  • Posted in thread: Kolsch fermentation question on 04-17-2012 at 01:49 PM
    I've used the Wyeast 2565 strain twice so far. Both times I've made a starter and found it is
    even difficult to decant the starter because the yeast doesn't flocculate well. It's a slow
    yeast if you f...

    I think you are quite right, AJ. The next time I do a Kolsch, I would add more bittering hops--
    1oz at 3.5AA is not very much. Also, since this was the first time doing water treatment, I was
    scared t...

    I just did a Kolsch. I started with RO water.Ca 50Mg 0Na 0Cl 68SO4 29To get this (approximate)
    I used 1.5g of Gypsum and 4g of Calcium Chloride. I also used 4oz of weyermann acidulated malt

    I've noticed since adding o2 that the lag time is a bit longer than I was used too. Nothing to
    worry aboutI believe that is normal. The yeast will use oxygen to build their cell walls and
    replicate wh...

  • Posted in thread: Going crazy with this medicinal taste on 02-09-2012 at 04:14 PM
    Before I had my fermentation chamber readied, I did a few batches that fermented a bit too
    warm. They had a medicinal taste which I would describe as "band-aid". I did another batch of
    the same recipe...

    AJ, do you ever add sulfate to the styles you referred to, or just calcium and chloride?

    Been reading this forum for a bit and I see a lot of talk about treating water. That's great
    and everyone seems to be helpful here. But, does anyone have a good success story related to
    brewing water?...

    If you skip the late addition hops and dry hop instead with them for a week you'll get much
    more flavor and aroma from the hops. Of course, this won't add much to the bitterness but it
    will add some. ...

    Share with me what a big pitch meansPitch lots of yeast. Multilpe vials/activator packs or make
    a large starter.
