    Haven't been on here in a while but saw this question. I mashed at 150F for 75mins. I do BIAB
    in a big pot so this was a pretty simple single infusion. Did a sparge of sorts, letting the
    bag drain and...

  • Posted in thread: Do hefeweizen's typically smell sour when opening the fermenter? on 02-05-2011 at 09:24 PM
    I bottled a dunkel with 3068 recently and it had a sour smell. Like the typical banana you get
    from a hefe mixed with a sour bite. Just had a bottle and can safely say that it tastes (and
    smells) just...

    So brew-in-a-bag results in more trub? I've never heard that. I've only done BIAB so I have no
    frame of reference... I always figured that the grain and strainer bag was acting as a filter
    just as muc...

    I too needed a huge blowoff tube for 3068. I had been warned fortunately so I was all set.
    Bottled my batch last week after an extended primary (got busy and never had a chance to
    bottle). Sample tast...

  • Posted in thread: Beer Carbonation in bottles not happening too well on 01-27-2011 at 03:25 AM
    Using carb tabs rules out a problem with the amount of priming sugar or with the priming
    solution not being properly mixed. If the bottles have spent 3+ weeks at room temp and aren't
    carbed, then mayb...

  • Posted in thread: Berliner Weisse decoction (Partial Mash) on 01-17-2011 at 01:08 PM
    I have mixed feelings. It turned out very drinkable. Very lively carbonation, a slight acidic
    twang, and a good grainy/wheaty character. But it did not get as sour as I would have liked. I
    attribute t...

    Personally, I would go easy on the dry hopping with NS in a saison. The nelson sauvin hops are
    pretty pungent and it will probably take a bit of adjusting to balance the saison yeast with
    the hops uni...

  • Posted in thread: Questions about BIAB and first AG brew! on 12-28-2010 at 01:52 PM
    Great advice. There are a million ways to brew and in my (limited) experience, it's pretty hard
    to mess up. Enjoy!

    I find I get better results with a little lower grain to water ratio - about 5 gallons per 10
    lbs (or 2 qt per lb). Then I batch sparge and add the second runnings til I hit my target
    gravity (and hop...

    Haven't seen much posted on these types of recipes. I've heard of smoked hefeweizen, though
    never tasted one. But its winter and dark beers seem more appropriate, so I just brewed a
    smoked dunkelweize...
