For what it's worth, chemically halting fermentation using the above methods is a technique the
mad fermentationist recommends in his book on American Sours.

Oops. Where I wrote sulfites I meant sorbate. Does sorbate need to dissipate into the air (like
campden tabs) or can I seal the keg immediately after adding it?

This is actually for a 100% Brett beer, the final stages of fermentation of which I want to
halt. Will my campden tablets and sulfites both dissolve readily if I just crush them and dump
them into my ...

251696Finally was able to further disassemble my manifold. Looks like the gas leak has to be
due to old o-rings not creating a seal. You can see on the pic that there are two black rings
for each valv...

I don't know much about the structure of a gas manifold, but I've found mine has a slow leak at
two of the three shut-off valves. Specifically, the leak is coming from the nut that attaches
the lever ...

Well I cold crashed this before getting the most recent posts here. The krausen dropped and the
beer is looking quite clear except for a few white spots here and there floating on top.
Gravity is read...

That said, I don't suppose there'd be any problem with cold crashing, just to see how/if it
clears up, to take a gravity reading with ease, and to taste a sample. I can always let it warm

Thanks for the input so far! More info:I pitched Brett (an unknown combination of strains) on
January 1st. By the 2nd we had steady airlock activity. We had vigorous fermentation for a
couple days aft...

My first 100% brett beer just finished primary after about a week. Now it's doing its job
SLOWLY chewing through the sugar of the pound of crystal 120 I had in the grain bill.Thing is,
I'd prefer not ...
Posted in thread: Does Melanoidin Malt add fermentable sugar? on 01-03-2015 at 11:30 PM
I'd think this would be an easy question to answer, but 30 minutes of google and forum searches
have given me nothing. Obviously Melanoidin gives you extreme malty flavors, it's like munich
