    We use US-05 mostly, but when we do use liquid yeast we will take the time on the starter on the first generation. Then we will harvest the yeast off the cone and use up to 5 generations.

    We run 100% until we hit the boil. Then we run through the break (about 10 min) then turn down to about 80-85. We are running 2 x 5500 watt elements.

    So at the end of November I brewed a batch (1 BBL) of our Red, after 2 weeks it stopped at 1.015 and I thought it was done after 3-5 days of inactivity or gravity drop. Just before Christmas it...
