  • Posted in thread: Pitching yeast from fully fermented wort? on 11-30-2007 at 03:37 PM
    I just brewed a nice Witbier and ended up with too much wort. So I let one half gallon of it
    ferment in my yeast starting jug (I couldn't fit it all in my primary).If I want to use the
    same yeast agai...

    I wanna know what in god's name you're brewing that you got to have 8 liters of yeast starter,
    i was just messing around and got 1.212 as the OG of something that would need 8 liters... You
    shouldn't ...

  • Posted in thread: yeast starter size on 07-12-2007 at 09:45 PM
    I used the calculator on to find a good yeast starter size for my brew, and it said
    I needed an 8liter starter.What does that mean? (I know that sounds like a dumb question). Does
    that mea...

    Okay, I'm brewing my dream beer, it's been fermenting for a few days, and I'm an idiot. It's in
    a plastic bucket with an airlock (I've never used a blow off system before but now I know why
    that's a g...

  • Posted in thread: Questions about my first "big" beer on 07-09-2007 at 11:40 PM
    I just tried my first all-grain "big" beer. I ended up with 6.5 gallons of 1.088 wort, which I
    was pretty happy with. This was a bit low, but I ended up with too much wort too, so it's okay
    (I had to ...

  • Posted in thread: hop bits during boil... use a bag? on 07-02-2007 at 05:23 PM
    Whenever I add hops during my boil, I get a surge in the boil and the pot's sides end up coated
    with all the hops. This seems broken because those precious hops aren't still in the beer where
    they bel...

  • Posted in thread: boil vigor on 06-16-2007 at 08:21 PM
    How much does the vigor of the boil matter? What is the effect of a stronger boil?I tend to
    have pretty weak boils because my pot is only 30 quarts. Last night, I cranked the heat up a
    bit more as the...

  • Posted in thread: Hops/chunks in my bottled beer on 05-24-2007 at 03:28 AM
    I popped open a beer today and it started (after a few seconds) to foam/gush. I poured it, and
    everything tasted good, except there was tons of hop chunks in the bottle (enough that I
    actually poured ...

  • Posted in thread: Sugar in a mild on 05-24-2007 at 03:20 AM
    I've heard people talking about using simple sugar in a mild after a hot mash (for mouthfeel).
    What gives? What is this for? Does it make sense? Is this a good way to make a decent mild?
    I've heard it...

    I bet he ferments the fruit separately and then blends them together. He talked specifically
    about how brewers could learn a lot from winemakers, and how winemakers blend to acheive a
    desired taste.Re...
