  • Posted in thread: Repitching dry yeast? on 10-20-2014 at 03:59 PM
    Windsor is a low attenuating yeast, so it will finish higher (and be sweeter/fruitier) than
    something like Notty which will finish low. Windsor also ferments fast, like S04 so it's not
    unusual that it...

    The guys down at Farmhouse are TOP NOTCH. I stopped through on a trip and wish I wouldn't have
    had the 2+hr drive so I could have hung out a little longer.Best selection of hops I've seen in
    the state...

    The universe laughs at me again! :mad:I've had enough of the keg with no bottom (aka the
    Tumbleweed) - seriously, I've been drinking it for the last few weeks and it had no end in
    sight. So, I figured...

    Sweet. Thanks for the education, gang.Beer's still carbed, still pushing, tank does feel light
    but I don't have a weight to compare it with (it's a steel 5#) so that point is moot. I'll just
    keep an e...

    Silly question time,I've been keeping an eye on my tank since putting it in the keezer, and due
    to temp, the vol gauge dipped - no biggy. I've been pouring consistantly around 12psi for a
    month or two...

    That's what I do typically with IIPA's, make something medium and then save the yeast slurry
    and repitch that.I used to pitch right on the cake when I was brewing every weekend, but now
    that summer/fa...

    Styrian Goldings is supposed to be a Czech Fuggles, if memory serves - or is it EKG? It's one
    of them, and for some reason my brain's foggy.Saaz is a different animal - but in my opinion, I
    love Saaz ...

    Burninator - what's your typical effeciency?Most of the Styrian Stunner recipes I've seen have
    a large bittering addition, mid flavor, and lighter aroma. Sort of a 4/2/1 ratio, so if you're
    using 16g ...

  • Posted in thread: When to bottle 1 gallon batch? on 10-17-2014 at 01:50 AM
    All my beers sit 21 days minimum - sometimes a little longer if life gets in the way. I check
    final gravity at time of bottling. The beer will finish when it finishes, I don't believe in
    "rushing" the...

    As a word of warning -S33 will ferment through fast, and then will SLOWLY wind it's way down to
    final gravity over a month or so. If you're at 1.020 now, in a month it'll be 1.014-13 or less.
    S33 take...
