I think your good. I currently have four 1 gallon jugs of APA going in my basement. Ambient
temp is 64-65 and the temp strip on my jug reads 66-67. I don't expect a 1 gallon jug to raise
the temp like...

I would get a lab grade spirit filled thermometer (not mercury). They are accurate and super
cheap, like $5. You should calibrate any other thermometer you buy to this one. They are
basically the ones...

Your assumptions are correct and don't rack to secondary until primary has finished. You will
know when primary is complete by taking gravity readings over a few days with no change. Like

I'm not sure what yeast strain you are using but listen to the previous posts. Your ambient
temp should be in the low to mid 60's as the temperature in the carboy can be anywhere from 5
to 7 degrees w...

We don't brew commercially. That is the plan, someday, although it is probably the hopes of
many home brewers. We just really enjoy brewing and love talking about beer and brewing. We are

Agree with Caldor. If you washed enough then pitch it. 1 mason jar didn't seem like enough but
2 of that size should do it.
Posted in thread: Yeast starter calculators- OG not an issue? on 02-16-2013 at 08:49 PM
I might not made myself clear on my post. The amount of food is important for yeast growth but
there are other factors that are just as important. If a 1.5L starter is required then pitching
into a 1....

That is a good amount of yeast but I would be concerned with viability and stress levels. A
half gallon is almost 2L so I would probably use 2 mason jars with the thought that your
viability is lower....
