    What kind of yeast did you use? Did you make a starter? What was your OG?Wyeast Bavarian Lager,
    no starter :drunk: (I know better now). The OG was 1.056 and at 8 days it was 1.062, probably a
    little v...

    I have a bock that has shown no signs of fermentation, confirmed by the hydrometer. I ordered a
    yeast starter kit and intended on making a starter and pitching. So I get all the stuff in
    today and go ...

    [QUOTE=Revvy;819824]Have you taken a hydro reading in the last 9 days??? That is the only way
    to tell whether or not fermentation has occured....There really is no other way, no other
    method to say wh...

    That's refreshing, we do sanitize everything. I guess my concern is that fermentation has not
    started and its been in the fermenter for 9 days. We have more yeast coming tomorrow and I'm
    going to make...

  • Posted in thread: What's up with the bottle brush? on 08-27-2008 at 01:35 AM
    The best tip I ever received was bottling in the dishwasher. We normally give the bottles a
    quick brush and then soak them in Starsan. After that we put them in the dishwasher upside down
    (to let the ...

    I would be interested in finding out what that is as well. I have the beginings of what looks
    to be very similar in a bock that had problems starting fermentation. It actually started right
    after I to...

  • Posted in thread: First lager attempt pitching method?? on 08-22-2008 at 03:45 PM
    Yeah, that's right.You are going to have a poor fermentation run on this brew with likely a
    long fermentation followed by poor attenuation ( good attenuation really needed for the crisp
    flavour that a...

  • Posted in thread: First lager attempt pitching method?? on 08-21-2008 at 08:59 PM
    Yep... shoulda made a starter. ;) And, I hope you aerated well. If not, you may want to aerate
    again so the yeast cells can reproduce to sufficient quantities to do the job.I pitched a 2L
    starter of W...

  • Posted in thread: First lager attempt pitching method?? on 08-21-2008 at 08:37 PM
    First time to brew a lager.... and a couple of questions have arisen.The yeast(Wyeast Bavarian
    Lager) smelled funny(bad) when opened and the pack didn't really swell like previous ones. I
    had heard th...
