    Secondary Fermentation Temperature

    The White Labs website states the California ale yeast has a optimum fermentation temperature og 68-73°F. I was just shooting for the middle. What benefits would I get from a lower fermentation temperature? And is that just for a steam beer?

    Secondary Fermentation Temperature

    I brewed something similar to Anchor Steam using WLP001 California Ale Yeast without a starter. My mash temperature was a little high at 157, I failed to sufficiently aerate to wort prior to pitching the yeast. The primary fermentation temperature was a constant 70 degrees. My OG was 1.060...

    Did I boil too long? 80 minutes

    Thank you for your replies! I added my last two hop additions with 15 and 5 minutes remaining in the boil. I pitched the yeast exactly 12 hours ago @ 70 degrees in a plastic bucket and now I'm just hoping to see some activity soon.

    Did I boil too long? 80 minutes

    Hello, I ended up boiling my wort from 6.5 to 4.5 gallons over 80 minutes. What impact will this have on the finisheded product? I added half a gallon of bottled spring water to the cooled wort to compensate for the volume boiled off. Did I make a big mistake by adding and/or not boiling the...
