Yeast and Fermentation / Determining Yeast Viability
« on: January 26, 2013, 02:09:47 PM »
Hey dudes!
I've been thinking about the traditional vital staining that we all use for Saccharomyces, but with the increasing interest in Brettanomyces it's becoming important to check their viability too. Here I checked if the popular methylene blue is any good for that purpose, and it looks like it isn't. Has anyone done this too? What is your experience?

Yeast and Fermentation / How to build a yeast ranch
« on: December 30, 2012, 03:51:58 PM »
I know I posted this already at NB forum, but I just realized there are some who don't go there. This is how I do it and it may be useful/helpful for those who wish to set up a more serious yeast ranch than the standard jars and flasks type.

Yeast and Fermentation / Rehydrating Dry Yeast
« on: October 15, 2012, 06:53:29 AM »
I've always just sprinkled dry yeast into the wort and didn't give it much thought, but started thinking more about it recently. So I tried it with one of my latest brews and I must say the reduced lag time is just amazing. Cut it at least in half. Think I'll keep doing it in the future. Just felt like sharing :)

Here is some more of my thoughts on this topic

General Homebrew Discussion / My Yeast Ranching Site

Hey!
Just felt like sharing my yeast ranching adventures with you guys. Been at it for a while, but not always able to give it the attention I want. Just posted an article about homebrewer friendly selective media that can help you distinguish between bugs.
Hope you find it useful!
Cheers!
