    will this TSP work?You don't want to use actual TSP (Tri-Sodium Phosphate), you want Red Devil
    TSP-90 which isn't actually TSP in the chemical sense, it's Sodium Metasilicate. Easy to find
    on Amazon o...

    Hey buddy - If you pitched at 90 and got the wort down to 65 within a few hours you shouldn't
    have any problems. As for the yeast sticking to the side, just slosh the wort around to get the
    stuck yeas...

  • Posted in thread: Advise on WLP670 Saison I brewed on 02-23-2016 at 08:33 PM
    FYI - I just kegged it up on 2/14/2016. I left for 9 months in primary and the beer is
    fantastic. I think the funk is quite subtle for the reason I listed in my original post, I
    think it would have be...

    For the camp that thinks a hydrometer poses a greater infection risk than a wine thief or
    baster, what is your logic behind this? Personally, I don't take hydrometer readings in the
    vessel, but I don'...

    AKA a 200 gallons per household limit. In Alabama the pertinent section of the code is:"The
    aggregate amount of the beer, mead, cider, and table wine permitted to be produced under this
    act, with resp...

    I've been using poor man PBW (3 parts oxiclean 1 part TSP-90) for years now to clean my PET
    carboys. I have 2 Better Bottle brand and 4 Mid-west/Northernbrewer brand (Big Bubbler)
    carboys. One of the ...

  • Posted in thread: How clear should a saison be? on 10-15-2015 at 03:14 PM
    All comes down to your process and ingredients. You gave very little information. Typically, I
    get clear saisons, but I don't use a ton of high protein malt like wheat, rye, oat. If you use
    enough whe...

    I with the don't worry about it and toss in with dry hop addition camp. I don't think are you
    going to get what you need out of a mini-brew or starter or whatever you were thinking of. I
    brew my own I...

  • Posted in thread: 1st time brewer ... Worried about fermentation temps in hot climate? on 10-12-2015 at 09:41 PM
    :off:I think everyone's first beer kit should come with Lallemands Belle Saison. So versatile
    and tolerant to temps.

    Temp control should be #1. If you cannot keep it the yeast in the happy temp zone, I would not
    brew. If you have a brew store near by, pick up some saison yeast,like mentioned above, and
    maybe swap ou...
