  • Posted in thread: Can't figure out my problem on 04-09-2016 at 12:45 PM
    It's not yet kegged, only on day 7 in primary. I used baking soda and a little chalk in the
    mash (I know the chalk doesn't completely dissolve but figured some is better than none, and
    I'm not sure I ...

    So, not great news. I tasted the Baltic porter and it's fairly astringent, but no medicine. I
    can taste a nice beer in there but it's just ruined by this astringency. Getting quite
    frustrated. Maybe i...

    There shouldn't be any issues in the plumbing in the house if that's what you mean. The house
    is only 10 years old, I can't see there being any major issues. Could definitely be wrong
    though, there ha...

    Thanks for the responses. I think I can rule out specific ingredients. I don't want to write up
    the details of every batch but I've used several different yeasts with a handful of different
    hops with ...

    I don't want to go into a crazy amount of detail (unless people want it), but I've been having
    trouble lately getting consistent good tasting brews. My main concerns are contamination,
    chloramines, or...

  • 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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Baltic Porter Critique on 02-05-2016 at 05:05 PM
    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).

  • Posted in thread: Brewing with lacto advice on 08-07-2015 at 03:42 PM
    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...
