    Can I wash Cider yeast instead of making a starter?

    Howdy all, I wanted some feedback while I think through some things! I've got probably 50-60 brews under me, and I'm feeling pretty good about the brewday process, but I'm still quite a novice when it comes to yeast. I've recently gotten a stir plate/beaker but i've never made a real starter...

    Did I mess up my first lager?

I can hear that there's pretty active fermentation going on but I'm...

    "universal" poppets?

    Thanks all for the feedback! I was surprised at the hesitance b/c this page seemed so warm to them. Has anyone tried them and found them wanting? @renthispace- Here are the four I am considering (least being #4 and top choice being #1) although I may yet be convinced not to go with the...

    "universal" poppets?
