    ABOUT ME

  • I live with my fiance in Baltimore, MD. I graduated from the University of Delaware in 2008. I grew up in Lancaster, PA.
  • Homebrewing,duh!
  • Patent Examiner @ USPTO
  • Ben
  • Indie, Punk, most other types

  • The Simpson
  • I have been homebrewing since March 2009 and have been obsessed ever since. I started hombrewing because I am a chemical engineer by training and my job, as a Patent Examiner, did not give me the kind of hands on science/engineering I crave. Since March 09, I have gone from extract to all-grain, added a keezer, and have begun to dabble in yeast ranching. I can't get enough!

    China. No liquid yeast here unless you're willing to go to lengths to get it. Plus it's good to
    add bottle harvesting and yeast troubleshooting to my book of tricks.Well that explains it. Id
    agree wit...

    Is there a particular reason youre harvesting from the bottle? I believe WLP 565 and wyeast
    3724 are the dupont strain and with the commercial culture you dont need to worry about
    infection.

    I wouldnt let it sit on the oak for so long. Oak towards the end of your aging to taste

  • Posted in thread: Saaz / Styrian Goldings on 04-04-2015 at 06:35 PM
    I also like goldings (ekg or styrian) in my saisons. I find a saaz dry hop in any lightly
    flavored beer (blond, helles, wheat, etc) to be excellent

    Looks fine. Worry if it gets worse

    Fruit flies like the smell of fermentation. I wouldn't worry about them getting in if you think
    the seal is good. I also wouldn't try any pesticides around your beer.

    will you update this thread when its back in stock? I am interested.+1

    Will try this too, i am looking at doing a wheat beer and adding some raspberry honey at the
    end of the boil, or doing some fruit addition later. By all accounts that can lead to some
    vigorous ferment...
