  • Posted in thread: Old yeast - Toss or propigate? on 08-30-2015 at 02:26 PM

  • Posted in thread: Adding pumpkin to beer on 08-30-2015 at 03:48 AM
    I got a 10 pound pumpkin, cut it in quarters and baked until it was browning. I scooped out 8

    If you have a stick on fermometer it will be pretty close to the wort temperature if the
    cloth/water is not cooling it.When I used a swamp cooler I used about 8 inches of water and
    rotated ice bottle...

  • Posted in thread: Is my yeast DOA on 08-29-2015 at 02:20 PM
    Yes, I should have mentioned its on a stir plate, but all mine have been on one, hence me being
    concerned when I didnt see any "foam"In my experience, some will, some won't. Get a flashlight
    and get r...

    will want to...
