Yup, should be good. I had that when I was working with WLP007 (I think). My first starter had that and I didn't get a clear enough answer, so I dumped it and started again. At the LHBS I noticed a...

Instead of going to NHC I'll be taking care of my daughter, grocery shopping and continuing on with everyday life. I'll try to get a starter on the stir plate at some point to prep for a future brew.

I definitely agree with the whirlpool calculator on Beersmith. I usually just ignore flameout IBU's on IPA's and such.

Great info, I look forward to more discussion.

I bagged them and weighed them down the first few times. Now I don't bother. I just toss the hops right in there and save the hassle and get better contact with the beer.

When you dry hop in the...

You can save yourself the trouble of getting them out and just send 3/4 of the hops you would have used to me :fro:. On a serious note, when using this many hops, have you noticed a grassy or vegetal...

Only thing I would say is that a pound a crystal is a lot, to me, on a 6.25 lb grain bill. I tend to think that crystal gets in the way of good hop flavor though, and avoid it when doing hop forward...

Helps give session beers a decent body. It's what I mashes my 4%ABV IPA at and it had about an average body for an IPA.

Gordon Strong's Chai Spiced Brown Ale

There are two different versions floating around of this one. One in Radical Brewing and one in Brewing Better Beer. I figured the one in Brewing Better Beer is probably the more recent (and his...

Why move it to secondary? Unless it is going to see prolonged aging, you can leave it in primary until it is ready to bottle.

Like I said, I'm not sure if it would be in a starter, but in a regular fermentation. It causes a high finishing gravity and incomplete fermentation. I know most of the growth phase occurs very...

Not sure if this applies to starters, but when fermenting, if you use too large of a container for a low volume it can cause the yeast to flocculate prematurely. The shallow depth and large diameter...
