    I found some stuff at my local HBS that says "Glycerine, To mellow and smooth out wines". Is

  • Posted in thread: Not enough glycerine...frozen yeast bank on 06-27-2013 at 05:08 PM
    I have been trying to build up a frozen yeast bank but have become a bit discouraged and
    concerned now that I am trying to actually use my frozen yeast. I have added about 30% glycerol
    to each vial an...

    I froze some yeast a few months ago with about 20% glycerin per vial but I now notice that ice
    crystals have formed in some of the vials. Should I still try to use these or toss them?

    Great, thread! I admit I haven't made it through every page, but could someone explain why I
    need to use a candy thermometer rather than a regular digital cooking thermometer (I use a

    Just tasted an 8 month old Oud Bruin that's been on a single smack pack of Roselare in the
    primary, and it was tart, funky, beautiful. No reason to secondary, IMO. Good luck!I'm also
    going to re pitch...

    Thanks for all of the replies! I think I will try the Jack Daniels chips first due to
    availability and cost, and then try the staves linked above if I'm not happy with the results.

    Is there a way to brew a beer that has all the taste and character of a bourbon barrel aged

    in bourbon, a...

    I brewed this recipe back in August and it is tasting very good now. My efficiency was way low
