Unless you leave it for months causing autolysis, yeast ABSORB some flavor compounds, not
contribute them...Semantics. You're both talking about a change in the end product based off
how the beer was ...

The part that is "Brewing Art" is the science we haven't figured out yet.If you look at just
brewing, apart from the drinking and experiencing of the resultant beer, I might be willing to

Happens to the best of is from time to time. Relax, etc.
Posted in thread: Bitter and very dry Wit. What do you think on 05-23-2013 at 04:02 AM
I could be wrong, but I think Munton's DME is 75% fermentable. Double check that. Same goes for
the wheat extract. If that's all the case, you're going to need simple sugars to get to 90%.

Why not add the oats to the mash after the protein rest if you're worried?

I'm aware of at least 8-9 different commercial saison yeasts packaged for homebrewers..
Beergolf probably is, too. Do you remember which one you used?

It'll probably end up tasting something like a lighter porter or stout, but that's OK. Should
be a good beer, in any case, just not like a typical 80 shilling.Come to think of it, even a
1/2 lb of RB ...
