    Keep them away from oxygen (zero oxygen contact after pitching the yeast, push out of primary
    under co2 pressure into keg purged by pushing out sanitizer) and COLD as possible (without
    freezing) and t...

  • Posted in thread: People say "Green Apple" as an off flavor when describing beer. What is that? on 05-02-2016 at 04:47 PM
    Acetaldehyde created as a pre-cursor to ethanol tastes different than acetaldehyde created from
    the oxidation of ethanol. Not all acetaldehyde will taste the same. Not all people will
    perceive it the ...

    HSA, but as ...

    I dont understand this thread really. I must be missing something.When I mash in I stir like
    crazy for a few minutes, definitely mixing in tons of oxygen. I then drain the tun and pour in

    How do you know that already? Insider information from judging?Yes. We were able to pick up our
    score sheets after judging on Saturday.
