  • Transitioned into it through wine and mead-making, bought ingredients for 1st failed batch few days before 21st birthday and been enjoying the process ever since. Recently made a 2 gallon cooler MLT and started experimenting with 1 gallon all-grain batches- adds so much more to the process and taste. Amber ales, porters, stouts, IPAs, a barleywine, blonde ales, and wheats, a hefeweizen, banana wine, strawberry wine, mead, spiced mead, apple pie wine.

    Can ferment a blonde ale with white wine yeast, I've tried it before and was well received.
    I've also seen it mentioned recently where someone did a smash with pils and Nelson Hops,
    fermented with Bel...

    Exact same recipes in terms of malt 48.7% 2 row, 48.7% wheat and 2.5% acid malt. The first had
    4 IBUs and 2nd had 3 IBUs of old EKG. 1st batch started at 1.035 and finished at 1.006. Which
    seems commo...

    I pitched the dregs from a Hottenroth bottle into a gallon batch and got a nicely tart Berliner
    Weiss that I bottled up in 3 weeks time. No other yeast was added. I then pitched the leftovers
    from tha...

  • Posted in thread: Saison recipes that shove the yeast flavors into the back seat? on 06-01-2015 at 08:54 PM
    Belle Saison yeast is pretty much like a wheat yeast, I didn't get much out of it fermenting
    around 75-80.

    I've never used 6 row in my cream ale because there is talk about it adding a grainy character.
    Of course I wouldn't know because I've never used it. I usually do about 80% 2 row and 20%
    flaked corn, ...

    I would also suggest water chemistry as the source of problems. My first major improvement to
    my beers was solid fermentation temp control; how do you control this aspect? Then mash ph

    I received my MW102 pH meter about 8 days ago, calibrated it, and have already put it to good
    use. Thanks for the sound advice, after looking at EZ Water and Bru'n Water spreadsheets, I
    ditched this 1...

    Irish moss helped me a tiny bit but recently I have started adjusting my water chemistry. Every
    batch that I have added CaCl to has been crystal clear and without chill haze. Palmers website
    has a ref...
