It started coming to life in the fermenter this PM, but still very slow. I pitched the starter
which was in pretty good looking shape. Thanks for the thoughts!

I've got a German Ale kit that came with Wyeast 1187 Ringwood Ale. I was out of town last week
so I didn't have a chance to make a starter. The pack was also about 6 months old in the fridge

Beer culture has been about getting blasted for a long time now. Maybe that's starting to
change, but only for a subsegment. When I'm in Europe I love being able to get all kinds of
non-alcohol beer a...

Bottled yesterday and got a good chance to test it mixed up from transfering and it measured
1.002 again.The yeast cake was bubbling by the time I got done bottling, but I think that was

Thanks for the feedback!It's on its way to 40 degrees now. It will be there at least until I

Brewed 2 weeks ago. Used a 1.5L starter... it didn't flocculate overnight in the fridge so I
ended up letting it warming up and pitching the entire starter. I got the yeast by mail and it
was quite wa...

It's much easier to let the beer take its time once you have a few batches under your belt and
lots of bottles to drink. My third batch is on Day 15... I haven't taken a gravity reading
yet... and the...

While the CO2 output appeared about the same pace, there are definitely some big differences. I
cracked open the real fermenter today to do a gravity measurement and it has a huge krausen
layer with l...

A week later, I decided to chill one down just to see what I ended up with. They carbonated
pretty well. It probably could have been okay with 5 ounces.Pre-fridge it was crystal clear.
