Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Pitched a 2nd type of Yeast....
« on: September 28, 2013, 12:25:19 PM »
You can harvest the yeast but expect there to be a blend of strains, no telling what you'll get.

For future reference if your yeast is even kinda old you need toile a starter. Yeast is responsible for about 80% of beers flavor. Never skimp on it.

Denny, do you think this would also work as a hop/trub stopper at the drain inside of the kettle?  I need to do something about my system to keep things from clogging up when chilling.

Not sure of its the same braid but mine workmen in bl with whole hops, not pellets. Only had clog once in huge IIPA

Thanks for the reply!  This is my first brew ever and I'm hoping it turns out well!  I will def. note the link you have above.  I will also post back how this turns out as I'm going to document everything I can.  ;D

Your making a smart decision here. Most beginners under pitch the first several beers. I think you will be pleased with the results. Just be sure you try and keep the fermentation temp cool and don't pitch your yeast until the temp of wort is cooked below 68 degrees. In fact, if you can get it down in the low 60s that would be best. Be sure to aerate properly. Shaking the fermenter for 30 minutes would not be too much.

And +1 to dry yeast comment. Us-05 is a very nice strain and 1 packet would give you the cell count you need for thus batch.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Fermentation not finished
« on: September 26, 2013, 01:21:16 PM »
The most important thing you can take away from thus is: racking isn't really necessary in most cases but racking before beer is finished can totally screw up everything. I'm not totally convicted the beer will finish out completely unless you really did remove all the yeast and put in 2ndary ... And then I have to wonder why in the world you would do that?

What do you think is going to happen to the Eagles this weekend...:(

I don't know but they continue to be one of the most fun train wrecks to watch on TV! :)

One of the most exciting, yet depressing teams to watch. ;) >:( :-[

I guess it depends on your perspective. ;) I actually used to consider myself an Eagles fan back in the day. I actively turned against them during the Buddy Ryan era. Loved to hate that guy!

Hmmmmm ..... wonder how those Germans make crystal clear beer without the use or WF? ;) As long as your pH was in line the WF isn't really necessary. It definitely does help in clarification, but I've made plenty of beers that have not used it that were brilliantly clear.

Yeah, I think you will notice an improvement in your beer if you can get more control over temp. If you are at 67 ambient then at high krausen your temp will be in mid 70s, far too warm for most ale yeasts.
