General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Making a Yeast Starter From 2-row
« on: February 21, 2018, 11:25:54 AM »
I just tossed it in the fridge to settle and step it up again for my lager. I couldn't believe how fast it started to work, within 2 hours. Very light compared to DME. It was done in just over 24 hrs. which is fast compared to DME. I did make 2.5 gallons and put the left over wort in a santized container in the fridge for around 3 days until I use it to step up my WLP810.

I just ordered some stuff online and assumed our local Brew Your Own would have some DME. They no longer sell supplies of anything. Yea, a city of 75,000 and not one place that sells DME. I am using my wort right away and not freezing it.

What about my water profile? No hops though? Minimum on everything?

I can't find any DME in my city, so I am thinking on making a yeast starter from 2-row. Can I use well water and don't worry about my PH? I don't have a PH meter. Or do what I do when I make beer, Bru'n Water, RO water with brewing salts.

I have 13 gallons of IPA on tap at the moment. Done for awhile. Now it is time to brew lagers until late summer. Then it is time to brew, well you guessed it.

curtdogg, my water profile is the same as yours. I don't plan on changing it either. I personally like slightly more specialty malts in this style of beer to mellow out the high hop bitterness. I use honey malt, munich and biscuit, not all in the same recipe though.

I don't own a PH meter and don't plan on getting one. I use Bru'n Water and am happy with the results so far.

My problem is we don't have one. The nearest store is 2 hours away and my favourite store is 3 hours away. Online only :(

Did you check the current gravity?

I tried once or twice with my wine filter and all I got was foam. I lost more beer that I thought I should, so I quit doing it. Gelatin for me works in a few days and the results are the same.

Ingredients / Re: Help me buy my hops for the year

I just bought 5 lbs. of Chinook ( 12.3% AA ) here in Canada for $59.00. Yes, lots of grapefruit and some pine. Great for dry hopping.
