    I've read a ton of debate between pitching a starter at high krausen or letting it finish out then cold crashing the night before or whenever and decanting. I'm wondering - because I am using the Brulosophy method of yeast harvesting which I'll do and crash tonight and pitch it tomorrow - my...

    Temp drop from HLT to MT - difficulty with mash temps

    I imagine this will just end up being a trial/error solution, but I thought I'd see if anyone had some thoughts/intel on this issue. I just recently put together a cooler HLT with a controller electric heater (love it btw, highly suggested!) Generally I heat the water up around 163-168...

    Dry hopping cider that will sit for 6 months

    I'm pitching a cider tomorrow with Wyeast 3711 and plan on leaving it for 5-6 months. I'd like to give dry hopping a shot as well, any recommendations on when to do that dry hopping? Right after fermentation ends for a few days or right towards the end of letting it sit, close to bottling?

    How to proceed with old lager yeast

    Read through all the threads I could find about underpitching lager yeast and couldn't quite find the answer I was looking for. I have an old (end of June) WLP838 vial for an Oktoberfest, I made a gallon starter for it but the strip of healthy yeast appears pretty thin and I know lagers need...
