I think I heard a few here mention the Brooklyn brew shop kits? Just went into Bevmo to grab a hard cider and they had bourbon dubbel recipe kits on sale here for $5 so I picked one up. But if you guys say you tried one and its good, I may swing back by.

then, i wash, rinse, and re-sanitize, the yeast tube.

another thing i did, is i weighed an empty white labs tube (51g), and a full white labs tube (90g), giving the net weight of the content (39g).

so, i know that when mrmalty says I need .3 or .4 of a tube of yeast, what the total net weight of the yeast and tube i'm pitching will be.

so, if i want .4 (40%) of a tube, then it's (3.9g * 4) + 51 = 66.6 g (rounded up to 67g).

much more precise, at least for me, than using the old eyeballs.

This.. absolutely this
I have not had any luck with fining agents an this small of a batch. just let her sit a week and clear. The yeast also seem to keep working and clean up after themselves this way, leaving a "cleaner" taste

Someone was talking about SMaSH brews? Has anyone extensively played with marris otter? I have done a couple of smash brews with it and a couple of beers, I really love the results. Really considering lagering it sometimes soom.

I may do this now. I used dry yeast up until last night but that was a 25 Plato barleywine so one vial was the proper pitching rate haha.
