Posted in thread: What's your green beer like? on 01-28-2014 at 07:39 PM
I definitely don't judge my lagers by the green samples. It freaks me out every time like it's
infected but after lagering everything smooths out significantly. Ales on the lower gravity
scale seem to...
Posted in thread: White layer on wort. on 01-28-2014 at 07:08 PM
Looks like pediococcus to me. I don't toss anything unless it tastes horrible. If you bottle it
and let it age out it may turn out okay. I'd keep everything it touches isolated and if you
decide to bo...

It looks more like the web registration has expired. I hope it goes back up. I use it for every
batch.Same here. I know of others but I prefer yeastcalc. Should be a simple web
re-registration but I h...

you cannot d...

This is crazy to see this thread. The Thing IS my favorite movie of all time. I watch it every
year when it gets really cold out. Such a perfect movie. Maybe it's a homebrewer thing to love
Posted in thread: Improving body & head retention in rye beer. on 01-21-2014 at 08:58 PM
I guess I've never used rye in such a high percentage to run into this problem. If the malt is
anything like pils malt a protein rest would be beneficial. I also like to use Weyermann
Carafoam if I kn...
Posted in thread: Raspberry Ale Question on 01-21-2014 at 08:36 PM
I"ve always added the berries during secondary. If you add the berries while fermentation is
most active, the yeast is going to go wild and eat all the sugar available in those berries,
leaving you wi...
Posted in thread: no hop aroma on 01-21-2014 at 08:28 PM
I definitely wouldnt blame the whirpool invention. That actually sounds pretty cool!! I get
loads of snotty crap but isn't that just hot-break material and hops? What type of hops were
you using; pell...
Posted in thread: stir plate starters on 01-21-2014 at 08:12 PM
Yes, but the question is...how does that alter the time from boiling the DME to pitching into
the 5 gallons, or does it at all.?It would certainly shorten it if you have normally just let
the starter ...
