    I'm using US-05. Let's hope that peach character doesn't come too strong.

    Thank you guys, I feel a little better. I aim for a fairly clean pale ale though : could this
    stress the yeast enough to cause unacceptable levels of esters ? Will all this shaking cause
    some oxidatio...

    Title says it all. I started my freezer-converted fermentation chamber without noticing its
    probe was hanging outside of it yesterday afternoon. I came back late in the evening to realize
    the thing ke...

    Someone in PM pointed the green catterpillars could be hop/cabbage loopers, which looks a lot
    like what I occasionally have under the leaves. It seems no more than a few of these can do
    quite damage.T...

    Hey guys,I know this has been asked numerous times, but I just can't find a satisfying answer
    no matter how I search. My 2th year hops have been taking a lot of abuse lately and I just
    don't know what...

    I force carbonate at about 15 psi.I have a cream ale on tap which has been in keg for three
    weeks now, on the line my irish red was. It is light, crisp, clean and tasty. No off flavor as
    far as I know...

    It takes about two weeks for beer line issues to become noticeable.Duh ! Didn't read that part.
    Though I don't understand why it takes so long to become noticeable...

    This sounds like the problem. Beer lines need to get acid cleaning. Oxyclean won't get rid of
    beer stone where the bugs like to hide. It takes about two weeks for beer line issues to become
    noticeable...

    Thank you for your help.The other beers that you refer to that have started to turn in 2 to 3
    weeks sound like they are oxidized. Oxidation does not become apparent for some time, though I
    think 2 wee...

    pdietert : You got me thinking... I did "keg condition" once an amber ale last year and, as I
    remember it, it didn't have the flaw I am finding in my other brown/red type beers ever
    since... I might j...
