  • Posted in thread: Oxygen for beer on 10-21-2014 at 02:09 PM
    ... based on practical experience some brewers find that too much oxygen results in
    fermentations that stall after a very vigorous start that also tends to throw off lots of
    acetaldehyde & sulfur". :...

  • Posted in thread: Noble Rot on 10-16-2014 at 04:56 AM
    Noble rot refers to very ripe grapes which become partially raisined due to a type of fungus.
    They're used to make very sweet wines. It doesn't sound like it would be good in beer, but what
    do I know....

    I'm not usually a grammar nazi, but you would also like to think that judges would possess the
    skills to properly conjugate two of the most common verbs in the language which they are using
    to describ...

    The funniest comment I've ever gotten on a score sheet was for an APA I entered in the Ohio
    State Fair. In the "overall impression" category the judge said (and this is exactly as
    written): "Keep tryi...

    If judges are approaching the judging table without their personal biases in check, then there
    is no point to having any standards. Every competition becomes simply a best-in-show, and
    whichever beer ...

    I'm still waiting for my results from my most current competition, but I've had some where they
    just say "hops" and "ok" in the descriptions for aroma and taste... then they score me 35/50.
    Well, I ne...

    There are some judges who are definitely judging beers on their own personal preferences rather
    than judging the beer on its own merits. I often enter the American Pale Ale category because I
    prefer t...

  • Posted in thread: Hot Wort Aeration on 10-08-2014 at 12:06 AM
    This problem with a "wet cardboard" taste sounds very much like a problem I had with every
    batch when I first attempted to brew "hoppy" beers. I had a horrible taste in my beers that I
    initially thoug...

  • Posted in thread: What Coffee Roaster do you use at home? on 10-07-2014 at 02:11 AM
    I use a 1400 watt Wearever Popcorn Pumper. They are very dependable. I roasted 3 batches twice
    a week for over 7 years with one before the heating element burned out. Their main weakness is
    that the f...
