    This actually turned out to be my favorite batch so far. The hops combo is very refreshing. The
    hefe character is minimal but I'm planning on rebrewing this all grain in a couple weeks.
    Unfortunately ...

    Sorry to revive a zombie thread, but here is my experience with T-58, in case anyone thinks
    about using it in the future. T-58 is my favorite yeast. If used properly you can make a good,
    if not great,...

    I've been trying to wrap my head around this for the past few hours (mostly because it is an
    interesting problem) and I have come up with the following conjectures with the tests for
    potential solutio...

    The main point I'd like to emphasize is that you are doing yourself and your beer a disservice
    by pitching on the entire yeast cake. My recommendation would be to, at the very least, toss
    3/4 of the y...

    The manufacturers of the yeast put an adequate amount of nutrient in their packages for one
    brew. The second one is on you. The yeast need more than just maltose to thrive. I am however
    surprised by t...

    For FG are you using a hydrometer or refractometer?Hydrometer - I should say it did occur to me
    for a sec that my hydro might be faulty but it appears 100% reliable on all the first
    generation batches...

    Do you use a yeast nutrient when you repitch?hmmm thats an interesting point. The answer is no
    I dont, only coz I figure what I have is a billion billion cells that have recently proved
    themselves in ...

    Brudders and SistazI am being suddenly yet consistently and oxymoronically plagued with stuck
    fermentations on batchs of beer I brew on yeast cakes. The operative word here is consistently
    - down to t...

    My stout just tastes way too sweet. But yes, it didn't flocculate like I expected it to, even
    after 3 weeks in primary.ok thanks. then its case closed as far as I'm concerned. Death to

    I had similar results with a chocolate stout I brewed a few weeks ago using that yeast. Mashed
    at 155F. Started at 1.066, "finished" three days later at 1.030 and stayed there for a week
    until I bumpe...
