    It's in a converted chest freezer, snoozing comfortably at 68 degrees.Also.... at risk of
    derailing my own thread... the sonofagun is indeed still bubbling once a minute or so. After
    FIVE WEEKS. I'm u...

    Long story short, I'm brewing with honey for the first time (2.5 lbs. of it along with 7.5 lbs.
    DME in a 6-gallon batch, been 5 weeks now), and wanted to make certain it was fermented out
    before bottl...

    Those tabs you used: Are they just sugar?Did you dose your beer with fresh yeast?I have no idea
    what's in Munton's. I actually don't use them anymore; went back to plain old table sugar just
    because i...

    Yes, they've been stored above 70 degrees. They've been sitting in the corner of my bedroom for
    six months. No, there isn't a lot of yeast sediment, but there is a *little.* I can see it on
    the bottom...

    You need to get the beer as cold as you can (just above freezing). Have the tabs ready ( I
    would freeze them, too). Uncap, throw the tabs in and recap. You'll probably have a boilover,
    but it will be ...

    I laid down a batch of Trippel back in February, and have sampling a bottle a month as a sort
    of special treat to myself. It is really starting to come into its own now -- smooth and rich
    and plummy a...

  • Posted in thread: WLP029 Kolsch Yeast -- no bubbles or krausen after 48 hours on 08-17-2011 at 09:06 PM
    2nd update: Part of the problem was a leaky lid. I spent a whole three bucks and got a new one
    yesterday, sterilized the hell out of everything, and stuck it on... and within a minute the
    waterlock wa...

    Update: Bumped the temp up to 68 last night and just now took a peek. Water in the waterlock
    was at half-mast.... no active bubbling so far as I could see, but there *was* a nice healthy
    krausen. I gu...

    You are supposed to keep your wort at 70-75 until fermentation starts.Didn't know that. Did I
    kill my yeasties....?

    Just got a scratch n' dent chest freezer set up with a digital thermostat, and thought a good
    way to break it in would be with a good cool-fermenting ale. Got the wort cooled, pitched my
    yeast... let ...
