    ABOUT ME

  • Charlottesville, VA
  • Owner, Great Harvest Bread Co
  • The blues.
  • I started brewing in October 2008. I believe that making wort is easy, and you can pretty much throw anything you want into the brew kettle, so long as you pay supreme attention and respect to your beer on the microbiological level.

    Proper pitching rates, fermentation temperature control, and of course, cleaning and sanitation. If you can do these three things, you will ALWAYS make drinkable beer, and more often than not you'll make commercial quality beer.
  • I'm experimenting with hop varieties I haven't used before, and learning all the ins and outs of Wyeast 1968. I love this yeast.

    You'll probably be fine with that temp ramp - I'm 90% concerned with the lag phase and start of
    fermentation.Love the pear and ginger aromas you get from this yeast. Drinking some of my
    Golden Strong ...

    I recently made a Belgian Blonde and a Golden Strong with this yeast, pitched both at 62 and
    raised 1-2 degrees per day up to about 82. Attenuation was impressive, esters were great, and I
    like that t...

    Hello All, So I have this bottled up conditioning in a closet right now. 2 weeks in the
    fermentor and Christmas Eve will be 3 weeks in the bottle. I was wondering if anyone has any
    experience with thi...

    I highly encourage giving a try to what I mentioned above - chill your batch to pitch temp, add
    yeast, ferment in the chamber on the low end of temp range for the first three days, and then
    as ferment...

    Sure, it just depends on how meticulous you want to be. Realistically, so long as you can get
    through the first few days of fermentation you're good. After that you could just take the ale
    out of the ...

    In the pitch rate article, check out Figure 1 showing time vs apparent extract. The units
    aren't super clear, but it does appear that the higher the pitch rate, the lower the
    attenuation.I know it's n...

    I bet you could do it if you wrapped the ale in some insulation, which could be as simple as a
    few towels.

    Yes, overpitching can definitely increase attenuation. Check out these two articles with some

  • Posted in thread: Adjusting for FG by decreasing efficiency? on 12-08-2014 at 09:21 PM
    Well the downside is the amount of time, which to me is my most expensive brewing
    ingredient!Give a short mash a try sometime and I think you'll find you get the same results.
    The enzymes are denaturi...

  • Posted in thread: Expanding and futureproofing on 12-08-2014 at 08:56 PM
    My impression is that turning a cooler into a mashtun with a braid is probably the cheapest way
    to go.I have several pro-brewer friends, and I own a small business myself (non-brewing
    related), so tak...
