    It doesn't seem like it's anything that should be too hot. I've used 9+ lbs of DME before
    without real issues with alcohol heat, especially after 9 months. This is off topic, but what
    was the FG with ...

    Um, you know what nail polish remover tastes like?Is it an high alcohol like heat? Fusel
    alcohols are produced by yeast under stress. Or, is it more medicinal/plasticy, that could
    either be chlorophen...

    So this beer was in primary fermentation for 9 months? Or did you move it to a secondary at
    some point?I'm *really* new to brewing, so don't take my word for it, but 9 months seems like a
    very long ti...

    Have you ruled out acetobacter, which can also apparently cause nail polish remover odors?I was
    thinking about throwing all of my tubing just in case. It's cheap enough so I think it would be
    worth it...

    I would think it could be three things: 1) fermentation at high temperatures 2)over pitching of
    yeast 3) or you left your beer to long on the trubSounds good. I did have to repitch the yeast
    during bo...

    I brewed my last batch last August (a spin off of Southern Tier Creme Brulee stout) but I only
    bottled in late April. The batch has a very high smell and taste of nail polish remover.I
    looked and saw ...

    Jeez, should sell the rights to that story to the writers of House. Congratulations on the
    recovery, the job, and... well I won't jinx the beer. Should market that beer recipe, "Age as
    long as it take...

    Glad you are well again. That is a rough story. At least you're back brewing ...that is good
    therapy.Edit - how is the beer?Thanks, much appreciated. Brewing is good therapy and I plan on
    brewing up e...

    Last August I brewed a stout and had plans to bottle it that same month. Unfortunately things
    took a turn for the worst and I just bottled it tonight. So basically last August I had come
    down with an ...

  • Posted in thread: I know octoberfest is a lager but? on 09-07-2010 at 02:45 AM
    I'm going to be trying a Oktoberfest, but I don't have the ability to lager. Many folks have
    said that using a Kolsch yeast with a proper recipe will give your beer that Oktoberfest-like
    flavor. Here'...
