    Absolutely correct.Spring runoff (we are 2 hrs N of Toronto, ave snowfall about 10')
    contributes a lot to the color, and during Summer the water heats up disturbing leaf and
    vegetable matter on the bo...

    Thanks for the feedback.Helibrewer, My current system is a coarse and fine sediment filter then
    UV sterilizer. Filtration is down to 5 microns. Don't want the expense and upkeep of a RO
    system, beside...

    Hi,I have a question regarding tannins in brew water.To be completely clear, I am not referring
    to tannin extraction from sparge water that is too warm or over sparged mashes.My water is from
    a river ...

  • Posted in thread: Using 500g yeast blocks on 10-05-2012 at 03:17 AM
    Many good points made. I do wash yeast and also pitch on the cake. Both work well.I'm out of
    the country twice a year for 2 months at a time so this breaks my brewing rhythm, so to
    speak!Don't like us...

    As to the attraction, I have no homebrew suppliers anywhere near where I liveand having plenty
    of yeast on hand is always a good thing. It works out about half the cost.So, has anyone any
    experience o...

    I'm interested in comments regarding the use of the 500g S05 and S04 yeast blocks by
    homebrewers. I was told by a supplier to stick to the 11,5g packs because once opened the large
    blocks are negative...

    Glad someone posted this question. I have brewed about 50 batches with perhaps 2 that were
    infected very early in my "career". Otherwise quite good.I decided to try Gelatin and used it
    the way it is s...

    Good idea about putting them in the fridge as soon as they are carbonated....I don't currently
    do that. I can see that the yeast could munch on the aroma compounds after finishing the
    priming sugar.I'...

    I bottled, then allowed to carb for about 10 days. Aroma was great for about another 14 days,
    so aroma started to disappear about 24 days after bottling.I have a new batch fermenting. I'll
    leave a cou...

    Primed about 3.5oz. The point is the aroma was amazing but only for about 10 days, then
    declined rapidly
