    Lager recipie with Ale yeast?

    i was just reading about this, in brew your own(jan-feb 2006)it says that a 'dirty' lager (one that uses a lager yeast at warmer temps) will taste more like a lager than a super clean ale, or even a sf-lager yeast at lower temps. just use the lager.

    starter yeast

    i agree with sam75...although im all for starters i think its more of an advanced step that i wouldnt recomend doing on your first batch. I would at least have one batch under my belt first to get the feel for brewing. Starters are exactly the same as making a full beer just on a smaller scale...

    Taste vs alcohol

    wow shelves? you must have a prenup...;) i dont think 3/4 lb. of dme would do much but increas the alcohol by 1/2 point (1 lb=1/2 point) i dont know how you got an og of 1.076 from a theoretical of 1.052. since you watered it down to 1.060 that is on the strong side but a good apa og...

    Cool Ferment Timing?

    yeah iwould think that if you pitch a 70 degree starter into a 45 degree wort you could shock the yeast...and i thought that in the initial stage of fermentation the yeast is busy multiplying and scavenging o2 needed, therefore its not producing any flavors untill this first stage is complete...

    Cool Ferment Timing?

    they reccomend you pitch at a warmer temp and when you see signs of fermentation then move it to colder, (even lager yeast that ferment down to 45 degrees are recomended pitched at 70)but you should be fine...it might take alittle longer, next time i recomend using a 3-4 liter starter which...

    Not a bad movie.

    that movie is brilliant..from the building of the birdhouse in the begginning to when they rip the thing down at the end...i dont know about a twist, but there is an unexpected full frontal nudity shower scene towards the end,(the daughter) i think the dad is played by mark harmon, im not sure...

    Need opinion on dryhopping a IIPA....

    use any or all of them...theyre all similar or interchangable, combining them will add some complexity...for 3 g. i would use 1-3 ounces.
