    Wow, I just opened the smack pack of 1318 to pitch it into the starter, and the smell is really
    nice. The best I can describe it is like a sweet fruity pebbles kind of smell, but better. I
    can't wait ...

  • Posted in thread: EVOO in a yeast starter? on 02-22-2011 at 02:36 AM
    I've added a drop or two to my yeast slurry the day before pitching, with no bad effects. Hard
    to say if I had a good effect because I don't repeat the same process with the same recipe and
    an accurat...

    skim it off I'm left with a lot of trub a thin amount of yeast krausen—unlike most other
    krausen at this ...

    I've done a few MrBeer kits, and my 1st 5 gal batch has been in my bucket fermenter for a week
    now. I've found that the 5 gal batch brewed in the kitchen (according to my wife) stunk up the
    house too ...

  • Posted in thread: 3 days nothing happening? on 02-21-2011 at 02:01 PM
    Now I did research on here to see if I could find my answer before posting. I looked extensivly
    on and to no avail came across an answer I believe fits. Maybe I missed it in its 25+ pages.
    I did my ...

    The yeast I washed and was storing in my Frig accidentally froze...Once it thaws out is it
    worth keeping around? Thanks...!I froze a washed yeast. I made a starter out of the thawed
    mixture. It kicked...

    (in other words, if this is going to suck, please tell me!)I don't think it will suck, but I
    think it could be simplified and make a great beer.If it was me, I would drop the biscuit
    altogether, and a...
