  • Posted in thread: How to use the White Labs QC report to get an accurate cell count of your yeast on 12-30-2016 at 04:21 AM
    Thank you, this helps. I use yeastcalculator. WIth the initial cell count from White Labs, I
    can now edit the "Initial Cell Count" variable in YC to more accurately determine my starter

  • Posted in thread: Pils Malt APA on 03-28-2016 at 06:10 PM
    Would a single-step mash around 152F work well for an APA? Or would something along the lines
    of a 20-30 mins rest at 140, then 152 for 45 mins work better?152 would be fine. I don't have
    much experi...

  • Posted in thread: Low Carbed, cold crash questions on 03-28-2016 at 04:37 PM
    Do you recall how much priming sugar you added?I think the yeast remaining after fermentation
    and cold crashing should have been healthy enough to carbonate the beer despite the cooler

    When you say leave the same, do you mean where it is now at 19PSI or where I usually keep my
    ales at 11 PSI?I meant where you usually keep things (11psi). For my current keggings setup, I
    pour everyth...

    I think you have two main options for highly carbonated beers although I could be wrong as I am
    still learning the fine art of kegging.[*]Leave the PSI the same. I would try this first and
    see if you ...

    I think the use of crystal somewhat depends on the end beer the OP is looking for. I originally
    assumed it was an IPA with some Belgian yeast character. In which case I think a small amount
    of crystal...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Dilemma..Pitch both packs or just one? on 03-23-2016 at 07:18 PM
    I use BeerSmith and I also used Mr. Malty for these calculations and they both said I can't get
    to the target amount with the "born on dates" being old. I am brewing the Cottage House Saison
    in the re...

    yeastcalculator.com is your friend.I pretty much always make a starter, although using 3711 you
    might get by without a starter. Also, some people like to underpitch their farmhouse/saison
    style beers ...

  • Posted in thread: Any tips on capping bottles with short collars? on 03-23-2016 at 03:38 PM
    Not that I know of (probably not the answer you are looking for). My wing capper simply does
    not work well with a couple beer bottle types, so I avoid those. I don't have an issue with
    short bottles, ...

  • Posted in thread: Re Using Yeast... on 03-23-2016 at 03:20 PM
    My question is with so many different strains/kinds of yeast, wouldn't I need to harvest as
    many to be re used?Not necessarily. Most yeast strains are more versatile than you would think,
    or than thei...
