What was the OG, and what yeast is it? Yeast won't die, but they would end their phase and drop out of suspension into hibernation. Warming it up doesn't mean they will automagically restart, but...

Thermometer may be the #1 most important piece of gear you have. I've got a 12" probe Thermoworks and can't recommend it enough. I can probe way down into the mash tun, different areas in the wort...

Brew last Sunday and pitched S-04 into 13G of 1.059 with O2, the heavy ferment slowed by Wednesday, but it's still clicking along. Today it has slowed a lot, and gravity is at 1.012 now. Dry hopping...

I'm going to forget the Motueka, and dry hop with either Citra, Simcoe, or Mosaic or a mix of these. I have no experience with these other than the Citra used in the boil, my Belgians use all Tett...

Has anyone not dry hopped? I'm not as worried about getting a straight ZD clone, just something similar, maybe somewhere between ZD and Magic Hat 9? I used Motueka and Citra in the boil and am not...
