Thanks for the tips. I definitely had a bit of trouble accurately determining the mash temp.
During the hour mash, I got pretty different temps before/after stirring each fifteen minutes.
I had the ke...

I have posted some negative comments about this yeast on this thread, but I will say that I
just drank a 6 month old bottle of New Zealand pale ale with 100% 644 and it was actually
delicious. It was ...

I can't believe that I read this entire thread. It sounds like I'm going to make an IPA with an
ale starter, no aeration, 75 degrees and let it ferment for 6 weeks. I want that tropical

That's probably the best way to go.The other might be to bitter with something whose AA you
