    If you're interested, Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation by Zainasheff and White
    goes into great detail on exactly these kinds of issues.I was just reading about this in the
    Yeast book ac...

  • Posted in thread: Why I secondary - drinking from the bottle on 09-12-2012 at 07:22 PM
    I guess I am the only one who finds drinking from the bottle to be acceptable and
    convenient!Nah, I prefer it too. But that preference is entirely based on a learned behavior,
    fostered over all the ye...

    72-74 is probably a bit high for that yeast. In my uses of it, it seems to like 68 F the best.
    Probably get more esters at the higher temps, but you could get some funky off tastes along
    with them.I t...

    San Diego here, I planted a nugget rhizome in early May, one bine is probably about 15' now,
    with the others varying between 5'-10'. I just noticed what I think are flowers forming on the
    top 10-15' o...

  • Posted in thread: Can you pitch too much yeast? on 07-10-2012 at 10:46 PM
    I think (read, I'm not positive) that if you overpitch on a yeast that provides a lot of flavor
    and aroma to the beer you could see some consequences from doing so. From what I gather most of
    those fl...

  • Posted in thread: after trying a long primary, anyone back to using secondaries? on 06-08-2012 at 08:30 PM
    When I was still pretty new, secondaries were valuable because I always did a kind of **** job
    racking and would get lots of trub. Now that I've done it enough and have my method and
    equipment hashed ...

  • Posted in thread: Does anyone no longer save yeast who once did? on 06-04-2012 at 10:49 PM
    When I first started washing, I was saving every strain, and I had mason jars up they ying yang
    as a result. But I'm single and don't use much fridge space, so it wasn't a big deal.
    Unfortunately I ha...

    Locks are only going to keep honest people honest. If a dishonest person OR a person that's
    brain has not fully developed yet (teenagers) that struggles with right/wrong concepts they are
    nearly worth...

    It's all about education really. If you demystify the idea of a forbidden delight, while
    educating on what binge drinking, DUI, and hard partying can lead to, you'll start them off a
    good bit better t...

    What if we used a Google doc to track what strains that people have available?That was going to
    be my suggestion. A master google doc would be simple, and then leave it to individuals to work
