    I just broke my hydrometer.Cleaning up the brewery and wasn't paying attention too much. Turned

    An update. I have taken a third way, choosing neither dilution nor blending. After reading
    Michael Tonsmeire's article, "Mashing for Sour Beers" in the May/June 2014 issue of Zymurgy, I
    decided to int...

    A year ago this week I brewed a barleywine, using Wyeast 9097 Old Ale Blend. The OG was 1.122
    (yeah, I was going for glory here). I wanted a very full bodied mouthfeel so I chose to mash at

    I've been using WLP028 for my Irish Red recipe for several brews now and always have been very

    Last summer I brewed two beers, one with Lambic Blend, the other with Roselare, about three
    weeks apart. They're now about 7 months old and tonight was the first sampling. The Roselare
    was INCREDIBLE ...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast 3278 Extra long primary fermentation on 03-04-2013 at 04:20 PM
    I decided not to intervene and let it ferment out, whatever the source, yeast or bacterial. The
    bubbles eventually stopped and I moved it to the cellar for storage, where it's been since and
    will rema...

    I'm in the same situation, two years later. After three weeks, my gravity is at 1.038. I've
    been holding at about 62-64 degrees but have now brought it upstairs where it's closer to a
    constant 68-70, ...
