Date: Thu, 14 Jun 2007 14:48:20 +1000 From: Bryce van Denderen <bvandenderen at svi.edu.au> Subject: Fast Fermentations Hi Guys A smallish question regarding pitching rates. I recently (heroically) performed two separate mashes on the same day yielding 10 gallons of stout wort (OG 1060) and 11 gallons of amber ale wort (OG 1050). I pitched a yeast slurry from a previous batch at a rate of 0.7 litres for the stout and 0.5 litres for the amber. The strain used was Wyeast 1056. Aeration was performed with pure oxygen for approximately 10 minutes as slowly as I could, and the pitching and fermentation temp was 18oC. To my surprise both fermentations reached an OG of 1012 after only 36 hours. I have never seen fermentation proceed so quickly. My question is have I overpitched (probably), and what are the expected ramifications to the flavour profile of these brews?? Cheers Bryce van Denderen Return to table of contents

Like cups, they're a particularly useless unit of measure. I've measure real table spoons to have between 11 and 17 ml. I won't rant any longer. I've done so at length at http://www.lemis.com/grog/recipes/measures.html. Note particularly the "cup", which can vary in size by a factor of 4. Greg - -- Finger grog at lemis.com for PGP public key.

Mark Hibberd wrote, "Just to show that even metric isn't standard, in Australia 1 metric tablespoon = 20 ml = 4 metric teaspoons (5 ml) Every where else, 1 metric tablespoon = 15 ml = 3 teaspoons" A "metric tablespoon" makes as much sense as Aussie Rules. My granny talks of tablespoons - my generation just use mls. Ant Hayes Return to table of contents
