    Ooops, I meant S-05, that was a typo!I saw Omaha on your location, I was there on business and
    we went to Upstream and the Farnam (?) brewery/pub. Both had good offerings!My bad, too.
    Figured you mean...

    PetVet, thanks for the reply. Given your setup, I can see why. I'm still on the bucket brigade,
    no kegs, and have stopped transferring to a secondary. I just keep it in the 5 gal bucket and
    try to col...

    Just wondering, why do you transfer to a secondary? Why not dry hop in the primary? And do you
    wait until the 14th day because you haven't quite hit your FG?Visible fermentation stops for me
    around 4-...

    You should be good. Tomorrow, it'll be fermenting like a mad man. I know how you feel. Lag time
    always gets me tweaky. 05 is great. It should slow in about 4 days but, I like to let it clean
    up all th...

    I use US-05 a lot and I have to say it can take a bit to kick off as I ferment it at 62-65F.
    One packet should be plenty for a 1.055 beer. Just a question: what temp did you pitch at? If
    it was too wa...

    Looks like yeast rafts to me. I think you're fine. If you really wanted to try to clean it up,
    cold crash it for a few days. It'll drop what it can out of suspension. Just take a little
    trub/yeast whe...

    I think you're fine. The sooner you get fermentation going, the better. I'd chill out, wait a
    couple weeks, transfer to secondary and taste it. I've been there and fretted until I got a
    sample of it a...

    I just re-brewed my all-Galaxy DIPA today. I really enjoy this hop. It seems the more I use in
    a beer, the more citrus, passion fruit and pineapple come out and the bitterness remains
    pleasant. This t...
