Started working at a commercial brewery about 6 months ago and currently enrolled in AGB working brewers course, which I will complete in June. My brother in law got me into it, as an extract brewer. I've actually never brewed an extract brew in my life, I also have never bottled a whole batch. Went straight in at all grain and kegging.

  • Posted in thread: Mash temp too high - what effects? on 05-26-2012 at 12:53 AM
    A good rule of thumb for a mash is strike water is 12 degrees higher than desired mash temp.
    not perfect but will be pretty close and not kill all enzymatic reaction, which is most likely
    what happene...

    You put 100% of the hop matter into the fermenter? I seem to recall hearing something to the
    10-15% range. Its not hard in CO to evaporate quickly if need be. :DI'm not sure the heating
    elements will ...

    A proper whirlpool can not be achieved this way, the obstruction of the drill head would ruin
    the flow of particulate. The trub/break moves in a donut shaped pattern, up through the middle,
    then down ...

  • Posted in thread: Diacetyl Rest on Lager way to hott!!! help on 05-09-2012 at 01:27 AM
    How'd that turn out? remember? I would guess some higher alcohols and maybe some extra haze
    from beating up the yeast, but maybe a loooooooonnngggg layering would help. either way should
    be interestin...

    I don't care how you run your life, if you can justify stealing from one company and not
    another, thats fine. The pic doesn't look like it is a macrobrewery, as it would be covered in
    names, so most l...

    5 years is a long time for any beer. Just had a 5 year dfh world wide stout and it was mellow
    and good. Had a 5 year Weyerbacher double simcoe ipa and it was not. Tasted of oranges and had
    definitely ...

    No, this one is. I got it from a distributor for $60. I just don't need it anymore.Beer
    distributors don't own kegs, breweries do. Unless it was a keg manufacturer / distributor, in
    which case give us...

    That was my mistake, I meant flocculation, I apologize to anyone who read that, thats what I

  • Posted in thread: washing apples for wild yeast cider on 02-12-2012 at 07:16 PM
    Definitely all correct, wasn't bringing it up as a fear as much as something to know about when
    making cider, because even though it is not enough to kill you it is not the most desirable
    flavor. Most...

  • Posted in thread: Will phenols age out? on 02-12-2012 at 12:07 PM
    Just finished a batch of pale ale. Should have known better but I used an extremely old pack of
    yeast. Even though I stepped it up a few times I think wild yeast took over. I had a sample of
    the beer ...
