    Op: unless you have a major major infestation, i doubt they could eat enough to make a
    noticeable dent in efficiency, but that's a complete assumption. I have a similar situation so
    I'll add on to thi...

    I had this happen and I'm wondering if the batch is still safe to drink or is it a total loss?

  • Posted in thread: Can you patent a beer recipe? on 09-21-2014 at 11:30 PM
    Well, just to put this out there- if a brewer tastes your beer, and loves it, he can just back
    to his brewhouse and duplicate it. It's pretty easy to do, even if the ingredients aren't
    exactly the sam...

    actually "two hots...

  • Posted in thread: Why don't yeast companies just sell liquid yeast packages with higher cell counts? on 02-16-2014 at 08:16 PM
    Seems to me the majority of beers need a yeast starter. Wouldn't this avoid having to make as
    many starters? Maybe they're trying to keep costs down, but I'd be willing to pay more to not

    Many consider 3 weeks at 70 degrees to be the minimum amount of time for bottle conditioning.
