  • Posted in thread: Pitched onto a Yeast Cake....and Nothing... on 02-06-2017 at 02:46 PM
    Wow thanks guys...just learned something. I did add a healthy dose of yeast nutrients to the
    wort. If nothing special is happening when I get home from work ~24 hours after pitching, I
    will give it a ...

    I just transferred a batch of Imperial Graff to the secondary. The OG was 1.080 and I figured
    I'd brew another batch and pitch it right onto the yeast cake.The first batch was on in a
    primary for 4 we...

    So I've got an update. I don't think it was infected.The aroma was normal and no bad tastes. It
    finished at 1.000 so it was pretty tart, almost as tart as strait apple cider instead of
    graff.The other...

    So if its a lacto infection.....all that does is add a sour milk taste right?This is my first
    infection and I don't want to dump my beer. If it smell okay and tastes okay its okay right? We
    will see.....

    So do I have a cider infused version of Anthrax growing in there or just a happy protective
    layer made by yeast?I had an aggressive fermentation leading to my blow off tube being blown
    off. So the car...

    I so brewed some Graff late September and life and kids got in the way, so I haven't had a
    chance to bottle it until recently. Its been sitting on the yeast cake for almost three months
    (whoops).There...

  • Posted in thread: Combining Different Yeast Strains? on 09-20-2016 at 01:43 PM
    As the title suggests, I have a question about the potential benefits or problems of combining
    yeast strains. I am brewing a Graff/Apfelwein hybrid and have an idea. To 5 gallons of fresh
    pressed cide...

    I might have saved this one from becoming Vodka. So 12 hours after pitching, the wort was 79
    degrees. I threw a wet towel on it and pointed a fan on it and went to work.When I got home
    last night the ...

    Yeah I'm kind of bummed. I was able to score some local fresh pressed, unpasteurized cider
    ($$$$) and would be a bit upset if I didn't end up with good results.Fermentation is just
    getting underway so...

  • Posted in thread: Graff - High Fermentation Temp on 09-19-2016 at 03:16 PM
    So I've taken some time off from brewing as two kids have distracted me a little bit. Yesterday
    I shook the cobwebs off and decided to brew a batch of Graff.The temp in the house was 68
    degrees when I...
