Posted in thread: Best all around British Ale yeast opinions wanted! on 03-21-2016 at 12:09 AM
This is a difficult question not only because there are so many great British yeasts available
these days, but there is also a general lack of understanding of how to best use these yeasts.
Posted in thread: Changes in pH depending on when it is taken in the Mash on 03-04-2016 at 07:03 PM
I use a calibrated Hach HQ11D pH meter and the EZ water calculator is always off. I've never
had that thing get close. Bru'N Water is usually within 0.1-1.5 of the estimated pH. That said,

Can you elaborate? Or point me to a thread or source which goes into detail? Or can I PM you?

Posted in thread: English Ales - What's your favorite recipe? on 02-19-2016 at 06:40 PM
KeyKegs filled in the states are utilized as a disposable keg for one way transit. Beer is
force carbonated and served on tap as normal. Haven't seen a keykeg you prime here in the US,

Posted in thread: Effects of fermenting Wyeast 1335 British Ale II too cold? on 02-17-2016 at 06:00 PM
