    The yeast worked very well in the beer. I top cropped about 1/2 of yeast this afternoon. This
    is after 6 days in the primary. I supplied it with 1 tsp of table sugar and 1/2 of water. I had
    to burp my...

    I've learned a couple of things, over the last 4 years. Fermentation temps are crucial to a
    quality product. And pitching good, strong and healthy yeast is vitally important. My last
    three batches hav...

    Not sugar, no. It is literally called "Yeast Energizer" by BSG. It can be used to restart stuck
    fermentation.

  • Posted in thread: What's your latest brewing mistake! Rookies and Pros--- on 12-16-2014 at 04:10 AM
    I fermented a barley wine at 68F only to wake up and find that my Notty had taken things up to
    82 F. Jet fuel...I had to dump all 4 gallons.

    Turns out it wasn't a fatal dose. The kolsch is very merrily chugging away.

  • Posted in thread: I think I murdered my yeast. on 12-14-2014 at 04:42 PM
    Here's the short story:I made a yeast starter for my Kolsch yeast the day before brewing. I
    accidentally added enough yeast energizer for my entire 5 gallon batch instead of what I need
    just for the s...

  • Posted in thread: CO2 bubbles in secondary on 12-13-2014 at 12:15 AM
    That looks 100% normal to me. It does not sound like anything weird is going on. I've had
    bubbles in my secondary, before. The yeast are finishing the job they started in the primary.
    They're still ac...

  • Posted in thread: Maximize efficiency with coarsely ground grain on 12-12-2014 at 09:13 PM
    I consider what I was able to get out of my grain, today, a success. I hit 70.5% efficiency,
    even with the horrible crush. I normally hit between 68-72%, but that is without a 90 minute
    mash, pH stabi...

    + 5 light SMaSH=42,50342,503 + 5 gallons of Hirnibraeu clone lager = 42,508 gallons.

  • Posted in thread: Maximize efficiency with coarsely ground grain on 12-12-2014 at 03:48 AM
    So my LHBS sent me off with a pretty chunky grind on my 11# of grain I purchased today. I asked
    to pass it through again, and he did. It still came out looking like crap. I have whole kernels
    mixed in...
