    If I could get that consistently, I wouldn't necessarily complain. I usually get around 75%
    (with a variation of +/-2%) and am happy with that.

  • Posted in thread: Question about my starter on 04-24-2010 at 06:20 PM
    The point of making a starter is to get yeast to an active and healthy place to quickly start
    an active fermentation, and to get yeast to proper cell count for pitching. A starter only
    increases your ...

    I think if you are looking to get better efficiency, there is a ton of information out there on
    things to try (crush, sparge, mash out temp, grain/water ratio, etc.) but I think, for the
    homebrewer, i...

    I agree with carnevoodoo. Consistency and balance. Both of these go hand in hand because if
    your OG is off by a couple of points, it will throw off your balance and therefore give you a
    very different...

  • Posted in thread: How you guys store your hops?! on 04-20-2010 at 03:03 AM
    As you have probably found out, high temps and air have the greatest negative affect on your
    hops causing them to stale and lose bittering quality quickly. If you don't have a vacuum
    sealer, just do t...

    tmanlua, that's a bummer to have an accident like that as you are prepping for a brew day.
    However, here is how I would answer your questions:1 - I would go get some more yeast. If you
    lost that much,...

  • Posted in thread: Please give me tips on this wheat beer... on 04-09-2010 at 11:01 PM
    Like others have said, you should probably be closer to a 50/50 (pale malt / wheat malt) ratio
    on your grains. Also, 21.7 IBU's is on the upper end of bitterness for this type of beer. Wheat
    beers, as...

  • Posted in thread: Alternative to Wort Aeration on 04-07-2010 at 12:40 AM
    My guess is you will have minimal benefits from filling your fermenter with O2 first over just
    having regular air in there. Considering the cost of an O2 tank, I think just giving it a good
    shake when...

  • Posted in thread: Aeration During fermantation? on 04-04-2010 at 12:01 AM
    Do not aerate your beer during fermentation! A sanitary aeration technique (usually just a good
    shake of your fermenter will do the trick) done just as you are pitching is good, after that it
    is not g...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast 1056 - Yeast Packet Popped Well Before Used - HELP!! on 04-03-2010 at 11:54 PM
    Hopefully you don't have any sanitation issues from the opened yeast packet prior to pitching.
    But if the krausen is there and you have bubbling from your airlock, you should be fine. You
    may have jus...
