Haven't been on here in a while but saw this question. I mashed at 150F for 75mins. I do BIAB
in a big pot so this was a pretty simple single infusion. Did a sparge of sorts, letting the
bag drain and...
Posted in thread: Do hefeweizen's typically smell sour when opening the fermenter? on 02-05-2011 at 09:24 PM
I bottled a dunkel with 3068 recently and it had a sour smell. Like the typical banana you get
from a hefe mixed with a sour bite. Just had a bottle and can safely say that it tastes (and

So brew-in-a-bag results in more trub? I've never heard that. I've only done BIAB so I have no
frame of reference... I always figured that the grain and strainer bag was acting as a filter
just as muc...

I too needed a huge blowoff tube for 3068. I had been warned fortunately so I was all set.
Bottled my batch last week after an extended primary (got busy and never had a chance to
bottle). Sample tast...
Posted in thread: Beer Carbonation in bottles not happening too well on 01-27-2011 at 03:25 AM
Using carb tabs rules out a problem with the amount of priming sugar or with the priming
solution not being properly mixed. If the bottles have spent 3+ weeks at room temp and aren't
carbed, then mayb...

I have mixed feelings. It turned out very drinkable. Very lively carbonation, a slight acidic
twang, and a good grainy/wheaty character. But it did not get as sour as I would have liked. I

Personally, I would go easy on the dry hopping with NS in a saison. The nelson sauvin hops are
pretty pungent and it will probably take a bit of adjusting to balance the saison yeast with
the hops uni...

Great advice. There are a million ways to brew and in my (limited) experience, it's pretty hard
to mess up. Enjoy!

I find I get better results with a little lower grain to water ratio - about 5 gallons per 10
lbs (or 2 qt per lb). Then I batch sparge and add the second runnings til I hit my target
gravity (and hop...

Haven't seen much posted on these types of recipes. I've heard of smoked hefeweizen, though
never tasted one. But its winter and dark beers seem more appropriate, so I just brewed a
