  • Posted in thread: Beersmith just released the new version on 08-20-2016 at 08:59 PM
    I try to put in brew day & bottling notes as much as possible in the lower notes field. The
    upper one's for tasting notes, but still need to get in the habit of using the tasting notes
    field.That's wh...

    Craft Breweries: I don't know what part of the country you are in but overall there apparently
    is a bit of decline. I believe it is Zymurgy that prints the results of their nationwide survey
    every yea...

    I have a friend from Iran and he requested a fig beer. His father had brought a sapling from
    Iran and he had planted it in his back yard. The tree had special memories for him.When the

    forum.

  • Posted in thread: Salt addition technique on 08-05-2016 at 01:41 PM
    For my recirculating eBIAB, I treat the full volume of distilled water in the vessel (single).
    I mash in. Then I adjust mash pH with Phosphoric acid after the mash temp has stabilized; after
    5 minutes...

    I add my acid (usually phosphoric or lactic) to the mash to get the pH correct. Once the mash
    is done I add the salts based on the estimated post-boil volume. That gives me more confidence
    that the sa...

  • Posted in thread: What Are You Drinking Your Beer Out Of? on 07-27-2016 at 06:55 PM
    Since I make wooden tankards I kind of feel obligated to drink my beer from one of my own
    tankards. A plus is that wood is a much better insulator than glass or metal so my beer stays
    cold longer and ...

    Thanks day_trippr. volsherdeers, note that I found that the offending character does not have
    to be in the notes of the beer you are tapping. It would appear if there is any offending
    character in any...
