    Moved mine into the garage in my ferment chamber. That stuff makes a smell! Is that due to the
    lack of nutrient? Is that also why this yeast was used for it since it works well without
    nutrients?Yup, ...

  • Posted in thread: Newbie looking to break more into wine-making - requesting kits to avoid, and tips! on 10-03-2016 at 04:57 PM
    Hey everyone!So, I have been making beer, meads and ciders for a few years now - close to 10.
    However, I had some personal revelations recently, and want to learn a lot more about
    traditional wine-mak...

    Most likely any concentrate will be bug free. The juice going into it was most likely
    pasteurized, and the sugar/acid level in the concentrate is probably too high for any
    bacteria/spores to survive.O...

    Has anyone tried this with apple cider? I have a local orchard I can get fresh pressed
    unpasteurized cider from in a few weeks.There really isn't any reason you couldn't use it.You
    can either pasteuri...

    After 2 years of brewing hiatus, I decided to get back in the game with this recipe!I basically
    stuck to the recipe as much as possible, with some very minor tweaks. I am making a cheapo
    batch first, ...

  • Posted in thread: How do you read Lalvin yeast dates? on 09-09-2013 at 02:08 PM
    Hm, I'm trying to find out when it was packaged so I can calculate viability, so "best by"
    doesn't really help :/

  • Posted in thread: Glass carboys, real talk. on 09-08-2013 at 02:05 AM
    I personally like glass. It's what I've found in the area for cheap, and it works just fine.
    Can it have problems? Yup, possibly. But so can a gun. I'm not going to get rid of either of
    them because o...

  • Posted in thread: How do you read Lalvin yeast dates? on 09-08-2013 at 01:54 AM
    Hey everyone! I am trying to calculate the viability of a package of Lalvin 71B yeast, and
    unlike most yeast packages it doesn't seem to have a "packaged on" date, only an expiration
    date.Here's the e...

  • Posted in thread: Does brewtoad make anyone else want to shoot themselves in the face? on 09-05-2013 at 02:40 AM
    I am undecided on brewtoad. I used to exclusively use beer calculus. However on some things I
    simply can't trust brewtoad - for instance, an english barleywine recipe shows as 12.7% ABV in
    beersmith, ...

  • Posted in thread: How well do hops survive shipping? on 09-04-2013 at 02:29 AM
    Just curious about this one. Our local HBS seems to never have certain hops in stock, and a
    recipe I'm working on requires several of them. I was considering ordering them online, but
    I've always been...
