Posted in thread: Adding amylase to carbed keg on 04-03-2014 at 01:38 AM
The problem you might face is that the amylase needs active yeast in order to actually drop the
gravity. If this beer has been in the keg for a few months then you prob won't have enough
yeast in susp...

I've enjoyed a lot of their beers over the years, but am I the only one who thinks they keep

Posted in thread: Adding fermentables to trigger a D-rest for lager after primary, will it work? on 01-07-2014 at 03:03 PM
Krausening is just adding fresh wort to lagered beer with a dose of fresh yeast, correct? If
so, that's SORTA what I'm talking about. I wouldn't add any yeast, since the yeast that just
got done eatin...
