    US-04 stalled?

    Hello all, I brewed a left hand milk stout clone approx. 2 week ago. Today I checked the gravity and it was 1.030. I've never had a yeast stall so I didn't know if this was the case. If it is should I add another packet of yeast, I think i have some us-05 lying around. 7 lbs Pale Malt (2...

    First all-grain/SMaSH

    So with the help of this forum and beersmith, this is what I came up with for my first SMaSH/AG brew, I'm thinking its a cross between a pale ale and IPA. What you guys think, is it too far off the mark. Also, since I am going to start off doing the SMaSH brewing I was thinking about just...

    My Wyeast pack burst, what now?

    So I just got home from the LHBS (2 hours round trip) and I wanted to get a starter going for the first time. I smacked the wyeast pack in the palm of my hand and the package gave way in the corner, spewing yeast and nutrient on the kitchen wall. I would guess that there is probably 1/2 a...
