    Whitelabs WLP802 Czech Budejovice

    I was curious of how many generations WLP802 has been taken without failure? I’ve currently got a nice, big pitch in a Czech 10° Pilsner, and was planning on using the slurry for two more beers. It got me thinking how many beers can I actually swing from the original pitch of yeast. Thank you!

    Fermentation help!

    Hi everyone, on Saturday I performed my first all grain brew. It’s a smash American pale ale, and I substituted the US – 05 yeast for Kveik. This is a 5 gallon brew. The first 24 hours brought A LOT of action. More action than I’ve ever seen from another yeast. However, less than 36 hours...

    Hi, I added in my wort and topped it to 25l (I had to add ice cubes and wrap a wet towel around the fermenter to cool it down before adding the yeast) I had the lid open for about 5 hours as I let it cool down before adding the yeast at the correct temperature. Is this okay to do? Will it...

    Can I make beer in fermenter whilst wet after cleaning?

    Hey, Just wondering if I am able to start making my next batch straight after cleaning with chemicals and then rinsing. So whilst the fermenter is still wet. Or do I need to wait until the fermenter is dry? Thanks!

    First days of fermentation

    So within 8 hours of fermentation I had c02 bubbles every 1 second, and through out that same day. The next day I had c02 every 2 seconds.

    disparity between wine makers and beer makers

    I'm noticing that there's a lot more resources and conversations and clubs centered around brewing beer than making wines and mead. I mean look at this forum, there's 18 categories for beer brewing and then one each for wine and mead. Why is this? Surely the disparity between people in general...
