    Kind of disappointed with the yeast. Used recommended pitching rate, and got down to 1.013 from
    1.05. Really quite buttery in smell and taste. Did a d rest for a full three days as well.
    Hopefully, mo...

    When we are talking about the beer being "watered down", does this just mean that the alcohol
    and hops will be slightly lowered, or will the beer really have an extra "watery" quality to it

    I am thinking about brewing a saison with chamomile as the spice, so I am curious how yours

    at the bott...

    style technicalities aside, my question is: if I use gelatin or pvpp or whatever to drop the
    ale yeast out of my beer in secondary, and then add lager yeast before bottling, is this a good
    idea? Am i ...

    I have a weizen bock sitting in the primary fermenter (sg = 1070). The yeast I used was white
    labs Heff IV (wlp 380 i think). I was thinking that I would put this into secondary for a few
    days, then c...
