  • Posted in thread: Baltic Porter Critique on 02-05-2016 at 05:42 PM
    Both good suggestions. I figured I'd get a little hint of the dark fruit from the C120, but if
    the special B is better suited maybe I'll switch it. Think the same amount as what I have for
    C120 would ...

    Just looking for some input on a Baltic Porter Recipe. I'm shooting for just over 8%, and
    brewing it at the low end of ale temps rather than as a lager just because I have an altbier
    sitting on a WY10...

  • Posted in thread: Missed my OG by a few points, should FG be off by the same amount? on 01-06-2016 at 06:54 PM
    Attenuation will be about the same but it's a percentage, not a specific number of points. So
    if you miss your OG by 5 points your FG might only be 1 point lower. That's how it's generally
    gone in my ...

    My first pellicle. Basically Rare Barrel golden base recipe, Wyeast 1968 primary and two pretty
    old vials of WLP665 (got for 2 bucks each due to age).

    I recently used probiotics for a kettle sour that worked out pretty well. I kept the kettle in
    a small bathroom with the heat at about 25C (I'm in NL so we definitely do not get ambient
    temps suitable...

    2061, I broke one on each of my last two brews. First one lasted 3 years, second about 3 days

  • Posted in thread: 5 brews for summer... go! on 04-02-2015 at 05:00 PM
    My next few brews will be:Vienna Lager (already fermenting but will probably still be in the
    keg by the time summer starts)HefeweizenBerliner Weisse (probably a split batch from hefe
    grist)ESB (not sp...

  • Posted in thread: hefe help/wy3068 conditioning on 03-18-2015 at 06:48 PM
    I would think warm would be better, I'm not positive since I haven't dealt with that exact
    problem before, but I left my last hefe (same grain, yeast and ferm temp) for about 17 or 18
    days (total from...

    I wouldn't worry about oxidation unless it's staying in there for a long time. I've done a good
    few 2.5 gallon batches in a carboy and haven't had any issues. The CO2 from the fermentation
    will push a...

  • Posted in thread: Hit pre-boil gravity/volume, but OG 9 points lower and volume lower than expected on 02-09-2014 at 12:59 AM
    How did you measure your gravity? I've definitely had this problem using a refractometer. Over
    time figured out it's good to do a few measures each time I want to check the gravity because
    they can be...
