    LHBS has two BCs...I assume they have been around for quite a few years. When I first started
    visiting this shop a couple years ago, I encountered occasional problems with the rollers not
    pulling the ...

    I found an early photo of the starters before the one on the left began to darken. The
    difference from the start to the end is very stark.

    Both starters were used with the same brand of extra light DME, both boiled in the same pot,
    each for 15 minutes, etc. No heat on the stir plate. They were the same color at the start when

    Still have some of this English barleywine as I have moved that particular keg in and out of

    Had a surprise with some Burton Ale yeast starters this past week. Used the White Labs WLP023

    separate yeas...

    Style Guidelines, but I think with a view towards lagers/pilsners, something can taste great
    (which is alwa...

    I've got the 55 gallon G2 kettles with one element in each for brewing 1bbl batches. Other than
    having an initial problem with the cords which was due to a manufacturing issue and Blichmann

  • Posted in thread: Harvest from Stone Brewing on 11-22-2014 at 04:18 PM
    I read a story on the Stone Blog that their yeast originate from a Canadian microbrewery in
    Oregon that shut down. They go on to explain how a person tried to take a bunch of yeast on a
    plane, but the...
