Posted in thread: Yeast for GF Pale Ale on 08-22-2016 at 10:56 AM
Recently, I did some mash experiments with the same grain bill, and for fun I pitched four
different yeasts (all grain pale ale):- Safale US-05- Nottingham- Windsor- Cooper'sI have been
using US-05 al...

Legume, I have been focused on improving efficiency and my AG batches have been finishing
really low lately depending on the yeast, 1.006 to 1.008. Do you think if I cut back on the
enzyme load that I...

The natural enzymes are not as strong as the ones in barley and the gelatinization temperature
is higher than barley. Bringing the mash to gelatinization temp denatures the natural enzymes

Thanks guys! I have to confess, the results of the "xbeeriment" were a little unexpected. Nice
that it seems I don't have to add any complications to the mash process to make an improvement!

DRV,The enzyme I use is Diatase from E.C. Kraus. It is effective and easy to get. I have
intended to experiment with others but have not gotten around to it. The Diatase seems to work
much better than...

The first rest was at 1.3 quarts/lb grist ratio and the second was 1.5. The total sparge water
used was just over 1.1. Because the sparge is go generous, I do have to boil longer to bring
the volume d...

Gravity points on the vertical axis and second rest time on the horizontal.

I did a mash experiment at the end of June inspired by various discussions on the forum. Sort
of hijacked the thread so I am starting a new one. The previous post was post #14 of the
following: test ...

Hey Chris, I am going to boil the 1/3 I am decocting and then return it back to the mash.
Depending on how much this raises the temperature may lead me to do a double decoction. I am
going to add enou...

Sounds like a fun experiment! So you will pull off a third of the mash for the high temperature
run. It will be relatively stiff so you are probably planning to add some water to thin it up
