Posted in thread: Hitting pre-boil OG, volumes, but missing post-boil OG (No sparge/No chill/Top off) on 07-13-2015 at 10:01 AM
Haha, sure :-) The topping off is to reach a temperature at which the wort is pretty stable, so
as not to extract too much bitterness, and trap the hop oil. I'll call for divine intervention

Hi there people!I'm extraordinarily confused by the numbers I get: I hit pre-boil OG, pre-boil
volume, and post-boil volume, but not post-boil OG. Most of my batches are like that, this is

Thanks a lot for your input. I have a friend making an actual kvass right now, so I'll see if
rye malt is a good substitute for toasted rye bread. She describes the mashing smell as porter
like, with ...

Sounds good then? Anyone having experience with cheese culture rather than Wyeast lacto or the
lacto on the husks?

Howdy!I've just visited Warsaw, and was simply amazed by the craft beer life around there. With
7 bars serving craft beers at a 5 minute walk from my hotel, this was an… interesting week
Posted in thread: Comparing US-05 and T-58: Would this APA show the differences? on 05-04-2015 at 10:36 AM
I urge caution with the sulfate level you are considering. While it does work well with the
neutral yeast strains, I'm unsure of the interaction with more phenolic strains. A great
pleasure to have a ...
Posted in thread: Sub 1.030 beers on 05-03-2015 at 07:51 PM
Getting near 1.025 OG, the beer is going to be super thin regardless of what we do. If you
really want to do a 1.025 beer, imho, you're really just trying to get enough flavor in there
to make it inte...

Hi there folks!Simple problem: I want to split a 6 gal. batch to test the impact of T-58
(described as estery, spicy) compared to a (neutral) US-05. I'm not sure what I should aim for
as a recipe to m...
Posted in thread: First time using a refractometer: strangely low readings post fermentation (adjusted) on 04-13-2015 at 12:14 PM
It certainly does not taste infected by anything I know, and such a big beer may be expected to
have some alcohol harshness in the first week of fermentation, right? So I guess I'll get a
Posted in thread: First time using a refractometer: strangely low readings post fermentation (adjusted) on 04-13-2015 at 11:51 AM
Thanks phug! This is exactly what I did with BeerSmith2's refractometer function. I plugged in
the estimated 1.080 OG, but with such a Brix reading, the resulting SG starts to make sense
only around 1...
