  • Posted in thread: The original Lager thread.. Everything you ever wanted to know or ask on 04-13-2014 at 10:10 PM
    What folks (like me) discourage is the pointless/needless siphoning of a beer to a secondary.
    In your situation, long-term aging or lagering is a perfectly good reason to move the beer over
    to a carbo...

    If you want to keep it sitting around until July, I'd want to transfer it off the yeast into a
    new carboy.Sent from my iPhone using Home BrewThat is what I was thinking, but from reading

    Here's a question for the lager experts.I brewed an Oktoberfest last weekend, everything went
    well. It's doing d-rest currently. The original plan was to transfer it into a keg in another
    day or two, ...

    my SOP for brew water:Here in Waukesha we have very hard water, about 450mg/l total hardness,
    as CaCO3. I cut the water 1 part tap to 3 parts RO which give me about 110 mg/l total hardness.

    I usually chill the wort to a few degrees below planned ferment temperature, and have the yeast
    starter chilled a few degrees below that. So I pitch yeast into slightly warmer wort, then let
    it rise a...

    I may be off the mark on this, someone will correct me I'm sure, I think steeping is more for
    extracting flavor and color from specific grains, not necessarily conversion of starch. For
    example making...

  • Posted in thread: 3 weeks- Grain to glass. Anyone else doing this? on 02-11-2014 at 11:03 PM
    I went through a phase a few years ago where I decided all my lighter ales had to go grain to
    glass in 10-14 days. Centennial blonde, hefe's, belgian wits, etc all tasted good initially,
    but they seem...

    Hmmm, maybe some people are more or less sensitive to some flavors, like banana flavor. I
    was/am a big fan of hefe's, and to me Hacker-Pschor, Paulaner, Franz, none of them seem to have
    an in your fac...
