    When my BC quits feeding grain through I momentarily reverse the drill instead of emptying the

    cell count than...

    I grew up in Gunnison but have lived here for the last 20. Thanks for the heads up on the

    I left my s-05 yeast starter to close to the wood stove and my yeast had heat stroke. My

    I could be wrong which i am frequently, but the hydrometer read 1.38. I was reading it at about
    80 degrees but that still would not make that big a difference. I have already pitched yeast
    but I might...

    Just out of curiosity I am wondering what the highest o.g. beer members here have brewed. I
    just overshot my barley wine with a o.g. of 1.380. I am hopeing my s-o5 will work. I did make a
    starter but ...
