  • Posted in thread: Banana beer.. biggest cause? on 07-28-2015 at 09:26 PM
    Too-warm temperatures sounds like the most likely cause – even 69 is on the warm side
    for most of the standard clean ale yeasts.Luckily, it's also not too hard to fix in future
    batches – ...

    Duncan, how often do you water, and, how often do the bines get rained on?If you're in a wet
    area, or watering every couple days (or more), you might be over-watering; this is something
    I'd been doing...

    Heck, he should welcomed as their mascot; the Honeybourne Railway Club doesn't sound like
    nearly as fun a spot to hoist a pint as the Sozzled Squirrel.

  • Posted in thread: Counterflow chiller question on 07-21-2015 at 04:23 PM
    Depends on how cold your groundwater is, that's the ultimate limit. Maybe your chiller is
    long/efficient enough that it gets wort all the way down to groundwater temp, in which case,
    you'll have done ...

  • Posted in thread: topping off with wort instead off water? on 07-21-2015 at 12:07 AM
    You should know your approximate boil-off rate – if it were my beer, I'd figure out how
    much longer it would take to boil off that extra 1.5 gallons of water and throw the whole kit
    and kaboodle...

  • Posted in thread: IPAs having alot of sludge into fermenter? on 07-16-2015 at 07:38 PM
    A couple things I do for my IPA's that seem to work well:[*]Let them sit at least 30 minutes,
    possibly at a slight angle, before racking, to give the gunk a chance to settle down (this
    works both brew...

    One thing you could do is ferment on the warm side. My first beer, before I knew that
    temperature control was a thing, was a US-05 pale ale that free-floated its way on up into the
    low to mid 70's dur...

  • Posted in thread: Hmmm, a centrifuge!!! on 07-09-2015 at 11:03 PM
    Cedar, you must know the gravity and volume of the wort and the weight of grain that went into
    each brew – that should allow you to calculate your lautering efficiency. I'd be
    surprised if it's ...

    Pretty sure the Belgian masters just throw 'em in whole. Heck, Cascade brews a sour with just
    the stones!...sorry, I don't have any first-hand advice, only started my sour program earlier
    this year, I...

    So... you're looking to ferment in a metal box with a loose-fitting lid? I'd just use my boil
    kettle – you use that thing, you're gonna brew some square beer, you'll never get it into
    round kegs...
