The wlp002 attenuation is only 63-70%. Not knowing your starting gravity it would be hard to
say but the yeast might be done. At a 1.070 SG x 70%=1.021. There are a lot of examples of 100%

One other pieces of info I liberated from the Zymurgy article was the author did a yeast
starter made up of yeast from bottle conditioned beers. At a party he asked that after people
poured their bott...

I did the reading on Crisp Apple which had the 1.030 gravity reading. I let it go flat before
the reading. Still shocked. It crossed my mind to do a reading on a flat Coke and see where it

I didn't add any sugar. I checked the reading a couple times because I didn't expect it to be
1.049. It was the Costco apple cider.

I was trying to get a ballpark on how much to back sweeten a batch of cider if needed. I took a
gravity reading of an Angry Orchard and it was 1.030. It was pretty sweet but I would have

Just moved to the Uniontown Metro area. I assumed my access to good beer was over. I'm happy to
report I've found good beer readily available. As far as beer goes most notable would be as

I went to the following:The Church- DIPA was stellar. Luckily I'm not Catholic. Hofbrauhaus- it
wasn't on the suggested list but I felt compelled to visit as it wasn't to far from Fat Heads.
