Sorry, I was looking for a liquid substitute. I went with WLP300. I figure if the orange/honey gets overshadowed by the banana/clove, I'll still have a tasty hefe. If I used the American hefe...

Which would you recommend as a substitute for the dry yeast in your recipe? I'm worried the banana clove would overshadow the honey/orange.

Looks like it will work.

Would your recommended yeast substitution be the WLP300? I've had bad luck with dry yeast.

Looks really good. Thanks for including a partial mash version.

I have a 3 gallon Rubbermaid MLT. Will it fit 6.5 pounds of grain? I've never tried that much at a time. Anybody know?

Keezing kegging question - how to keep beer cold?

Might sound like a dumb question, but I'm having trouble keeping the beer at a consistent temperature. For fermenting I use a stopper thermowell with my temperature probe so that I have an exact...

I certainly hope so. My first attempt at lagering was a mess. The only batch I ever dumped because it truly tasted bad. I could use a success, and now that I know it doesn't necessarily take...

What's crazy is that I just pitched the yeast 10 days ago and the beer already tastes like I believe it should. I wouldn't imagine that it would need 5 weeks, but if after 2 it still isn't where I...

Well I'm excited now. Just took a gravity sample yesterday and I'm at 1.014. I was aiming for 1.012 but this is close enough. It may drop a little more when I cool it down to settle out all the...

I'll probably check the gravity in a few more days to see where I'm at. It's only been 7 days since I pitched. When I do ales, I let it sit 3 weeks on the trub. Possibly racking after 10 days or...

Great, thanks for the advice.

The fermentation has slowed down quite a bit. One bubble every 15 seconds or so, now. I hope there's enough left to get the gravity down lower. According to...

Would it be a good idea to chill down to ~34 degrees in the primary and letting it sit for a day before racking to a secondary fermentation ? That way I can be sure all the yeast would drop out of...

I keep the lid open just until the inside of the keezer warms up to room temperature, then I close it again. The reason I do this is because to go from 85 to 68, the keezer has to pretty much get as...
