I fermented at 67 +/-. Mr Malty called for a 5L starter and 2 vials. (I missed OG of 1.101). Rather than do that I went with the cake. Got another batch of beer out of it, too. I'm not sure that...

I plan 3 weeks in the primary, 4-6 months batch-aging in the secondary. I don't have a thief, so hydrometer readings from a 6.5 gallon carboy would be tough. I guess I'm just hoping to hear,...

Can a Big Beer Finish in 3 Days?

Howdy,

I know, I know, 3 days of hydrometer readings. I just wanted to know if it's possible or usual.

I pitched 5.5 gallons of 1.085 barleywine onto a WPL001 yeast cake. It fermented...

My blowoff needs a blowoff

Made my first barleywine. I pitched about 5.5 gallons of 1.085 (missed OG of 1.101) onto a fresh yeast cake of WPL001. Fast bubbling in 2 hours. My blowoff is a 1/2" vinyl tube into a 16 oz glass...

Wow! This one's a crowd-pleaser. Nicely toasty/malty but with a good hoppy zing. Definitely the best AG I've done to date. I love it, SWMBO loves it. Not going to last...sigh.

That simple? Cool, thanks.



I made 2 1-liter starters each in the 2 Liter flask. One I made on Sunday and put into the fridge on Wednesday. The second I made on Wednesday for Sunday pitching.

Why are my starters always erupting?

Howdy,

I see what you're saying. Really. Maybe I'm just being dense, but if we all make our starters the same, the amount of CHO/L is the same whether we add 1 vial or 2. So if 1 vial will not produce...

It's a barleywine, 6 gallons, OG 1.109. Mr Malty says 1.84 L starter (stirrer) with 2 vials.

My solution is to brew a nice pale ale with the same yeast and then pitch onto the yeast cake. But...

More than 1 vial for starter?

Playing with the Mr. Malty yeast calculator sometimes gives the recommendation for more than 1 vial of liquid yeast for a starter. Other then decreasing the time to maximum number of...

Sounds good.

What Styles Can Be Made by SMaSH?

Howdy,

I have a lot of Marris Otter as well as a pound each of Nugget, Cascade, Galena, Williamette, Columbus and Centennial.

I'm not averse to toasting some of the MO.

What can I make...
