  • Posted in thread: Advantages to kegging? on 04-25-2015 at 12:09 AM
    I think you misunderstood right from the start, kegging is LESS complex! See that? We do
    agree!No really though, why ask for opinions on kegging if your mind was clearly already made
    up? I'm having tr...

  • Posted in thread: My first all grain recipe, constructive criticism. on 04-24-2015 at 01:53 PM
    I'd suggest, particularly for an APA, that you consider substituting Munich 10L for the Caramel
    in this recipe - and maybe swap it a in for a little of the 2-Row, making it something
    like:25oz 2-row (...

    Thanks for this - it makes a lot of sense, and I've been considering session-izing an IPA I've
    been making for the past couple years. I'll have to give your approach a try!

    Sorry - I was going on your assertions that 1) underpitching was helpful for repitches, and 2)
    that you don't need a lab to learn the behavior of your yeast.I guess I disagree less on the
    second state...

    bottling from a keg? now you are packaging the beer twice, that is more effortand you still
    gotta deal with bottlesregularly cleaning the lines and valves is effortreplacing equipment
    that wears out o...

    I've read that if you want to repitch it's better to underpitch to stimulate reproduction so
    you have a larger population of new cells.The calculators for recipes and yeast propagation are
    only guidel...

    Another thing that might be interesting to test - but would certainly take a considerably
    longer period, is another of White & Jamil's assertions: proper pitch rate/temp
    control/oxygenation, yeast wil...

    I don't think this is true at all. The pitch rates in MrMalty are consistent to what's in Yeast
    (published 2014), by Chris White (from, White Labs) and Jamil Zainasheff (from, MrMalty)It was
    published...

    I think Mr Malty is a good guide but it isn't anything close to science. The numbers that Mr
    Malty outputs are twice as big as what the yeast manufacturers say is optimal. It assumes that
    all ale stra...

    Interesting test... My first instinct, on looking at the setup of the test and recipe choice,
    is that using a beer that has any kind of significant hop presence could mask some flaws or
    off-flavors. T...
