I personally wouldn't do it that way. But I'm not you and vice versa. :DI've always pureed them
in a pot with a hand blender and heated that up to 180ºF for 10 minutes. That pasteurizes

Yes, mutated or infected. No, not over pitched.I do this all the time with the same yeast and
have had success for several years and several consecutive generations of yeast cakes. (Not

I would leave your hops in the bag in the wort during chilling. Your final strike is only

I wouldn't over think it. I don't think you can ever go wrong showing up for an interview in a
suit. It certainly isn't appropriate wear for the day to day in a brewing gig but it sure is a
sign of re...
Posted in thread: Us-05 yeast cake question on 06-04-2013 at 07:22 PM

The simple answer to this is to just brew a batch with all tap water and see what you think.
You can get water reports and analysis and read and measure and keep going with that and still

hops to indic...
