Yeast and Fermentation / Re: How old is too old S-04?
« on: June 19, 2016, 06:48:59 AM »
I'm getting ready to pitch a packet of Fermentis S-04 into a 1.045 20L batch and I just noticed that the date is June 2015. Oops. One year past the expiration. Mr. Malty says I'll need 72 packets of this stuff. I'm using production date of June 2013. What do you think? Pitch it anyway?

I have a fresh K-97 to use in a pinch, but I was hoping for a more Englishy beer.
Most likely its fine if it's been treated well (stored at room temp or cooler). I would use it. You have a good back up plan.

My homebrew.

I took 30 days off earlier this year. I had 2 homebrews lagering and ready to go at the end of the tunnel.

My current favorite is a homemade pale lager. But that's probably because it is so hot outside.

Pale Lager
3G batch, 1046 OG, 1008 FG
100% Briess Brewers Malt
22 IBU Warrior @ 60
WLP838
Yellow full water

I wanted to try a 100% Briess Brewers Malt beer to judge this malt for myself. Gotta say the beer is delicious. Pleasant malt flavor. No strong flavors just mellow malt goodness.

I have used Briess in lots of recipes but never 100%. I have also used Rahr many times and like it too. Next up a 100% Rahr 2-row beer, after I keg the 100% Weyermann Pils beer currently in the fermenter :)

Good lookin brew. I have a SMaSM conditioning now. (Rahr 2 row + Simcoe + Bry-97). I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll look this ^^^^ good.

Dwayne, we need to get together for happy hour. I am at Blue Pants tonight. Trying to complete the Madison County brewery circuit (homework assignment from Keith). Two more after this: Mad Malts and Black Bear. Then there's GreenBus when they open.

This is the beer Jon refers to as pretty and I agree! Cool glass too!
Thanks, Pete & Jon.

Edit: that's a Libbey 9 oz. Puebla tumbler.
A scotch glass for beer!

I stopped. Using Fermcap-S a few years ago. I just stir for the 2 minute period when there is danger of boil over. I have a 7.5g pot for 3.5g of wort so there is lots of head room.

Fermcap-S seems safe from reading the MSDS but keeping it around and remembering to use it is just one more step I care not to bother with.

I think the amount of extra bitterness will depend on how much crystal your going to have in the recipe. Reference point: Celebration Ale has 10% C60 and it has 65 IBU. Celebration is not sweet but you can taste the crystal flavor.

I wouldn't go higher than 10% Crystal.

Speaking of safety, what do people do to avoid tripping on the tubing going from propane tank to burner? I have phobia of tripping on that and turning over my boiling kettle onto my feet and legs or me if I fall after tripping.

I try to remember to never step over that tubing but every now and then I catch myself having just done it.

Couldn't help but post this pic. This Stone AB-ish beer is really,really good. Truthfully, it's more drinkable and at 8%abv, just crazy good (and sneaky). Ken's pic was darker, mine lighter, real color probably in the middle. Pic is pretty decent.


Looks delicious.

But, if that beer falls of that ledge...
