Acid washing yeast (not with vinegar) is done by those who are adept at yeast ranching. I've

This is my first attempt at washing yeast. If it's this easy, I can't believe I didn't try this

be nice f...

I wouldn't shake it. This time of year, I can't keep my buckets in the basement as it's too

I have a cider in the carboy that is done fermenting. Can I just rack to a keg with
campden/sorbate for a couple days and then back sweeten with some apple juice concentrate? Or
do I need to rack to a...

I brewed something similar to this a couple days ago and it's in the fermenter now. I didn't
