    OP, this is something I'm not familiar with - what's the connection between slow wort chilling
    and yeasty flavor?I'm kinda new at this, so I'm probably not the right guy to answer, but...
    I'm pretty s...

    OP -- what's your situation re temperature control and fermentation time?I converted an old
    upright freezer to a beer cooler, so I can ferment at whatever temp I choose. Right now I have
    a Magic Hat #...

    Proper pouring procedures will eliminate the bottle dregs.My main refrigerator - the one in my
    kitchen - has storage for soda or beer cans or bottles in the door, and they're at a 45 degree
    angle or s...

    OP, are you making starters? A highly yeasty flavor could indicate that you're
    underpitching.Nope, no starters - I simply smack the yeast pack, let it sit for a few hours
    while I'm cooking the wort, a...

    Now, if you want bottled beer, use a counter-pressure filler, or a blichman beer gun to put the
    cold, clear, carbed beer in bottles and cap them.Cromwell, please remember... Elementary

    Okay, first a little story. My bride and I traveled to St Augustine, FL, for a little get-away
    and had lunch at the A1A Ale Works. I enjoyed a Bridge of Lions Brown Ale, and my wife had the
    Red Brick ...

    Ghall, you mentioned straining my brew. I've read about this in the past, and honestly never
    got the sense that a majority of people thought it was a good idea. What would I strain it
    with, and when? ...

    Aaaaaugh!I just checked on the fermentation of my latest batch, a clone of Iron Rat Stout, and
    when I opened the door to my cooler I was shocked to find that the lid to my fermenter (plastic
    bucket) h...

    Awesome information, folks - thanks so much. I visited the Wyeast Labs website and found that
    my 1056 should be 60-72 (a pretty wide range, it seems), but it also says that "mild citrus
    notes develop ...

    I'm about to brew a Magic Hat #9 clone, and the recipe I have says to add 3 oz of Apricot

    flavoring - just tos...
