    It's been in the keg at 35 for about 11 days now. I don't pick up any buttery diacetyl flavors
    but it does taste very green still. I have had a problem with acetaldehyde in two of my first
    three beer...

    None of the other options would I do at 10 days. It is not ready for those. You have at least 3
    weeks before you should be thinking of a final transfer. Even a few days until I would consider
    a second...

    I've had it at 70 for about 10 days now. Gravity is now 1.012 and it tastes and smells pretty
    good. I'm getting a little more optimistic that it will work out. I want to bring it down to
    lager temps ...

    Pitching warm and then cooling down 20+ degrees is like slamming the brakes on the yeast when
    they are struggling to get acclimated to the wort and start doing their thing. Bad practice.For
    lagers, th...

    Just do a nice long rest at like 65 degrees near the end and you should be ok. Will help clean
    up whatever off flavors may have been created by the under pitch.It bubbled since day 6. but
    bubbles in t...

    All my previous brews, non-lagers of course, were going strong in 24 hours despite the lack of
    a starter. I now know the huge difference that the temp makes. I do oxygenate with a 2 micron
    stone and o...

    Just an update. I let it go and on Friday night, 6 days in, it finally started bubbling so I
    decided there was no point in taking another sample at that point. Today, Sunday, we are 8 days
    in and it's...

    Where did I say it was SS? It's actually plastic and relatively inexpensive so I'm not sure why
    you are so amazed with it. Brewpi software is free by the way and I had the hardware lying
    around. If th...

    Here is the chart of the temp over the last couple days.

    Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. I think I've decided to just let it ride and see
    what happens. Still no bubbles in the air lock. I'm hesitant to take too many samples because I
    don't want...
