  • I went all grain because the kits I got from William's did not list any of the ingredients and I wanted more control. I brew once a month. IPA and Stout are my favorite styles but I have started doing a ton of lagers in the last year. --- Sept 5, 2010 First Brew Day --- April 2, 2011 First All Grain --- Dec 20, 2011, Brew Stand Built --- March 20, 2012 Kegging System Built

    does inkbird carry similar device with 1500W/15amp?My Inkbird WiFi is 15A / 1800 watt.I love
    it. But not dual stage (heat or cool only).And doesn't appear to be for sale to the public yet.

  • Posted in thread: Harvested yeast....save or toss? on 10-22-2016 at 01:11 AM
    I think that is floculated yeast and not trub.If it tastes good, you can use it.If it scares
    you don't use it.I can't suggest what to do from the photos.

    Here are some of my thoughts:If the basement is 66-69F the blow off will be massive. If you can
    go cooler, I would... at least for the first few days. You can even split the fermentation into
    two vess...

    oh, and for the positives...1.054 is spot on.and WLP001 is great!

    Citra at 60 is a waste.3 hops in a bittering addition is overkill.Just pick one hop to bitter
    with... Magnum/Warrior/Columbus are good.I guess the Dry hop is fine these days but I like to
    separate my ...

    I quit using US-05 until I could cold crash. Nottingham makes a nice firm yeast cake but it's
    not a clean as US-05.Winter is coming... move the fermenter outside overnight?

    You'll be shocked at what 34/70 lager yeast will do when fermented at 62F.It has even been
    tested at 70F! again at 82F! (yes a lager yeast) I have use it at 70F with good result. (82F
    is insane!)Whe...

    Wow! That is a full carboy!In those situations, I'll use two buckets and pitch one pack of
    US-05 into each.Well, at least you have the blow off ready... you'll need it!
