  • Posted in thread: How do people use PBW and starsan? on 08-02-2015 at 07:14 PM
    PBW is used for cleaning only. It does not sanitize. I use it to clean kegs, carboys, and
    various parts of my Mash Tun and Boil Kettle. Star Sans is a no rinse sanitizer. It is used
    like us old timers...

    How I have never brewed one of my favorite German beers in 22 years of brewing is beyond me,
    but damn I am already excited to brew this beer. For my first time ever, I will be using a
    Protein rest in ...

    No, you should only be leaving your starters for 24 to 48 hours no matter which method you use.
    There is a given saturation level of yeast cells in a starter for the amount of dissolved
    oxygen, nutrie...

    OK, thanks for the reply. Would it make sense to bring the secondary back up to 50 deg for a
    few days to let it finish?I wouldn't. Let the yeast sleep. You do not have enough yeast in the
    secondary to...

    So, with my recent starter debacle, I have started thinking about MAYBE getting a Stir Plate.
    All I know about a stir plate is that it add very much needed oxygen to the starter. Also, it
    speeds up th...

    An update. I dumped both Flasks about 20 minutes ago in preparation to re-brew 2 more starters.
    This time I have some fresh yeast. :ban: Anywho, I thought some here would like to know that my
    OG dropp...

    I know I'm jumping the gun (brewed these for a wedding in 4 weeks so they need to take haha).
    It was supposed to be more of a question of, if I do have to repitch, do I make a small starter
    to wake th...

    72 hours before you start to get worried. Me, if I had to repitch, I would brew a simple, small
    2 quart starter, and once it is going good, pitch the entire thing into the carboy.

  • Posted in thread: WLP820 Starter Queery on 07-19-2015 at 10:34 PM
    Thursday night, July 16th, I brewed up a 4.50 Liter starter with 450 grams of Extra Light DME,
    twice. One for each carboy. Normal fair for me. I have been brewing for 23 years, and have been
    making ye...
