    northern brewer hefe -all grain

    no, trub was left behind from the brew. this is purely yeast fallout from the fermentation. this is the first wheat beer I have done, so I am just curious of that much yeast is normal. I did do a starter on the yeast and I understand this is a pretty crazy active yeast. plus Hefe is supposed...

    Just another control panel
