    Also to add to my other post if you go to New Holland and you like Bourbon def buy their beer
    aged bourbon. Its aged in the Dragons Milk barrels and is a really smooth flavourful easy
    drinking bourbon...

    New Holland is a great and underrated brewery. They also do distilling. Their BA RIS "Dragon's
    Milk" kicks ass and it's easy to get in most of the Grand Rapids area.

    A very important thing to consider is storage, handling, and bottling procedures. This can be a
    cause for a great variability between bottles of the same batch, thus contributing to
    fluctuating scores...

    If the yeast have already flocculated then you are pretty much stuck. I'm not so sure that they
    will clean up with a temperature rise if they have gone to sleep, even if you rouse them. Give
    it a tast...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast over attenuation ??? on 04-18-2014 at 03:01 AM
    I regularly get in the 80-85% attenuation range with the White Labs equivalent of that strain
    (wlp001). This holds true mainly to grists that don't consist of a lot of specialty grains
    (like yours abo...

    I have an American wheat on tap right now with the same schedule, 7 days in primary and 3 on

    I'm planning on cold crashing. So does that mean I don't have to wait as long to let it
    clear?I'd let the yeast mostly clear on their own before cold crashing. That way you know that
    they are done cle...

  • Posted in thread: Just starting to appreciate saisons. on 04-15-2014 at 01:22 PM
    I liked the spiced Red Sky at Night Saison. I like how the spices made that barnyard
    flavor/aroma seem a bit earthy instead. I'm thinking spicy German hops would do about the same.
    But 4 vco2 seems a ...

    This strain and 007 are freakishly fast. 2 days seems a bit extreme but I'm not too surprised,
    especially since your ambient temp was 68F. I'd be on the lookout for diacetyl. 002 without
    controlled te...

    4-6 days to FG for me for ales unless it's a huge beer. Heck, some of my beers are already
    kegged by day 7.
