Here's my very first pellicle, using Yeast Bay's Saison/Brett blend in a saison. I'm so proud!

Well even if the beer wasn't done fermenting when you racked it to the keg, sitting in the keg
at 37°F for two months should have knocked all the yeast out of suspension either way. Judging
by it's ap...
Posted in thread: High ABV beer with high FG not carbing in keg on 02-01-2015 at 12:03 AM
Well nevermind, I finally got it to carb up. I set it to 30 psi again, unhooked it and rolled
it around on the floor for a few minutes and that got the c02 to dissolve into the beer. No

Any update on your problem? Specifically a solution? I am currently having the same issue with

Posted in thread: Why doesn't the hop character of my beers taste the same as commercial beers on 01-26-2015 at 06:49 PM

White Spruce tips that I also picked. I crushed a bunch of needles, smelled them, tasted them,
made a tea...
Posted in thread: Yeast starter using dry yeast?? on 01-08-2015 at 04:40 PM
For me, the one and only reason I ever use dry yeast over liquid yeast is so that I DON'T have
to make a starter. I plan my beer and when I order the ingredients I just make sure to order

Go for it. Learn from my mistake, you don't need a ton of cedar to get good cedar flavor and
aroma.Same with using spruce bough tips. I went with 2 oz last time I brewed it, it was pretty

Funny thing is everybody talks about using spruce tips, but the tips, have very little actual
"pine" flavor to them. They are actually very mild and almost citrusy. Try one for your self.
