    After a week and a half in the fridge, it did finally flock out.it's as clear as a bell, very
    happy about this washing. I'm still aging the beer, so I won't know how well it flocks out and
    makes clear...

    When 3864 is put on the shelves I pretty much buy the LHBS out of supply. No worries on the
    yeast not dropping out, sometimes it takes a good solid six days for my starters to clear up in
    the fridge. ...

    It finished at 1.012 and tastes rather full of phenols, lots of clove -no banana.I cold crashed
    it down to 44 and was truly amazed at how little yeast was left on the bottom of the fermenter.
    I was ab...

    Still bubbling btw, slowly but surely.Haven't taken a reading yet, but plan to do so at the 2
    week mark -maybe before.

    As an update, I brewed and my O.G. was 1.062. I chilled to around 80, then put it in the carboy
    and let it sit without yeast for 24 hours. A great deal of cold break material fell out, so I
    racked int...

    I appreciate all the feedback. I will likely not brew with this yeast strain in a while;
    Belgians are not typically in my rotation, but I wanted the yeast. I will likely double wash
    it, separate it ou...

    I want to wash and reuse 3864-PC, from Wyeast's Private CollectionThe beer I'm brewing is O.G.
    1.085 and contains 1# corn sugar, hopefully ending at 1.017 = ABV 9%.Wyeast recommends not
    washing yeast ...

    Now hold on there Cowboy. I've been double batch sparging for years and since getting my own
    grain mill, a simple Barley Crusher, I've been getting a consistent 81% efficiency, nothing
    anywhere near a...

    So after I correct the volumes by adding back the 3/4 gallon left in the kettle, it looks like
    I measure my post-boil extraction rate at 87%That's a huge increase over the 60-65% I was
    getting from ba...

  • Posted in thread: Fly Sparging results question on 12-14-2014 at 02:34 PM
    Did you check your reading against a hydrometer? That would be a brewhouse efficiency of 95%,
    and are you sure about your water volumes? That would be 78% eff for 5 gal, which would be more
    likely unl...
