You didn't grow the yeast up properly. Brett starters need 7-10 days on a stirplate. You should
have done that twice, probably 1l and then 3 or 4 if you have the equipment. So you
underpitched and pit...
Posted in thread: Denver/Boulder Brewers: Stomp them Grapes and Hop To It on 11-28-2013 at 03:01 AM
I bought grains for an RIS from Stomp on 11/09 and didn't pay attention to the crush until I
had my steep in strike water ready to go and loaded my mash tun with the grains, which was 8pm
on that Sund...

For my all brett beers (Sat. or Sun. brew-day), I go with a 1L 1040 starter mid-week, let that
ride 2 days, put that in the fridge overnight to sediment the brett, take it out of the fridge
and do ano...

You're probably safest just dumping it. Here's a pdf that gives some information, although it
doesn't provide enough information on pin cherry leaves or seeds specifically. As an example of
Posted in thread: Pin Cherry Beer Concern (Poisonous) on 10-28-2013 at 05:28 PM
A) its all a question of numbers. To determine if there's really any toxicity concern, you need
to determine the amount of cyanide per cherry pit, or some equivalent amount of cyanide per
mass of cher...

I think I was confused on your plans. It seems like your main business will be distributing
kegs to outside vendors. If that's the case, then yeah, the brite tank is only used right
before packaging a...
Posted in thread: Only flame out addition on 10-28-2013 at 05:09 AM
Some breweries like Crooked Stave only do a whirlpool addition. That's all, no other additions

Seems like a joke to me. It is not possible to have *no* chemicals in any substance.Yes, that's
why I thought it was amusing. The hope is that it was a joke, but for some reason I don't think
it is, a...
