    Which saison yeast?

    3711 is diastaticus but careful cleaning and santization seems to keep it from spreading to other beers 3711 goes down to 1.00sg often for me

    Which saison yeast?

    WLP585 Belgian Saison III is amazing but not in production. I currently have a self made blend with Saison III and 3711 and love it!

    Which saison yeast?

    3711 is great but with any saison you have to ferment warm to get the best of those flavours. I start at 72f and raise to 86f throughout ferment with that yeast. I thought belle saison was kinda a dry equivelent?

    Oxiclean...two years and no infections

    You are supposed to add cold water in to the container you are filling and THEN add the StarSan mixing gently. If you pour water on star san it will foam like a mother [email protected]#$ Oxyclean foams alot when I add hot tap water. I wait for the foam to subside and then fill to the top with more hot water

    Oxiclean...two years and no infections

    I agree that a lot of folks seem to think there is only one way to do things which is bogus. I don't think anyone should be telling you that you HAVE to use certain methods as there are different ways to accomplish everything safely and effectively. Officially Oxyclean is considered a cleaner...

    Hazy IPA vs. NEIPA

    I guess they can be different, here is an excerpt from one article supposedly quoting the new style guideline: Juicy or Hazy Ale Styles: The addition of this trio of styles include representation of what may be referred to as New England IPAs or West Coast Hazy IPAs. The styles will be...

    Hazy IPA vs. NEIPA

    I think the term 'hazy IPA' is just really another name for NEIPA. The hazyness comes from lots of hops in the whirlpool and dryhop

    Harvested Yeast - Should it look like this?

    Flasks have a flat bottom perfect for a stirplate and a narrow top, easy to foil over. All the one gallon fermentors I own have a punted bottom which makes it impossible to keep a stir bar spinning

    I’m tired of making grassy gross IPA’s.

    Had only one American Pale ale I made taste grassy and it was from Old Cascade hops Centennial is a great hop but try mixing it with: Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy, El Dorodo, or other fruity/citrussy hops. I suggest moving most the hops to late in the boil/flameout and add more dry hops Here is an...
