    Do the rules definitely require the recipe? Some competition software programs have a recipe
    detail part of it, but they are not always required. However, if the comp is one where the Best
    of Show win...

    Did you make starters or just pitch the smack pack? With your OG for both, while a smack pack
    will work, it's really not enough yeast. Using YeastCalc calculator, assuming 5 gallon
    batches...the 1.048...

    Other question: why does 3 gallon in a 3 gallon fermenter require less yeast than 3 gallons
    divided into 3 1 gallon fermenters?It doesn't. Again using Mr. Malty and selecting hybrid (not

    So lager yeast but fermented at ale temps...first off pitching at 80F was way to high for that
    yeast. You would have been better off pitching at 60. And you definitely did not have enough
    yeast as a h...

    You could enter it in both just to see what the judges say if you wanted to pay for the two
    entry fees. Otherwise, I would say enter it as an Oatmeal Stout. Is the comp using the 2008
    guidelines or 20...

    Take a gravity reading two days in a row and see if there is any change. Most likely it's just
    CO2 venting through the airlock at this point. At those high temps, even at 74F, fermentation
    probably co...

  • Posted in thread: How many gallons of homebrew in 2015? on 10-22-2015 at 01:55 PM

    Store at room temp, the yeast that is left will not wake up and eat the sugar at cold temps and
    your bottles would not carbonate.
