    Option 2 seems the most flexible. I'd just go with that, since you say it's the same cost as
    option 1.

    I didn't intend it as a counterpoint, I was agreeing with you. And you probably have discussed
    this with me before as I have a hate-on for attempts to over science homebrewing. At a 5gal
    scale, its as...

    Let's say we do this same experiment again and again...would we get the same results? Yes. It
    was a very controlled experiment. It's not like flipping a coin and I find it hard to believe
    that you wou...

    I passed the BJCP tasting exam and I suck at some off flavours (scored an 80!). My wife has no
    training or certification but is a far better taster than I am. What BJCP judges do have is a
    vocabulary ...

    Well, if the beer is skunky, that's a different story. That usually comes from UV light (sun)
    coming into contact with the beer and reacting with isomerized alpha acids. And if it is
    estery, unfortuna...

    But one question I have about the bjcp judges vs. the average beer drinker - though these
    judges might be able to tell if a beer is to style, and possibly recognize any off-flavors,
    what makes everyon...

    The experiment in question is a single snapshot with low statistical power and relies pretty
    mostly on sensory evaluation. Do all yeasts behave this way? Does WLP090 behave like this in
    other worts? E...

    If your problems are indeed due to DMS, and you keg, you can get rid of it fairly easily. DMS
    is a sulfur compound, and is highly volatile. You can force it out of your beer by "scrubbing"
    it with CO2...

    74 F is a little hot for Chico. It's all good, though; I've ruined a lot of batches, but each
    one is a learning experience. I am sure your sulfur bomb will eventually be drinkable.
    Unfortunately the h...

  • Posted in thread: Saflager 34/70 temps on 04-13-2015 at 08:40 PM
    That is quite low for W-34/70. I don't think I've ever fermented it below 48 F, and my instinct
    is that 40 F will be too low, and that the yeast won't ferment. If they do actually start
    chugging along...
