    I repeated the trub xBmt a couple months back, only I used the triangle test in the manner
    we've learned is best, results basically echo the first :)

    you'll get more hop flavor in the beer, and less on the nose. to oversimplify it- whirlpool is
    flavor, dry hop is aroma.I'm not terribly sure I still buy this conventional line of reasoning.

  • Posted in thread: What's more important-- yeast vitality or viable cell counts? New xBmt results! on 10-27-2015 at 12:58 PM
    The few vitality starters I've made have been with real wort from the mash. I just steal about
    800mL of second runnings in a flask, boil for about 5 min, chill in ice bath, pith yeast, then
    keep on st...

    Doubt it. All that narrowing the gap does is allow for faster conversion, so a shorter mash
    time. Your boost probably came from the longer mash and squeezing the heck out of the
    bag.Faster conversion ...

    Butt king wand? Sounds kinky.I'm not convinced bottling from the spigot is really all that

    Ya know, I disagree with this one.Even though I've gone through the process to be BCJP

    I think it shows just how variable everyone's taste buds are...Which is partially his point.
    Because our taste buds differ so much, many of our techniques don't matter that much as a whole

  • Posted in thread: Pumpkin Beer, hey how much pumpkin? on 10-05-2015 at 12:37 PM
    Bringing this one back from the dead! We compared 2 beers made from the same recipe with the
    same spicing where one received pumpkin and the other didn't. Did it make a difference? Results
    are in!

    Not a "beta-tester", so no bias here. Purchased a King Cobra recently and despite the price and
    wait time (3 weeks to ship) couldn't be more impressed with the performance. I live in SE

do you ever get any of that homebrew taste in your brews???
I also see you got some stuff for sale on craigs...

@malt20 Hey, Cole. Homebrew taste? I think I know what you're referring to, but I've only experienced it when using extract. I'd have to say most of my beers turnout quite well, which I think is primarily due to using good yeast starters and fermenting at the right temperature. If you'd care to try mine for yourself to see, you can come over sometime and taste ;) Seriously, feel free to text anytime.

I am selling some stuff due to getting new equipment. Let me know if you're interested in any of it.
