  • Posted in thread: Storing Star San - Fermenting Bucket? on 02-09-2013 at 10:38 PM
    You're fine for short periods, but don't do it over an extended period.I had a bucket I used
    just for Star San, and over the course of about 9 months the bottom of the bucket developed a
    slow leak.

    Take your gravity reading for sure.If the gravity looks good and the starter smells nice and
    yeasty, I'd have no problem using it.If you do indeed have viable yeast that you've awakened,
    they will hap...

    If you have corny kegs, they work fantastic for fermentation, lagering, you name it.Kegs give
    you the ability to transfer beer between vessels that have been purged with CO2 using
    counter-pressure; co...

    It sounds like they're very specifically trying to prohibit beta-amylase from doing any of it's
    normal maltose snipping, leaving a very dextrinous wort.It sounds sort of similar to the lambic
    turbid m...

    A pretty popular method (and the one I use) is the Narziss method and it goes something like
    this:Wort is chilled below fermentation temp and yeast is pitched. (say 45 F)The temp is then
    gradually rai...

    I've used the San Francisco yeast to make a Marzen, which I fermented at 50 degrees, and I was
    pretty disappointed. The beer was very clean and smooth, but I think this yeast is a hop
    accentuator, and...

    Crystal 60 will be fine. I wouldn't use any extra.I hope you got the Wyeast 1084, you can get
    quite a bit of sweetness out of it if you ferment a bit higher in it's range. I like 68.Also,
    for next tim...

  • Posted in thread: No yeast for a week. Is it ruined? on 01-22-2013 at 02:20 AM
    Most lager ferments aren't that exciting anyway. No beer fountains from stuck blow-off tubes,
    etc. like you can get with ales.So how do you tell what's going on? By taking samples.A LOT of
    people unde...

    Ideally the less pieces you have, the better. They will all need to be cleaned.There is a 2"
    triclover stainless ball valve on Ebay that you might want to look at.Right now it's pretty

    I still haven't found a better base stout recipe than BierMuncher's Ode to Arthur.If you want a
    dry stout, use WLP007, it'll pull any sweetness out.If you want something a little sweeter, use
