    Anyone want Augustiner lager yeast?

    I purchased a 2.5BBL pitchable yeast pack from BSI and am finishing primary fermentation with it now. Since the only known source for this strain (that I'm aware of) is BSI and you have to have a commercial account and order in 1BBL+ quantities I thought I would see if any locals want some. If...

    Fancy Centennial Blonde

    This recipe is very similar to the original Centennial Blonde recipe which many of us know and love. I wanted a fuller, richer beer so I bumped the gravity and subbed Marris Otter for the base. Doing this required a similar bump to the IBUs so I modified the timing while maintaining the original...

    Moving to sanitary fittings, advice?

    After tearing down my 3-piece ball valves and seeing the gunk that gets stuck in the housing I am ready for something better. The plan is to move to 100% sanitary fittings and butterfly valves.

    Critique my Red please

    I'm planning a brew for a local club only competition and would like some feedback on the recipe so far and some suggestions for the yeast. The target is an Irish Red Ale (or lager) that adheres to the style guidelines. I love EKG and was thinking of using it 100% and a little heavier than...

    Library of FG for commercial beers

    Does anyone know of a library/list of FG for commercial beers? I'm sitting on a diverse cache of commercial beers :ban: and have been testing the FG with my fancy-pants electric refractometer. The results are wide.. Just curious if there is a definitive source out there.
