  • Posted in thread: Few questions regarding yeast starter on 03-17-2012 at 04:35 AM
    I believe the general consensus around here and just about everywhere is to make a starter with
    a starting gravity of around 1.040. However, according to info on my LHBS website (and a couple
    other so...

    Their Simplicity syrup is great in Tripels and Saisons. Interesting info here, i had a
    discussion (regarding light belgian candi rocks and the light belgian candi syrup) with the
    owner of my LHBS own...

    I have used both and they both are good, but I give the edge to the D-180. Better flavor and it
    seems to ferment down a couple of points better. order enoughh to make the shipping worth it.

    I was wondering if anyone has had experience using both brands of candi syrup. I have found a
    couple recipes that include several pounds D180, however, my LHBS only carries the D2 SRM 160
    (I understan...

    Alright guys, thanks for your input. Yeah, $50 is quite steep but i have been wanting to try
    this beer for many years and i guess i am willing to pay it just to try one of the greatest
    beers in the wo...

    I recently met someone who went to Belgium in 2004 and visited Westvleteren Brewery and bought
    a case of the famed Westvleteren 12. He says the beer was bottled in 2003 and he has 7 beers
    left from th...

    hydrometer so i dont have a current reading, going to the brewshop today to get a new
    hydrometer to take a curr...

    All you have to do is pinch the hose where it connects to the siphon when you begin siphoning.
    This will eliminate the air pockets. Your beer is still good with the bubbles during siphoning,
    though. p...

    I'm thinking that worse case, the added air might add fuel to the yeast to use because I'm not
    sure you are done fermenting...try repitching the yeast. This way it will finish and use up the
    oxygen. Y...
