  • Posted in thread: rookie wild yeast question on 05-05-2010 at 03:39 AM
    I did a quick search and found some surface yeasts, in particular Candida, that also produce
    acetic acid and therefore Ethyl acetate.Both surface yeasts and acetobactor need oxygen to
    compete with oth...

    nail polish remover smell is Ethyl Acetate. It is formed due to the reaction of Ethanol and
    Acetic Acid. I would guess you have acetobacter in you mixed culture but other bugs can make
    this too.

    I am making a similar beer right now. I plan to crush and then steam/sanitaize the coriander,
    and add in the secondary with my dry hops. I thought this would add more delicate and volitile

    As for the oak chips I would recommend going small, maybe an ounce of medium toast/ 5gallons

    chips are ma...

    I dont know the amount of O2 in distilled water. Why do your feel compelled to use it in the
    first place? Are you trying to make a Pilzen lager style with very low mineral water?

    I would dump it and start over.Alternatively you could brew a second batch of high alcohol
    cider/apple wine and blend them to create a semi-sweet more desert style batch. If you could
    force carbontate...

    Roomates! He prolly ate your leftover pizza with the beer, left the dishes in the sink and then
    used your towel after his shower....Seriously though, thanks for the Cocoa tips.

    why wait to add the maple syrup and molasses at secondary? if you add enough to make a
    difference you will start a rigorous fermentation anyway. I would add it to the boil just like
    adding Barley Syru...

    Great chocolate lesson! I would love more tips from others on brewing with chocolate. Do you
    add cocoa powder during the boil? Mash? Add an liquid infusion at secondary? I think most of
    the 'chocolate...
