a starter growing.....There is a lot of crap on the bottom of the carboy.Do I rack
    and repitch or do I toss the yeast on top of all the old stuff?

    What will the wine yeast do to the flavor? I'd like it to get a little lower gravity, but it
    tastes about right as it sits (seems I made a slightly more bitter Bigfoot).

    Made a partial mash barley wine, OG 1.105, 120 IBU! (planned on letting it sit for a long time
    anyway)After 3 weeks primary on WL Edinburgh yeast, it seems kinda pooped out at 1.038.If I am
    going to r...

    Thanks. I don't use any chlorine bleach, I uber-filter my water, and rinse everything before
    the wort hits it.Here's to hoping it goes away with time.

    I've made a light american style lager recently, other than the gravity never going below
    1.020, it worked out fine, ended up tasting perfect and carbonating perfectly.

    With all of these things breaking....doesn't anyone else use a digital thermometer? I always
    use my automotive multimeter with a Type K thermocouple in the kitchen. Easy to sanitize, never
    going to br...

    When I pour a pint it is usually a little ways below the rim. Thus the 22 ouncer has some
    waste. I really prefer to sit with a few friends and fill everyone's glass at once, but do not
    want to deal wi...

    Where to get large bottles for homebrewing?22 oz is too big for one glass, too small for 2
    glasses.I have some 32 oz bottles someone gave me that are almost perfect, about 2 1/2 glasses
    per bottle.I'd...

    Fankhauser's page is pretty good, but I don't agree with using Junket. It just doesn't give you
    the same results. Plus he doesn't (unless he's added more) get into the more detailed aspects
    of the pH ...
