It took a while, but mine cleared. I did cool the wort portion before adding to the juice. It
took around a 4-5 weeks in the carboy for the yeast/protein/etc to drop. I suspect cold
crashing or gelati...

Nope, I wouldn't. But thats just me.Is there any particular reason, or just a gut feeling? I
can respect both.The density of silicone oil is similar to water, though actually a little less
which is wh...

I'm getting ready to set up some sour fermentations that will likely become part of a solera.
One of the bigger issue is accidentally letting the airlocks run dry due to the long aging
times.Do you th...

I agree. The lower pH after degassing makes so sense to me. I could make some wild guesses as

I brewed this up a few weeks ago. I was going to do the cold conditioning in a keg for
convenience, and to save on footprint space in my keezer. I actually ended up getting almost 6
gallons of beer ou...

Hmmmmm, I would have actually expected the pH to increase after degassing. That's good to know

pH is logarithmic. A pH of 3 has 10x the acid concentration as a pH of 4. I suspect that
Cantillion Gueuze is pretty acidic. According to Embrace the Funk, it has a pH of 3.4, which is
an order of mag...

It also seems to flocculate better than 1056/001, which is nice for making crystal clear beer.

Do you guys have any tips for kegging these kind of beers? I transferred and pressurized about
a week ago. I thought I did a pretty good job at not picking up much trub or hop matter, but
Posted in thread: Would you buy "Box Subscription" for homebrewing? on 04-27-2016 at 02:06 AM
I think the concept could be cool, but implementation could be tricky. As others have
