  • Posted in thread: Metallic and bitter taste - SS Brew Bucket, Star San and oxydation on 05-05-2015 at 02:41 AM
    How are you carbonating? The mention of a metallic taste brings to mind the possibility of a
    carbonic acid bite which seems to be more common when burst carbing vs. slow force carbing (2
    weeks at serv...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast 1056 (American Ale) Temperature Questions on 05-05-2015 at 02:37 AM
    64-65*F beer temp is a pretty well-established "sweet spot" 001, US-05, 1056 and BRY-97. After
    a drop off in activity, it's fine to let it free rise up towards 70*F to encourage by-product
    clean up fo...

    Sorry for the late reply, but the 2 packets gave the brew a swift kick, activity for over a
    week. Final product came out great (in my opinion) - thank you for all the help!Thanks for
    letting us know t...

  • Posted in thread: Odor and cloudiness during fermentation? on 05-03-2015 at 04:07 AM
    I wouldn't fret too much about either. Belgian strains (and others) can sometimes kick off some
    sulphur odor. Clarity should improve towards the end of the ferment.

  • Posted in thread: What method of beer clearing do you use? on 05-03-2015 at 04:03 AM
    Whirlfloc last 10 min of boilCold crash the primary at 35*F for a week. Rack cold beer to keg
    or bottling bucket. The cold causes the yeast cake to be more firm, making it easier to avoid
    sucking any ...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary Fermentation Issues on 05-02-2015 at 08:19 PM
    What style of brew is this one? Perhaps the first question you ought to ask yourself is, "why
    am I moving this beer out of the primary into a secondary in the first place?" Unless there's a
    specific r...

  • Posted in thread: Getting past the green beer phase...chilled or room temp? on 05-02-2015 at 08:07 PM
    Sitting in the keg at service temp (38-40*F) for a couple of weeks can actually improve the
    character of many beers. I like to cold crash the primary a week, rack the cold beer to the
    keg, put it on 1...

    It won't be miller lite, but probably much better :)Most things are. :mug:

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you're very unlikely to end up with the sort of clean
    taste that one expects from a light lager well brewed. Bottom line, you need to pitch more
    yeast (twice t...

    Lowes has inexpensive 5 gallon food grade white plastic buckets in their paint dept which make
    excellent bottling buckets. Add a spigot and you're all set.
