Anyone ferment in the low 60s. Doing a pale ale. My house is about 74. My basement is about 62.
I've read many say try to keep it under 70, but nothing about going as low as 62. Anyone have

to me, i feel like blending would make you lose some weight, as well as some of the hop oils?
that would get stuck to the blades/blender wall. I also don't think it would store super
wellI'll buy that...

Fair enough. The opening of the packages is not really the issue. The issue is measuring out

Just a follow-up on my latest attempt. My first tasting after 10 days in primary was pretty

I didn't notice the sweetness in Heady until I started trying to clone it. My first attempts
were just Pearl and Crystal 10. Side by side, Heady was noticeably sweeter. To the point where,
I added Spl...
