Posted in thread: Getting the right flavour characteristics out of hops on 08-27-2015 at 04:48 PM
Yup definitely can manipulate hop characteristics by adjusting the timing and temperature of
addition. Unfortunately, a lot of this comes from trial and error. The best way to learn about
a hop is wor...

If you don't mind, details would be nice. I'd be interested to see what your experiences are.

probably not a problem. I would have thought that the bottles with a hop pellet in them would
have all foamed more than normal. I'll bet you just opened it too soon after chilling and that,
plus the p...

My original miscalculation was based on beersmith number. It's why your target OG was 1.065 and
you actually had 1.081. If you plug in the same exact numbers as all grain you get the correct

making the grav...

Let it go. Hope it has a lacto infection and maybe you have just made the first black Berliner
Weiss. Seriously though, you need to buy a kit beer with good instructions or have an
experienced brewer ...

to. If that still gives you a reading of .0994 you will add .006 to any reading that you get.

I posted this up in fermentation/yeast and after nearly a day with no responses decided it may
be better here. Sorry for the double post, but here it is.So recently I picked up an infection.

So recently I picked up an infection. Luckily it looks to be confined to only a single mason
jar. However, said mason jar nearly blew its lid in the refrigerator. Since it smelled and
tasted good I de...
