Posted in thread: Interesting experiment with frozen, unboiled wort. on 06-24-2015 at 05:31 PM
Maybe I'm not quite following, but it sounds like you added a gallon of water and 1.5-2 gallons
of 1.021 unhopped wort to 5 gallons of 1.039 beer? If that's the case then you would probably
end up wit...

appropriate amount of yeast pitched. Ferment controlled temp of 66F. The best used by date on
the 051 is July 2, 2015. This was not even close to an appropriate amount of yeast. Since it
was so close...

The colder you keep the fridge, the lower you can set the CO2 pressure. So if you want it to
have 3 volumes, you can set the fridge at 34F and set the CO2 to around 14 psi. If you set it
at 17 psi, th...

losing volume to...

It's the line length. 5 ft is way too short. 8 ft might be ok at 8 psi, but you're probably
going to have undercarbed beer if you let it sit at that pressure at 40F. Personally I think 10
ft lines are...

I usually leave it 3 weeks in bottle, 5+ days in the fridge. When chilling the c02 needs to
move into the beer. This happens much more easily when chilled. Look up keg carbing charts for
fridge temp v...

I haven't used S-04 in years so I can't really remember much of what it was like. I remember
that I wasn't a huge fan of it though (which is why I stopped using it). From what I can
remember I feel li...

I agree that the fruity notes in English beers mostly come from the yeast. Though you may get
some raisiny figgy notes from darker crystal malts. My favorite English yeast is Wyeast 1318.
Nice fruity ...
