  • Posted in thread: My young weizenbock tastes hot on 02-08-2016 at 11:41 AM
    I just opened a bottle after two weeks bottle conditioning and I can taste the alcohol and its
    overshadowing the maltiness. I know the beer is still green but is the alcohol taste a common
    green beer ...

    I think you will stick with this hobby for quite a while and will probably want to make all
    grain batches in the future (HEY! Tomorrow is in the future so think about that) and with that
    I think your ...

    No, it was 40C before I drained from the urn into the plastic fermenter and got the wort off
    the hot break and hops. Didn't want the fermenter to warp from the heat. I pitched at 23C the
    next mornin...

    5-7 days fridge time can settle them down & make them more easily pourable. Clearer too by
    compacting the yeast & trub on the bottom of the bottle.If you open a beer that hasn't been
    bottled long, the...

    The first batch I made that featured Mt. Hood hops I hated...until I had drunk most of the
    batch. Within a few months I craved that flavor and had to make anther batch.

    I used Nottingham, fermented between 65-67 for three weeks.Blame the Nottingham for the fruity
    or citrus aroma. At those temperatures it will throw off some esters. Try another batch but
    ferment this ...

    Went to rack the beer, checked the gravity. It's @ 1.010. I figured it's almost 2 weeks, I
    think all the fermentables are fermented, why not keg it now? Didn't realize that my Co2
    bottle was empty. S...

    1. Get rid of the basket. It takes up room in the pot so your grains are more constrained. You
    need all the water to have access to the grains, not some of it outside the basket where is
    just sits. Ge...

  • Posted in thread: Conditioning Grain Question on 02-07-2016 at 11:58 AM
    Conditioning the grain does two things depending on how long you wait after adding the small
    amount of water. With only a short wait, that water addition will make the husks tougher so
    they don't shre...

    Woodland Brewing Research has done some studies on yeast viability over time and yeast growth
    in starters. I find that these studies come to different conclusions than what is reported by
    Brewers frie...
