« on: July 17, 2015, 04:36:53 AM »

Yeast and Fermentation / maiden voyage white labs pure pitch
« on: July 17, 2015, 03:33:41 AM »
using WLP001 pure pitch today for first time. as instructed, one pouch is supposed to be enough to pitch directly into wort with OG of 1.070 or lower. my APA is 1.050 OG and the yeast pouch was produced June 28th.

Throwing caution to the wind and following white labs guidance- no starter!   

i will  follow up with results.

General Homebrew Discussion / what to do at 2:00am....brew of course
« on: April 11, 2015, 05:47:57 AM »
made the mistake of having very hot tacos last night. 2am heartburn from hell and couldn't go back to sleep.

so, figured why not start the brew day around 3am. all done and yeast pitched by about 8am for my northern german pils.

now i think nap time is calling  ::)
