Thanks mate. I'd switched over to Brewer's Friend, but got annoyed when it told me an Aug 29 packet of wyeast 3068 was 0% viable. Yeastcalc (thanks to you) tells me it should be 28%, which seems...

I wonder if it's the combination of mashing low and fermenting high, or more one of the two? I'm about to brew an ESB with Windsor, I might try mashing close to 60C, and fermenting at 19C to see how...

Interesting...and how does it taste after fermenting that high?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, perhaps I'm leaving it too late before upping the temps. Next time I'll try what you've suggested, and report back. I hope it doesn't change the profile too much...

I agree, but I also find mine are quite clear in the bottle after a few days of conditioning, even after only two weeks in the fermenter.

Why will it be a month and a half? Every wheat beer I've ever brewed has reached final gravity within around 5 days. That includes those I did at higher temps that reached 1012 type FG's. I...

Yes, I was wondering if it might be an extract related issue. I am doing full volume partials and small volume AG brews for my pale ale style beers, but I like the result I get from CBW Bavarian...

No, sorry, what I mean is I'm alone in having a 62F ferment and a 1019 finish. I too have upped the ferment temps into the low 70's, for as long as 10 days, and it hasn't budged the gravity at all.

Hmmm, seems I might be alone here. I have also fermented with 3068 at 74F, and while the hefe was good, I much prefer the result with the 62F ferment.

3068 low temp ferment finishing high

I've done a number of extract hefe and dunkelweizen brews with Wyeast 3068 over the last few months, since discovering that fermenting my brews at 17C (62.6F) gave me the exact flavour profile I was...

Breakup of a huge rhizome ball?

The last post reminded me to follow this up. I'm surprised I forgot, as the 17C (62.5F) fermentation of my latest dunkel with 3068 turned out absolutely brilliant, if I may say so myself! The taste...

Test your hydrometer in room temperature water and make sure it shows close enough to 1000. Once you're happy it's accurate, it does not lie! Take your OG, minus your FG, and divide that by 7.46. ...

I've tried wb-06 in hefe's and dunkelweizens, and fermented in the mid 60's and mid-70's, but all my wb-06 brews come out slightly tart. The ones fermented at higher temps get banana aromas, but no...

75 degrees is NOT too warm to pitch at, especially with kit yeast. Kit yeast can survive much worse!

It's a little too warm for optimal fermentation results, sure, but pitching at 75 then...

Anything's possible with an airlock. I've had them bubbling away on weizen brews in 10 hours, other brews might take up to 2 days. And I've had more than a few brews never bubble an airlock even...

Fermentis WB-06 above 23 (73.4) degrees?

I know it's a controversial yeast, but I like what wb-06 does for my hefe's and dunkel's. So far i've only done fermentations with it between 19.5 and 21 degrees (67-70). I haven't really noticed a...

I too am worried that you haven't posted any hydrometer readings. Have you taken any? Otherwise there's no real way to tell when your brew has finished fermenting.

I can tell you that 16 days...
