  • Posted in thread: Shake the carbination into the Keg - Does it affect Flavor? on 09-28-2009 at 04:36 PM
    The only reason I ask is because I want to try some of the beer in a day or two after kegging,
    just to see where it stands. I will allow it it age and carb under the proper psi (per the
    chart) after.....

  • Posted in thread: Shake the carbination into the Keg - Does it affect Flavor? on 09-28-2009 at 01:38 PM
    I have read that, after kegging, I can jack up the pressure in my keg and simply shake the hell
    out of it to get it carbonated immediately. Obviously, I would purge all the oxygen out. Im
    sure this wo...

  • Posted in thread: Can I Mix and Match US 2 Row and Maris Otter? on 08-27-2009 at 12:12 PM
    Thank you for the correction on that. I had a feeling that what I read may have been a little
    BS, and more of an opinion. I just want to verify that I can 1) mix these two without any weird
    tastes, an...

  • Posted in thread: Vojvodina Hops - How to use it??? on 08-27-2009 at 12:10 PM
    Ya, Im still sitting on 4 oz, and Im afraid to use it because I dont know where they would be
    good. Supposedly they are supposed to be good for a high AA noble aroma. Im scared to do that
    no knowing e...

    I have a recipe that calls for about 8 lbs of 2-row. It is a scaled down version of the
    Thunderstruck Pumpkin Ale posted by Yuri have about 5 lbs of US 2 row, and about 6 of Maris
    Otter. Can I just ...

  • Posted in thread: Why does my brew taste horrible? on 08-22-2009 at 11:10 AM
    I use iodaphor, and Im pretty sure I am mixing it right. I am using Pittsburgh water. Same as I
    always have. There have been no changes that I know of.It started fermenting at about 71
    degrees, but go...

  • Posted in thread: Why does my brew taste horrible? on 08-22-2009 at 12:46 AM
    I have brewed about 18 AG batches. I have had 1 batch that was undrinkable, my 15th... WTF?I
    can only describe it as a chemical-ish, bitter, "baking soda" taste. I dont really have any
    better of a way...

  • Posted in thread: Is greater than 100% efficiency possible? on 07-30-2009 at 01:18 PM
    Kaiser, I am considering my volume after it has cooled. Thanks for checking those numbers for
    me. One thing that I have noticed, I definitely dont get as high of efficiency if I only bre a
    5 gallon ba...

  • Posted in thread: Is greater than 100% efficiency possible? on 07-29-2009 at 08:36 PM
    Beersmith states "actual efficiency" at 90.66, and "Efficiency into Boiler" at 95.93. I assumed
    I wasnt getting any tannins if the runnings dont fall below 1.008. I use an evaporation rate of
    9% per h...

    Im sorry, that was a poorly written comment.I infuse to sac temp with 25.2 QUARTS. Then I fly
    sparge till I collected 12.2 gallons. So, i cant really get 96%, can I?
