Posted in thread: Need some expert input on hop aroma on 10-08-2016 at 02:45 AM
I did an all mosaic IPA in the summer that is fantastic, a good floral citrus flavor with a
touch of earthiness if you ask me. Maybe you had stale hops?

154. May have another point or two in there, but I'm not too worried about it. It's a fair
amount of Munich and German Pils, so I wouldn't expect it to be super dry.

Started at 1.054, looks like it just finished today (P+4) at 1.014ish which is 73% apparent

Yeah it's a quick yeast. I'm using it for an Oktoberfest currently and it had kicked off after
4 hours and is currently 2 days in and nearly 50% done at 53 degrees.

What do you think is the highest temp for lagering? I mean, if it's 40, is that too high?40 is
fine. Definitely not too high. Fridge temps are no problem. You could even go higher if you
want. I don't...
Posted in thread: Stirring Dried Yeast for 30 minutes After Rehydrating on 10-03-2016 at 05:29 AM
I always took their wording as a poor translation to English. I just stirred after a total of
30 minutes to make sure all of the yeast is in suspension for pitching. Same as the
instructions when pitc...

Kinda depends on if you bottle or keg. If kegging just rack to keg and lager. Really you should
be able to lager on the yeast cake for a few weeks. I would minimize as much racking as
possible to less...

1 week turnaround? That just seems insane and goes against everything we are told, no? I am
very excited at the prospect of a 1 week beer.Nothing crazy about it! The beer may not be
drinkable after 1 ...
Posted in thread: Looks like infection. Can anyone help on 08-12-2016 at 03:13 PM
I get a film like that sometimes from dry hopping and as I transfer it sticks to the side walls
of the bucket and looks yellowish/greenish (so I would guess it's suspended hop particulate).
Plus if ev...
Posted in thread: "It's Dead, Jim." Is it? 48 hours in, nothing (Wyeast 1028) on 08-12-2016 at 03:06 PM
So this sounds like I could just connect those two wires, bypassing the thermostat and creating
a refrigerator which will run continuously. Then, the Inkbird controller I have should control
off and o...
