Yeast and Fermentation / Lager yeast
« on: Today at 06:26:27 AM »
What lager yeast is available in dry or liquid that works well in warmer temps.  I may have a difficult time getting my carboy down into the 40's low 50's.

Thanks BV

Any Dry yeast recommendations for a Belgian Blonde?  I've only used liquid up to this point.

Yeast and Fermentation / Yeast flavour
« on: November 03, 2015, 03:37:04 PM »
I have some yeast stored that I used for a holiday ale.  This beer was spiced quite a bit.  If I use this yeast after stepping it up with a neutral wort, should I be concerned about transferring some of the spice flavour to the new brew?

All Grain Brewing / Rice
« on: October 26, 2015, 02:01:17 AM »
When rice is mentioned in a recipe, should the weight be cooked rice or dry? And am I looking at a sparging nightmare? The recipe calls for .75 rice and .75 flaked maize. Of course I would use rice hulls. It also mentions mashing at 135 degrees for 30 minutes and 160 for 30. Never used a mash schedule with these highs and lows.

Only used this yeast in my bottling bucket for high gravity Belgians. Never used this in my primary fermentor.  Any recipe ideas?



Yeast and Fermentation / Lagering advantage
« on: May 20, 2015, 08:23:16 AM »
Does there come a point when lagering becomes ineffective? I have five gallons at 32 degrees for three months now. Is there any benefit to leaving it in the fridge longer?

Ingredients / hop shot

Hop Shot seems to be in some recipes for IPA's. Northern Brewer would not disclose what hops are used in this resin. Anyone happen to know?

Looking to brew as close to this dogfishhead IPA as possible.  Any ingredient ideas out there?


Yeast and Fermentation / Lagering

I brewed two 5 gal batches of a lager using wyeast 2278. They were in primary for 14 days between 45 and 52 degrees. Batch #1 has been in secondary for 37 days between 34 and 44 degrees. Batch two has been in secondary for 9 days at the same 34-44 degrees. Today the weather is getting warmer here in the NE and today both batches are up to 52 degrees with the weather forecast for more warm air. Do I need to bottle these brews asap or have the previous cold temps already done their thing.
