Not a benchmark, but almost always more reliable than one homebrewer's opinion of his/her own
beer. If a beer scores well (or poorly) in aggregate over 2-3 competitions by certified judges,
that is wi...

How did it score in BJCP judged competitions?Also, Wyeast says otherwise: a BJCP competition
isn't a benchmark of quality nor does it establish anything except that two people agreed to a

How long did you let it condition for afterwards? Any hot alcohol flavors? I'd love to try it
but I'm a little gun shy after wyeast said that a 90* ferment would produce fusels with 3724.I

I have pitched this yeast at 90F and fermented at 100F. It was outstanding. So anyone who is

Well, the 50B cells per packet would certainly explain all the under attenuation I've dealt

and a half a...

Im new to kegging and have only used the "set and forget" approach. I kegged a cider 10 days
ago at 12 psi and it just isnt carbonated. I confirmed that its under pressure and pours from

Posted in thread: Mangrove Jack Cider Kit - Sulphur on 06-25-2014 at 03:55 AM
Had some of the perry kit. It was maybe 14 days out from the brew day, if you call it that.
