    You should get the starter ready ASAP, don't worry about how long the yeast has been going. As
    long as they are active and happily churning out beer your fermentation will be all the better
    for it.Tha...

    Just make sure it is pure calcium sulfate. If there are any other ingredients listed, I
    wouldn't use it.

    In my opinion it is best to start with distilled water an build your water profile up. Tap
    water contains chlorine that can produce some off flavors and negative chemical reactions that
    you don't want...

    Couple things: You could get centennial but not cascade?!?!?!? Centennial around here is about

    With respect to H20, the best things is to have R.O. water to start adding the minerals as
    needed. Especially if you are unfamiliar with your H20 chemistry. I use 5.2 stabilizer and
    Gypsum (~0.5 table...

    Just brewed the hobgoblin clone today, Had to remove some hops because I didn't have access to
    them. I used Centennial instead of Cascade. It is now in the fermenter after brewing, aerating
    and pitchi...

    What are your hydrometer readings? I have had fermentation finish in 4 days, of coarse that is
    with regular beer, but I wouldn't be concerned with a two-week fermentation cycle.

    I brewed a Huge pumpkin ale over the weekend and I made a 1L starter for it, using a 1.040
    starter SG. The pumpkin ale came in at a whopping 1.104. I am now afraid that my starter was
    not big enough. ...

    The 900 ml starter isn't big enough. But don't worry, 900 ml is better than nothing. To help
    the yeast try and pitch the starter when it is at high krausen. You should be okay. Try and
    find something ...
