    Probably not but try it in the glass first. Bisulfite appears to offer promise as it has the
    potential to reduce nasty things like acetaldehyde and diacetyl in finished beer to less
    bothersome compoun...

    I'm curious if this could have a positive effect on a beer that's already been brewed? I have
    about 4 gallons of a Belgian Quad in a keg, and I get a distinct chlorinated-tasting solvent
    taste from it...

    Use something like Wyeast Pitch Rate Calculator. You want 2 million cells per milliliter wort
    per degree plato for a lager like that--so something around 30 million cells / milliliter. Play
    with a few...

    I'm not so sure I got really bad gas out of my regular homebrews...but my second batch was an
    extract version of Bee Cave Brewery Porter (delicious recipe, EdWort!) with 16 ounces of
    Malto-Dextrine po...

    Keep in mind I haven't done a beer that heavy all take my advice with a big grain of
    salt: Mash temperature seems a bit high to me for something that high of gravity. Perhaps
    getting a bit ...

    For that kind of heat, you are going to need a fridge.Keep looking, I see cheap and free
    fridges on CL all the time. You just have to be ready to pounce, I've lost out by being less
    than a hour too la...

  • Posted in thread: Repeated higher than expected attenuation- cause? on 05-03-2011 at 06:56 PM
    I'm also wondering if it's cause I take my OG reading prior to pitching, and then pitch the
    entire starter rather than decanting and just pitching the slurry, and that waters it down
    enough to make my...

  • Posted in thread: primary on a stir plate on 05-03-2011 at 06:45 PM
    I wonder what effect on the flavor of the beer having all the trub constantly agitated into
    solution would have? Would it throw off odd flavors as yeast-in-poor-health that would normally
    just die hap...

    Sounds very interesting to do a little reseach on how one would go about

    season anymore, tho...
