  • Posted in thread: Is Cream Ale supposed to be clear? on 12-14-2014 at 04:54 AM
    Since this is in the extract forum you may not be able to (have a large enough fridge) cold
    crash. Add some gelatin to the secondary to help clear.If it's a little hazy it's not the end
    of the world.

    A couple weeks later the beer is hanging in there. It still tastes good, and as long as it is
    poured very slowly does not foam too much. I think it was just overly carbonated, and perhaps a
    few of the...

  • Posted in thread: Those who've used Kolsch Yeast on 11-13-2014 at 11:34 PM
    I've used WLP029 and 1056 in a cream ale. I think the kolsch yeast works better personally.

  • Posted in thread: WLP004 for Imperial Stout? on 11-13-2014 at 04:25 AM
    WLP004 has the alcohol tolerance for an imperial, but attenuation is a bit on the low side. The
    recipe as is might come out a little sweet. I'd adjust the gravity down a few points. Sent from

    The good news is the beer came out quite good. The bad news is that I am afraid the beer became
    infected at bottling. The bottles aren't gushing, but the beer is very foamy. Even when poured
    slowly th...

    S04 is always good. It's not as fruity as a lot of English strains, but it starts quickly and
    clears nicely. I'd be comfortable using it in any English or American beer. I used Notty last
    week for the...

    To paraphrase Rogers Hornsby, I'm staring out the window wishing it wasn't raining so I could
    brew today. Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

  • Posted in thread: Increase ABV of Extract Brew on 11-01-2014 at 04:25 PM
    What about adding 1 lb of clover honey at the end of the boil? I'm brewing a light ale right
    now with an abv of 3.7 and was looking to increase it a little.That would work perfectly in a
    blonde ale. S...
