    Yeast starter for Hefe

    So I brewed a rather standard hefeweizen, and made a simple 1L starter, using Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan. I ended up with about 5G of wort into the fermenter. Added the yeast starter, temperature around 70 degrees, and within 24 hours I had a rather significant blowoff. This stuff is insane. I...

    Mango Saison Learning curve

    So I brewed a Saison about 3 weeks ago, and today I added the mango that I planned on adding. Well I always ferment for 4 weeks in a carboy. Well for some reason I thought the opening on the carboy was larger than it actually is. Hopefully this beer turns out alright as I was forcing...

    Wort chiller question

    Has anyone dealt with NYBrewSupply? Just curious. Looking to buy a wort chiller due to high cost of copper. Seems like it may be about the same money with less hassle. I AM NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS COMPANY. Other suggestions for where to buy would be appreciated. Thanks, Opus X

    Experience with this company?

    Anyone have any experience with NYBrewSupply? http://www.nybrewsupply.com/ They have what appears to be some decent priced wort chillers. With the prices i'm finding for 3/8" copper tubing it seems to make sense to just buy one. For a 3/8" x 25' copper chiller with garden hose adapters...
