Posted in thread: Did Anybody do a lager vs ale (neutral ale yeast) comparaison with the same recipe? on 02-13-2016 at 11:40 AM
The difference between 833 and 2124 was the malt character. Both were very good brews, the 2124

Aso don't overlook the mash out. If you are batch sparging and are keeping the pH in the 5.2

I would try to add more 2 row and less DME just to help with the lautering. I've also found
that a 10-20 min ~122* protein rest lets me use less rice hulls for a good run off. I like the
hops combo an...
Posted in thread: Anybody else like brewing beer better than drinking it? on 02-07-2016 at 12:40 PM

invite people over...

Posted in thread: Krausen still holding strong, too early to dry hop? on 01-26-2016 at 09:50 PM
All those Chico yeasts hang around for a while, I do a 3 week then dry hop rite in primary for

anyone else had ...

Before I built my basement brewery with induction burners, I brewed outside. When the hoses are
off I just let it cool overnite outside (no chill) if left in the kettle what could happen? In
fact I di...
