Posted in thread: What colors do hops impart to beer? on 04-25-2013 at 05:23 AM
I suppose that depends on what you mean by 'completely different'. Sticking with all malt beers
(i.e. no Krieks or Framboises) I'm guessing beers with the same SRM probably wouldn't be more
than 10 un...

SRM (which is derived from a single absorption measurement taken at the blue end (430 nm). It
also explains why beer is essentially red. Shine a flashlight through a carboy of fermenting
light beer. D...
Posted in thread: Specific proteases for reduction of chill haze on 04-24-2013 at 12:14 AM
In the interest of science, I'm trying to gather some info on the use of various protease
enzymes to clarify beer. Has anyone used a serine protease like papain conjugates or
Amino-Quik? Or a proline ...

The IBUs won't change with aging- how bitter the beer is.The IBU's may not change but the
perceived sweetness does. Depending on the time frame you may want to over hop the beer. This

Beer is usually yellow to black with browns and amber hues in between (SRM scale etc..) so my

Boomer, if I end up with higher dextrins than normal, that should help mask any

If it is in fact DMS, just chill it down to under 185ºF at flameout and then do your hop stand.
SMM doesn't convert under 185ºF.The SMM to DMS conversion does take place under 185* its just
slow. The ...

I get back to my mash about 40 minutes later and discover the mash temperature is only about
130 degrees...I was already mashing a bit on the thin side...let it sit like that for another
40 minutes or...
Posted in thread: 2000 watts v. 1700 watts for RIMS on 05-18-2012 at 02:09 AM
So according to the electric heat spread sheet I have it takes 5 minutes for 1700 watts to heat
5 gallons of water 10*F and 4 minutes for 2000 watts. Also it looks like the 1700 watt is 13
1/2 inchs l...

If your looking for pure tasteless ethanol contact a local university, they usually have it by
the tank load and sell it in gallon increments. You can get near pure (190 proof) or pure (200
