    Questions on harvesting yeast

    Hi, I recently bought a bottle of Chimay Tripel in the hopes of harvesting yeast to use in brewing future Belgian ales. After making my starter, I kept waiting for some activity until I remembered that some strains of Belgian yeast prefer higher temperatures (my house right now has dipped to 65...

    Food grade confusion

    Thanks for your response. I didn't want to take a chance if saving a buck could lead to any potential health risks. I won't list the stupid things I've almost done before reading the advice on this board!

    Food grade confusion

    Since I started brewing, I've taken to building a lot of my own equipment -- both as a cost saving measure and because it gives me something to do while I'm waiting for various batches to ferment/condition. But I've never been very certain about the designation "food grade," specifically...

    Equipment storage question

    Thanks for your reply! Well, the original plan was to set up the equipment outside on brewing days, and keep everything in the shed when not in use. Is this set up very common? Am I just putting off the inevitable move to a fully outfitted shed for indoor brewing, complete with sink, gas...

    Equipment storage question

    Apologies if this has been discussed in another thread. I've just been kicked out of the kitchen (for reasons, I'm sure, are rather common) and am making the transition to outdoor brewing. Since I have a relatively empty shed, I'd like to move the whole operation out of the house, including the...
