    I would bet that the sweet flavor is phenols or esters produced at the higher temp during
    reproduction. Did you tast any other slightly of flavors or excessive fruity/alcohol flavors?
    That would also ...

  • Posted in thread: will this boil ~2 gallons on 07-28-2014 at 09:43 PM
    yes it would, the narrower the kettle the more vigorous of a boil you will get. that being said
    this one will be able to do more and is cheaper: only problem I have with either is that they
    don't hav...

  • Posted in thread: Whats a good size kettle? on 07-22-2014 at 09:46 PM
    I like 10 gallons or so for 5 gallon batches (I use a 11 gallon king kooker from cabelas that
    is nearly identical to the 11 gallon bayou classic that is widely available). If you find a
    larger kettle ...

    that is a nice cheap option especially for a hot liquor or speeding up a stove /120v kettle to
    boil. only thing that might be weird about boiling with them is they are so short that you
    might not get ...

  • Posted in thread: Twin 5 gallon urn conversion... on 06-30-2014 at 11:11 PM
    The only minor issue I can see is that the heating elements appear to be in the outer water
    bath around the two urns, so using those alone to achieve a boil might not work (the water
    around can only g...

    I rish moss will set (we used to make a pudding/jello type of thing with it) if concentrated
    enough, could be that it settled into your valve during chilling and set.

  • Posted in thread: Hot Yeast Cake? on 04-09-2014 at 09:15 PM
    I would not store fermented beer at 90 for any reason (maybe during active fermentation for a
    short time and only under special circumstances), I would just let go low and slow. If you are
    bent on the...

    Not doubting you, but then again I never heard this before. Do you have a reference? I'd like
    to read up on this. Thanks!This is an article about using yeast to remove heavy metals from
    solution (the ...

  • Posted in thread: galvanized anything will kill you! on 03-13-2014 at 05:11 PM
    two things that seems to be left out of these discussions are dose and yeast. Dose: the amount
    of zinc that will dissolve in to a batch of beer and subsequently end up in each bottle is not
    likely to ...
