    Wort, Yeast & Temperature

    For ales I've often read below 80. Personally I try to pitch within the temp range on the yeast packet. S-05 seems pretty forgiving in its pitch as I've not had any issues pitching from 63-75F.

    S-04 is a fickle yeast as are most English strains. Be sure to not let the wort cool below the current fermentation temperature or the yeast will drop out and go to sleep to early. I always allow my English strains to raise 1 degree per day during fermentation to ensure that it doesn't drop early.

    Wort, Yeast & Temperature

    Fire Rooster, Pitching into 70 degree wort is OK but it would be better to be a little cooler. When the yeast are first pitched is the most critical time for flavor developement since that is when they are making sure they have enough population to do the job at hand. During this time if it is too warm, they will put off flavors that may not be desirable. Once fermentation starts temperature is still important but not quite as critical as in the beginning. If my wort is too warm when I am ready to pitch, I put my fermenter in my fermentation chamber and cool it to below where I want to ferment and then pitch. If you don't have a fermentation chamber a cooler with ice bottles or your refrigerator will work to cool the wort. As long as your sanitation practices are good, you could wait 12 hours to pitch at the proper temperature. Every beer that I brew gets pitched at 62 (it don't do lagers yet) and then adjusted for fermentation temperature based on the yeast. Belgians and Saisons are allowed to raise to the mid 60s with all other ales remaining at 62 for the next 3 days before being allowed to rise. Dawg

    Oy, also aiming for less attenuation in my current ale fermenting. Trying S-04 for the first time. Seems to take off fast, pitched in the morning and at bedtime blowoff jar was gurgling.

    Wort, Yeast & Temperature

    Not until Zombie Dust clone was made, it was realized that yeast was being pitched into an unknown wort temperature. US-05 was pitched into 70 degree wort, then LBK was moved to a 60 degree basement. What is the proper safe range to pitch yeast into wort ? Thanks

    did my bottling for first batch

    I tried my first bottle last night after chilling it for threes days. I know it was a few days early but I figured what the heck. I poured it into a glass slowly. There was no foam and I thought it was too early. I tasted it and it tasted pretty decent especially for a light beer. It had an amber color that looked similar to Sam Adams. It did seem carbonated perhaps a bit light on the carbonation so I will wait and try another bottle after I get back from my trip to the mountains. Overall I'm pretty pleased with my first batch.

    Funny thing. I brewed a black ipa last weekend. I wanted a nice sweetness to the finished product. Traditionally you would use a north west yeast strain, but i went with london ale III because i wanted some english fruity sweet flavors. Turns out, london III attenuates more than northwest ale yeast... SOB

    Oh! Well, now I've learned something else new. I mean, I have not been able to locate any substantial data on what (exactly) is inside those MRB yeast packets, but I have seen a lot of recipes of theirs that call for something else and this could be why. I'm slowly accumulating a small jar of MRB yeast packets and a much larger one of MRB Booster packs. Thanks Nickfixit

    Diablo IPA with US-05

    that's what i think i will try, the teflon tape wrap. will test with water 1st!

    Diablo IPA with US-05

    Wow, I've had mine too far up and blocked some flow, but no way would it fall out. If it was loose I'd probably put a wrap of teflon tape on it.

    Diablo IPA with US-05

    Bought mine from MrBeer. It doesn't leak as much as it does fall out. Wrap tape around it, sanitize it...it still moves upward into the spigot blocking off all flow whenever I try to fill a bottle. Becomes a two hands job. One to hold the bottle, the other to hold the wand to keep it stationary.

    Thanks! I've been looking at an Apera digital that has a replaceable sensor. Seems to get good reviews @Creeps McLane.

    This is why the Mr B yeast makes malty brews isn't it, as it attenuates less than US-05?

    Yeah, yeah, yeah... You're doing it wrong. Fixed...

    Unfortunately, your beer may be ruined. To ensure it's safe, please mail it to my testing facility and I will personally check every bottle. RickBeer 123 I Will Drink Your Beer Drive Ann Arbor, MI 48105 Boiling wort. Ice cube falls in. Melts, kills anything before wort cools. All is well.

    Diablo IPA with US-05

    Difference in new LBK is the spigot which also has a different size fitting hole ( :-/) but does come apart or cleaning ( 🙂 and the size of the top hole which makes cleaning easier. Mine though are also darker, making it very difficult to see the liquid levels - can't easily see liquid from outside or line from inside. Flashlight and tape markers help. I just (Sept) made a Diablo with the Mr B yeast. Good but I should have put some aroma hop in.

    Anyone on here have any insight as to a good digital pH tester?

    Partial Mash

    Finished making Zombie Dust clone. When boil started it foamed up then subsided. Everything executed with surgical precision, with the exeption of one ice cube falling into wort. Put ice in kitchen sink to cool pot of wort. When adding more ice to sink one cube flipped into wort from bag. I think Cascade hops had a better aroma than Citra.

    Cato, Test strips aren't very accurate. PH meter is the better way to go. And I will tell you my cheap one is more frustration to me than it is worth. Dawg

    Peanut Butter Stout

    I still want clarification on this line. I must be doing something wrong because I don't get near that many bottles to the gallon. 😂😂😂
  27. Cato

    Diablo IPA with US-05

    Yeah, might fit better. I bought an extra from MB to use with my brew buckets and it fits tight on my LBK's as well.

    Peanut Butter Stout

    Yes, but that's not the point 😉 ml in this case is more meaningful than teaspoons.
