    One thing I have always found to be a little weird is the hop character of a beer when I sample
    it right when I pitch the yeast. No matter the hops, style, etc... it always seems that the hop
    characte...

    Your yeast advice is contrary to my LHBS owner. This time, I'm gonna go with him, since
    "proper" pitching rates are supposed to be like triple what you get in a White Labs vial. Plus,
    US-05 is a clean...

    After a 4 month break from brewing (work has been terrible!), I'm finally gonna brew again this
    weekend. (I'll also get my new iPad right in the middle of brewing to make it an absolutely
    perfect day....

    Jesse,I hate to do it, but I have to disagree. I've done it this way for 6 or 8 batches now,
    and I can tell you for SURE, based on my latest batch, that the beer being served isn't
    over-carbonated. Th...

    No, I'm not asking how pressure forces the CO2 to dissolve into the beer.I don't like to
    "force" carb my kegs in the traditional method. I think I shake it too hard or something, but
    my first two kegs...

    UPDATE: I tasted a small sample this morning, and though it's obviously not carbonated yet,
    being cold gave me a better idea of its quality. The flavor is unique, but that's probably due
    to the fact t...

    Not yet. Didn't want to waste any more before checking to see if this batch was toast. Also,
    I'm down to only Simcoe pellets and I need to get a hop bag.

  • Posted in thread: Is it an infection? on 11-13-2009 at 01:26 AM
    Well, the recipe was 1 oz. of Simcoe leaf hops (mash hop) and 1 oz. of Simcoe FWH, then 3x1 oz.
    additions of Simcoe during the boil. Total IBU was supposed to be 100+. Could that be the
    issue? If so, ...

    What IS a pellicle? The best I can tell from some google searches seems to indicate that it's
    formed from a particular strand of yeast that is used for lambic beer brewing.I've also seen
    some comments...
