  • Posted in thread: Boulevard Wort Transformation Open on 05-16-2013 at 12:04 AM
    Hey guys, in case you haven't heard. Boulevard is doing a cool experiment for craft beer week (
    am not super competitive, and very confident in my process, and I'm doing something simple
    that might b...

  • Posted in thread: Adding Zinc on 04-23-2013 at 09:35 PM
    I was planning on adding wyeast nutrient to a batch for the first time, but, alas, i forgot to
    pick it up. As per some of the above recommendations I will add zinc instead. I work in a
    molecular biolo...

  • Posted in thread: Who has experience with Wyeast 1945 Neobritannia? on 04-05-2013 at 04:09 PM
    In my experience british yeasts are very fast compared to american and belgian yeasts. I did a
    stout at 1.056 with Wyeast Irish Ale that went down to 1.012 in less than 48 hours. I kegged
    and served t...

  • Posted in thread: Kolsch yeast weirdness on 03-26-2013 at 02:34 AM
    I did an American wheat with kolsch and fermented at 58-60 and got a terrible lychee like ( I
    don't know if that's the right description, but it was WEIRD) flavor and aroma. I let it lager
    at carbonat...

    This method is also entirely hands off after pitching (aside from pushing buttons), but is NOT
    energy efficient.

    I rig my chest freezer to johnson controller set at 42F, which is where I also keep my kegs for
    serving. I also have an insulated cardboard carboy box (sheet insulation) that I can place
    inside the ch...

  • Posted in thread: Off Flavor...very strange one on 02-13-2013 at 09:36 PM
    Yeah, I am listening to the Basic Brewing Radio episode on water chemistry and they mentioned
    that the off flavor from using non-boiled non-filtered tap water is chemical, rubber. They
    mentioned that ...

  • Posted in thread: favorite ipa yeast? whats your go to? on 02-13-2013 at 07:30 PM
    I just used the White Labs Kolsch strain (029?) for a DIPA and I was very pleased with the
    results. I fermented a little cooler than you do because my ferm chamber was tied up with other
    stuff, but I ...

  • Posted in thread: favorite ipa yeast? whats your go to? on 02-13-2013 at 04:08 PM
    I've made some fantastic IPAs with Wyeast 2565 Kolsch yeast. Try to hit 62.F and it will be
    pretty damn amazing.

  • Posted in thread: Hot Fusel Alcohol Issue on 01-29-2013 at 09:23 PM
    With 1056 at 68F you should not be getting fusels, it may be esters that were produced and
    amplified by low pitch rate and lack of oxygen at the start? I guess you said you had a nice
    yeast count, so ...
