Posted in thread: Can a Big Beer Finish in 3 Days? on 04-13-2012 at 02:01 PM
I fermented at 67 +/-. Mr Malty called for a 5L starter and 2 vials. (I missed OG of 1.101).
Rather than do that I went with the cake. Got another batch of beer out of it, too. I'm not
sure that that'...

I plan 3 weeks in the primary, 4-6 months batch-aging in the secondary. I don't have a thief,
so hydrometer readings from a 6.5 gallon carboy would be tough. I guess I'm just hoping to
hear, "happens ...

Howdy,I know, I know, 3 days of hydrometer readings. I just wanted to know if it's possible or
usual.I pitched 5.5 gallons of 1.085 barleywine onto a WPL001 yeast cake. It fermented
furiously from hou...

I use 6.5 gallon carboys.

Made my first barleywine. I pitched about 5.5 gallons of 1.085 (missed OG of 1.101) onto a
fresh yeast cake of WPL001. Fast bubbling in 2 hours. My blowoff is a 1/2" vinyl tube into a 16
oz glass 1/2 ...

Wow! This one's a crowd-pleaser. Nicely toasty/malty but with a good hoppy zing. Definitely the
best AG I've done to date. I love it, SWMBO loves it. Not going to last...sigh.

If you're in the mood for hop madness this is a great recipe: drinking it right now and it's
fantastic.It takes a crapload of centennial, but you can get a pound for $18.59 here: ship
very quickly, ...
Posted in thread: Why are my starters always erupting? on 03-23-2012 at 06:04 PM
I'm with you. I typically make a starter on Saturday for Sunday use, mostly because of time
constraints. I never have trouble with lag time or active fermentation that way. I generally
use, and need, ...

Three days is too long for a starter...this is like the 3rd or 4th time i've posted this
video...Interesting. There are MANY threads on HBT stating it's okay to let it go for days +.

You used twice as much dme as you want to if 200g in 1L was what you did.That simple? Cool,
thanks.You made 2 starters using 2 separate 2L flasks? And each flask was filled with 2L of
wort? I'm confus...
