    Almost looks like the beer is settling out into different specific gravities?

    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 05:18 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
    WLP002 will domi...

    With IPAs I tend to do a single dry hop that's much quicker than suggested in kits. My thought
    with IPAs and IIPAs is they should be in bottles no later than 28 days after brewing. I think
    often the k...

    It's closer to 20 billion cells per gram. You are talking about the guaranteed minimum that
    Fermentis prints, but that is just that - a guaranteed minimum number of cells for a packet
    stored in less t...

    I was under the impression a packet of US 05 had about 69 billion yeast cells in it? The
    density of yeast is about 6 billion cells per gram, 11.5 grams in the packet. I'd definitely
    make a starter if ...

    Fantastic kit, and damn close. 1.088's going to make a pretty fundamentally different beer
    though, I have no idea how that'll taste. I don't think it'll be for the better. The 1.070
    gravity produces a...

    Thanks guys, appreciate the help! I'll probably get around to bottling on Monday.

    after 10 days i cold crash then keg. if i dry hop then i will let it go 14 days. i dont see the
    need to keep it in the primary for so long like some people do. if you pitch a good amount of
    yeast, aer...

    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...
