Thank you, I appreciate that.  That makes things lots simpler. 

Yeast and Fermentation / Starter temperature questions
« on: March 11, 2011, 06:03:16 AM »
Being new at stir plates and starters, would someone be so kind as to clue me in on ambient temps when producing starters?  For example, should a lager starter be kept at the same low fermentation temp as the wort itself during fermentation?  Any info would be appreciated.

Interesting!  In south central Utah, it is used to line cattle watering reservoirs.  I to would be interested to know how it is used in beer clarification.

I do.  Usually 2-3 months.

Thanks Denny.  That makes it a real time saver.

tubercle, do you leave the hop bag in the serving keg until finished?

The days of old when they have coolant circulating in the walls of the compartment are largely gone. 

That may be for a fridge but I have a new Sears chest freezer.  All sides and possibly the bottom are loaded with lines.  DO NOT drill!

Caution:  Never drill anywhere into a Sears chest freezer.

Nice, Gary

My mouth is watering and am now a recognized beer snob.

I have been brewing for one year this past Christmas.  I am semi-retired.  I did 32, 5 gal batches and have four taps on the keezer.  Been a fun year sampling all the good beer.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WY2124 at ale temps
« on: December 28, 2010, 08:28:40 PM »
I have used the 2124 a couple of times for ale.  The latest was a 1554 Clone.  It always seems to embark a slight Belgian, fruity flavor to the ale.  Not much and not objectionable, but I am not the biggest fan of a Belgian beers.  I will continue to use it though.  I just used the 1272 in the Fat Tire Clone in the latest Brew Mag.  It should be wonderful.  I recommend trying.

Sunday, I am going to do an AIPA with my son.  Thank you beersk for the 1554 recipe.  It is wonderful.
