    Brewed 60 HL of my recipe at a local brewery back in July; should be released within the next

    I'm pretty new to brewing lagers but after visiting a local micro brewery I'm trying a
    different fermentation schedule. Pitch at 50 and raise temp 1 degree every day for 10 days,
    hold at 60 for a coup...

    I just got the score sheets from my very first homebrew competition. I entered a Saison into
    the Amber Waves of Grain event in NY. I didn't win any awards, but I scored a 31. It did get
    advanced to a ...

    I believe it's "Lighten up, Francis." ;)I'm not a huge fan of the term "homebrewer" myself but
    I don't get all bent out of shape about it. I often just use the term "amateur brewer."

    I always advise new lager brewers to use dry yeast. Cheap and easy to pitch enough cells. Be
    sure to rehydrate as per manufacturer's product sheet instructions.

    Osagedr, I had a question on the recipe formulation itself. I see that you use a small
    percentage of Pils as a secondary base malt to the Munich. Is this just for the added diastatic
    power? I am plann...

    Can't remember if I entered already. If I didn't, this is my entry ;)

    Congratulations. Winning that medal is a huge deal and certainly qualifies you as an expert on
    how to brew lagers. Well done! I know I'm going to thoroughly re-examine my own procedures
    based on your ...

    I've qualified for this several times but never bothered to enter. Hardly anyone knows or cares
    about the MCAB as far as I can tell.

  • Posted in thread: How long does your oxygen tank last you? on 03-28-2014 at 05:27 PM
    I hate to be Captain Obvious, but the point of aeration is to achieve your target ppm of oxygen
    in your wort, not to get the most batches out of a disposable canister (I also started with the
    small re...
