    I just pitched WLP833 for a Mai Bock. I hit target OG in 4 days at 48F. I raised it to 60F for
    48 hours before crashing. That worked well for me. It seems this has worked well with a few
    other brewers...

  • Posted in thread: Lager Yeast Questions on 02-22-2014 at 09:12 PM
    I routinely mix yeasts (both ales and lagers), and get great results. I just brewed a May Bock
    where I mixed German Bock and Munich yeast, and so far so good.I think that the mix between
    American and ...

    I have tried cooking with them before, and feeding them to my goat. The food was terrible, and
    the goat wouldn't touch the hops. The hops loose all of their yummy oils after just a few
    minutes, and al...

    Your goal is to get the good sugars locked inside the grain out, and water at the right temp
    will do just that. I don't think either set of instructions that you have read are the best. I
    would take t...

    In Oregon, cider is classified as a fruit wine. It does not have to be pasteurized at any point
    during the process. All breweries etc. have to have a food safety licence from the OLCC. To
    sell hard ci...

    I am brewing my Coffee Porter at this very moment.I have not tried mashing as beans, but I
    would suspect that it is not the most efficient way, lacking grind, time and temperatures.
    Anyone else has tr...

    Perhaps a cream ale then? If all lagers are out, then that just leaves hybrids, like steam,
    cream and kolsch.You have any suggestions oneandahalf?

    Bock or Double Bock?

  • Posted in thread: When to add coffee to my porter on 10-18-2013 at 11:19 PM
    I add whole beans in a nylon bag during my secondary fermentation (~55 deg F), and let them sit
    for about 4 to 5 days, or until the coffee aroma and flavor are to taste. That method works
    well for me....

  • Posted in thread: Can I add lemongrass to the keg?? on 08-17-2013 at 05:23 AM

    just add more lemon grass (or whatever) to make up for some lost flavor.
