Posted in thread: To Secondary or Not? John Palmer and Jamil Zainasheff Weigh In on 05-01-2013 at 08:08 PM
But in response to the poster who doesn't want to tie up his ferm chamber, know that there are
a number of folks here who make great beer and go flame-to-glass in 10-14 days as a regular
Posted in thread: To Secondary or Not? John Palmer and Jamil Zainasheff Weigh In on 05-01-2013 at 06:10 PM
I have a question for the HBT experts and long primary folks - How long is it necessary to keep
your fermenting beers in a precise temp controlled chamber?I ask this because in the interest
of saving ...

I'd be interested to see the exact same experiment done, only to see you introduce a third
sample pitched with 35bil free floating cells. I'd venture it would taste similar to the bead
beer in terms o...

I don't know why exactly that lead to a more bitter beer at this point. It could be that the
cleaner profile simply allowed the existing alphas to shine through better, but it could also
be that the r...
Posted in thread: Is early tasting indicate a good indicator? on 04-11-2013 at 04:44 PM
I find that the yeast choice really impacts the flavor profiles along the way. For example,
BRY97 really hammers hop flavors as it finishes. I might taste a beer from a hydro sample at a
week and thin...

I would think you're going to want to bring it back down to sub 60. I assume you're going to do
a significant length secondary as well as conditioning the beer - so you have a bit more leeway
on off f...
Posted in thread: Why do we say 3 weeks in keg? on 04-10-2013 at 03:32 PM
Perhaps I'm not making myself clear...Lets say I brew 10 gallons. I leave the beer in primary
for 3 weeks and the rack to 2x 5 gallon corny kegs. Keg #1: I put under pressure and leave
sitting 3 weeks...

So far as I know, the inhibitive property of yeast, as you put it, is based on production of
alcohol, lowering of pH, and rapid consumption of the food that competing organisms would
consume. All of w...

My biggest concern is bacterial infection. Pitching yeast is the equivalent of an airplane
taking off. If something goes wrong, all is lost.I would think that the quick yeast start is
likely to reduce...
Posted in thread: Expedited and Efficient Fermentation on 04-09-2013 at 03:21 PM
Random idea/question: Since the yeast in these beads don't reproduce and this supposedly
doesn't affect the flavor any, could you get a bigger bucket and up the concentration of the
beads to make ferm...
