    I've gone 3 generations with it (helles - dunkel - pilsner). No issues whatsoever. Only stopped
    cos I needed a change. Obviously the usual caveats apply - good sanitation, appropriate pitch
    rates, don...

    That's kinda what made me think of it - but my version has three variables using just the one
    hop.Then again, that might make it less viable for him to test... hmm...Yeah, his triangle test
    would prob...

    Not sure if you've seen this - He's already on to it

    I realise that after some tense times, this thread has finally reached a kind of uneasy truce,
    so I'm somewhat reluctant to post, but I was trying something new with my brett/sour fermenter
    and though...

    standards you under pitched by 50% (assuming you made 5 gallons). I too have found that if you
    repitch the s...

    Water chemistry is a huge and potentially very confusing topic. You may be oversimplifying
    things a little. A few points/questions1. Your water pH is pretty much irrelevant, your waters
    alkalinity is ...

    Personally, I'd lose the crystal malt, especially if you want a crisp finish. I like some malt
    character but don't really like sweetness.Also, you need to charge your phone...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle Harvesting Saison Dupont on 03-06-2015 at 12:06 PM
    I've heard people saying that the yeast harvested from the bottle is much easier to deal with
    and less prone to stalling than the strains White Labs and Wyeast sell.Totally agree. I've used
    cultured d...

  • Posted in thread: Baking soda to bump up ph? on 01-29-2015 at 05:21 AM
