  • Posted in thread: Looking for edelweiss beer recipe. on 07-08-2014 at 05:17 PM
    How did the ester/phenol come out? I'm going down this road and I have a good slurry of White
    Labs Hefeweizen yeast. I was wondering what your pitching rate was and if you noted the
    clove/banana chara...

  • Posted in thread: Iodine starch conversion on wheat beers on 06-30-2014 at 03:40 PM
    I think much of your problem with conversion on wheat is due to the nature of the wheat kernel.
    Wheat is smaller and harder than barley so you often get a poorer crush on wheat. That poorer
    crush mean...

    I'm ending a 120 minute mash with 40% wheat. It took a very long time, obviously, to convert
    with an iodine test. I had to decoct 2 gallons just to keep in my target mash temp. Which was
    148f for thi...

    What's this $30 for a 12 oz can? Anyways, it's still the #1 selling beer in America.

    What about viability of the yeast?

  • Posted in thread: Primary only vs. secondary on 06-24-2014 at 08:39 PM
    I always move my beer off the primary and into a secondary fermenter, no matter the "aging"
    times. I Crash cool and then rack into the secondary to further clear the beer. By leaving the
    sediment behi...

  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 06-19-2014 at 08:37 PM
    I'm doing a hefe weiss, Bavarian, but breaking away from that by adding pasteurized honey to
    high krausen.

    No fermentation chamber. Its a fermentation room that is climate controlled to 70f for this
    beer. But it does fluctuate a couple of degrees.

  • Posted in thread: S airlock ran backwards on 06-16-2014 at 07:57 PM
    I know. Its the oddest thing. A temp shift of a degree or two shouldn't, I don't think, make an
    air lock run backwards. In any event, I'm racking into a secondary later today. I gravity has
    dropped fr...
