  • Posted in thread: Making starter out of two older liquid yeast packs on 03-17-2014 at 10:38 PM
    Update: I bumped the temp up in my fermentation room (spare bathroom) to encourage the yeast to
    finish up their business. Visible signs of fermentation have tapered off and the beer is
    cleaning up nic...

    I went ahead and took a gravity reading tonight.Eleven days into fermentation and I'm at 1.021.
    That's definitely higher than my expected FG and as I said, all of the signs of active
    fermentation are ...

    I was thinking about going ahead and grabbing a reading. I'm waiting to dry hop this as well so
    I didn't want to start dry hopping and drive off all of the aroma since it's still blowing air,
    even if ...

    Well, fermentation started quickly so I figured my yeast was in good shape. However, 11 days
    later, I've still got what appears to be active fermentation. Blow off tube is still bubbling
    at 1/sec (whi...

    I stepped it up once. Brewed this weekend and fermentation took off as expected. Blow off tube
    required, and fermentation looks very vigorous. Unfortunately, I have lots of variables in this
    brew, wit...

    Ok, looks like I should probably do a second step. Haven't done that before but looks as simple
    as making a second batch of starter wort and pitching the slurry from the first starter in.
    Shouldn't be...

    So, after making big plans to brew a beer last fall, I've finally gotten around to making my
    starter. My first yeast pack arrived already completely swollen. After pushing back my brew a
    couple of mon...

  • Posted in thread: Mashing with A LOT of flaked wheat on 04-29-2013 at 04:58 PM
    The flaked wheat doesn't have to be milled. Otherwise, a variety of mash varibles may have
    affected your eventual gravity reading. My numbers turned out ok considering I used too much
    water.

    That's basically what I ended up doing. Had a variety of issues today, but I've got yeast in
    wort, so hopefully all will end well.

    I ended up dumping off enough water to clean everything out and get it going again. Almost
    ready to start boil. I think I got a little impatient to start, but it's going again. Great day
    to watch golf...
