Borrowed a buddy's wort chiller, didn't tighten the clamps over the vinyl tubing. Hooked it up
to the outside tap, right underneath my living room window, ran the tubing inside through the
Posted in thread: Would you skip the starter for Wyeast 3711 Saison? on 08-28-2015 at 02:17 PM
I ended up going with Wyeast 3726 farmhouse ale (likely the last pack the brew shop will see
for the year), and I've made a 3 liter starter so that I can stash some yeast away for an early
Posted in thread: Would you skip the starter for Wyeast 3711 Saison? on 08-25-2015 at 09:05 PM
Hey guys, thanks for your replies. The only reason I am tempted to skip the starter for this
batch is because I am trying to squeeze in one last brew day before I am overseas for a month,
and this bre...

I am going to brew a Saison with Wyeast 3711 French Saison. Having used this yeast a couple
times before, I know that it rips through wort until there is practically nothing left to chew
on, and that ...

I'd say that's the perfect amount of yeast considering the strength and volume of wort you are

the pitch ...

I would guess that the 47% syrup content really messed with your yeast. I think I've heard a
few times that simple sugar content really shouldn't exceed 20%, or else the yeast will not eat
Posted in thread: mini fridge or freezer for fermentation chamber? on 05-12-2015 at 02:19 PM
Hey guys, I'm trying to decide which unit is best to get for a fermentation chamber. First of

Hello all, I looked at Wyeast's online FAQ, but couldn't find the info I seek.So, I left a
newly purchased smack pack out (72f)for 9 hours. Big deal? I don't really think so, but just
wanted to make s...
Posted in thread: Cali common vs Bohemian lager on 06-20-2014 at 05:46 PM
Hey all, I plan to brew a pilsneresque beer, and will use either wyeast Cali lager, or wyeast
Bohemian lager (apparently capable of fermenting at as high as 22 Celsius) since I need to
ferment at 17-1...
