    The beer was good. Nowhere near as sweet or as ruby red as Lindemans, but my wife and I both
    liked it a lot. It was reddish-orange, brilliantly clear, and had a big, pink head. Beautiful

    How's this coming along? I've been trying to figure out how to make a quick-version of the
    framboise without having to add the sour bugs. We're taking different approaches, obviously,
    but I thought I'...

    ...and three years later: I moved before I got the chance to bottle this batch, but not before
    I got the chance to taste it and take notes. Then I lost the notes. By the time I got back to
    brewing, th...

    Thought I'd chime in here and hopefully allay some concerns. I bought a six month old pack at a
    discount. The pack didn't swell much and the krausen was certainly nothing to write home about,
    but it w...

    Congratulations on your lager.+1 to everything Yooper said. I actually insulate the probe
    against my carboy so it detects nothing but the beer temperature. Nothing fancy, at all
    actually, I just press...

    I'll be stepping up an expired lager yeast with an estimated 35% viability. If I'm stepping it
    up with 3 different starters, growing in the advised 65-70*F temperature range for lager
    starters, am I g...

    Good question, Trent. After looking around some more, I realize that 1.008 is going to be too
    dry.I've been playing around with different ideas, such as adding crystal, backsweetening with
    lactose, or...

    Ha, thanks Ryan. I thought it might be related to the preserving properties of beer, via pH or
    alcohol. It's amazing how fast it starts to stink when the beer is removed. I was just curious
    about e. c...

  • Posted in thread: Strange Happenings In My Carboy on 03-06-2011 at 06:25 PM
    Sure it's happened to others around here, so I just wanted to ask a random question: Sometimes
    when I get lazy, I rinse out the carboy pretty well but fill it up to soak the brown ring of
    krausen and ...

    To answer my own question, I brewed up Jamil's steam beer and fermented it with saflager 23 at
    58. Mashed it with a 30-45 hochkurz schedule and boiled a thin decoction of just liquid for the
    mashout. ...
