    Not to hijack, but i can also lend my opinion. I think WLP023 is cleaner than WY1275. Pitch the
    appropriate amount of yeast and run a fermentation around 65 degrees and you would have a nice
    bitter, n...

    Cool, thanks again. Is there one of the 3 that you list which you like the best? Is one the
    "cleanest" tasting?

    Thanks for the responses. You are right, the main English yeast I have worked with is s-04 and
    I didn't care for the flavors it thru off. I also used Windsor once and found a similar, but
    different tw...

    If you brew a light colored beer with no adjustments, your pH will be higher than optimal. In
    addition to perhaps sluggish or poor conversion in the mash, this tends to lead to insipid
    tasting beers.W...

    Ok so I called and got my report and it turns out I have hard water. I tend to brew more light
    colored beers so is it gypsum I would want to add? What would be the effect of brewing a light
    colored be...

    Now that I have gone all grain I am trying to get a better understanding of the whole water
