    Starter for White Labs WLP775 English Cider Yeast?

    I have some White Labs WLP775 English Cider Yeast, it's been in the fridge for 6 months. I should make a starter to use this I assume right? I've made edwort's recipe previously using montrachet dry yeast, wanted to try this stuff, but just am getting around to it now. If I do a starter...

    Using cider instead of apple juice, any differences in process?

    I made a batch of edwort's apfelwein and it was really good, but the champagne like flavor was really the part that I would like to get around. I bought some white labs liquid english cider yeast. Last time I used apple juice from aldi's, 2lbs brown sugar, and montrachet. This time I'd like to...

    Regular over/under fridge/freezer that I'm turning into my kegerator. Keezers sound nice, but I already had this one setting around. Now I'm just seeking opinions about how I should place my faucets. How far apart should they be? I'm putting in just a single right now, but plan on later...

    Straight from primary to bottling bucket - How do you avoid trub?

    Ok, I dumped my wort into the primary without staining. Some people said to strain, many said no need, so I just dumped it. Anyway if I plan to go straight from my primary to bottling bucket (no secondary), what technique should I use to avoid transferring the junk at the bottom? Just a matter...

    Any suggestions for adding lemon to my wheat beer?

    I brewed the AHS anniversary lemon wheat. I added 1/8oz of lemon peel at I believe 5 minutes. If I wanted a slightly more lemony aroma would adding a touch of zest after primary fermentation is done be a good idea? Or a bad idea. I know I can just add lemons at serving time, but if reasonable...
