  • Posted in thread: Calcium Chloride from a pool store? on 05-09-2012 at 03:53 AM
    Most chemicals sold at a pool supply store are not food grade because they are typically (1)
    less pure and (2) manufactured in facilities that process other unsafe chemicals (think
    peanuts).Here is a ...

    I highly encourage folks in this forum to read, if nothing else, the paper abstracts.Expand
    your scientific brewing knowledge! :)

    As others mentioned, the average temperature is much cooler than TX.You may consider dedicating
    a smaller room to brewing and install a window unit.

  • Posted in thread: Anyone Return Beer For A Refund? on 03-21-2012 at 09:15 PM
    I just feel like if someone is willing enough to go back to the store to exchange or refund a 6
    pack of beer based on off tastes, they'd be inclined to check the "brew on" or "best before"
    date prior ...

    Why didn't you check the "recommended by" date on the bottle when you purchased it?Why was the
    store selling old beer in their coolers?Do you check the date on every six-pack you purchase?
    ;)

  • Posted in thread: Anyone Return Beer For A Refund? on 03-21-2012 at 06:09 PM
    I'm too old to accept subpar beer. :DI've probably returned ~10 six packs over the last couple
    of years:[*]Heavily oxidized (liquid cardboard)[*]Skunked (UV light damage from sitting out too
    long)[*]I...

  • Posted in thread: Huge Dry hop amount,but no aroma in IPA! on 02-23-2012 at 07:14 PM
    somewhat correct, but i wouldn't suggest to someone that they raise the temp above 80 degrees
    for a d rest because ferment temps were mid 70's. it's just not gonna clear up that much
    diacetyl at that ...

  • Posted in thread: Huge Dry hop amount,but no aroma in IPA! on 02-23-2012 at 06:20 PM
    However, I've never tried a Diacetyl rest after my beer's been cold-crashed, kegged, and dry
    hopped.Ya, once you separate the beer from the yeast, your only option is to pitch actively
    fermenting yeas...

    You should really dry hop above 60F. Otherwise, it will take significantly longer to release
    the hop oils (think several weeks to months).

  • Posted in thread: Sour Brown via a sour mash on 02-22-2012 at 02:12 AM
    No, you won't achieve a comparable sour intensity or flavor with a sour mash alone.You can
    certainly combine a sour mash with a traditional barrel souring to speed up the process, but
    plan to blend a ...
