Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lactobacillus and starsan

I'm sure you are fine. Unless you unloaded undiluted starsan into the airlock it's doubtful the volume of solution that was sucked back had any meaningful effect on the ph of the starter.

All Grain Brewing / Re: 50:50 or 60:40 Wheat to Vienna for Hefeweizen?

I bet it will make a nice Hefeweizen.  My jefe last summer was just wheat and pils and although it was good, I highly it could've had  some more malt character.  I bet the Vienna would've done the trick.

Thats pretty clever

Wait, KBS= Kentucky Beard Stout, right?

I have a hunch that Wy2112 would be a very good strain choice for making an IPL.

In my experience 2112 ferments very clean at the low-end of its temperature range around 58°F. Some people say it gives a fruity character but I have not found this to be true- again, I ferment  at the low end.  It does leave a lot of residual maltiness in the finished beer so I don't know if it would be good for an IPL.

you just hope its a "beard or nose hair"  :o

as stated, separate pouch containing yeast from outside packaging....all should be well. which yeast is it? curious on your brew and what you think. going starter or no starter?

Doing a "breakfast stout."

I did a 1.2L starter with two pouches of wlp 001.  I finished brewing two hours ago and the starter looks like it's probably at high krausen so I'm getting ready to pitch.

Edit: I actually had an OG of 1.075, not the projected 1.079.

Yeah not that worried.  There appears to be two layers of packaging. I just found it funny with all the marketing regarding the new packaging.  They might want to consider some QC on the packaging line.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: 10 Barrel Joe IPA

The lack of comment due to 10 Barrel being owned by the Evil Empire?  Probably not, but I wonder.  Regardless of who makes it it is seriously tasty stuff!  And frankly...  Aw nevermind.

Lol.  Yeah I hear you but good beer is good beer.  AB-INBEV also owns Goose Island which makes awesome Belgian styles and some kind of Barrel aged stout you may have heard of ;). Miller Coors owns Leinenkugel  which has some outstanding beer in the "Big Eddy" line.

I thought 5 at first glance but after closer examination I can't tell.  Just hope your LHBS treated it well and pray to Ninkasi

My rib mop is beer, bacon grease, and bbq.

What's a mop? JK.  IMO good meat just needs some dry rub.  No mop or sauce.  Let the meat flavor shine.

P.S. I'm from KC where everything is allegedly mopped with sauce.

It's Leffe with a little more body and clove.

I had Long Table last night and I thought it tasted like a blond ale.  Very clovey.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: $69 kegs

All of my kegs seem to have that problem. I wonder if there is a fix for it.
Lol. That's hilarious.  Though probably a good thing if your kid is a teenager.

Sounds like a nice profile for an APA.  I can't wait to get my free hops.  I'm eager to get the mail every day.  Hopefully the AHA didn't forget me.  I had trouble renewing my membership online for the second year in a row.
