Chinook seems to be a love it or hate it dry hop addiction. I enjoy it as a dh, but I'll use 1 oz Chinook, and 3-4 oz of a mix of citra, Amarillo, and simcoe.

11 grams is most common for a 5 gallon batch, but that all depends on the starting gravity and ale/lager.

Slowly lower that to 68-70 for 2 days or so, and then let it warm up on its own. 75 is a little warm to start with that yeast. IMO the best flavor come from starting at 68 and ending at 78.

That's why. I decant almost every starter.

I wouldn't even start to worry until you get to the 72 hour mark. What temp do you have it at?

60 is fine for fermentation temps, but that strain works well at 55 too. IMO a great kolsch comes from lagering near freezing for about 1 month. You can do the lagering in the keg or bottle. Leave...

Yup. Attach the probe to the side of the carboy, and wrap it with bubble wrap. That will give you pretty accurate temps.

There was no need to make a starter using 2 packs of 05. Just rehydrate and they're ready to roll.

Still normal. Its super slow to start, but when it gets going it goes nuts. It took my last BDS from 1.12 to 1.011 in about 1 week.

My octoberfest is in the keg, and will be lagering for the next 4 months. Tastes good, but I agree its not as "clean" as most other German strains. Its good, but not my favorite.

Yessir. That's 8oz starting with 20 mins left in the boil. Gives a ton of aroma and flavor, while keeping the ibus to about 35. My gravity is normally 1.05

No way, decant it. That fermented starter will taste awful fermented at 80. You don't want that in the finished product.
