Yeast and Fermentation / Harvesting yeast
« on: September 17, 2013, 09:59:06 AM »
How long do I need to wait after harvesting and washing the yeast before I can pitch it into a new batch? I am planning on bottling a batch on Saturday. Can I wash the yeast on Saturday and have it ready for a Sunday brew? This is my first time harvesting and I know I should use a starter. Could I do that Sunday morning and brew Sunday afternoon?

Lots of questions but I just don't want to screw it up.

Kegging and Bottling / Keg poppets
« on: November 15, 2012, 01:40:54 PM »
I bought a corney keg from my local brew shop and was told to remove the poppets to clean them. I had a heck of a time getting them out and bent one of them slightly. Now when I take the gas line off of the keg it takes a second for the poppet to seal itself. My questions are who removes the poppets to clean them and what is the best say to get them out?
