Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Rehydrated Yeast Shelf Life
« on: February 23, 2013, 10:05:33 PM »
How long do you think you can leave rehydrated yeast out before bad things happen?  I have to go out now for the night and have it in a measuring cup covered with a paper towel on my bar.

Dave

IIRC, the instructions say 30 min.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: When to use a blow off tube
« on: February 23, 2013, 04:55:24 PM »
I start out with a blowoff on every batch.  Not difficult to do and no problem even if you don't get blowoff.

Haha, nice! The legislative deadline to submit proposed bills yesterday resulted in a measure aimed to name brewers yeast the official state microbe of Oregon.

"Rep. Mark Johnson, R-Hood River,introduced House Concurrent Resolution 12, which would designate brewer's yeast the state microbe."

I love this state!

I don't think I'd use it for the primary fermentation yeast as some of you are suggesting.

Wrap each bottle individually in bubble wrap, then put each in a zip lock bag in case it leaks.

Because I don't weight the bags I use for whole hops when I dry hop, I always gently agitate the fermenter a couple times a day.

so like do you comment on it's hair do? maybe smirk when it puts too much sugar in it's coffee?  ;D

Beer Recipes / Re: recommend an oktoberfest yeast

i may give the Hochkurz double decoction a try with the step hot water infusion procedure..seems reasonably straight forward and simple to perform.

I considered that for the doppelbock I'm doing tomorrow.  I think I'm too lazy....er, pragmatic....to really do it, though.  We'll see what tomorrow brings....

Ingredients / Re: Salt calculation
« on: February 22, 2013, 06:12:17 PM »
Steve, do you use spreadsheets?  That's basically all Bru'nwater is.  After you input the water you're using, you play "what if" with mineral additions until you get close to what the profile you've selected says.  It's not too difficult and well worth some time spent learning it.

IIRC, one of the new breweries in town (Falling Sky) has a cereal cooker as part of their German built system.

I had the same thing happen yesterday and clearing my cookies fixed it.  I don't know if that's a universal solution.  I just heard from AHA IT that they're well aware of the issue and hard at work on a fix.
