Posted in thread: Yeast Choice for Stone Double Bastard? on 07-06-2013 at 06:23 PM
I've done some Stone clones and 002 and 005 work well. Those strains are just great in general.

I have the same equipment and question as you. If the probe is waterproof, it would be a good
idea to have it in water so that the temps are steady and don't needlessly kick on when you
open the door ...
Posted in thread: Secondary fermentation temperature on 06-14-2013 at 06:02 PM
How important is it to keep secondary temperature? I'm planning on making a barley wine and an
IRS in time for winter, but I don't want it taking up space in my fermentation chamber. Would
it be ok to...

I should have consulted the forums or Yeast Calc or Mr. Malty a little sooner rather than
getting overzealous and making a yeast starter, but here is my situation: I'm making a
California Common OG 1....

*fixes glasses* yeast is asexual, they do not have sex to replicate. Shart Ale. BrownTown

I recommend you just add a drop to each glass as you pour. Cleaning this out of kegs, lines,
connections and everywhere else can be a PITA.Troof.
Posted in thread: Big starter in fermentation bucket? on 02-15-2013 at 10:46 PM
If you're doing a big starter, you don't want to pitch it into your beer. That could be a
gallon or more of unhopped, oxidized beer going into your nice clean doppelbock. You really
need to be able to...
Posted in thread: Big starter in fermentation bucket? on 02-15-2013 at 09:51 PM
Has anyone made a starter in a fermentation bucket and just pitch their wort directly to it?
I'm planning on a doppelbock and I have a temp controlled fermentation chamber and rather than
needing to b...

I was thinking the same thing about my ferm chamber, my dad suggested a heat lamp which we just
used a 100W incandescent, works just fine. Haven't had any issues with my beer being
light-struck since ...
Posted in thread: presoaking dry hops to remove chlorophyll on 01-24-2013 at 06:30 PM
I believe Hieronymus has talked about brewers dry hopping as soon as fermentation is finished
and for no more than 3 days. Dry hopping for longer than that he says is useless and can
introduce that ve...
