    GintarasI have never been able to detect any off flavor/ill effects from pitching champagne
    yeast. Near as I can tell its fairly neutral and can handle high alcohol environments, which
    makes it a good...

    Hopsalot, at the LHBS I frequent this is one of the lessons they teach brewers brewers who use
    adjuncts such as fruits, vegetables, juice and so on. They give great advice, I have lots of
    faith in the...

    Im pretty sure you have some wild yeast...the white layer on the top is called a pelicle
    (Pel-is -el) and is exactly what you look for when brewing Lambic beers. I would try it, just
    to see how it is ...

    I think part of the issue may be hydrometers measure sugar in a liquid, but it can't
    differentiate between fermentable and non fermentable sugars, which would give you a higher
    final gravity reading. ...

    I second binkman. You may want to shake up your fermenter to get the yeast on the bottom back
    into suspension. A good healthy shaking a few times a day should help you out, in addition to
    nutrients. I...

    I have always enjoyed my cherry oatmeal stout. I really dig the deep cherry flavor! If you
    don't have cherries try adding cherry essence at bottling, or maybe raspberry, black currant or
    chocolate ess...

  • Posted in thread: dry hop suggestions on 07-30-2011 at 04:52 PM
    One tried and true strain for dry hopping is Cascade. I like the citrus notes! Chinook is
    another great aroma hop. It is kind of a waste of a high alpha hop, but OT may be well worth
    it!

  • Posted in thread: kegging co2 question. on 04-16-2011 at 09:16 PM
    I bet that works really well. What I did was put the gas into the outpost so it bubbles from
    the bottom up, which is kind of like shaking it. I left the gas on, and let it sit in the lager
    box for a f...

  • Posted in thread: Fermenting Question on 04-10-2011 at 04:35 PM
    Also I would not be concerned with the stuff that settled to the bottom. If I had to guess its
    probably settled out from the grains and hops...

  • Posted in thread: Fermenting Question on 04-10-2011 at 04:18 PM
    I would not disturb your fermenter especially after its happily bubbling along. Different yeast
    strains will behave differently, and factors such as sugar content and temperature will play
    apart in th...
