What's your opinion on iron leaching from stainless, given my earlier post about Sierra Nevada
testing for it?If you are interested in testing your passivation, you could look into this:

I have not used Conan, but I did use wlp644 for a Berliner. It lent noticeably fruity eaters
that pushed it out of style for competition, but was darn tasty none the less.

Exactly this. So if you are making AMAZING IPA's so good you've dumped the unfinished kegs of
every one you made before you figured it out, what're your additions to the same distilled/RO
you were so ...

That's a good point however with fermenting you do have means to know if the yeast are working
as you planned such as gravity, pH drop and evolution of CO2. Whereas with the scavenging you
cant tell w...

Because it has taken a different amount of time each time, a different yeast strain was used,

I just realized something after looking a bit closer at your original post. 6.5 brix isn't
1.009, it's closer to 1.026. You can use this calculator here to check: far as the rest of
what I was sayin...

Hmmm...most people have the opposite problem, the refractometer reads much higher than the
hydrometer. That is because refractometer readings are distorted by the presence of alcohol. I
wish I could b...

Wait. Are you saying that your elevation, and correspondingly lower atmospheric pressure,
reduces the boiling point of water but not the boiling point of the hop oil?Doesn't seem
logical, but it's ent...
