  • Posted in thread: R/O Water too old? on 04-25-2014 at 03:42 PM
    I had planned on brewing a few days back and purchased my RO water for the brew. Unfortunately
    things did not go as planned, and I will be brewing this weekend instead. I assume there's no
    ill effects...

    I purchased a smack pack of Wyeast Czech Pils 2278 and made my 3L starter per usual. I noticed
    that the pack did not fully expand like it usually does, but my LHBS said it was a slow starter
    and would...

    I have 10 foot lines which have worked very well for me in the past (with most kegs). I have a
    collar with the shanks running through it. I keep my keezer at 34F because I lager my pilsners
    in the kee...

    I was wondering if anybody can offer suggestions as to why some of my kegs turn out really
    foamy and others do not. I have a Czech Pilsner on right now that started out foamy, and the
    tap continues to...

    We are in the early stages of figuring out our start-up costs, but the number one goal is to
    keep costs very low during this first stage of business. This endeavor will unfold in multiple
    steps, with ...

    My brother and I are starting up a Kansas City nanobrewery specializing inGerman beers. We have
    developed a logo and some recipes but were in the planning stages of designing the physical

    Well, 60 hours later and there's finally some krausen and activity. I agree that getting the
    rinsed yeast going in a yeast starter would prevent such a sluggish fermentation start. I'm
    just pleased th...

    I rinsed some yeast that had fermented a munich helles and repitched it into a new batch of
    dunkel. The yeast had been in the helles carboy for three weeks when I crash cooled the batch
    to 40 F from 5...

    I'm very interested about the yeast starter and how you say activity is more important than
    number of cells. I brew lagers and have been trained to make 3-4L starters for a 5-gallon
    batch, cool, decan...

  • Posted in thread: Substitute for DME in Starter on 03-31-2011 at 04:48 PM
    Since 3 lbs. of DME costs $17 at my LHBS, I've been looking for a cheaper way to do my yeast
    starters. Last weekend I did a second sparge after I had gathered all my helles wort in the
    brew kettle to ...
