Immediately expanded from just the kit to a total of 2 plastic pail fermentors and 2 carboys, and a wort chiller. After an extract, a partial grain kit and a cider I went AG.

    Ok, so I did not read all 2000+ posts. I got about 300 in and I won't have the time to read
    through all the rest. What is the peak drinking for this beer? I want it at its best for our
    wedding recepti...

    I'm in Asheville and we brought a bunch of New Glarus (from WI). However it hasn't worked out
    for us to trade with anyone yet. We are here until Sunday. Any takers who want to trade? We
    have Belgian R...

    It is calculated on total volume, not degrees Plato. If I factor in starting gravity it comes
    to .5-.6 million cells/mL/P. The references in the books don't get that specific to gravity.
    Just pitch s...

    I think there is a high margin of error in starters. Mine is on a stirplate and although the
    Brewers friend calculator can account for that I think my starters are ending up with a higher
    cell count t...

    As far as protein rest is concerned... Most maltsters will say their modern malts are modified
    enough that a protein rest is not necessary anymore.... But if you've made your Hefe with under
    modified ...

    There is a great journal article that was gifted to me a few years ago... It went into the FA
    release at different temps, over time and at different pHs. The control was malt that had been
    kilned to k...

    If one ends up with a beer that's too acidic, can't you add a little Sodium Bicarbonate or
    Calcium Carbonate? At least enough to raise the pH a little.I believe so. But the Lactic Acid
    will still leav...

    Greetings from Boston..I pitched my 15th hefe of the year on Friday ( all slight variations of
    the basic Bee Cave recipe) trying to hit the clove I so adore in Weihenstephaner and
    Franziskaner)I have ...

    After 2 years of brewing with the Bohemian/Bohemian combo (always with some munich) and in
    reviewing my notes in preparation to speak on this experiment at NHC this year I decided that I
    need to play ...

    Ok, Here is the latest update. On 6/30/15 I ran a double brew day (night), and brewed my Hefe
    and a BIAB Wit. I backed WAY off the Lactic acid and used store bought RO water for the
    majority of my wat...
