    Does that finger floating in the mash add to the flavor? Kinda like a bay leaf in the stock pot
    eh?Hahahaha, yup! But really that's just my floating thermometer. I was having erratic readings
    from my ...

    I'm going to brew this on Friday. I'm making two substitutions: going with EKG, but staying at
    the same IBU's, and using WLP028. But otherwise, I'm going per recipe. This will be my first
    decoction ma...

    SG was 1.017 yesterday. I'm ramping up for the D Rest. This is going to be a great beer. I'm
    already planning on making the next batch, because most of this is going to be given

    Jamie, I'm new to lagers, but from everything I've read, you are correct in doing the diacetyl
    rest now. Let us know how it turns out. :)

    SG was 1.031 today. The sample tasted good already! I hope it keeps the nice malty finish when
    it's actually ready.

    SG was 1.040 today (started at 1.057). I'll warm it up for diacetyl rest when I get around
    1.020. I can smell a light sulfur smell in my fermentation chamber, but mostly it smells of
    delicious malty g...

    OK, I finally got a chance to brew this today. Everything per the recipe, but I was a couple
    degrees low on the mash temp and ended up with a OG of 1.057. I'm sure it will still be fine.
    It's cooling ...

    Not an expert myself, but it seems like the diacetyl rest is of debatable use, like other hoary
    practices of homebrewing. I did rest this beer, but I couldn't detect any diacetyl before or
    after the r...

    Looking to create an Oktoberfest/Marzen style beer. This is what I have experimentally thrown
    together so far - open to feedback ideas what missing? BTW this is a half batch 3gal size3.3
