+1 on the Anchor tour. 21A and Rogue are both right in the city.Definitely. I had dinner at
Hopmonk last Saturday in Sebastopol where 5 Anchor brews were paired with 5 dishes. Met the
brewmaster and o...

Looks like my job will be taking me to San Rafael for at least 3 months (starting on Feb 23rd).
I would like some good suggestions on breweries and brewpubs in the area and any good home brew

What was your predicted FG? AG or extract?Brew on :mug:Predicted 1.014. AG. The previous reply
pretty much sums it up. I'm thinking it is a combination of several brew day mistakes. I'm
getting ready ...

66% apparent attenuation (1.062->1.020) is definitely fairly low for that yeast. If you used
just one pack of 2308 for your starter, that's a pretty small starter for a lager that big.
Normally you'd ...

I brewed my 1st lager - a Marzen. OG 1.062. 50F 21 days in primary and a 2 day D- Rest. 1.5 L
starter using Wyeast 2308. Everything looked great until I took a gravity - 1.020. Now what? Is
there any ...

Yeah, I tend to calculate separately for my mash and sparge water, but your way sounds like it
would work just as well. Either way, the same amounts of salts are making their way into the
water. For i...

It's lagering now. But it didn't attenuate well- 1.019. I should have taken a gravity before
racking off primary. Usually 3 weeks gets my beer down to 1.012. Perhaps at 65 deg I should
have given it m...

JLem, Kaewan- good info. It is Wyeast 2565, fermented at 65 deg for two weeks. I pulled the
plug and it's now 55-57 deg. I have nothing but time. Shall I leave it at that for a couple
more weeks or wo...

Okay. I'll let it go another week. It sits at basement temp- 54 degF. If it doesn't settle out
much, I may move it to the keezer for a few more days.

I've not used this yeast before and heard it isn't a flocculant strain. So, I've made a 1.050
batch that appears to be fermented out but there is still about half and inch of kraeusen
sitting on top. ...
