    Last season I made my first attempt at yeast harvesting. I didn't want to mess with separating
    the yeast from trub after fermentation so my process was to make an extra large starter. After
    the starte...

  • Posted in thread: Looking for a good first lager to brew! on 07-30-2013 at 02:29 AM
    So I recently decided I needed to gain better control of my fermentation temps than a swamp
    cooler allowed so I took the plunge and bought a 5cf GE chest freezer and a Johnson A419
    digital controller....

    Glad to hear it! Yeah I wish mine didn't have the bump either, but it was an impulse buy. It

    Well I gave in and bought a 5cf GE chest freezer from Home Depot today. I used some of their
    buckets to see how the fit was. A bucket will fit easily in the lower portion, but it's
    probably gonna be t...

    Hey guys,Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I want to control my ferm temps better

    +10(or whatever on the oxiclean free)I soak in a bucket overnight and ~90% of bottles' labels
    fall right off and the glue completely dissolves. Rinse with hot water and you're done.For the

    This is the chart from Palmer's book which I find extremely useful. It is important to adjust
    for beer temp to hit your desired carbonation level. To use the chart draw a line or hold a
    straight edge ...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast options for warmer summer-time brewing on 07-12-2013 at 07:51 PM
    FWIW I just bottled a batch of pale ale using Nottingham yeast. My fermentation temps were
    between 68-70 using a swamp cooler and I pitched warm at 75 degrees. Right out of the fermenter
