That is very interesting!!! Although my normal process is not "no HSA" it is certainly closer
to his no HSA test process than his over the top HSA test process. Tells me I don't have to
kill myself tr...

I did not do a proper head to head comparison. I killed the US-05 keg early and then we had a
party and the crew killed the Nottingham keg. Still have not tapped the Windsor.I tried the

I noticed the following thread: have a link in the beginning that eventually ends up with a
PDF article on low oxygen brewing for Bavarian Helles styles. Perhaps an over the top position

The keg with Cooper's should have hit its stride by now and I don't think I care for it.

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...
