Posted in thread: Question about my first starter on 07-24-2014 at 08:44 PM
I routinely make 2 liter(pre-boil) starters in 2000 ml flasks and have never had any issue. I
typically end up with 1.75l after the boil, so I would just chalk it up to chance or maybe the
temps in yo...

You should be good, even with the lower volume. If you play around on mrmalty.com, then you can
see that a 2 liter starter for a 1.069 beer would get you enough yeast. I just plugged in that
your the ...

I've done a Bitter American based beer and I have always done 156, but I also use Cal Ale,
instead of 1968. I use 88% Golden Promise as the base malt, 6% Munich and 6% split between C15

I think I am going to dry hop by APA with the Citra and leave the Hef be. I need to take a
gravity reading tonight, but it definitely hasn't dropped out. I am a little short on vessels

I threw together a recipe for an American Wheat/Rye beer last week, but wanted to brew it that
day. At the LHBS, I grabbed packet of Fermentis WB-06 dry yeast, because they guys at the shop

Pretty cool set up though.

I guess it depends on how cold your kitchen is. Room temp has always worked for me, but the
house doesn't go below 68 in the Winter, because the wife would freeze to death or so she says.

I used it in a Mild that I have had in the keg for about 2 weeks and it definitely dropped
extremely clear. I can't speak to the attenuation, because I dropped my hydrometer, but my Mild
has almost 20...

I actually mash my Pale at 158 and use Golden Promise as the base malt just to get some more
body into it. It is 4.5% with only a small bittering charge followed up by everything else at
flame out wit...

I only usually hear of people using their homegrown hops at the end of the boil, because they
don't have a way to test the alpha acids in the hops. Could you bitter with something else you
have on han...
