    ABOUT ME

  • Recently (June 2012) got "back" into homebrewing, did one extract kit 12 years ago, two more about 6 years ago. Am full in now, based on the awesome results I've which are largely due to online resources like this forum. Have brewed 9 batches since June 2012, building my pipeline. 5 of these batches are at drinking age now, 4 are conditioning.

    That's what I wanted to know thanks. It seems like wee heavy would be a good beer to add Brett
    too with all the residual sugar but not in the bottle, better do it in the secondary

    Here's what I'm thinking now. I have plenty of Belgian 750's, corks and cages. Thinking of
    getting a brett culture and adding it to the 5 gallon batch while bottling. Beer is 1.076 OG
    and 1.021 now, W...

    I have a wee heavy, 7.5%, been aging since January in a better bottle with some oak chips
    soaked in bourbon. Second time using the chips and little to no flavor from them, and no
    infections at all. I ...

    Sounds good. What temp are fermenting at and what yeast?

    No not yet, I bought some strips but they literally don't work at all, nothing makes them
    change color. I need to invest in a meter.

    Well hit my numbers and then some, ended up at 1.054, targeting 1.050. Wort tastes awesome,
    going to be a great Helles I hope. I think Helles is becoming my favorite beer

    Also I'm using metro Atlanta water and only adding Camden tablets. Our water profile is pretty
    good for brewing

    All I can say about 5.2 stabilizer is that the only thing I changed in my process I was using
    that and my efficiency went up 8 to 10 points

    Thanks, so at least for this batch I won't use it. I read in an article in BYO The author put
    in a pinch of gypsum with each decoction, do you think that is necessary?

  • Posted in thread: 5.2 stabilizer with a triple decoction mash? on 09-12-2015 at 05:10 PM
    It's worked awesome for me, before I was using it I wasn't getting nearly the efficiency, in
    the 60s I started using that and it went right up to low 70s, I love it. But I'm wondering if I
    need it for...
