    34/70 is the same as wyeast2124. With how they measure attenuation, it is listed as 73-77. It
    is possible it attenuated more, but with the levels of gushing, it may be more likely to be an
    infection p...

    You can definitely skip the mash out decoction with no effect on the final beer. I usually use
    an infusion to reach mash out temp. With the malts you are using, id move the protein rest up
    to 131. Tha...

    midnight wheat is basically a domestic carafa 3, there isnt much taste difference. So, yeah,
    that will make a lower hopped/gravity CDA. Centennial is pretty much the generic NW hop, no one
    is going to...

    Its confusing. Hallertau is a famous hop growing region of germany. When hops are from there,
    they are labeled Hallertau _variety name_. Most of the hops grown there are old landrace hops,
    or related ...

    Really oily. The description of mint/eucalyptus candy/toothpaste is not far off. I liked them
    mixed in small amounts with other hops if used as a late addition. They are very strong. As a
    bittering ho...

    Id sub caraaroma for the c-190. This is not a super hoppy beer, with a fair amount of roast.
    Frankly the hop ratios wont matter much. He does list 3 hops though.... "Challenger" "EKG" and
    "Hallertau H...

    Not airtight (the starter is producing co2.) Loose, but not so loose it will blow off in a
    faint breeze. And dust cant fall in.

    Are you doing any water chem? If you have soft water the first mash would have been way too low
    ph, and the 2nd mash too high. Usually thats not going to lead to completely undrinkable, but
    its there.

  • Posted in thread: Alcoholic taste to the beer on 07-25-2015 at 02:38 AM
    Well too things can cause an alcoholic taste to the beer; a young high alcohol beer, or a beer
    that is full of higher fusel alcohols. If your beer is over 6% abv, it may just need to sit for
    a while t...

  • Posted in thread: Smoked baltic-ish porter recipe critique on 07-24-2015 at 08:28 PM
    As a Porter it looks fine. Brown malt is great in a porter, and 4# of rauchmalt (i assume thats
    what you mean by smoked malt) will give a noticeable/medium smokiness depending on how fresh
    the malt yo...
