    My shamelessly cheap $12 DIY stir plate

    Here is my stirplate I made using a watch box that I never used. Spinning a 5L starter with a 2 inch bar also it works with a 2L starter. At higher than half speed it will throw the bar on the 5L.

    Efficiency Crash - Pilsener Malt

    check your crush some malts have different grain size and you may need to adjust your mill for different malts. I recently changed my gap to .028 inches, have to recirculate more but its a better crush.

    Purging with C02 to prevent oxidation

    yes, but as you can see in the video co2 is heavier than air and pours out when you pour out the water. It might work somewhat, air is going to be sucked in when the water flows out, but purging with co2 from a hose would be better. I just run a hose into my vessel and turn the gas on, I like...

    I had a similar experience with wy2007 lager yeast, I poured off the murky liquid, it still had some white yeast that settled out in the fridge, then i discarded the darker layer and saved the bottom white layer and recombined the two saved layers when I pitched. I'm sure you will be fine...

    Why do yeast produce alch and then co2?

    The alcohol content of the beer does not affect the carbonation level because the co2 during fermentation is escaping. After the beer is finished you bottle with a measured amount of sugar and that determines your carbonation level. Belgian quad is refermented in the bottle not primary...

    Why do yeast produce alch and then co2?

    just searched and corn sugar is dextrose , d-glucose, or glucose. I didn't know it had multiple names. The type of yeast or bacteria has an effect on the amount of co2 release. Saccharomyces cerevisiae (regular beer yeast) vs others like brettanomyces.

    First Lager - Two Questions

    Read about Narziss fermentation for lagers. You probably wont need a blow off, lagers are less vigorous than ales.

    Anyone ever get a yeast bath?

    I usually don't use wyeast but I just picked up a pack of 1056 today. I was trying to smack it in the car before driving home and it wasn't cooperating. I found it easier to just find the pouch and squeeze it with 2 fingers and pop it like that, worked like a charm.
