Using hydrometer, shows 1.000 in water.Might be correct, the newly pitched us 0-5 activated
with yeast nutrient did nothing, 1.028 as of today.Maybe worth give it a last shot with
WLP099?You are welco...

I do not know my water report, I also don't have a PH meter. This is definitely my top two
priorities as funds become available. I am brewing a batch in the morning that I will
supplement 1# of 2-row ...

Is there an ideal temperature to keep the starter? My ambient temperature is at 29c. Would
making a starter at that temp be unadvisable?That's really high. I prefer my starters to be in
the 20-22C ter...

I believe the problem was serious underpitching.It started out pretty vigorously, though.I've

Posted in thread: To drink while brewing or not to drink.. That is the question on 10-31-2014 at 11:31 PM
Since most of my brewdays start at 6 AM, and a good portion of them are double brew days, I
usually do not drink while brewing.
