I also love the people who fuss about InBev but forgo their local shop to buy at online
retailers.I'm in a small town outside of Austin. I could go to AHS and spend around the same (I
spend enough for...

Instead of washing yeast I find it easier to overbuild the starter by 100b cells and save
that.That's what I'd do with liquid, but this was with dry yeast.

Probably, somewhere along the line the yeast became contaminated or mutated for some

For future use, you may have to freeze some slants of those unique strains, and/or plate them

I've noticed small white granules stuck to my sparge water pot. I'm guessing this is from using
OxyClean. This last time I noticed it completely took the oxide layer off!I've been using a

Initially I used nothing but liquid yeasts and saved them once I was schooled. Prior to moving
I dumped them (WLP001, 1272, and WLP320) as I had lost count (well beyond 10), had noticed it

I, too, am perplexed. No way it should have been flat.Hope this next one works well for you!

You did chill those beers for no less than 3 days to force the CO2 into solution, right?
