    Can't wait to try this! I have 2 lbs of Simcoe in the freezer that was just waiting for the
    perfect recipe, and I think I found it. The only difference I will make is the yeast. I have 2
    packs of Giga...

  • Posted in thread: Cell Count of White Labs Brett vials? on 04-19-2015 at 12:05 AM
    I talked to the WL people while researching the book. There is a range depending on cell size,
    but under 3 billion for the pure-strain Brett vials (35 ml at 50-80 million cells/ml - 1.8-2.7
    billion ce...

  • Posted in thread: anyone ever use gigayeast Vermont IPA yeast? on 03-30-2015 at 07:26 PM
    From what I've read about it, this yeast has a pretty wide temp range. Apparently it can start
    to throw some Belgian flavors above 70 and the peach starts to get muted in the low 60s. I let
    mine go in...

    and I always use 100% reverse osmosis water and build the profile (my municipal water switches

    and I have a TDS meter I regularly keep calibrated with 342ppm solution, and 1,000ppm solution,

    Bottled an Imperial IP on 11/29/14. Ended up with an ABV of 9.1%. Tasted fantastic at bottling
    time (albeit flat and warm...to be expected). Been checking them intermittently for
    conditioning and as r...

    Well that might explain why they will post my negative review of the product. I noticed that
    Midwest also carries prime dose.....are they also part of the development?No idea. I didn't ask
    if any othe...

    EDIT:I reached out to Northern Brewer about it, and they told me that Prime Dose is actually a
    product they developed. So, if you have issues with Prime Dose not dissolving, I would reach
