so would you keep this below 65F until the end or would you let it warm up to upper 60s at some point during the fermentation?

I just recently reused Gulo yeast. Slurry that was in the fridge for 10 weeks or so. It was hardy the first time around, so I just pitched it. No activity for the first 24 hours - whoa, I was expecting a rocket like the first time. Later that next night, I saw some bubbles, not much but it started. Now? It's exploded! Gravity is dropping like a stone. OG was 1.070 and now 1.030 (an hour ago).

When I can hear the blowoff from across the room with the chest freezer closed that's a good sign :cheers:

def slowing down this morning so the spunding valve is on and the space heater is warming things up a touch.

 

I don't know if the blowoff tube is any indicator but this seems like it might be pretty fruity.  I noticed the aroma when I was rinsing it off/out.

Beer doesn't taste bad or anything. I anticipate drinking this.

Maybe it'll drop a point or 2 if you let it ride. My fg lately have been sub 1.010. Highest 1.008.

1.016 in this beer sounds good to me.

Eta :not surprising for Conan since it can be a pita.

Are those from the Tilt? Does it account for the carbonation assuming that they were pressure fermentation.

I usually take a sample anyway at the end just to compare to the Tilt.

Got it. I never used the Tilt under carbonation so I was not sure how it handled it.

went down to maybe 1.015 after another day and a half so I'm calling it done.  is this yeast regularly a low attenuator?  I'll have to keep that in mind if I make another beer with the fresh cake next week.

I guess an attenuation of 74.5% isn't that low.  so what would be a good hoppy beer to make with this yeast?  I'm inclined to make something with a base of GP and minimal "other stuff".

I don't have mo but I do have gp. Probably if I added a touch of carapils copper that might push it in the direction of an all mo beer in terms of body.

I think I have cascade but no cent.

okay I was wrong - no cascade or cent in stock right now LOL!

 

that's okay though.  here's what I do have that might work here:

 

chinook

citra

saaz (out of place?  maybe!)

magnum (just for the bittering?)

bravo

eldorado

willamette

azacca

idaho 7

I want to try a Citra/I7 beer. Maybe that combo would work for you.

Actually, carbonation doesn't effect Tilt readings as much as I thought. At least so far from what I'm seeing.

No that is pretty good. I’d ferment higher than 65 tho. Prob 70 or so. Fast and fruity
