    I can take or leave most pumpkin-spice beers. However, the one I really like every year is
    Shipyard Pumpkinhead. One place I went to last week served it in a pint glass with cinnamon
    sugar around the ...

  • Posted in thread: STC-1000 Temp Controller - Noobie question on 09-10-2014 at 01:16 PM
    Do you have the temp probe in a thermowell in a fermenter or pressed to the side of a
    fermenter/keg and insulated with foam, or is the probe hanging freely in the freezer? The
    ambient temp will over a...

  • Posted in thread: STC-1000 Temp Controller - Noobie question on 09-09-2014 at 02:55 PM
    I use an old heating pad wrapped around about half the bucket. The temp probe is on the other
    side of the bucket. Both are held on by 2 bungee cords that are wrapped around the entire
    bucket. The temp...

  • Posted in thread: How do you control fermentation temps? on 09-08-2014 at 08:06 PM
    I have a $25 chest freezer that I bought off Craigslist. I also have a $19 STC-1000 temp
    controller. The STC-1000 is plugged into a GFCI outlet in my basement. The chest freezer is
    plugged into the 'c...

    The reason I am considering US05 is that I have a Cream Ale that is done and I plan on
    harvesting the yeast. One pint will go in the fridge, one pint may be used to finish the 3724
    Saison.Looks like n...

    i have been emailing with a tech at wyeast, and they wrote to me:"The only trick we know so far
    to get 3724 to finish w/o stalling is running it at 90oF from the start."Since this is my first
    saison i...

    Instead of US05, consider wyeast 3711. It attenuates like crazy and a lot of brewers, including
    me, really like the strain.The reason I am considering US05 is that I have a Cream Ale that is
    done and ...

    5 weeks? Pitch at 90F? Sorry, but you're doing it all wrong.This yeast can be done at 1.003 -
    1.006 in 6-7 days if treated right, and without all of the nasty off flavors produced by
    pitching at the e...

    I read up on 3724 and decided to use it anyway for the first time this summer. I pitched on Aug
    3 and raised the temp to 90oF during the course of a day. The OG went from 1.060 to 1.035 in 4
    days. I f...
