Re: yeast slurry

That way even nif there is still an infection i will still have 1...

Re: yeast slurry

yes so two prime suspects here! yeast slurry was harvested from a low gravity brew when kegged. essentially just collected about a half pint in a sanitised pint glass, put sanitised foil over the top and left in the fridge for 4-5 weeks. I understand phenols and the nail polish effect can come from ...

Re: Rye

The usual 23 litres that i mash with every time. stirred very well, and stirred again after each fountain. Interesting that i still hit my numbers on manual without the pump on full time too.

I low the temperat...

Re: cold side oxygen reduction -

[It depends on the style you brew. Some of them will need much attention on this aspect to avoid hop oil volatility. It’s the drink super fresh kind of beers within 1 month. Like NEIPA style That's exactly what i meant :D but I'm not a modern IPA fancier so I might be missing a point here. I have t...
