Posted in thread: S-05 vs Wyeast 1007 on 04-04-2013 at 07:50 PM
I've tried Bohemian Lager at an ale temperature for a Red Ale/Lager. It gets a little fruity
but maintains that lager flavor profile. That is a tough part to get across. Ale yeasts can be
clean but st...

The secondary is basically unnecessary. Give it extended time in the primary (particularly an
oxygen impervious container like a glass carboy). If you go through a d-rest (if necessary), it
should be ...

Oh yeah, and I am a Bohemian Lager Yeast fan (2024). I use it for everything.

Yeah, you could turn over a lager most likely every three weeks. I typically just use kegs for
conditioning. I don't call it lagering because there is not really any yeast in those kegs
(just what set...

Why do you plan on lagering 2-3 months in your conical? You say that you have temp control. Are
your beers prone to diacetyl that would require that much time? If not, then would a glass
Posted in thread: Lager Thread on 03-27-2013 at 03:11 PM
For experienced lager brewers, I would like to compare results. I have found that lager brewing
and conditioning takes perhaps half the time as what most of the outdated brew-books state.
With a prope...
Posted in thread: Homebrewing myths that need to die on 03-27-2013 at 03:00 PM
I would also like to kill the lager myth. Lagers with a proper starter, good fermentation
control, and a solid cold crash can truly be mature and ready to drink in little over a month.
The new rule sh...
Posted in thread: Partial mash & late extract addition? on 03-18-2013 at 03:51 PM
I did the PM with late extract for a while. The PM would give me enough sugars for hops
utilization. I would add my extract with 15 to flame out in order to give enough time to
sterilize and get the e...

Yeah, I've tried my hand at some psuedo decoctions. I was even contemplating a single decoction
for this recipe. That would surely enhance the caramel/butterscotch elements.
Posted in thread: Help make this Doppelbock special on 02-01-2013 at 09:06 PM
Thanks for the confirmation. I used the Special B as an example because of a bottle of
Maximator that I recently enjoyed. I've seen very few "extreme" doppelbocks that keep a
relatively low OG, so I a...
