    I had two pots of water, one clean boiled top-off water, the other just warm water with an
    dirty can of malt extract sitting in it to warm it up.After I was ready to top off my primary,
    I grabbed the ...

    Lots of good advice here. I never knew about storing the starsan either. Thanks for the heads
    up.

    I'm aware of scottish ale 1728 having a "smoky" phenol character to it that would be considered
    normal/acceptable, however I've never perceived this character in my many times of using this
    yeast (I m...

    Yes, some phenols are perceived as "smoky". That normally signals the presence of an
    infection.Damn. I starsan soak everything all the time. I even store my empties full of

  • Posted in thread: Brewers Best Conditioning Tabs - recommendations for 22oz bombers? on 04-14-2013 at 03:40 PM
    Generally it's two tabs for a 24oz, one for a 12oz. I'm thinking it would be two, but may risk
    slight over carbonating?

    What was your water profile like?The water I used? NYC tap.

  • Posted in thread: Help! Fizzy wheat beer with no head or flavor. (carbed correctly) on 04-14-2013 at 03:00 PM
    Well, the recipe is for a wheat beer, true, but remember that wheat extract is about 35% wheat
    and 65% barley, so it's still predominantly a barley beer, but with wheat in it. The yeast
    strain you use...

  • Posted in thread: True Brew Oktoberfest lager Question on 04-14-2013 at 02:37 PM
    UPDATE!Well, it has been a long road. After fermentation and a diacetyl rest, I put it in my
    chest freezer at 32 degrees for 2 months and 5 days. I force carbed it last Friday, and had my
    first pint l...
