If I was forced into answering the OP based on the stats given (like threatened with not having
beer for a week) I would say you are fine. If in doubt, try a little rousing and raising the
temp for a ...
Posted in thread: Brewed yesterday and want to wash and reuse the yeast for the 1st time, few questions on 06-08-2016 at 01:33 PM
1) Can I still save the yeast if I dry hopped in the primary (used 1 oz of like 7.5% Centennial
I believe) or did I basically screw myself there? (I didn't have an available vessel to
transfer to as a...
Posted in thread: Do different yeasts need different volumes of priming sugar? on 05-30-2016 at 07:20 AM
Would either recipe happen to be near the alcohol tolerance of either strain?No, the highest
ABV of any of the beers was about 6.7% which is way lower than the tolerance of both yeasts.
The batch that...

My guess is that the 530 batch was not completely done when you bottled it.530 is famous for
that. It will start of like crazy and get to the point that you think it is done. Fools you.
You botttle an...

I can't believe the answer to the above question is yes. I am asking it because I am going over
my brew notes and have seen that when i have primed with 6.8 grams/litre of beer with WLP 001
the beer h...

If they do use a different yeast to condition the beer then that is the yeast you will harvest.
So while Didinho makes valid points, you won't be able to create a clone as your yeast is

I bottled last night. The base (before potion) beer tasted awesome and the final beer tasted
very good too - but i couldn't pick up any ginger. This is despite adding about 60g to the
potion after a f...

I have done two batches where I split it into 2 fermenters and used S04 and S05 - one was an
american amber ale, the other an american brown ale - there was a slight difference in the hops
(the s04 su...

Thoughts? I'll let you all know how this turns out. In a perfect brew, this should turn out as
a light, beery and more dry Hollows and Fentimans clone (I find crabbies far too sweet).With
that amount ...
Posted in thread: Cold crash and bottle.. couple questions on 05-05-2016 at 06:25 AM
One other thing - I used to mix the priming sugar with 125ml water because I thought less
