Posted in thread: Adding spices after the boil on 12-17-2013 at 05:11 AM
Adding them at kegging is actually the best way to go. Start with about half of what your
recipe calls for and then if you need more you can add it later. Remember, you can always add
more, but you ca...
Posted in thread: Is a 50' immersion chiller overkill for 5 gallon batches? on 12-09-2013 at 04:05 PM
No, it's not overkill. I recently stepped up from a 25' 3/8" chiller to a 50' 3/8" chiller and
have noticed a HUGE difference in chill times.Make the bigger chiller, you won't regret it.
Just make sur...

Looks good to me. A pretty good example of KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid)! WLP002 is fine,
unless you're looking for a more "crisp" finish, then use 001. Either way it should be good.

Toss it out. Not worth the risk IMO. Any idea how much yeast slurry you've actually got in the

Over pitching is very unlikely as ester production is usually amplified with underpitching and
general yeast stress.What were the *actual* fermentation temps? Did they stay steady? How were
Posted in thread: Pitching rate for 1bbl saison? on 10-20-2013 at 10:43 PM
Definitely reconsider underpitching with this yeast. You'll get plenty of ester production with
a proper pitch using this yeast strain. As others have already said, 3724 is very finicky.
Start it out ...
Posted in thread: Rhino farts only when reusing yeast on 09-16-2013 at 06:55 AM
Yeast will change from generation to generation. By reusing yeast you're essentially selecting
certain characteristics of the yeast whether you know (or intend) it or not. It might not
necessarily be ...
Posted in thread: Sanitary cultivation of yeast from the bottle on 09-02-2013 at 08:42 PM
Whenever I do a step starter I take a lighter to the lip of the bottles prior to pouring them
into a glass and immediately recap them. I'll also flame the lip of the bottle prior to
pitching into star...
Posted in thread: First all grain BIAB - Low OG - should I add DME? on 09-02-2013 at 08:33 PM
Do you just add DME strait to the pal or do you boil and add?You'll need to boil it and add it
to sanitize it. If you've already pitched your yeast it wouldn't be a bad idea to chill it down
prior to ...
Posted in thread: Beer getting more carbonated with time? on 08-30-2013 at 02:57 AM
Unless you "kill" the yeast or remove it somehow, there will be a little fermentation going on
until there is no more sugar for it to eat.This is not true. Different yeast strains are able
to consume ...
