When did you take your sample for gravity and where was it pulled from? Your wort might not
have been homogeneous...

Yea they should be nearly airtight. Whenever I open one it takes some effort and has a good
vacuum just from having some silica in the bottom.

Also, it might be possible to obtain isolation from streaking on WLD, then separating based on
acid production, as LAB will have much higher acid production. Or mounting individual colonies
on slides ...

You might be able to use a desiccator with a candle, though I am not sure if the seal would be
air tight. They are usually used to remove moisture from a system using silica. They have large

The real thing to take home is that everyone's palate is different due to genetics. Small
sample sizes from sensory panels may not be representative of the population. Heck, some people
cannot even pe...

I agree, though as said plastic is an issue sometimes, no matter how good you clean and
sanitize. Old plastic fermentors will inevitably be scratched. Not sure why you would need a
different CO2 tank ...

I think you should be able to get JP in Seattle. If not, there is plenty in Portland if you
happen to make it there ever.

I brewed a black sour with the lacto culture. Pitched lacto first and let it do its thing for
around 48 hours at around 100 degrees with some variation. Cooled down to around 80 and let it
drop to roo...
Posted in thread: Large cylindrical cooler source? on 12-04-2014 at 12:26 AM
Coleman used to offer those cylindrical 70 qt xtremes but I cannot seem to find them anywhere
online anymore. Anyone have a source or an alternative? Thanks.
Posted in thread: Should I lower my ferment temperture, 1 week later on 11-09-2014 at 02:21 AM
You will not get rid of the ester profile by lowering the temperature. Ale ester profiles are
created mostly in the first 2 days of fermentation, but as long as 5 days in some cases. You
