Posted in thread: Forbidden Fruit (3463) vs. Belgian wit (3944) Experiment on 07-10-2014 at 08:55 PM
I've got a Forbidden Fruit vs WL410 split batch of ginger wit beer going right now, so I'll be
interested to hear how your results compare to mine. 410 is my fav wit yeast as of right now,
but after s...

I'm interested in this as well. I currently have the same True TDD-1 that I keep out the in the
garage, and I'd never want it in my house. Too loud. Meanwhile my newer large chest freezer

I just got my new probe for my pH meter, and finished soaking and calibrating it. I measured
the pH of the beer in question - it's around 3.75, which is obviously very low. After
re-running my numbers...
Posted in thread: Shelf life of Lactic Acid on 07-07-2014 at 08:25 PM
Would pyruvic acid contribute to the characteristics I am tasting in the recipe below? I am
still guessing it is due to some grassy/bad amarillos, but the tartness is an interesting part
of the flavor...

I'm guessing ...

I pitched two packets - my recipe has it listed wrong. My OG was 1.045, so pitch should have
been fine. I'm going to try to find a beer judge in the Minneapolis area to give it a taste.

Hi all - I'm kinda stumped with what is wrong with my latest Pale Ale. It came out really sour!
Grapefruity for sure, which I know is a characteristic of both Amarillo and Citra hops, but
it's really ...
Posted in thread: How many back up kegs do you have? on 04-11-2014 at 08:41 PM
I have a 4-tap kegerator and around 17 ball-lock kegs. It's a good number for me since I like
to brew a bunch of 11-gallon batches in a row and then forget about brewing for a few months. I
have a lar...

One nice thing is your RO "waste" water is carbon-filtered water with just 20% more hardness
