  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 08-25-2015 at 09:41 PM
    Haven't brewed in over a month due to travelling for various family engagements, then studying
    for the GMAT, then taking the GMAT. I finally bottled a wheat saison last night that'd been
    sitting for a...

    I have definitely left mid boil, both while using an electric stove and a has burner. Normally
    to go get ice or food.

  • Posted in thread: What I did for beer today on 07-26-2015 at 11:01 PM
    Just kegged my mandarina helles, dropping the temperature on it now and dry hopped it. Took a
    sample of my wheat saison, still has a ways to go.

    Understood, and that's why I referred to it only as "risky," not "doomed to fail with 100%
    certainty." Clearly my d-rest wasn't long enough. Usually a 3-4 days at 64f is enough, but not
    this time (lik...

    Ok, I just tried this idea of ramping up to the d-rest at 50% attenuation, and got the entirely
    predictable result of high diacetyl. As we all know, diacetyl is increased at higher
    fermentation temps....

  • Posted in thread: experimenting with Brett in a Saison on 07-15-2015 at 08:00 PM
    Personally I have not had a problem with it. I have bottled about 4 batches (off the top of my
    head) that finished around 1.004-1.006 with brett with no issues. They were each primed for
    about 2.5 vol...

    Already have an American hopped export crashing and another helles on primary with this method.
    It's great because I really can churn out a lager in a few weeks.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned it, but brett flavors supposedly develop under pressure better.
    I've had a saison finish at around 1.006 and then bottled with brett (using bombers and carbing
    to about 2....

    My understanding with first wort hopping was that the bitterness would be similar to a 15
    minute addition. Somehow the acids get isomerized in the 160 degree wort already and don't get
    affected by the...

  • Posted in thread: What's in your fermenter(s)? on 07-13-2015 at 12:28 AM
    Some kinda Munich Helles hybrid... Got the ingredients right but whiffed on the yeast! Used a
    hefeweizen style instead of a lager style. Maybe it's gonna be awesome...Oof, that sounds like
    it's going ...
