    Denny,At what point do you raise the temperature?50% complete?65%?(Do you do a fast ferment
    test to know what to expect as a final gravity?)No FFT. I've got enough experience and brew
    tested recipes a...

    Seems commonly accepted that higher temps create more diacetyl, but OTOH it also helps the
    yeast reduce it more quickly. Some examples: 1) White Labs. link "Fermentation parameters that
    effect diacety...

    I don't know about higher temps causing diacetyl but I wonder if higher temps in the Ale range
    could cause Ale flavors if you do a D rest while fermentation is still pretty active at say
    50-75% comple...

    I recently listened to a couple pro brewers on a couple AHA conference seminars about brewing
    lagers and they recommended D rests but only raising the temp a few degrees toward the end of
    fermentation...

    I have the same concerns. How reliable is the WiFi? Does it only need to initially download the
    recipe, or does it need the connection throughout the brew session?Yes, wifi is required. If
    you lose th...

    If you're just going to press a button and watch a machine brew, why wouldn't you just go to
    the store and buy some beer?It that's all it was, I'd do that. But there's more to it. It's not
    much differ...

    Denny, how did the blind triangle test come out on the Rye IPA?Identical...couldn't tell any
    difference.

    I've been using a Zymatic for several months now and I absolutely love it! You can read my

    Was considering brewing a cannabis beer. Putting an ounce of shake into the boil at 60minutes.
    Has anyone got experience with this. All stories welcome. This could be a fun thread.It's a
    waste and mak...

  • Posted in thread: The great fermentation debate!! Lol on 06-24-2015 at 07:02 PM
    It's simply a matter of preference. We are under no compunction to do what commercial brewers
    do. I use a fermentation schedule that works for me based on my own experience. That's why it's
    called HOM...
