Re: help me with my grain

Yeah, even though the XLs say they are pitchable, they really are far less yeast than is optimal.
that being said, I've had good ferments with only a smack pack and bad, I've had good ferments with a two-step starter, and bad.
I've just ordered an O2 system, because I have been experiencing high finishing gravities lately. My areation technique has always been poor, hopefully this will help bring those gravities down!
