  • Posted in thread: Mash Hopping? on 11-25-2014 at 04:48 PM
    I've been getting good results mash hopping my Lagers. I'm not looking for overpowering hop
    flavors or aromas, just a good balance and clean flavor. Mash hopping has done this for me.Out
    of curiosity,...

    Agreed, I didn't see a difference, but it still makes me nervous.Trust your own experience, not
    something you read that contradicts what you've experienced.

  • Posted in thread: Saved yeast cake gushing. Question. on 11-23-2014 at 05:25 PM
    I forgot about this thread! But, I did try it myself, both ways. As I mentioned, I usually
    allow the slurry to warm a bit and then pitch. I made my usual house pale ale and direct
    pitched the cold, de...

  • Posted in thread: Mash times? on 11-21-2014 at 05:11 PM
    So I just found out I have been batch sparging wrong too. Or at least slower than I needed to.
    I have been mashing 60 minutes and "batch" sparging twice super slowly 45 min is the quickest I
    have ever...

  • Posted in thread: What original pieces of equipment do you still have? on 11-17-2014 at 06:28 PM
    At 17 years, I still have my original carboy. Probably because I quit using carboys! Also still
    have original kettle and bottling bucket.

  • Posted in thread: Maximizing Efficiency when Batch Sparging on 11-16-2014 at 08:27 PM
    Read the full thread, great info but I noticed some conflicting information. Some people stir
    at the end of the mash, then vorlauf, drain and sparge while others don't stir at end of mash.
    Is there a ...

    There is no point in adding anything to increase foam until you do the tests in this article to
    determine the source of the problem....

  • Posted in thread: Denny Conn's Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter on 11-11-2014 at 04:22 PM
    I agree that some don't take long to vorlauf and runoff and some have never had a stuck
    sparge.Mainly just pointing out that BIAB is a viable option as many try to say bigger beers
    can't be done with ...

    78% attenuation. I did pitch a pretty big starter :rockin:Attenuation is a lot more dependent
    on wort fermentability. I'm afraid that you'll lose out on the body that beer is supposed to
    have.

    FWIW- If I ever mash with an adjunct I always have an equal amount of 6-row to throw in to
    boost the enzyme. 6-Row is higher than 2-Row when it comes to enzymes.These days the diastatic
    power of 2 row...
