    Very nice simple set-up! I was all proud of my minimal BIAB set-up (small New York city apt),
    but you have me beat - I have a stove and everything (Luxury!). Seriously, I think this is a
    great thread,...

    I use it as a base malt for all my British beer styles - British bitters, stouts, etc. For
    German style ales and American pales I use Pilsner malt - personally, I think the biscuity-ness
    of Maris Otte...

    When posters on here go off on a tangent about how they do a certain thing that is completely
    irrelevant to the original poster's question. Everyone has their own setup, their own
    methods...but when y...

    OK, I'm posting this just because I think its funny - obviously this is a small batch (4 gallon

    I though your question was interesting, so I went digging around in the literature, and I found
    a nice review (Flavor-active esters: Adding fruitiness to beer, J Biosci Bioeng.

    Dude, the entirety of any lab safety training course can be boiled down to: don't eat the
    chemicals. Yet they are routinely at least an hour...

    Oh, it was cottage cheese - cottage cheese swirling around the fermentor because of the
    vigorous ferment, hence the lava (LAVA, not lave, I can't type at all..) lamp comment. I was so
    sure I had conta...

    LD50 is 2mg/kg for a rat. Assuming scale-up (not a great assumption, mind you), and a 70 kg
    human, that's what, 140 mg? I wouldn't want someone noodling around with that at home. And I
    don't know abou...

    There are commercial medias for propagation of fermentation yeast. UBA with cyclohexamide being
    one choice. Am. J. Enol. Vitic. 38:4:273-276 (1987) While the article is obviously aimed at the
    wine ind...
