I have tried and failed twice to wash my yeast. I will give it another go this winter when I get a decent yeast. I won't be washing and saving the cake from this US-05 probably.

I'm referring to ingredients only. But yeah, I use a lot of propane also.

Love my natural gas quick disconnect. No propane runs and the cost per BTU is less. Actually its pretty much impossible to tell on the nicor bill.

My electric is .05 kwh. I figured a full brew day is well under $1.00 closer to .25

Still waiting on confirmation that a account has been setup. Emailed them yesterday so hopefully I'll hear back today.

Ok so maybe I'm reading something wrong but when I check the spreadsheet Bill is the only one who has placed an order? For the amount of chatter on this thread that can't be correct, is it? Am I missing something?
