  • Currently brewing all-grain beers using a 5-gal mashtun with stainless steel braid and using a 6.5-gallon boil. I specialize in Koelsch, Pale Ales and their relatives, Witbiers, as well as Apfelwein-derivatives.

    I started out brewing with a Mr. Beer Kit, then moved on to extract with steeping grain kits, partial mash kits and ultimately custom partial mash and all-grain recipes. Austin Homebrew Supplies is my main supplier, although I have also had good luck with Midwest Supplies, Northern Brewer and Brewmasters Warehouse.

    I pasteurize my kombucha before kegging so that I don't have that problem, and I don't have to
    worry about infecting my lines.

    How would you describe the green character? Is it yeast bite from suspended yeast or is it
    metabolites like acetaldehyde?

    You can always toss some amylase enzyme into the fermentor - any decent homebrew shop should
    have amylase in powder form (and some have liquid preparations as well). It will work at
    ambient temperatur...

    Do your beers get past that initial green stage faster via room temp or cold storage? I keg, so
    I am typically packaging after 2-3 weeks in primary, but it seems it is usually another 2-3
    weeks before...

    Seven days in primary is an awfully short time. Based on my experience (and I taste homebrewed
    and craft brewed beer daily as part of my job), 10 days is about the minimum a beer should
    spend in prima...

    Why did you choose to do a secondary on this batch, and why did you transfer the beer while it
    was still cloudy? How long was the beer in primary before you transferred it?Pouring beer
