    No need to pasteurize if you just let it finish fermentation completely before bottling. You
    can always back sweeten as with ciders and meads. Just an idea. The other ideas suggested will
    work just fi...

    Soooo, I'm in a similar situation as OP here.... I got my cousin into brewing about 5 years
    ago. He brewed 2 or 3 beers, but then more or less quit. All of his equipment (extract kits,
    buckets, plasti...

    Since the heading on beer is provided by proteins and the protein rest is to break down these
    proteins, isn't the protein rest counterproductive in this case?How modified is his Belgian
    Pils? That's w...

    You might try doing a protein rest with that simple grist. As day trippr noted, not much in
    your grain bill to promote head.The other option is to add a little wheat or carapils to boost
    foam, but tha...
