I'm about to brew a Baltic Porter recipe straight from Zymergy Sept./Oct.. I recommend the article.

Is DMS an issue with extract?
Don't think so.
Ah the questions are endless it seems... and I read the Yeast book!
Anyway, if I make a 1.5 liter starter wort and pitch a smack pack into it, will it result in a higher yeast count than if I make a 1 liter starter wort and pitch the same smack pack into it?
Yes it will. If you're not using a pitching rate/starter size calculator like the one on Mr Malty, YeastCalc, or Brewer's Friend, I highly recommend it - especially if you're brewing a lager.
I'm not sure what you're planning for the batch size/gravity of the lager you're brewing, but for a 5-gallon batch of an average gravity lager you're probably looking at a starter size in the 2-3 liter range to get up to the pitching rates you want.
I just need the single anyway. I cant find any reviews on this item. Would you say Danby is a good brand? I dont mind spending money but I hate spending it and being disappointed with what I bought.
Are they any good? Would one be worth $200 more than a magic chef? Is the beverage factory a repudable dealer?
Well? Have ya?
Mine will be in my basement where the temperature is a constant 68 degrees year round. I wonder if that will make it stay cool easier. Does yours run 100% of the time to stay at 40 degrees?
