Noted. Just trying to use up a packet sitting in the fridge. Maybe its time for another batch of Walter Wit...

IIRC Kölsch is lagered at 40oF for 4 weeks. 45oF will be fine.
This (as well as the other info). I lager in the keg under CO2 at 38ish. My last Kolsch is almost ready (right at 4 weeks lagering). Alas, it's not quite to style since I got a little extra bitterness and flavor out of the hops I used (they were out of Spalt, so I used Hallertau). It actually comes off as a Kolsch/German Pils hybrid. I was even considering entering it as a Pils on a lark.
I am curious if there is a white labs or wyeast equivalent to T-58. This yeast worked very well for me in a wit but not so well in a saison. It's so hard to find a good description on this yeast and I don't know what styles it is best suited for. It seems like a just a basic belgian yeast...
Haven't heard a direct equivalent, but if it's good in a wit, not so much so in a saison, then WY3944 (Witbier) would be a good start.
anyone know the potential yield on red x...1.035ish?
Yeah, gotta give breweries like Stone And SN credit for the foresight to flex with changes in tastes and styles. That's staying ahead of the game IMO.
This may very well be my favorite 'session IPA' up to this point.
+2, I really liked it as well.
Good for them; still like the versatility of the can.
The marketing is silly, which is too bad. I think "throwback" is supposed to refer to the fact that you can throw a few back --- down your gullet---and still be able to row the boat.
I thought at first it would be some old British IPA
After years of messing with vinyl tubing and 3/8" hose barb to 3/4" female swivel garden hose adapters, I broke down and purchased a set of 6' long washing machine hoses. I cut the female hose connector off of one end of each hose, slipped cut ends over the ends of the copper tubing, and stainless steel band clamped the hoses in place. I have never had to adjust the clamps, and I can run the cold water top-down or bottom-up (I prefer to run the cold water top-down because heat rises).
If you still want to go the 3/8" hose barb to 3/4" female swivel garden hose fitting route, the Watts part number is LFA-683. The fitting is almost as expensive as the pair of washing machine hoses linked above, and the washing hoses are heavy duty compared to vinyl tubing.
Pretty sure my pre-chiller uses 3/8" compression to 1/2" female pipe thread. I then use a 1/2" MPT to 3/4" garden. Maybe the market is too small to create a single fitting, or maybe they exist, just not at Lowes Depot.
