    Hey Everyone,I'm new to using BeerSmith and am having some trouble setting up a double infusion
    batch sparge. I started with one of the pre-set double infusions and checked off the
    appropriate batch s...

  • Posted in thread: Using yeast cake for second batch of cider? on 10-05-2010 at 01:25 AM
    Sure, you'll probably have a very strong fermentation from it...Pitching on top of yeast cakes
    is wonderful and its almost like making a 5 gallon yeast starter! The yeast count is so huge
    that ferment...

    You may be better off just getting a keg-shell (SS), and either find someone who can blow-torch
    the top off of it (or you can do that yourself if you have the means). Then you can fit it with
    a ball-v...

    Are you freezing for sanitation reasons or other? Just curious.

    whatever you get just put a thermometer inside the keezer and glance at it every once in a
    while to make sure your freezer is what you think it is at. Remember that if your temp probe is
    near the side...

    looks like my problem is definitely in the started, I treated it pretty regularly. Thanks for
    the help, I think the next batch will be much better. :-)

    Good stuff, I just gave it a stir and there were a decent amount of bubbles that raised from
    the trub, so at least its doing something. If I dont see more activity in the next few days
    I'll repitch ac...

    Still really slow on bubbling after a few days, nearly nothing...gravity is only at about
    1.050... :-( I'm thinking about adding another pack of hydrated montrachet but if I do that I
    want to cut the ...

  • Posted in thread: How long in fridge for starter to have yeast drop? on 07-02-2010 at 06:38 PM
    It will probably drop out within a few hours, when the starter temp equilibrates with your
    fridge. However, putting it in the fridge now will give you more assurance.

  • Posted in thread: Would you toss it? on 07-02-2010 at 06:36 PM
    You dont need to throw out the brew, but if you get a slight metallic taste you'll know why, if
    its real apparent you may want to through it out just for taste reasons. Fastenal will have the
    SS washe...
