I've use it on my hefeweizens and my dunkelweizens. Haven't had a problem yet and both are fan
favorites. I almost need to keep a hefe on tap at all times, which is a shame because hefes
aren't my fav...
Posted in thread: Yeasty smell of kegged batch on 10-14-2010 at 06:20 PM
I have the same problem sometimes with safale and wyeast 1007. After enough pulls it goes away.
Often the odor is just in the first pull of a session. Maybe it just takes awhile for all the
yeast to f...

I wanted to make sure I got some good caramely goodness and the chocolate gave me just the

distilled. Am I...

Depending on where you are staying, you can hop on the Metra electric line and take that
directly (literally) to Flossmoor Station Brewery and Restaurant. Although the restaurant is
nice, it is first ...

I just got what I thought was a really good deal on a chest freezer. I plugged it in, turned
the dial to 4(like the instructions said), placed a thermometer inside, and waited. The temp
inside does no...

I never undertood the % for boil off. Near as I can tell, surface area at a given temp is most

amount per h...

Posted in thread: Munich on 08-25-2010 at 01:10 PM
If it were me and I were buying a bulk sack of Munich, I'd get the darker Munich and cut it
down with Vienna and/or Pilsner if I need to lighten a recipe.Sounds like a fine idea. Once
