I like running my mill by hand. I feel more connected to the grain. I go slow and just really enjoy it, plus I feel like it does a better job than when I have used a drill. That said 1000+ lbs here....

Help me select a yeast

I really like using a clean, medium high attenuating American Ale yeast. I've never used WyYeast 1056, but I am very familiar with WL 001 and US 05. They are all very well suited for the American...

Starsan is a no rinse cleanser. It won't hurt anything. If you're worried this will happen again someday then you should use vodka in your airlock.

Making recipes is my favorite part of the hobby. I've really stripped things down with most beers and focus on simple grain profiles and only 2-3 types of hops.

If you do BIAB you want it as fine as possible, if you do a traditional mashing technique too fine can be a real problem. With batch sparging I think you can get a stuck sparge. With fly sparging you...

All grain is great and really fun but definitely look at managing your yeast. Both pitch rates and temperature. Hitting a full boil is a great next step, less kettle caramelization and better hop...

Don't overthink a SMaSH beer. Keep the OG at a reasonable and target a firm but reasonable bitterness. You want balance so you can taste the malt and hops. Simple, simple, simple.

I enjoy Yerba Mate. I often just make it like tea though. I feel so amped up when I drink it, its great when stuff needs to get done physically. I struggle to sit still after drinking it.

So if I reduce the temp to 180 then whirlpool should I increase the boil hops to achieve an appropriate bitterness level? I can use my RIMS system to maintain a constant temp at 160, 180 or whatever.

Step mashing is a good idea because it will help efficiency and help dry the beer out. You can also dry it out by mashing 148-150 for 75 minutes. I think your recipe looks much better now. Personally...

1 lbs crystal, 1 lbs flaked wheat and .75 lbs carafoam is going to leave your beer overly sweet, even with a high hopping rate. Using wheat in an IPA I dont think you want to exceed 5% crystal. If...

I just kegged a batch with 3711 a couple hours ago. 1.042 to 1.002. That yeast is just very hungry. It is so easy to use and I really like the flavor. I hope the beer is great for you.
