    Hello Again The most common hop of the day was probably a cascade. The yeast? well that's
    anyone's guess. I think just plain old yeast was probably used the most as there were probably
    no sophisticate...

  • Posted in thread: Fruit in primary, after fermetation is complete on 05-20-2010 at 07:29 PM
    You're going to get a lot of conflicting responses, but let me start it off. Putting fruit in
    the primary AFTER the initial fermentation is the best way to go. There's less risk of
    contamination, beca...

  • Posted in thread: What do you think of this Imperial Hefeweizen Recipe? on 05-20-2010 at 07:12 PM
    Somebody who does a lot of extract brewing needs to chime in here, but from what I
    recall...Extracts tend to finish with a higher FG than if you were to mash the grain yourself.
    For a beer that big, I...

    And that retailer would be on my list of "never buy from" and "spread the news about their
    practices" list.Yeah, even though the "retailer" has a good reputation, the incident left me
    with a bad taste...

    FWIW...Be careful when posting about a retailer's crush. Some people are entirely too
    sensitive, and may take it the wrong way. I mentioned an issue I had with efficiency once, and
    everyone (including...

    Ummnnn, I still think you need to bump up the wheat. Maybe do 6-7 pounds of wheat and 4-5
    pounds of pilsner. Also, for your first Hefe, you might want to go with WL300. I feel like
    that's the gold sta...

    Ummnnn, that recipe calls for only a single 60 minute hop addition (1/2 willamette, 1/2
    crystal). No offense to BM, but you can use just about any mild flavored hop with the same
    effect. At 60 minutes...

  • Posted in thread: Critique my IPA Recipe on 03-08-2010 at 06:23 PM
    It actually looks pretty close to perfect to me. I've used the "mix it all up" method of
    hopping plenty of times with great results....I tend to like my IPA's drier, so I'd personally
    mash at around 1...

  • Posted in thread: Headspace when racking to secondary (oxidation) on 02-18-2010 at 06:43 PM
    Can't you just dose it with some potassium metabisulfite? Metabisulfites are used to prevent
    oxidation and spoilage in wine. Why not mead?

    You also have over two pounds of crystal malt. That's most likely your problem. :mug:
