Slow Fermentation - Wash & Reuse or Throw Out Yeast?

I made a 3 liter starter of PacMan for a brew two weeks back. I used my newly constructed fermentation chamber to control temp for the starter. Unfortunately I botched the settings on the digital...

Nelson Sauvin Wheat Wine Ale

Thinking of doing a single hop Nelson Sauvin Wheat Wine Ale. I've never had opportunity to try a Wheat Wine so this is a one-off guess on a grain bill. I've also not used Nelson Sauvin, but hear...

Hi Kevin -

The easiest way is to do it with your system is to initially use a pretty thick mash (1 gallon/pound of grain) and add boiling water to move up in the mashes. There are online...
