    Are you sure it's not just a layer of broken up hop particles? Looks ok from the pic. Is it dry
    and fibrous like bread mold or still wet on the surface?

    Any donut shop will have loads of them used for icing.

    I put the vial in a glass of lukewarm water to thaw just before pitching to the starter. I make
    a stock canned solution of 45% glycerine and pressure cook it. Then add 3 ml of that to 10ml of
    slurry w...

    To comment on lshaner's post about terminal density, I'll routinely do cell counts for finished

    and add slur...

    Healthier, larger pitches will generally finish within a day or 2 depending on a ton of
    factors. The right combo will get you to 15 hours. High ferm temp, low gravity, simple sugars.
    Normal? Not reall...

    You could do a kolsch or other pseudo-lager, just to be safe, that's a pretty high temp for
    most lagers. How low can it go? Maybe find a setting a little lower that would be more
