Posted in thread: Decoction mash question on 07-24-2014 at 06:53 AM
I'm planning my first decoction mash for a saison. I've read that the grist pulled from the
mash should undergo a short (~ 10 min) saccharification step before boiling. It isn't clear to
me why this s...
Posted in thread: Smoked wheat beer feedback on 04-19-2014 at 08:54 PM
I'm recalling this from a year and a half ago now, but I do not think there was any peated malt
in the beer I sampled. It was rauchmalt, and a modest amount. The malted wheat was at the
Posted in thread: Smoked wheat beer feedback on 04-18-2014 at 05:05 AM
No, I wasn't brave enough. From what I remember of the original beer, and having made a number
of wits since then, I think I'd bump up the flaked wheat to 2lbs and drop the malted wheat to
4lbs. I'd a...
Posted in thread: Flemish Kiss dregs in a saison on 10-21-2013 at 04:36 AM
I made a saison, pitched 3724, and fermented for 3 weeks. The SG was a bit high (1.010), so I
decided to add Brett B dregs from a Flemish Kiss (The Commons brewery). For the first week or
so, nothing ...
Posted in thread: Washed ringwood behaving strangely on 09-30-2013 at 04:36 AM
I have a mason jar of washed ringwood in the fridge. This is the first time I've washed it, and
it seems to behave a bit strangely. While other strains I've used form a compact layer of yeast
at the b...

An update on this:FG was 1.004 (3.7% ABV) after 2 weeks, bottled conditioned up to 2.3 volumes.
The body on this beer is lacking a little bit, so I would push this to 2.8 volumes. It has a

Mangrove Jack's Workhorse yeast reportedly tolerates up to 90 F ferm temps. I've currently got
a batch going with it that I am bottling on Thursday. The batch was at my basement ambient
temps which ra...

Bottled this a week ago, and the FG was lower than predicted (1.012). Opened the first bottle
last night. Subbed out the 1oz of EXP 1210 dry hop for an ounce of apollo. It has fragrant

Posted in thread: Zesty IPA w/ EXP 1210 on 06-19-2013 at 05:01 AM
I ordered 4oz of EXP 1210 hops a few months ago, and have been waiting to use them. I decided
to brew up a 2.75g IPA today with EXP 1210 and Comet. It smelled amazing going into the
fermenter. Since I...
