  • Posted in thread: Quick yeast slurry question on 10-22-2016 at 11:42 AM
    How much yeast slurry should I expect from a 45 gallon batch in a conical? I pulled off yeast
    this morning and only got about a liter before it started shooting out liquid. Does that sound
    about right...

    Recently upgraded my brew setup to 1.5 bbl. I'm thinking of building a keg rocker. I envision a
    rocking chair type setup made from 2x8 and an elliptical pulley attached to a cordless drill.

    Try no bittering addition, some at 20, some at 5 and a boatload at flameout then whirlpool for

    You can get blank cans and sealer here.

    Check this video of can sealing process. If you use a beer gun, purge with co2 then seal, the
    result would be no different than commercial canning lines, just a lot slower.

    I've been brewing a hoppy rye saison for a couple years now, using the WLP565. I've fallen in
    love with this strain. I've had zero problems with it. I will say, in the beginning, my
    hesitation to cran...

    I stopped by the spot today. Absolutely loaded with hop. Probably 20-30 lbs dried, if you
    picked them all. I pulled down enough to get a few pounds. Very fragrant. Healthy, no bugs,
    1-1/2" -2" cones, ...

    Would it be usefull to collect rhizomes this time of year. I am under the impression they are
    only replanted in the spring.Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

    The plants are left side of the road. Easy to spot. I noticed them in the spring, before there
    were any flowers. Went back a few week ago and they were loaded. Not sure if there were any
    male plants. ...
