  • Posted in thread: What factors influence sweetness? on 01-23-2011 at 11:50 PM
    So does anyone know if mash temps do have an influence on sweetness? Fundamentally, I just want
    to figure out what conditions to alter to produce a sweeter or less sweet beer. The question
    partly aris...

    Jumping back to the original part of this thread, it makes sense that higher mash temps would
    produce a sweeter tasting beer if long-chain unfermentable, but still sweet tasting, sugars
    were produced....

    What factors do you use to control the sweetness of your beer? I assume that any difference
    between the actual attenuation and the limit of attenuation will increase sweetness, as this
    indicates the p...

  • Posted in thread: How does residual extract influence perceived sweetness? on 10-22-2010 at 09:27 PM
    I'm not sure I follow you. Obviously the constituents of the extract matter, because some forms
    of extract are perceived as sweet, while others are not. Carmelized sugars vs. dextrins, for
    example. Bu...

    Suppose we have two beers with the same attenuation percentage and the same percentage of
    fermentable and unfermentable sugars:Beer #1: OG: 1.100 FG: 1.023. Residual Extract:
    1.037Attenuation Percenta...

  • Posted in thread: Why aerate after putting the wort into the primary fermenter? on 10-21-2010 at 02:09 AM
    Note that yeast growth is not a separate process from fermentation; fermentation is the process
    of converting fermentable sugars into ethanol, carbon dioxide, and yeast biomass (i.e. more
    yeast) and a...

  • Posted in thread: Your experiences with flocculation? on 08-13-2010 at 09:20 PM
    Ok, so my assumption that this yeast behavior is NOT typical apparently is confirmed.To answer
    the questions posted so far:1. I have brewed using distilled water to which pH stabilizer was
    added, but ...

  • Posted in thread: Your experiences with flocculation? on 08-13-2010 at 04:57 PM
    In every batch I brew, using very different yeasts in very different batches, I consistently
    seem to have poor flocculation. By "poor," I mean that the beer will typically secondary for a
    couple of we...

  • Posted in thread: Are these force carbonating instructions B.S.? on 08-05-2010 at 09:03 PM
    On Midwest Supplies' site, they have these instructions for using a 0.5 micron carbonating
    stone:Using a carbonation stone will cut down the time needed to carbonate the beer to about
    1/2 hour. •The b...

  • Posted in thread: Foam but no carbonation on 08-05-2010 at 08:56 PM
    So, working on the assumption that my beer was overcarbonated, and that the foaming was CAUSING
    the lack of carbonation in the glass, I used the CO2 purge valve on the keg to let off CO2
    until there w...
