    Sorry if I missed it, did you use the 05? Had another one of the commercial versions the other
    day, I still feel like they're using something else that's a little fruitier.

    OK, so I made the beer above. Using us05 dry yeast. Fermented in the high 50s/low 60s. It
    tastes good, but has a dry - kind of top of the toung - bitter-grainy like aftertaste. Is this
    a normal wheat ...

    15-18 psi at 1*C is going to give you over 3 vols of CO2. I think you always lose a little
    carbonation bottling from the keg, for me it's not enough to worry about as I'm usually just
    bottling a six o...

  • Posted in thread: BU:GU ratio and crystal malts on 04-17-2014 at 02:21 AM
    Yes, you can have a perfectly acceptable BU:GU ratio and still mess up with a bad recipe. BU:GU
    is one tool to use, or target to aim for, in designing a good beer but it is far from the whole

    If you think the beer is too big then just decrease the grainbill a bit. If it's the estimated
    high FG that you're worried about then you can swap out some base malt for sugar - I often do
    5-7% for a ...

    I was and maybe still am having problems with holding pressure. I found that my pressure relief
    valve was leaking and replaced it with another one. I is not bubbling anywhere. I am trying to

    Yeah, I would suspect crush before grain quality, are you ordering pre-crushed? I've had no
    problem with whole grains from them. They sell grains from a variety of different maltsters and
    as far as I ...

    White Labs calls WLP002 flocculation "very high". They lie. Or at least are grossly
    understating the case. If I have to step up a starter, the yeast cake from the first step will
    stay in clumps no mat...
