    ABOUT ME

  • Currently brewing all-grain beers using a 5-gal mashtun with stainless steel braid and using a 6.5-gallon boil. I specialize in Koelsch, Pale Ales and their relatives, Witbiers, as well as Apfelwein-derivatives.

    I started out brewing with a Mr. Beer Kit, then moved on to extract with steeping grain kits, partial mash kits and ultimately custom partial mash and all-grain recipes. Austin Homebrew Supplies is my main supplier, although I have also had good luck with Midwest Supplies, Northern Brewer and Brewmasters Warehouse.

    With 300, I get bubblegum, not banana at higher temperatures. I ferment it in the low 60s and
    get plenty of banana.

    Very interested!

    Particulates can skew the reading. Try to minimize picking up grain particles, hop particles,
    and protein scum.

    Purchase a vial or pouch of WLP099 Super High Gravity Yeast and pitch it in there. It will dry
    it right out. 099 will fix 90% of underattenuated beers with minimal flavor impact.

    How do you setup a propane fired RIMS system?It's pretty much the standard configuration for
    the gas-fired Tower of Power. It takes the temperature in the recirculation loop and then turns
    on the burn...

    You could look into getting a Grainfather or build your own electric brewing system.

  • Posted in thread: RIP stuck fermentation - Pitch US05 or WLP001? on 09-28-2015 at 01:02 PM
    WLP001 has a high alcohol tolerance I believe 12%. So why wouldn't it work? I've also been
    thinking of using WY3711 french saison yeastAlcohol tolerance refers to how high a yeast can go
    under ideal c...

    US-05 and 001 will have a really hard time to gain a foothold in that kind of high-alcohol
    environment. Pitch a vial of WLP099 in there. As long as you didn't screw up the mash, that
    will fix any stuc...

    It's cheap insurance to use yeast nutrients - it makes life a little bit less stressful for the
    yeast.By the way, if you are making a 5-gallon batch, you are grossly underpitching with a 2L
    starter.
