    2.75 gallon batches - Yeast pitch advise??

    Pale malt, white wheat, flaked wheat, table sugar, US-05. Fermentation temp averaged around 69 F. I may be just over sensitive, I will report back after it's carbonated.

    2.75 gallon batches - Yeast pitch advise??

    I have 2.75 gallons going into the fermenter for a final volume of 2.5 gallons in the keg. I have brewed two batches on this new little system I have and both times my wort has just tasted kinda "off". Both batches have been around 1.050-1.060 gravity and I have pitched 5 gallon yeast packs in...

    Bucket fermenter contamination - still able to use?

    Yes! I am doing 2.5 gallon batches and I pitched the whole packet of yeast (for 5 gallons) at 74 F. Next time I'll try and look at the yeast pitch calculators although I don't have any experience with them.

    Bucket fermenter contamination - still able to use?

    Thank you all for your inputs. To answer some questions, the beer was a kviek IPA and Ive had some friends use this yeast and the fermentation smells did not come out nearly as bad as this. I tried a simpler yeast (US05) that I am familiar with and made a simple beer to test my fermenter...

    Bucket fermenter contamination - still able to use?

    I don't know if I had a contamination or not, I'm still trying to figure that out. If I did, would my bucket fermenter still be able to be used? It has only been used once and the first time I used it my beer reeked of sulphur and tasted terrible after fermentation. There are no scratches on the...

    Hornindal Kveik Yeast - Rotten Eggs and slow to start

    Do you recommend using starters even with a yeast pack meant for 5 gallons for 2.5 gallon batches?

    Hornindal Kveik Yeast - Rotten Eggs and slow to start

    Sorry let me correct myself. Not "rotten eggs", just eggs - like sulfur. I'm about to start putting a space heater on it and give it a good stir. Hopefully that will make something happen. I appreciate the input. Maybe get some yeast nutrient from my LHBS.

    Hornindal Kveik Yeast - Rotten Eggs and slow to start

    I've brewed a 2.5 gallon 1.061 OG NEIPA wort and pitched the Omega yeast packet straight in to the fermenter with no yeast starter. 2 days later there is little to no activity and I opened my fermenter and there is no krausen, but there are CO2 bubbles. It also reeks of rotten eggs. It is...

    dry hopping in the keg - how long is ideal?

    What kind of aroma will I get in about 3-4 days keg hopping? I am trying to fast track a pale ale of mine so I had to dry hop while I am carbonating.

    Adding honey during fermentation

    Does honey prolong the fermentation when adding to the fermenter? If so, how long? Does it need to age like mead?

    Honey instead of honey malt in a NEIPA

    What kind of yeast did you use?

    Honey instead of honey malt in a NEIPA

    Nice! Looks great! Did you add honey straight into the fermenter? I've read mixed opinions on whether you have to pasteurize or not. What was you FG with that beer?

    Honey instead of honey malt in a NEIPA

    I am attempting a double NEIPA this weekend and am using honey to dry it out purposely. I believe the water profile and grain bill will give it enough body. My first attempt at a NEIPA came out great but very low attenuating (SG: 1.06 ; FG: 1.017) in which I wanted a little more heat on it...

    London ESB 1968 - used in IPAs

    Average fermentation temp around 69-70. Maybe need to ferment lower eh? Thanks!

    London ESB 1968 - used in IPAs

    I have used this yeast in a couple of IPAs now and I can't tell if I like it or not. I used it in two dry hopped IPAs and it really overtakes the taste IMO. I know this yeast isn't traditionally used in IPAs but I thought it might work. It has a sweet, slightly spicy, fruity character but it...

    Using Filters to Clear the Brew?

    It isn't worth it at a home brew level. My beers come out very clear with gravity doing its job. I have used a filter before but it was such a hassle. Perform all of the above and you should be fine.

    SMaSH All-Grain 2-row recipe

    Exactly, I'm looking for a hop forward beer that is a little bitter (around 50 IBU) with an awesome fruity aroma. Almost session-IPAish. Something crisp, clean and fruity - hoppy. Any thoughts on yeasts? I have only used US-05 and I know what that tastes like. Maybe want to use something more...

    SMaSH All-Grain 2-row recipe

    I'm pretty sure there are no adjuncts. Purely single malt and hop.
