    Chinook seems to be a love it or hate it dry hop addiction. I enjoy it as a dh, but I'll use 1
    oz Chinook, and 3-4 oz of a mix of citra, Amarillo, and simcoe.

    11 grams is most common for a 5 gallon batch, but that all depends on the starting gravity and

    It's cooking now. 75Slowly lower that to 68-70 for 2 days or so, and then let it warm up on its
    own. 75 is a little warm to start with that yeast. IMO the best flavor come from starting at 68
    and endi...

    I've never had a long lag time with this yeast. But I always pitch a big active starter. No
    chilling and decanting. I pitch the starter at high krausen and at fermentation temps.That's
    why. I decant a...

    60 is fine for fermentation temps, but that strain works well at 55 too. IMO a great kolsch
    comes from lagering near freezing for about 1 month. You can do the lagering in the keg or
    bottle. Leave the...

    Yup. Attach the probe to the side of the carboy, and wrap it with bubble wrap. That will give
    you pretty accurate temps.

    I'm making my first yeast starter for this. I rehydrated 2 packs of US 05 and boiled 1 cup of
    DME in 4 cups of water, pitched the yeast and topped up to 1 liter in 2 separate containers.I
    got Centenni...

    No airlock activity after 48 hrs.Still normal. Its super slow to start, but when it gets going
    it goes nuts. It took my last BDS from 1.12 to 1.011 in about 1 week.

    I tasted two more last night made with this yeast; probably not the right choice if you are
    looking for "clean" but some nice complexities for something like a Bock; I even think the
    Oktoberfest I use...
