If I were doing this, I would make a champagne starter with carefully measured "golden syrup", well oxygenated and fermenting stongly. I have never used a liquid champagne and am interested in your...

Yes! It's all a gamble! I think people with good sanitary practices give up on a strain because they are worried about ruining a day of brewing. I subscribe to the school of thought that your yeast...

Alot of these thoughts depend on whether you are filtering or conditioning in your keg. I "fast force carb" all of the beer that I filter. I force carb it in a few minutes and then enjoy it! I like...

I have bottled with Champagne yeast with success. I'm not sure if that's what you're after or not. It depends on the style and what you're going for, but a different yeast at bottling time can dry a...

You can bottle directly out of a keg. Carbonation will mostly stay in suspension when everything is cold - beer should be 0 degrees, bottles too and do it in the garage in the north. It will be a bit...

I'm in. If there's not a lot of interest, maybe Yooper could spin the BJCP style wheel and pick 2 or 3 styles that we have to make. When is this, btw? And who sells those BJCP style wheels in Canada?...

I rack after 3-5 days based on hydrometer. I think there's a theory that you do not want to harvest your quickly-flocullating yeast that has fallen out of suspension in these first days. You want the...

Did you trim the dip tube a bit? If not, you may get a foamy pour off the bat with the sediment. Mmmm.

You will definitely get better growth this year. Dig a big root ball around the plants and you'll be good. But even if you just got the minimum root ball, I'd say you will get way better growth this...

I visited England and discovered they make wreaths with hops! But they keep the cones on the vines, so you don't get to brew with them. But it is an awesome experience to enter a room that has a hops...

Get big pots! You really want to plant these, I think, because they root like mad! Really, the roots spread out like 5 feet in the first couple of years. And that's what makes them flourish in latter...

I'm interested to know why you prefer the bottled. The force carbonation can add a harsh flavour, imho. I am interested to get a filter, which some people use as part of their CO2 setup because CO2...

I may be wrong with that partial boil statement. I read that partial boils leave residual sweetness, but don't have any experience. As ifishsum suggests, the dry yeast is a good, inexpensive test. I...

You shouldn't ferment outside of the recommended range. You will risk off-flavours. A lower temperature is the culprit for stuck fermentation, so that's not likely your problem, anyway. When I...

You don't need any more yeast. Did you do a full boil or partial boil? If you did a partial boil, you may just have a bunch of residual sugar that is not going to ferment out. Make sure you are...
