Posted in thread: 97% attenuation, wtf?! on 10-18-2012 at 04:33 AM
So I did another gravity reading today, and it was down another point to 1.02. A few other
interesting things I noticed...- The smell does not have any hint of alcohol. It's a pleasant
fruity scent- I...

I don't think this is right. My understanding is that the majority of conversion takes place
very early on in the mash, so an extended mash won't cause more fermentable wort. Also, I
believe that as y...

I'm assuming he wanted something sweeter based on his reaction, but I think I'd be happy with
the attenuation.I was looking for dry, but below 1.008 or so the dryness is unpalatable. If I
had not used...

I have 3 hydrometers (don't ask..), and tested it with all of them, feeling sure there was
something wrong, but they were all within 1 gravity point of 1.003. My mash schedule was 10
minutes at 128*F,...

Just curious, how did it turn out over time? This exact thing just happened to me, and I'm
trying to figure out if I should dump the batch.

So I brewed a tripel last week, with an OG of 1.084, and pitched a 1.8L stir-plate starter of
3787, and let it self-rise to around 80*F. It's been a week now, and I checked it.. 1.003!
What's going on...

Having brewed two batches of Ruby at one of the McMenamins breweries, I can say for certain
that the beer is racked on top of the raspberry puree, the fruit does not get put in the boil.
They use the ...
Posted in thread: Brewing beer in a washing machine! on 12-20-2011 at 07:06 PM
Not sure why everyone keeps calling it a redneck setup.. assuming food grade tubing, a washing
machine is the perfect setup. It holds a bunch of liquid, it stirs constantly, and it has a
Posted in thread: Can someone give me advice on this Simcoe/Amarillo Belgian IIPA? on 11-05-2011 at 06:51 AM
Well, the theory was to pitch T-58, wait a couple days, then pitch S-05. Basically I want to
get a little bit of a Belgian flavor, but not too much. I guess alternatively I could split the
batch and b...
