    So I haven't been able too keep up with my beer brewing, or not often as I'd like so I thought
    maybe something that is supposed to be aged a long time (like a mead) would be a good idea for
    me. But he...

    I normally wouldn't think twice, but if Norther Brewer warned of it, I figure it must be some
    sort of super flocculator

    I'm bottling tomorrow and one of my beers warned that it used a highly flocculant yeast. And
    since I've had it in secondary for almost 4 weeks, I figured it would be good to add some extra
    yeast just ...

    This past friday I brewed a Northern Brewer ESB. The description of the yeast, Wyeast #1968
    London ESB, says that "This strain is so flocculant that additional aeration and agitation is
    needed." I was...

    So today I'm diving back into brewing with a double brew. My ESB was brewed perfectly without a
    hiccup, my Irish Dry Stout however has threw me a curveball. I steeped the roasted barley for
    the right ...

    You can just drop the hydro into the primary, but I find that it makes it very difficult to get
    an accurate reading. Just use a [beer]thief that comes with most kits, or as Yoop said, use a
    turkey bas...

    Now if you were to enter the brew into competition, then it would prolly be different. Not sure
    about that one...........:confused:

    In my expert opinion, what you've made is commonly known as... beer. Enjoy!

    I've recently done two wheats a Belgain Wit and a Honey Wheat. Both had a decent krausen when I
    bottled. Wheat beers have a pretty ridiculous amount of protein that makes the krausen more
    resistant to...

    I feel completely different about the matter. Even if you use exactly the same ingredients as
    someone else, you're beer will taste different than theirs, your efficiency is likely to be
    different, you...
