    There's an ideal pitching rate. Check out mrmalty.com for more info on that. A good rule is
    that for the right flavor and fermentation you want the yeast to reproduce 4 to 5 times. If you
    pitch very l...

    There are conflicting reports that not rehydrating can reduce viability by 50%. Reduced
    pitching can increase fermentation time, reduce attenuation, and take longer for by products to
    be cleaned up. I...

  • Posted in thread: So...How Many Make It? on 03-03-2013 at 07:40 PM
    I too am lucky to have a huge pipeline so patience isn't too hard. Generally I'll bottle up a
    12 pack in 11.2 oz bottles. Six of these are reserved for potential comp entries. The other six
    are for ea...

  • Posted in thread: Comet hops available? on 03-01-2013 at 02:50 PM
    A new local place called apocalypse brew works. It came out good, but does have a hint of the
    onioniness I'm picking up in a lit of this years crop though.

  • Posted in thread: Using Sourdough starter as yeast. Is it possible? on 03-01-2013 at 02:47 PM
    It was something like 5# 2 row and 5# dry bread. I'd buy rustic breads and kept about a third
    of each loaf in the freezer until I was ready to brew. Added around 10 ibus with tet and
    pitched the start...

  • Posted in thread: Comet hops available? on 02-28-2013 at 04:41 AM
    Seems like very little availability this year. They've become one of my favorite hops, tons of
    grapefruit, and I feel lucky that I got even a pound this year. Did an all comet IPA at a local
    brewery a...

    I have 17 fermenters. Generally 10 to 13 are rotated for sour aging. The rest go back and forth
    between "cleanish" saisons, IPAs, or other quick turn around whims.

    I just happened to bottle a batch like this yesterday. Brewed a kvass/beer and fermented with a
    homemade sourdough starter. The starter was made from raw flour and uncrushed grain. Was going
    to do a s...

    Cotton hop bags are like fiddy cent, stockings just don't seem worth it.

  • Posted in thread: All Brett B IPA on 02-14-2013 at 01:39 PM
    The only adjustments I make are based off where I expect the brett to finish vs standard ale
    yeast. Trois is my standard brett for ipa and it tends to finish at one to two plato, so I
    alter OG and hop...
