    Out of control US05

    All good points y’all. Thanks. I think I def will check into calibrating my hydro and therm. And go from there. Stand by for updates. I appreciate all the help this forum provides, ive been brewing consistently for 11 years and occasionally forget that sometimes the simplest solution is the...

    Out of control US05

    I feel like such a Rookie for not making that connection. That has to be the culprit.

    Out of control US05

    I am not mashing out that must be the culprit bc I switched to skipping a mashout step a few months back to increase my sparge water volume. But yes I boil immediately after I runoff

    Out of control US05

    I was expecting a FG if 1.019. So it’s a bit thin. I haven’t tasted it carbed yet, but the sample from the bucket wasn’t hot. It just seems 90%+ average attenuation is high for this yeast, maybe I’m wrong. Idk. I’m going to start mashing higher and see if I can get it to flatten out.

    Last three beers from my notes have been 90%, 93%, and 92% attenuation.

    Out of control US05

    Okay so I just had some safale us05 slurry (harvested from a batch of blonde ale) take an imperial IPA from 1.093-1.009 which is 90% attenuation. Any one know how this is possible? Obviously this isn’t ideal in this instance. As a matter of fact I’ve been getting 85%+ attenuation with us05...

    IIPA No Carbonation - Need Advice!

    6 weeks seems like you should have something....i guess your options are: 1. carefully un cap it all and pour back into the bottling back and add some yeast and rebottle...(personal last choice) 2. add a granule or two of yeast to each bottle and recap (personal second choice) 3. drink flat...

    Accidently blended washed White labs American Ale yeast and Cream ale Blend.

    if you like both the yeast i say go for it, brew something light i would think to be able to get a feel for the "new yeast profile" sounds interesting to me, my feeling would be is one strain will end up being dominant and overpower and overtime push the other aside, but i have no authority of...

    us-05 gone crazy

    so i pitched my house ipa on a cake of us-05 from a blonde ale, i do this all the time, but this time, it attenuated to 84.3% according to my measurements. freak accident? infection? the sample from the bottom of the bottling bucket tasted fine, a bit thinner than usual but than again it was a...

    diluting invert sugar

    okay i made the decision I guess to boil the wort I had left over in my mashtun (36 fl oz) with the 1.96 pounds of invert sugar for 30 min or so and than cool it and pitch it as my belgian strong dark ale is already at high krausen after only being pitched six hours ago:rockin::ban::rockin:!!!!!

    diluting invert sugar

    I made some invert sugar and want to know how much water to diluting it in when making a syrup to feed to the yeast after primary fermentation has taken off? I will be adding roughly two pounds of invert sugar to the primary.

    Carry On Smack Packs / Vials through TSA?

    on a second thought, why not just check it with dry ice and tape up the cooler after checking in for the flight and showing them the contents of the cooler when you go to check the cooler, shouldnt be a problem. another option, have him acquire some commercial examples you could ranch the yeast...

    Carry On Smack Packs / Vials through TSA?

    just a thought, i work for the airlines, and i know dry ice is allowed aboard most transport category aircraft in limited quantities, contact the airline for a straight forward answer, once you talk to them and get their rules worse case scenario would be the tsa forces you to check it which...

    PacMan OK?

    planning on doing a real big American barleywine (1.125), thinking about using pacman:ban:. was wondering if it would be a bad idea to brew a small cream ale (1.045) as a starter for the barleywine, 3 weeks later rack it off (keg/bottle) and pitch the barleywine on the cream ale cake? anyone...
