    Thanks for all the good info guys.Yeah I am not trying to argue for any certain way, washing
    seems great cause you only need to do it once for each strain. It sounds like you can just use
    one jar to c...

    Traditionally, the rule of thumb for using a yeast cake is: is the 2nd beer darker and higher
    abv than the first. If yes, go cake. If they are close, maybe dump some of the yeast out and
    still go cake...

    Would it really make much of a difference if there was a slight amount of the oatmeal stout in
    the bottom? does the trub infuse off flavors?I have never washed yeast before, so maybe its

    I understand this risk of contamination. But if there are dozens of "It's OK to top off with
    tap water" threads on this forum, how much risk is there in rinsing off some bleach?For the
    record: I use S...

    Bleach and water worked for years before Star San. Not my preference, but it isn't like it

    brite, I thin...

    Some of us have proven some of those "experts" wrong already. Why do you think there books,etc
    change? Because what they thought was true,wasn't. Like using a secondary. I don't give a damn
    WHAT they ...

  • Posted in thread: Adding Cold Water to Wort...Big Mistake? on 05-06-2011 at 06:36 PM
    For good measure I soak the facet head in no rinse sanitizer before using the tap. I trust the
    water, just not the final pipes.

    Also make sure the yeast viability date is correct - the yeast will lose a little viability the
    further it is removed from the lab, so after delivery and buying it and bringing it back to
    your house, ...

    Ok, I'll use 2 cups then. Thanks for clarifying.The more important thing from what I have read
