  • Posted in thread: Are 5 min hop additions necessary if you're dry-hopping? on 04-01-2007 at 09:12 PM
    I've heard strong opinions both way (dry hopping negates 5 min and under additions or they

    After my last brew I poured the majority of the yeast/trub mixture from my primary into a
    sanitized plastic container and stored it in the fridge for about a week and a half. I am

    have "beeruc...

    So it is winter now and if I leave for a day or two my house gets down into the mid 40's to low
    50's, too cold for my ale yeasts. My fermentation stopped completely when I was gone for the
