  • Posted in thread: Barleywine questions on 07-07-2014 at 12:48 AM
    Hey all, I just brewed a barleywine a bit ago and I have a couple questions. I did end up using
    some malt extract, but it was still a hefty mash! It's been fermenting for about a week now,
    but I defin...

    The tour at Anchor is a really good one. You just call them up, see when a tour spot is
    available, have them put your name down, and then go over to San Francisco for the weekend! The
    tour doesn't cos...

    My rootbeer has been great! I took the whole keg setup to a 4th of July picnic and everyone
    enjoyed it. The flavor is nice and I'm happy with the Gnome extract that I used; although, I
    probably will d...

    I have a yeast starter i'm a bit concerned about. It's the wyeast 1056 strain, and i used it to
    ferment three batches of beer so far (all pale ales). I saved the yeast by washing it into a 1
    gal jug a...

  • Posted in thread: 1056 ester profile on 06-30-2014 at 08:14 PM
    I use 1056 very often and haven't noticed any STRONG ester aromas. It is a very clean
    fermenting yeast. What was your pitch rate? I'm guessing you may have under pitched a bit
    because any yeast strain...

    I have had yeast starters completely mess up the color in otherwise excellent beers. I couldn't
    care less about color compared to taste, but I have definitely noticed that happening too.

    Hey, glad to hear your brewed it too! I've been drinking mine recently and it turned out very
    well! I think it's a lot like Anchor's, but my older citra dry hops did contribute a kind of
    subtle herbal...

    I will look into getting some longer tubing then. I figured i'd carbonate it at 30-50psi while
    cold, get it nice and carbed, then release some of the pressure and push it out at like 10psi.
    I am new t...

    Thanks for the advice. I think I will add a bit of vanilla. I knew the rootbeer won't come out,
    so I just bought another corney keg to have one dedicated to rootbeer although, I was planning
    on using ...
