Feature request: remove/hide/make smaller -- the BrewTarget logo at the top. I have a 10.1 inch
netbook, and that inch-wide strip takes up a lot of real estate, making everything else kinda

I mean it's either infected or it's not. I even had an infected batch and am drinking it now.
Not a big deal is the short.How infected? I haven't heard of a good accidentally infected brew.

After a long brew day I had left my wort in the brew pot in the fermenting fridge to finish
cooling to pitch temp. Pulled it out at 9:30pm and was getting ready to transfer into the
carboy when I saw ...

I want to use up some hops I have in the freezer for this, not sure which to use. I have
Magnum, Saaz, Tettnang, and Target. Tried to use BeerAlchemy to guess on IBUs but not coming

Just bottled mine today and only got to 1.018 FG, but had hit 1.051 OG. I mashed in a pot in
the oven, so I know I hit 154 on the dot for 60 min. Used WLP002. Fermented at around 68 deg.
This was just...

Made this yesterday with some WLP002 I had in the fridge, didn't bother with a starter because
I never have with small batches. (2.5 gallon) Of course this is my first batch to not take off

just out of curiosity, why boil 90 min if using the pilsner, but 60 if not?

Brettwasbtd- I didn't make a starter, no, Mr Malty's yeast calculator said for my 2.5 gallon
batch the one vial was sufficient.Next time I'll just shoot to pitch at my fermenting temp and
see how that...

Thanks Hammy. I've had a couple batches turn out really cidery, probably because of the high
fermenting temps, so I'm really cautious about temps now. :) I set my primary already down to
70F, I'll jus...

Last night i pitched a vial of WLP029 directly into my fermentor, wort was at 72F. The
instructions on the vial say to make sure you are above 70F until the yeast starts to work. The
recipe I'm using ...
