All Grain Brewing / Re: Storing Bulk Grain

Those Gamma vittles vaults look pretty nice but a bit spendy too. I use Gamma lids (looks exactly like what is on that vault) but is snaps on top of a regular 5-7 gallon bucket. Perfect air-tight storage for $8 plus the cost of your bucket.

Recently picked up 9 of the seasonal beers I can get here in portland.  Tried 6 of them so far, this one is, well, the most non-descript.  The ninkasi (double alt) is a great malty beer and the SN celebration is (of course) a great hoppy beer. but the snow day was quite unremarkable and bland.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Problem with attenuation

Was your starter from a fresh vial/smackpack or was it from reused slurry? If reused slurry, how many generations? I've had yeast start to finish high after 5-6 generations and was probably caused by less than optimum oxygenation and/or nutrients.

Hey Pinski, I see you're in Portland, me too. Where are you getting your yeast?

Careful with those stainless steel mesh ball scrubbies. I've read that these come very dirty with oil and gunk from the manufacturing process.  The Copper 'chore boy' scrubbies are supposedly free of grease.

Picked up a lb of Simcoe at Steinbarts in Portland last week, for $20. Not sure of their shipping charges, nor whether they had Warrior, but might be worth a shot. also has simcoe for ~$26.

Can't comment on your recipe, but as far as the yeast goes, for me it was not finicky at all. Made a Best Bitter, went from 1.043 to 1.008 in ~10 days from a 3L starter. It was kept at ~65F the whole time and it finished out no problem.
