    Does paying as a 'gift' allow refunds for item not received?

    Nothing?I guess I may have to try a split batch with 2007 or similar and report back, if
    nothing else.

    My experiences with this yeast have been good, but I think my attenuation has ranged from about
    65 to 70 percent - it is generally low-attenuating.I think your ferment is not stuck, but
    actually "done...

    I am wondering if anyone has tried this yeast, and how it would compare to wyeast, whitelabs,
    or dry lager yeasts Haven't seen any substantive reviews to date. Thanks in advance.

    I just purchased some generic home-center 3/16 vinyl tubing for my soon-to be running kegging

    malt.I guess...

    Wilserbrewer,Thanks! For now, I am a stovetop brewer. If I ever migrate to a garage or similar,
    I think I will go the heatstick-route.

    In regard to the short, high temp mashing, I haven't done it myself (yet), but I have heard of
    several brewers practicing this technique, or a variation of it.Some reading on the topic: am

    I am now thinking of brewing a mild using Orfy's or similar recipe, mashing at 158 for 15-20
    minutes, and using nottingham.I think that will help make for a quick brew day-I am always up
    for time savi...

    Thanks, everyone. I think for now, anyway, I will use the low-tech method:turn on burner or
    element 1 hour ahead of time, if it is at 180, I will just add cold water or ice cubes, as
    necessary. (thank...
