    But diacetyl is not buttery in smaller amounts- did they specifically say "buttery"? An oily or
    slickness on the teeth or tongue is also diacetyl, just in a smaller amount that a butter bomb
    has.Both ...

    If both a recognized judge AND a national judge claim to have tasted diacetyl, then you've got
    diacetyl. A 24.5 score isn't terrible by the way- it's actually considered "Good". If you look
    at the bot...

    The IPA was judged by two judges, one National and one Recognized. They both indicated
    diacetyl. I'd rather have a beer I find delicious than one that pleases strangers (certified or
    not), but it is i...

    I only mentioned oxidation because something I came across mentioned introducing too much
    oxygen in transfer as a possible diacetyl cause.I aerated with O2 and didn't have any lag time
    issue. I haven'...

    I just received the results from my first competition - a recently brewed IPA (14B) I (and
    every civilian who tasted it) absolutely loved and a porter (12B) I brewed a year ago and
    happened to have so...

    Not having the CaraAroma isn't anything to worry about - I think you really only need it if you
    make an extract version. If you make All-Grain it comes out better if you cut way back on the
    CaraAroma ...

    I've been researching pilsner recipes (I should soon have a basement fridge I can devote to
    lagering) and noticed most of them involved decoction. After a great deal of
    researching/googling decoction,...

    I'm going to brew this recipe this weekend and have one question - am I reading the 90 minute
    boil/first hops at 60 minutes right? What is the purpose of boiling for 30 minutes before the
    first hop ad...

  • Posted in thread: brew in a bag question- Sparging? on 01-04-2012 at 09:30 PM
    I got good results using BIAB with a single dunk sparge. I only moved to a more conventional AG
    system due to the bag limitations (couldn't find a big enough bag to do bigger beers) and
    realizing how ...
