    I pushed a vial of wlp090 over ten batches without a noticeable change.Take a pack, make a
    starter +100-200b cells, store that in the fridge in a Mason jar. Next brew take the yeast out
    and do the sam...

    You need two weeks for slow carb. Try again next week and I am sure it will be fine. Or
    alternatively turn off the lines to the other kegs, bump the pressure to 25, after 18-24 hours
    drop back to 13ps...

    My suggestion was for a 5g batch if you are able to do that. If 2.5 is max then spread it out
    more with 2 hops at a time and maybe bump to 6%

    Buy pale ale malt as your base. Then get some crystal 10l, 40l, 60l, carapils and 3-6lbs of
    Vienna. Make 3 or 4 beers, switch which caramel and mix in the carapils and Vienna equally in
    all. Or pick o...

  • Posted in thread: WLP 090 first use, possible issues on 11-25-2016 at 04:25 AM
    090 is the yeast I use for 90% of my beers. It is great. Took it to about 12 generations (lost
    track) off one pack and worked great each time. Never made a starter with Apple juice, always
    dme or if i...

  • Posted in thread: Continues starters to reuse yeast for a year on 11-15-2016 at 01:13 AM
    I use the homebrew dad calc and brought a pack of wlp090 to at least the 12th gen before I
    decided to start fresh. I typically make 100b more but sometimes up to 250 more. Never once had
    a problem wit...

    I saw this at beer-wine hobby this weekend. I can't see how you don't oxidize the hell out of
    the beer when flipping it to replace the bottom. Looked awesome but I'm not sure how it is
    functionally be...

  • Posted in thread: Low gravity, low alcohol. What now? on 11-14-2016 at 11:24 PM
    Personally for my tastes a 3.3% beer with a FG of 1.016 sounds terrible. I would raise the temp
    over 70 for a few days, of no change then add some sugar and DME. I like drier beers unless it
    is a RIS ...
