    Give it an extended cold fermentation for 3-4 weeks in primary then proceed to laagering. I
    have never incorporated a diacytel rest. If you give the yeast longer time to work at
    fermentation temperatu...

    I am preparing to brew my first Oktoberfest early July and had a question about fermentation
    and diacetly rests. My plan was post boil to cool down the wort and my WLP833 yeast starter to
    50 degrees i...

  • Posted in thread: Belle Saison - Bubblegum and Banana (Questions) on 06-21-2016 at 02:04 PM
    +1 on everyone's comments in regards to the no banana and bubblegum flavor. This yeast will
    leave you with some slight funk, spice, and hint of lemon. I brewed a Mosaic hopped saison with
    this yeast t...

  • Posted in thread: RIP stuck fermentation - Pitch US05 or WLP001? on 06-17-2016 at 03:17 PM
    ya didnt do anything. but i think its because i used too much roasted barley that left allot of
    unfermentables. I just kegged a new version that I brewed using US05 yeast. SG was 1.100 and
    ended at 1....

    If you trim them I think it will impact your yield negatively since the top of the plant
    produces the most. Maybe next year consider like a criss cross trellis, cause u may have no
    choice but to trim ...

    You definitely want to keep them off the power lines. If possible, you should run more line in
    a horizontal direction not downward so they can continue to grow in length.What if I trim them?
    Don't rea...

    My 2nd year Chinook plant now has 2 bines that are about 1.5 feet past the top of my trellis
    and are getting close to the overhanging powerlines. Should I trim the top off of the bine or
    should I run ...

    Why are you mashing so high at 175 degrees? Anything over 170 will kill/stop enzymatic activity
    for converting your starches. if you are doing a single infusion I would mash at 148 nice and
    dry finish...

    I agree with you on the sweetness. Lagunitas has said they mash their IPA at 160F, I've heard
    other brews too. It's part of their process/recipe and seems to work pretty great. I think your
    beer will ...

    You're fine. You may have a little high FG, slightly sweeter, but you may like the extra body.
    In the first 15 minutes or so a lot is happening, but the complete grain probably hadn't
    reached 162F yet...
