Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Combined threads
« on: March 25, 2014, 03:11:26 PM »
I think yeast would grow as long as it has oxygen (and food).
So our 3 day is sort of a magic number.

I start at 50F.
I raze temp 1F each day till I reach 60F.
At that point I am most likely at FG.
Cold crash and let is sit in yeast for a week or so.
Filter, carbonate and package.
Nothing special about lagering.

Last thing is that larger fermenter suppress ester production.

What's really amazing is when you are starting up you are like "OMG! That's 5K!" Then, 4 years in you are like "OMG! That's ONLY 5K!!!" ;)
How true is that.
I am still sticking to 10k.

When I started up I was unprepared to hear walking cooler cost.

Ron,

I would just want the lager to be at 55 for longer than 3 days before ramping it up.

What is your fermentation chamber like?
You are concerned about yeast growth time.
After that you are home free.
Lagers or not.

I think your question had been answered.

You are fine.

36
May be we should define what that limited budget is.

Three minivans?
Just be realistic.

37
Just a walking cooler can be 10k

My joke is that every equipment cost 10k.
Wanna fermenter? 10k
Wanna bright tank? 10k
Wanna glycol chiller? 10K

Wanna more?

Not to mean to scare you but it cost money to start.
Nano is too small to my opinion.
All sales thru taproom is quite viable.
Forget about draught sales.

Foxx equipment is pretty good.
It is wholesale only.

I do like CO2 regulators and keg couplers from Micromatic thou.
May be your LHBS can order from Foxx Equipment. 

And get SS stuff only.
It is more expensive but worth it in my opinion.

Snotty bubbles? That sounds .... interesting ....
One pint of that snotty bubble please.

If it taste fine, keep it cool and consume it in reasonable time.
May be it was just dry hop and yeast reaction.

Ingredients / Re: Lagers Again

I am actually blending 50-50 floor malted and regular BoPils malt in my Pilsner.
I am not 100% positive it it has any flavor impact thou.
Blending base malt is a good thing to my opinion.

Yes we do pay for water and sewer.
Less water we use less we pay.

Shoot,

Why I did not read this 4 years ago.
I could have been driving that red Corvette all these times.

Less work and more chick picked up.

I got into the brewery business for the groupies and the blow. Unfortunately I didn't realize that the groupies all have pot bellies and beards, and the job blows. ;)

Ha ha ha...
The same here.
