  • Sorry to everyone for starting what seems to be the mother of all tangent spawning threads, the "funny things you've overheard about beer". That thing is just plain horrible.

    I wouldn't worry about chilling them. Some comps don't store them cold until a day or so before
    the judging.

  • Posted in thread: Diacetyl prevention on 08-16-2016 at 02:09 PM
    I've never heard of wild yeast producing high levels of diacetyl; pediococcus will and the
    remedy is to pitch brettanomyces along with it (if you're intentionally souring) as brett will
    clean up the d...

    The beans; some people will add beans, nibs or cocoa powder to the boil. I've done this and
    preferred the character I got from a tincture. Homemade tinctures are almost always added at

    Are you expecting different answers than in your other thread?

    There's no way to easily measure alpha acid in home grown hops, plus they can vary from year to
    year. So usually it's recommended to use them for your late additions rather than for a
    bittering additi...

    This has been my favorite method so far, you do a tincture or add
    it to the boil, I'd probably break them up a bit to maximize sur...

    I usually do a couple smoked beers per year but I've never used liquid smoke. I personally

  • Posted in thread: diacetyl rest on 08-08-2016 at 12:52 PM
    Do the diacetyl rest towards the end of primary fermentation, before racking off the yeast or
    cold crashing. I usually do it when I'm about 80% there to my expected final gravity. You do it
    so the yea...

    I've never lived in Utah, but I spent 25 years in Alabama and can confirm that it is indeed a
    state run by idiots. Exhibit A: homebrewing not legal until 2013.Well, we only beat you by a
    few years; le...
