Posted in thread: Brewing an IPA using Lager yeast (Wyeast 2124) on 01-24-2014 at 08:53 PM
I have not done an IPA with this yeast at ale temps, but I did an IPA/IPL comparison with US-05
vs WLP830 (which is WY2124, I'm pretty sure). US-05 was fermented at ale temps (66 F) and 830
at lager (...

I brewed an all-Galaxy IPA recently with a malt bill very similar to yours. I added all of the
hops as late additions, so the aroma/flavor in mine would have been pretty strong
comparatively, but I wi...
Posted in thread: Melanoidin/Aromatic in an Oktoberfest? on 01-23-2014 at 06:32 PM
I don't think aromatic is good for the style. However, if you're going to skip the decoction
mash, people often use melanoidin malt in German lagers to simulate the melanoidin flavor you'd
get if you ...

I agree that the hopping schedule is more of a pale ale, but your grain bill is much more of an
IPA. I'm not sure I agree RonPopeil as far as his assessment of your OG. I made an IPA last

I'm not a microbiologist, so my level of understanding of this is not deep. But my
understanding is that once the yeast go into dormancy, fermentable sugars are needed to get the
fermentation process ...

I do a D-rest when I hit 75% of my expected attenuation. In this case, let's assume you're
gonna finish somewhere in the teens. Then you'd get about 70 SG points of attenuation. 75% of
that would be a...
Posted in thread: lager/bock style fermentation yeast/sched on 01-17-2014 at 07:56 PM
The yeasts I would use for this would be WLP833 or maybe WLP860, which is seasonal, and I don't
think it will be available until a couple months from now.Schedule looks fine. D-rest when
you're at abo...
Posted in thread: Pilsner fermentation & priming on 01-17-2014 at 04:32 PM
If you are using a lager yeast, I think 16 C is a little bit high for the fermentation
temperature. I think you want to ferment closer to 10 C, otherwise the ester / diacetyl
production is going to be...
Posted in thread: Ambient lagering with WL830 on 01-15-2014 at 02:49 PM
When you say lagering, do you mean post-fermentation, right? I don't think that lagering at
that temperature is going to hurt your beer, but I'm not sure you will get the desired effect
of helping for...
