The rule of thumb for refrigerated storage is 25% viability loss per month, so after five months it should be in the neighborhood of 25% viable - 25 billion cells left in the pack.
Looking at Dave's posts - he seems to have the Mark of the Beast!
...Or you could just tell him the truth...tell him nicely, that he just about kicked the keg on his last few visits.
It all comes down to what you like flavor wise in your beer.+1000
This is just silly...why any homebrewer, this day and age, fly sparges is beyond me.Because my system is set up for it and it's really easy and works well. Are those good enough reasons?
Since it's really about getting your tea-totalling boss f'd up. Make a regular beer, wave an avocado over the top (hell, get it wet in the wort, what do I care) and then tell him it's guacamole beer. How's he gonna know it's not???
Just got in some 2012 Magnum so I think the plan is .75oz Magnum at 60, 3oz Cascade at flameout and 2oz dry hop. Thanks!
You don;t want any of that wonderful cascade flavor? Just aroma? I'd use one of those oz's divided somewhere between 30 and 10 minutes. For me this would be more balanced than just bittering and aroma additions.
