    yeast cultivation and style of beer

    I'm sorry but whoever told you that is a fool. I have made starters with a higher gravity many times and all has worked out well. Someone else I know made a +.40 wheat beer for a starter to go in a Belgian Tripple.

    Liquid yeast or dried yeast?

    Whilst this is mostly true, you have no idea of the conditions of how the yeast has been handled on it's journey from the States across the pond if you are based in the UK, what temperatures has it been subjected to? What is the variation between the fluctuations? What has the storage sanitation...

    Liquid yeast or dried yeast?

    How long are you thinking it takes to make a starter? Take some wort from 10 minutes into the boil, crash chill it and add your yeast. By pitching time it's ready.

    Agree. Mild doesn't have to be made from dark or roasted malts at all, many of the early examples were simply made of pale/crystal and brewers caramel. Hopped by either Goldings, Challenger or Fuggles, several only had a bittering of addition. Another common ingredient was brewers invert sugar...

    conditioning beer

    There is a lot of yes and no surrounding this subject and a lot of it is opinionated, very little is ever supported by concrete evidence cause people always argue indifferently. Conditioning doesn't meant 'getting it a bit fizzy' at all as typically the beer these days would be pumped to the...

    Bitter Recipe Critique Please

    I don't see why you should have to tone down the Torrified Wheat and Crystal, it doesn't always have to be about the hop aroma. This is my go to Bitter, much better than just a hop focused beer. Session Bitter: O.G 1.035 Grist: 78% Pale Malt, 10.5% Crystal Malt, 10.5% Torrified Wheat, 1% Black...
