  • Posted in thread: Autolysis. on 01-02-2015 at 11:25 PM
    I've experienced autolysis once. It was a beer that I let sit on the yeast for almost 9 months.

    I'd say you also want to take a look at your water. Stout is a style that you can have the best

    I once aged a stout on oak cubes for a year before bottling and spaces out and forgot to add
    yeast. It still carbed up, it just took longer. Not that I advocate doing that on purpose but
    it worked.At ...
