It doesn't matter. If you use good brewing technique you will get a great beer with all grain or extract. Make sure the extract (esp LME) is as fresh as can be.

I also honestly don't use any calculator anymore. I know I want 6G at the end of the boil and I always mash with 7.75-8G strike water. Works every time - but I usually brew in the 1.045-56 range.

I routinely use a 1G glass jug for starters, but not small ones like 1L. I actually tend to use 1/2G growlers for 1L, anything bigger gets the 1G jug.

I'm also surprised about Shea and johnson. I guess Shea should have stayed put in Dallas. Johnson was in great form in SEA.

It's called a secondary fermentation - but it's not. It's just a clarifying step (unless it wasn't finished fermenting when you transferred, but it may have).

As a clarifying step, the temp isn't...

Grains from NB are top quality. I routinely get 70% with BIAB and great flavor - but I grind my own. I suspect your grind is off.

Submersible heating element vs drilling

Also consider induction heating if it's a magnetic pot. I don't have one, but have been thinking about heading in that direction. Price is in the ball lark of the keg kits thing (cheaper) and seems a...

I like the idea of bigger, but if you want to do it right the first time I'd go 5000. You need that for lagers. That having been said, 1g growlers are more than fine and are waaaay cheaper but you...

Kolsch is a beer where the yeast defines the style - this malt bill with 001 will be more like a blond ale, or cream ale or the like. It will be a fine beer, but not a kolsch

Regardless of the malt used, for a saison you are trying to get maximum fermentability to get it dry. I would say 145-148 for 90 mins. Others will surely have other opinions.

I guess it's my insecurities, but if don't attenuate as I hope I blame process (mash temp, oxygenation, yeast handling etc) more readily than I blame the yeast strain.

Juan - thanks for the thoughts. Yes, I have watched the beer in the line do this. The lines are on top of the keg, so I guess the temps might be variable. I will get a fan and see if it helps.

The flow is very slow, a trickle is a good description. I don't have a fan - do you think its needed if I don't have a tower? I just coil up the lines on top of the kegs.

Thanks for your help.
