    I used two rehydrated packs in a recent German pils, og was 1048. I made this on Saturday and pitched late Saturday evening. It's now Wednesday and I'm only just seeing active fermentation. Has anyone had experience with this yeast and it's lag time? Thanks

    Going home

    I'm headed back to the UK this Sunday, unfortunately it's for a funeral but I have booked my place on several brewery tours whilst I'm there. It's odd to say, but I'm excited, not only for the tours but to see my family again and say my farewells to my nan.

    I was looking at a recipe from Northern Brewer, it was an extract recipe and it required a small amount of biscuit malt ( to be steeped). Looking at this malt online it states that it has to be mashed. So, if it is steeped, will it have no affect? Or just impart colour and no flavour? or both...
