comment Cleaning Fermenter
It's likely that the reason your Oxiclean doesn't dissolve is because you're using too much. I find that 2 Tbsp. is plenty to clean a 6 gal. fermenter that's very grungy.

comment How do you harvest yeast from a commercial beer?
I know for a fact that they don't. Most breweries use the fermentation strain because the have so much of it that it doesn't make economic sense for them to use something else. A few Rogue beers are filtered, but most are not.

comment Stuck Mash — New LHBS
Boy, if your efficiency is about the same it makes me doubt that crush is the real problem. Have you brewed the same recipe with grain from each place?

comment Is hop harvesting before first frost necessary?
When you store them in the freezer, they're dead, dried and vacuum sealed. When they freeze on the bine, they turn brown and become pretty much worthless.

comment Any reason not to boil for longer?
Have you ever done a partigyle brew? The second runnings beer turns out rather thin and lacking flavor (usually) unless you cap the mash with more grain. The difference comes down to the fact that you've already extracted most of the flavor compounds.

Sorry, that hasn't been my experience.

You can determine this by yourself simply by tasting the runnings. The earlier runnings have a rich, malty flavor. The later runnings taste "watered down".

Well, you've done it without and now you're trying it with. That's the best way to decide!
