Having a hard time finding any good info on this yeast outside of basic stats. Anyone use it
before. Looking for optimal temps and what brewery this might be from.

Cheers. That's usually where I come out on it. But the mention of dms gave me a case of the

Right I am going to go with two row but was reading a recipe from Jamil Z and it mentions a 90
minute boil to reduce dms even though it's two row.

Making some American style lagers which use rice or corn as adjuncts. Do these contribute any
dms potential that would require me to push boil to 90 minutes?

Stat wise what is the difference between an alt and stick alt. Bjcp 2015 has max og at 1.052

That's the crux of the problem. I can adjust the efficiency but that doesn't solve for the over
estimate of gravity points after a 60 minute boil. Last four brew days the mash efficiency was

You are right refractometer. I cool my samples down prior to taking a reading. I use a small
pippette then cool it in cool water and test on wrist. If it's cool I test it. I did try to
create my own m...

I am not actually biab. I am no sparge. But to get a no sparge set up in bs you have to use
biab profile. I put full water volume in tun with false bottom with grains. And Lauter into

Hey guys thanks here are the answers. Boil off rate is correct based off last three brews this
is entered on profileDead space and trub leave behind is also entered on profile. I leave the

I have had some weird issues with beersmith specifically with gravity estimates. Weird in that
my preboil gravity is often either 10 points greater than estimated or 6 points under what is
