Stepped it up once and now if I put an air lock on it for a while it starts bubbling. Very surprised it's alive after over a year in the back of the ice box. Looks like I brew tomorrow.

That's what I was thinking. I use a stir plate. Not sure how to judge viability after starter is started - take a gravity reading?

2010 washed yeast

Does not smell bad. Is 16 months too long to keep a jar of washed yeast in the ice box?

Thanks.

Just to throw another idea out there, you could brew a kolsch- low ABV, clean, light and popular.

Yeah, I worry about losing some in the storm but those that survive will make some tenacious beer, no?

After four years our two cascade plants are finally taking off. Used three ounces at flame out last week for a pork roast pale ale. Stuff smells great.

Was never good with numbers. Yes, thousandths, the really small, tiny ones like in spark plug gaps.

I crushed grain with a rolling pin once and it was one of my best beers by the way.

Appreciate the quick reply. Have yet to carb the secondary for a lager and so far, without secondary carbonation, my lagers have been pretty tasty. I usually burp the secondary kegs from...

I used mine right out of the chute and got an incredible jump in efficiency. 50 or so brews, and an award or two later, I haven't touched the setting. I brew on average twice a month. If you're...

I think you'll be fine. I left a kolsch in secondary for a while in a keg and when I transferred it to the serving keg for the final leg, it tasted just like it should. You're way ahead of me on your...

Update

Thought I'd report back on results after making some modifications to my process. Turns out pH is good, water is fine, temp may be partly to blame but the beer seems to be turning out fine...

I've always sanitized the crap out of anything within ten feet of my beer. Clean with PBW and Sanitize with Starsan.

Ward Labs sounds interesting - are they handy here on the internet somewhere?...
