Posted in thread: Wyeast or White Labs? New to liquid yeast on 04-11-2012 at 07:08 PM
I prefer to use the Wyeast smack packs, personally. Those complaining about having to smack it
and wait are kind of missing the point. You don't *have* to smack it if you don't want. It's

Thanks for the responses! I'm kind of on the fence about it, leaning towards splitting it
still. The fact that fermentation will kick back up again producing more CO2 will probably make
it OK - I'm wi...

I have a question regarding splitting a batch that I'm hoping someone could answer. Here's the
deal...I'm making an extract wheat beer for the summer, and was planning on racking it to two
Posted in thread: Raspberry Wheat Recipe feedback? on 04-03-2012 at 06:29 PM
Based on research in the large amount of similar threads and feedback here, I've decided to

Looking to try making my first wheat beer for the summer. Since I've yet to make a wheat (I

Raspberry Wheat so...

Welcome to a fellow O'Fallon resident! I'm here too! Been thinking of going down to the Garage

I don't quite want it to be an IPA, though. I'd be totally happy if it turned out to be a
decent regular-ish pale ale. Since I'm on a budget, I'm only gonna order what I need to get the

Hmmm... thinking of tweaking it and using the Wyeast American Ale II (1272) instead. Yay

I've got some leftover LME, steeping grains and hops, and was thinking of just throwing them
