I'm guessing the fermentation chamber will hold a 6.5 gallon carboy?I might be interested but
I'd need to see what's happening with $.
Posted in thread: Not enough english yeast. can I add s-05 to make up the diff? on 07-20-2014 at 04:18 PM
It'll probably dry it out a bit. White Labs makes a blend of WLP001 and WLP002, WLP200.
According to the promo material, you might want to pitch a little more 05 than WLP002 since the

With IPAs I tend to do a single dry hop that's much quicker than suggested in kits. My thought

gravity produces a...

Or is it pretty standard, just for consistency? I don't use secondaries anymore and I've got a
stout on 1968 that seems like it's pretty well fermented and cleaned itself up after 8 days.
I'm going to...
