    Not even three hours into a starter. Activity already?

    I hope this picture posts ok. Is this normal for a starter to look like this after about 2.5 hours? I did throw in a pinch of yeast energizer.

    Is it possible to pitch too much yeast?

    I'm going to make a starter for an OG of 1.086. The Brewer's Friend calculator said I need 323 billion cells. With a 2L starter I would get 462 billion cells. Is that too much? Does that calculator take into account left over cells needed for priming?

    Harvesting yeast for a Hopslam clone

    I'm going to buy some Bell's Amber Ale to harvest from. I'm just wondering how many I should use? It will be going into a 3L starter.

    Question about air temp in fermenting fridge

    I'm brewing a hopslam clone and recently hooked up an ITC-1000 to our extra fridge. I was thinking of keeping the air temp inside the fridge to about 60 degrees. Should be ok, yeah?

    Help wiring ITC-1000 into refrigerator thermostat

    Wouldn't it just control when the freezer blows cold air into the refrigerator? There are separate controls for the fridge and freezer

    Help wiring ITC-1000 into refrigerator thermostat

    I've been looking through the forums and am having a hard time finding what I need. I'd like to wire an ITC-1000 into a refrigerator thermostat and still be able to keep the freezer on top functional. Can anyone direct me to a diagram or video?

    What would happen if I brewed a batch that was nearly all sugar?
