Posted in thread: Stone to layoff employees on 10-18-2016 at 01:45 PM
Sad, but inevitable and I expect we will see more of this along with increased pace of buyouts
by the big conglomerates.Stone was cutting edge 10 years ago, but the trend toward "hyper
local" and the ...
Posted in thread: Pros/cons of aerating with pure oxygen on 09-14-2016 at 04:21 PM
No matter your method, you will NEVER exceed 8ppm O2 by using air. This is fine for standard
and low gravity ales.For lagers and high gravity ales, 10-14ppm O2 is required for the best
results in term...

Just like cystal 60 or jolly ranchers the yeast is an ingredient imo. Which one you choose
matters.But I thought you said 2-row and pinch of hops will taste like 2-row and pinch of hops,

All of that is absolutely significant lol. You fermented at lager temp, brought it up for a
diacetyl rest then started lagering. That's a bit different than what the OP has been doing
riding the whole...

I'm leaning this way as well. I take Marshall's work to mean "don't freak if you're a bit off
with temps, etc." And none of the Brulosophy crew take their findings as reason to abandon the

Since this thread is such a disaster it would be great if you didn't post again.Likewise

Despite the best efforts of some, this thread is a disaster.The OP can barely express a
coherent thought, and is convinced that anecdotal findings of a tiny sample size are somehow
more valid that dec...
Posted in thread: First lager - didnt make a starter - now what? on 08-29-2016 at 09:15 PM
That's a pretty bold general statement. A lot of conventional wisdom has been and continues to
be debunked. I think most agree the method he used was not ideal, but stating that there is a

I made a steam lager this weekend. I pitched yeast on 8/14/2016 around 7pm at around 75
degrees. Over night it got down to around 55 degrees and I'm really not seeing any bubbles. 1

Posted in thread: "Northeast" style IPA on 08-15-2016 at 12:41 PM
I don't think you need lots of yeast in suspension to make these beers and make them well. To
be honest, the "yeastier" the beers are, the less I tend to like them. Some of the commercial
examples I s...
