---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 25 Apr 2006 10:47:58 -0500 From: "some or all of the Oswalds in lower Alabama" <usoswalds at gmail.com> Subject: baker's yeast Hello all, I was brewing Friday and accidentally killed my yeast starter. So in a pinch, I used some of my wife's baker's yeast for a new one rather than risk an infection and loose everything. When I filled the cooled wort and yeast into my 5 gal carboy, it was nearly 18L. To avoid excessive blowoff, Saturday at 7 AM, I decided to put the loaded carboy in my fridge to cool off and then let it warm slowly. To my surprise the fermentation went off like a shot - not too much blowoff - but really going well by Sat PM. Now it's Tuesday and it is still bubbling away - but why? I thought lager yeast were specialized for the low temps. My wife's bread does not rise unless the dough is warm, so how is it working so at 40F? I have never made a lager before but I am tempted to leave it in the frig until the fermentation stops ( I guess I will have to do the diacetal rest stuff too). The style - you tell me 10 lbs Muntons 2-row American style, 1 lbs Muntons Chocolate, 2 oz. Nugget hops 1 hr, cooled in my sink with water changes over night (covered from the start of course). Thanks for any comments or advice. John (near Mobile, Alabama) Return to table of contents

I am attending a family wedding this summer and will be flying into Sacramento and driving to Modesto to see my 96 yr old grandmother, then to St. Helena for the wedding. As it is a family wedding I am going with my folks and not taking the kids, hence the opportunity for a winery or brewery or two, or three, or four... Anything in my direct route I shouldn't miss??
