    What yeast strain is it? My initial thought is to put in the basement to be safe. 65 degree
    ambient temperature will ferment in the high 60 to low 70 range due to the heat released during

  • Posted in thread: Starter from home brewed bottle? on 02-12-2013 at 01:48 AM
    This can absolutely be done if you maintain good sanitation habits. You might need more than a
    few days to properly grow a healthy starter for brewing your next batch. I would consider
    stepping up fro...

  • Posted in thread: Estimated efficiency for higher gravity on 02-10-2013 at 04:44 AM
    I would stick to what you are currently gauging your efficiency on and maybe drop a few points
    if you think you might not achieve it. We are not typically that much lower in efficiency on
    higher gravi...

    How many gallons are you fermenting? I don't think 1214 is that slow of a starter if pitched
    properly. You probably won't create any more yeast with the 1 cup thing so I would just pitch
    it. It doesn'...

  • Posted in thread: Need Some Serious Help on 02-10-2013 at 04:19 AM
    I first want to start by asking what type of IPA are you trying to brew? What is it about your
    IPA that is lacking? Are you not getting the correct bitterness or are you not achieving the
    forward hop ...

  • Posted in thread: suggestions on my first all grain brew??? on 02-10-2013 at 03:37 AM
    Hilarious!!! This grain bill might be perfect your friend although with such a small grain bill
    I'm surprised you are bothering with a 3.5 liter starter. Are you brewing 5 gallons? Was the
    starter gro...

  • Posted in thread: Brewing my first batch, quick question on 02-08-2013 at 03:15 AM
    Agreed in regards to using StarSan in your airlocks. I would also buy a new airlock. They are
    only a few bucks. I would not be concerned with infections as you are pretty far along in
    fermentation, it...

  • Posted in thread: HERMS and Fly Sparging on 01-13-2013 at 08:48 PM
    We recently incorporate a HERMS system into our brewing process and we cut our fly sparging
    time in half with the thought that with the recirculation of the mash tun during Mash Out we
    would still gra...

    Thanks for all of the responses. Just made 2 1.5L starters and will step those up during the
    week. I thought I was on the right track but confirmation and to see how others do it is nice..

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter for 20 gal on 01-02-2013 at 12:48 AM
    Thanks for the responses. It sounds like if I just build 2 normal 5 gallon starters in my 2L
    flasks and put the slurry in a 1 gallon jug, add 500ml or so of starter and crash them, then
    create 2 more ...
