  • Posted in thread: Growing Arizona Hops - Questions on 06-04-2015 at 06:35 PM
    You can tell when they are ready to harvest by doing a dry-matter test. With an accurate scale,
    weigh several freshly picked cones. Then let them dry out for about 24 hours and weigh them
    again. The d...

    You like the taste of sea salt in beer but it doesn't taste salty. Obviously one is inclined to
    ask "If it doesn't taste salty what does it taste like?"To me it adds a "roundness" of taste.
    Fullness, ...

  • Posted in thread: could someone explain this water report? on 04-30-2015 at 04:14 PM
    True all that. My reply was incorrect. I should have mentioned I use a ceramic filter to remove
    iron. I happen to like the flavor of sea salt in the beer. I don't put it in the mash, and the
    amount is...

    Why?The filter will pull out the chlorine and iron, the sea salt will add roundness of flavor
    without making the water taste salty.

    Personally, I would run it through an activated carbon filter, and add about 4 grams of gray
    sea salt per 20 liters of water. It should be fine.

  • Posted in thread: EdWort's Apfelwein : Couple of Questions on 04-27-2015 at 09:11 PM
    I have an apfelwein made from unfiltered juice last fall. I tried to clarify with KC, and while
    some whitish sediment did fall out, the liquid is still quite cloudy. About the top 2 inches
    have cleare...

  • Posted in thread: New Years Resolution - win HB comp on 01-09-2014 at 07:00 PM
    Good advice here. My resolution is just to enter some comps so I'm in the same boat. I just
    started reading Brewing Better Beer and it's got some really good things to think about and
    apply, I'm not e...

  • Posted in thread: "Isomerization" in Hops??? on 01-07-2014 at 03:35 AM
    It's the isomerization that creates the bitterness-- converting one isomer of a hop acid into
    another. For a given amount of hop acids in the boil, the percentage that get isomerized is
    your utilizati...

  • Posted in thread: Calculate OG from ABV and Attenuation? on 01-07-2014 at 03:20 AM
    No, what I did was put 25 grams of sugar in a glass measuring cup and topped it up to the 250
    ml mark with water. Then I weighed the container and took the specific gravity of the solution.
    Now since ...

  • Posted in thread: Calculate OG from ABV and Attenuation? on 01-05-2014 at 01:14 AM
    A miracleIt is and it is but the 'points per pound' mentality is so engrained in home brewing
    that I don't think anything will ever get them to change. I guess I have my work cut out for me
    to convice...
