Date: Thu, 18 Sep 2008 08:28:55 +0100 From: Ed Case <edward.case at ntlworld.com> Subject: Oxidation in bottles In John Palmer's "How to brew" (3ed) p92 he says that there have been several studies that have shown that yeast only consume 30% of the oxygen in the headspace of the bottle. Received wisdom in the UK is that the yeast consumes effectively all of the yeast, so I was wondering if anyone has references for any of the studies or better still copies?

They have small horizontal grooves cut in them. They were for the mill I never got around to making. If you want to pay shipping, I will send them to you. I have two solid rollers I built my first mill with. They are at the house but I would guess 8" long and approx. 3" in diameter. I think it was a 5/8" nut weiled to each end. They are VERY heavy. If anyone close by want them, or you want to pay shipping get in touch. Glyn in So. Middle TN Return to table of contents

I recently mixed several yeasts, in that they were all old and I thought I would maximize the chance that something would wake up. One was a 2 year old Wyeast German Ale, one was a 2 year old Wyeast Ringwood, and the third was also several years old, but a dry Safale 25. The result was interesting. And, each time I re-use it , I think that I get more of the "ringwood" flavor (some of that diacetyl). Do you guys ever mix yeasts? And, then re-use? Darrell Return to table of contents
