Thanks! Can't wait to try out next batch. One final question- I presume the reason for keeping
the temps low is because you ferment wild yeast or bacteria at higher temps. True?

Appreciate the comments and I think temp may have something to do with it. If I tend to be a
little sloppy, it's in that category. I sometimes ferment on the back porch when temps in South

I'd like to consider myself at least not a newby anymore as I have brewed about 21 batches, but
I am still having a little problem. Many batches (maybe 1/4 to 1/3) seem to have an "off"

Thanks all. I'm going to keep going with what I have and just make sure to use plenty of

Thanks for all the comments. BTW, I did only dry hop for 3-4 days, sorry for misleading there.
I was wondering about contamination. I did nothing different with this batch, but boy, it's

I know, I know, there is a ton of info on fermentation and I think I have read it all, but I

Thanks. A to the point answer. I will be doing a Pale Ale (Sierra Nevada type) next so will try

As the title suggests, I'm looking for guidance on when dry hopping isadvantageous. I have only
done it once (on Old Peculiar, where a friend recommended it). I guess I'd like to know the
