    Indeed, that sounds good. I've messed around with 3 lager yeasts now 830, 833, and 838 (same as
    the 2308). All decent, but I prefer the 833. Probably stick with it for all my lagers. 830 was
    good, jus...

    How are you measuring FG? Refractometer by chance? If so, remember to correct the FG reading
    based on your OG.

    In addition to what cadillac said, I would say DON'T write anything by hand. You only need your
    bottle labels - rubber banded to your bottles. The bottle labels will have been printed by your

    I don't have the eisbock experience you're looking for, but I have bottle conditioned a few
    doppelbocks. 1. For a fully attenuated eisbock (and it needed to be fully attenuated before
    eising), there i...

    Maybe...I'd wait until Tuesday/Wednesday (the 11th or 12th) to ship and hope for the best. I
    would assume that your bottles will get refrigerated once they arrive. I would bottle like you
    plan, ship o...

    This wasn't what was asked, but I bought a couple of these to have on hand. They work well and
    don't anticipate having to rebuild that often.

  • Posted in thread: Making AG starter wort on 02-04-2014 at 02:54 AM
    My vote is before and after. I just about always save at least a liter of wort after I've
    boiled and chilled - essentially the dregs with all of my break material, etc, the last bit
    that I don't want ...

  • Posted in thread: My first Bo Pils....need advice on decoctions! on 01-23-2014 at 07:53 PM
    One thing to add...I was a dyed in the wool batch sparger, saw no reason EVER to change on the
    homebrew level, until I did my first decoction. mjohnson's post above reminded me when he
    mentioned batch...

    I would mash in at 100F like they say, but I don't think it's necessary to hold it for 30
    minutes. You want the mash to be fully wet/hydrated, and give it time to for the enzymes to get
    in solution. 3...
