  • Posted in thread: Will 1056 bottle condition an 11.25% IIPA? on 02-27-2015 at 02:33 AM
    I haven't done this, but I suspect you're right - will take longer to carb. But if you can get
    access to CBC-1, I'd highly recommend it. I bottled a 10.5% barleywine and CBC-1 had it carbed
    in 2-3 wee...

    Does the original 30 PSI carbonate the beer faster?YesCan I just set it to 11 PSI and leave it
    in the fridge longer to achieve the same level of carbonation?YesIs there a way to know how

    I did taste it. It seemed dry but the more accurate test will be when it's cold and carbed. I
    have a stir plate and TK in my fridge so maybe I'll try your idea. However, the Bosteels
    website says TK h...

    That makes sense. I didn't effectively look at it from that angle. I was simply dividing the
    total water needed into two equal parts and split between the MT and BK. But, you're right
    doing that with ...

    But, when Iím doing a light beer at 5 gallons and the total water is split between the MT and
    BK, what is the minimum gravity I can brew and still achieve the minimum volume in the BK
    (which during th...

    Ohhh that's a bummer...:( I pitched at 44F let it rise naturally to 48F. As for the yeast, I
    collected some trub from my previous lager (rauchbier) and stored it for 2 months. Then I made
    a small star...

    On my first ever lager, I messed up the starter and got massive acetaldehyde. I tried
    everything to get rid of it - I lagered, I warmed it (apparently acetaldehyde evaporates at
    something around 90F s...

    Did you pitch warm or cold? Starter or none? Aeration?
