    I have strict temperature control and did nothing different to any of my previous batches, I clean and sterilise my equipment, as I always do.

    yeast starter confusion

    I have never used a yeast starter or re-hydrated the yeast, until last Tuesday, and the fermentation stopped short. I am going back to just sprinkling dry yeast into my aerated wort.

    I use Mr. Berry's book homemade beers etc, to 'brew' good beers using liquid malt extract and his first steps to make very drinkable elderberry wines, which take about a year to be drinkable. cheers all

    From brew-day to bottling, what's your average elapsed number of days?

    My LME ales using CJJ Berry and Dave Lines recipes are taking about 10-14 days at 20 degrees but turn out very drinkable. I use and insulated jacket from a fast fermenter with 2 litre lemonade bottles with frozen salt water to maintain the temperature, changing the the bottles once a day.
