So you are saying that 3 weeks in Primary, 2 days cold crashing and 1 week on CO2 will not clarify this beer? Plus Whirl at 15mins. Not trying to be pushy but I have been leaving it in primary for almost two years now. I am trying not to do too much work if I don't have to. Can't wait to brew this on Friday night.

No I'm not. The original recipe says to add the AE to an empty fermenter and rack to it, then let it sit 2 weeks. The beer gets super clear this way.

That's not to say that any other way won't work. The two step method is an easy way to get clarity w/o minimal effort or equipment.

Try leaving the AE in some clean beer and let it sit. I would recommend racking on top of AE though.

Gotta go...

The AE is supposed to dry the beer out really well.

How does the AE compare to mashing lower? Does it screw with the flavor profile or does it cause a more vigorous fermentation?

Mine is powdered as well (Ordered from http://www.highgravitybrew.com). I'm supposed to get my order from Austinhomebrew.com today. So I'll see if this one is powdered too. I'm also curious as to were ppl that have good results with AE get theirs.

Default Question about Sorachi


How does this work as a bittering hop? I have an ounce that came with a bitter kit but I thought is was too much as I am not into citrus unless it is a wit. If I used .33oz of Sorachi (14%) at 60 minutes (19 IBU), do I still get the citrus or just the bittering? I want to use this up if I can. Thanks for any help.

AE dies in the boil after mashing. It does not mess up the flavor profile. What is does it break down the leftover dextrines from the primary ferment. It definitely removes and residual corn taste. That's why I use in in the 2ndary.

I get my AE from the LHBS. I believe its a JD Carlson Brand.

If you use sorachi in a 60 minute bittering it will be very neutral. I doubt you would be able to tell if you used sorachi, especially if you did a late or dry hopping with a noble German or Czech variety.
