  • Posted in thread: Belgian Tripel finished with Brett B question on 10-15-2015 at 10:43 AM
    After a few months in secondary with Brett, will there be enough Bret still in suspension to
    bottle without additional yeast?

    I'm looking to brew the Brewing Classic Styles Irish Red recipe. It calls for Roasted Barley at
    300L. If I can only get 500L, should I just add less to maintain the same color target? I worry
    that the...

    There is a recipe on the can you brew it pod cast from a Norwegian brewery that uses a bit of a
    dark malt (can't recall chocolate v. Other dark malts). Jamil and Tasty were shocked that it
    tasted like...

    In England, only bottle conditioned beers (other than those on cask) can be called "Real Ale"
    seems silly to me as I'm not sure there is a difference in taste

  • Posted in thread: Biab vs extract on 09-26-2015 at 11:43 AM
    Again - my guess is that 90% of the bad beer made with LME is bad because of poor yeast
    management and poor fermentation. Do those well, and I'll bet the beer isn't bad. The Brewers
    who made the wort ...

    If time is a real issue, you can make a good hoppy pale ale with extract, some steeping grains,
    and a 15 minute boil. Some have, reportedly, even won competitions with that recipe! With a
    good ferment...

  • Posted in thread: More exBEERiments regarding temp control? on 09-16-2015 at 03:20 AM
    Temperature control absolutely does make a difference. The difference between my beers
    fermented at room temperature and those after I set up my fermentation chamber was night and
    day.How precise it n...

    I agree - while mine has had no issues - (so no need for customer svc) I have heard nothing but
    positive things about how quickly and thoroughly the service has been. This seems a bit odd to

    I must add though, that as a BIAB brewer pre-zymatic, I never split my mineral additions - so
    it seemed more natural for me

  • Posted in thread: PicoBrew Zymatic on 09-13-2015 at 03:18 PM
    I do that as well, and just add the total minerals to the keg. I use Tasty McDole's water
    profiles. Now, if these are supposed to be mash only water additions then the calculations are
    off. The altern...
