    I started it off at 67 for the first 2 days. I bumped it to 69 on Wed and plan on bumping it
    to 71 tomorrow. It is pretty active but I did not need to put a blow-off tube on it. My OG was
    1.070 so ...

    I am going to assemble the starter(s) this evening and brew Sat or Sun. Picked up what I needed
    from my LHS last night. Am curious as to why to cold (66). Does the yeast multiply better at
    low temp?

    After the first debacle, I brewed a small golden ale (1.042 OG) with the Whitle Labs version as
    a starter for another Golden strong. I washed the yeast from the small one and will make 2
    starters from...

    1388 is known to stall, Wyeast even states so on their website. I did a BGSA with an OG of
    1.092 and it stalled at 1.060 after 2 weeks. I aerated and pitched more yeast and it still took
    4 weeks (at 7...

    lined up to brew 10 gallon batches. Open to the public,especially those desiring to enter the
    hobby.

    I ran auto-tune a 2nd time and it did not take nearly as long. The probe is below the element
    so I do need to stir the contents to evenly distribute heat. Not sure if I will do a slow
    rotating mechani...

    Brewing again with this rig today. I ran autotune but not sure it was successful. How long does
    it take to complete it (nothing in the manual). I may have cycled the power to it prior to
    completion. W...

    I will try to get a chance to mess with it in the next day or two. The probe is just slightly
    below the element. I have stirred it up as it is heating to distribute the heat evenly.It is
    probably oper...

    I do not believe I have. Will check into it.

    I have a HLT setup using a Auber Instruments SYL-2352 controlling an SSR and a 5500W element.
    The rig works to some extent but it does not control the temp very well. I was brewing today
    and set the d...
