  • Posted in thread: Aeration question on 02-19-2014 at 01:48 AM
    It would tremendously aerate the wort and help speed up the cold break. From flame out to 70
    degrees takes me about 5-10 minutes with the paint stirrer at high speed. That's also including
    a basic wor...

    Thanks for the reply JB, the tank is new but the regulator is an old perlick regulator that
    came with a kegarator in my dad's house. I do plan on getting a new regulator eventually. But
    does a 5# tank...

    I was wondering how long a 5lb CO2 tank usually lasts. I kegged 5 gallons, forced carbed at
    20psi for 3 days and served at 9psi since mid December. Just recently noticed my regulator is
    down below 5ps...

  • Posted in thread: Severely underpitched lager, can I pitch different strain? on 01-13-2013 at 11:22 PM
    I was wondering myself if I under pitched my oktoberfest last night. I pitched one #2633 smack
    pack at 68 then put in keezer at 50. Sounds like I should have made a starter and pitched it at
    50. Is on...

    This. White Labs are one thing - even though they claim to be good to go for five gallons, I
    tend to make a quart sized starter with White Labs tubes just to get 'em started and active.
    But with Wyeas...

    I'm going to disagree. Just because it has enough yeast to ferment the batch, doesn't mean it's
    the proper amount of yeast to make the best beer. If you pitch a Wyeast smack pack in
    5.5gallons of 1.05...

    Thanks for the responses. I was checking out a brew calculator to figure out how many packs
    needed without a starter and it called for 2 packs. So yeah 2 packs not prepared right but I
    was just happy ...

    I have a question that I'll probably answer when asking it. I know that I have to smack the
    packs to break the activator of nutrients inside and let incubate a few hours before pitching.
    Well I did so...
