  • Posted in thread: Berliner Weisse In 5 Weeks? on 09-23-2014 at 08:28 PM
    I recently cultured up a Berliner from uncrushed malt and while my initial starter was a citrus
    creamed corn, my wort souring grew pinkish peach pellicle and smelled of cherry pie. Not sure
    if that's ...

    What's your reasoning for keeping it in primary the whole time?

  • Posted in thread: SUBP Let's Brew Wednesday thread on 09-22-2014 at 02:26 PM
    Thanks for sharing, I'm planning on brewing this up in the fall/winter. What was your final
    gravity on this and how did you handle the dryhopping? Any time frames would be helpful if you
    have them. A ...

  • Posted in thread: Quit hatin on dry yeast on 07-15-2014 at 02:36 PM
    I believe its at the point now that the amount of yeast in one package is a disservice to new
    homebrewers and that to really get to know a yeast and get the best out of it requires more
    than just a fi...

    I apologize for the lack of specific detail, but I was able to bring 4 gallons of water to a
    nice rolling boil on an Avantco 1800W using a non-magnetic "economy" 5 gallon kettle. The
    kettle was bought...

  • Posted in thread: Rye Saison advise needed on 04-14-2014 at 03:29 PM
    I would cut out the wheat and either add another lb of Pilsner or a lb of rye. That way you
    isolate what the rye brings to the beer and still be good comparison to your first beer. I
    would wait on the...

    Ken, I'm a bit surprised, and then again I'm not, that you haven't chosen to brew the same beer
    twice with the same ingredients and proceedure during all this. Last week I brewed up a
    dopplebock and m...

  • Posted in thread: Heady Topper- Can you clone it? on 04-06-2014 at 06:21 AM
    You might be best to start anew. Keep your starters low in sugar and step up gradually while
    keeping a schedule. I recently took the dregs of one bottle to 10ml, then to 100ml and finally
    to 1 liter o...

    Don't worry about the mash rise time. The idea behind the elevated temperature mash out is to
    either improve lautering and/or to stop enzymatic action to set the fermentability limit of the
    wort. This...

    70+ batches here so I might qualify to give some advice. ;) 1) corn sugar - The corn sugar
    might help shift the balance of your beer between malt and hops. Dryness in an IPA helps as
    I've found with t...
