Posted in thread: wyeast 1272 help. to pitch more or not? on 09-08-2014 at 10:07 PM
I wouldn't expect it to go lower than 1.015, and with that much roast malt probably a bit
higher. 70F ferm temps should be fine with 1272 (even a touch high), so I'd expect it to finish
fine. I'd try ...

What yeast did you use? In my experience 3711 produces a nice saison that, while finishing dry,

nice and ba...
Posted in thread: Any feedback on the Captain Crush Grain Mill? on 09-02-2014 at 03:59 AM
For those folks trying to choose between the Captain Crush and the MM3 - my advice would be to
purchase the MM2. I truly believe that the complexity inherent to the 3-roller mill is not

WLP410 used to be my favorite for wits, though Forbidden Fruit has been treating me right with
great flavor, solid ferments, and quick starts. Might be my new favorite!

I haven't added pumpkin to my pumpkin beers in years - haven't really noticed a difference and

I've only got a handful of results so far, but for me Bru'nwater has averages around .2 lower
than my measured on pH while the EZ water spreadsheet has averaged .2 higher than measured. The
Posted in thread: RO water sources on 08-19-2014 at 08:30 PM
I just bought an RO system a few years ago. I can make RO water for around 4/5ths of a cent per

drink RO ...
