    Yeast starter propagation steps

    Is there anything wrong with not cold crashing in between yeast propagation steps? I want to take a 750mL starter and add that whole volume into a 2.7L volume of wort (total wort volume 3.5L, or 5X the original starter volume). Ideally I want to aim for the OG of this 3.5L to be ~1.040. Does...

    High FG, what happened?

    I use beersmith2 - and for most other recipes I hit the numbers +- 0.002 pts. I think it must be the mash temperature, I haven't tried to go this high before. lessons learned!

    High FG, what happened?

    I would think it was that much crystal too, but its the same percentage of Yooper's award winning stout. It was definitely supposed to finish high, but more around 1.016...

    Losing pressure on regulator

    Help! I am losing co2 pressure from my set up that uses this regulator ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002QAP6JC/?tag=skimlinks_replacement-20 ) - I lost a whole tank in only one keg, so the leak seems to be very slight. I keep the co2 in the kegerator as i don't have a way to get lines into the...

    Wyeast 2565 Starter problem

    Hey - This is my 3rd time using Wy2565 for a Kolsch. I am following my usual starter procedure of using a 1L starter on a stir plate for 24hrs before pitching. Only this time, I made my starter last night and this morning I see zero activity (no bubbles, or any sign of life). It has been about...

    Imperial yeast A24 fermentation

    Thanks for the heads up. Even after 15 days, the yeast stayed suspended until I transferred to a secondary for dry hopping. It tastes and smells great, though I lost about a 3/4 gallon of beer from the poorly compacted yeast cake!

    Imperial yeast A24 fermentation

    I recently pitched a packet of imperial yeasts A24 (dry hop) strain into a 5 gallon batch of 1.073 og wort. The fermentation took off quickly but now on day 6, the beer looks extremely cloudy and powdery. Is this normal for this strain? It appears as if there is alot of yeast/hop/trub floating...

    Moving to Electric Stove :(

    Are you able to get a 6-7gallom batch boiling on your stove? I’ve heard it was impossible, or is it only painstakingly slow?

    Moving to Electric Stove :(

    Help!!! I will soon be leaving my apartment which has gas burners on the stove and will be going to a new apartment that uses electric coils (gasp).
