Posted in thread: Fermentation with WLP 002.... Did I make it stop??? on 11-13-2013 at 04:35 PM
I use this yeast in most beers. I've found that big temp drops will quickly cause the yeast to
flocculate and settle. But small changes due to ambient shift aren't a big deal. It is
recommended that y...

Hey do what you want and just know that when you post a recipe for feedback on HBT you'll get a
bunch of differing opinions and who's to say who's right? That includes what I'm telling you as
well. I ...

Might as well dump the C40 since you'll get some extra color and flavor from vienna.You also
said "dextrine" which I'm taking to mean a dextrine malt like carapils. Also probably not
necessary - the b...
Posted in thread: Chinook hop pungency on 10-29-2013 at 01:32 PM
I have a question about the pungency of Chinook. I've used Chinook as a flavor/aroma hop a few

much" it cont...
Posted in thread: How often to stir mash? on 10-28-2013 at 02:05 PM
On a homebrewscale I agree that stirring the mash probably isn't necessary, though I do run the
pump a couple times during my mash to keep the bed flowing. I never have a stuck mash, and I've

I recommend pitching at 62, fermenting at 63-65, and then kicking up the temp to 68-72 as
fermentation wraps up. This is my fermentation schedule for every beer using this yeast, but
especially for hi...

I've had and made a few beers with this interesting minty/licorice aroma. It's pretty pungent,
maybe slightly dank but not too heavy in the garlic area. Very herbal and almost like a caper
or a perman...

If you're fly sparging, 1 pint per minute should be your target runoff rate. You can maybe
speed it up in the last third but I'd rather take a little longer for better extract.
Posted in thread: Vanilla Coffee Porter on 05-28-2013 at 06:54 PM
Yeah, this was from my early days of brewing when I put too many malts in a beer and my
fermentation techniques were a little lacking. I'm sure you could fix both those issues and
make a fine beer, bu...
