Thanks for the explanation. Why do you want to keep the gravity low? Are you saying that it
won't propagate or that it will have off-flavors if you use too high a SG? No, 1.037 is too
high for culturi...

It really doesn't matter if the gravity is 1.010 or 1.020. The Crabtree effect is going to
prevent respirative growth at any gravity above 1.005 (respirative growth is much more

Interesting reading these comments. I brewed the AG version of NB Chinook IPA recently. Hit all
my numbers and had no problems with the batch - but am disappointed in the taste. Its not even
close to ...
