Should be nice. Are you planning to using finings or let it clear down on its own?
On it's own.

Lallemand London ESB dry yeast.

I brewed an extract batch of bitter with this yeast four days ago.
It started quickly and was done in less than 44 hours, taking it down from 1.040 to 1.012 for a 70% attenuation. The hydrometer sample tasted pretty good.

Re: Extremely fast fermentation.

I just did a bitter with Lallemand London ESB yeast that went from 1.040 to 1.012 in about 40 hours. That's probably not excessive (the attenuation isn't huge so it shouldn't take too long, assuming all is well), though I wouldn't wish it any faster. Obviously, a lot depends on the recipe and the b...

Re: Dry hopping

Different hops react differently to biotransformation so your results may vary.

Re: Grain efficiency

By BIAB I mean my grains in a bag in less than the full amount of water, lifting the bag out and running some water through the bag to get up to full preboil volume.

Grain efficiency

Had anyone out there switched from regular all-grain to BIAB?
How was your efficiency changed?

Re: Brut ipa

When I was in the Navy and a kid just out of boot camp would report for duty I'd ask if I could give his cologne a try, claiming that it was new to me. When the newbie would hand it over I'd take a swig, smile, and tell him it was pretty good.

Re: Brut ipa

The White Labs product is for during the mash. There are others that are designed for the fermenter. Each has it's own place. Which brings up the question, "can it be done without enzymes?" I recently did a brown ale with nottingham yeast that went from 1.050 to 1.007. I wonder how close to "brut F...

Re: Dry yeast reuse

FWIW I read a post claiming that once you ferment a batch with dry yeast you can reuse it just like liquid yeast.

I use a 6L Tap-a-draft bottle that I prime to carbonate and it goes through two 16g cartridges.

I bottled this on Monday: yummy 😋.
And on Tuesday I brewed a batch of IBUless hazy session IPA that I'll be serving at a brewfest downtown on the fifth of July. This will be the first year that homebrewers will be included.

I recently got the go ahead from the editor of Zymurgy to do a Last Drop piece on no-boil brewing for the Nov/Dec issue.

Re: Guiness clone (aka Dirty Badger)

I recently did a no-boil extract stout that came out very Guinness like. I cold steeped 8 ounces of roast barley, 4 ounces of caraffa II, and 4 ounces of blackprinz overnight. But stupidly left the cold steep out of the fridge at room temperature inadvertently doing a mini sour mash. It's actually p...
