  • Posted in thread: Potentially under pitched lager on 12-19-2013 at 09:48 PM
    I brewed a lager on Thursday and made a 2l starter with 1 pack of yeast. I was shooting for an
    OG of 1.047 and sparged rather slowly and got an efficiency of 87% resulting in an OG of 1.060.
    My questi...

    Looking to buy a chest freezer. I'd prefer if it could fit 4 corny kegs. Anyone selling a
    freezer or no where I can find one.

    I would think it came from you pulling some of the material off of the bottom then if you used
    gelatin and cold crashed, although some of it probably would have fallen out while it was
    sitting in the ...

    Unless your pH was WAY off, I would look at the hops rather than the grains. Using St. Paul tap
    water with the grain bill should be fine. Unless you shredded the husks to oblivion. There are
    a lot of ...

    Just wondering if anyone considered the water? Tap or carbon filtered?At that time, I used St.
    Paul MN tap water (and still use it). From what I've heard, it is pretty good. I treated it
    with campden ...

    I would steer clear of looking for the astringency in the mash and grains. I don't think that
    is where your astringency is coming from. I would look at the hops.Really? I did this same
    recipe except i...

    A refrac is a useful tool when measuring gravity. Ph usually isn't an issue unless you are
    doing an 100% base malt beer or a beer that uses a lot of dark grains. Bru N Water is a good
    spreadsheet to h...

    Based on countless posts in these forums, you are VERY unlikely to oversparge (i.e. run under
    1.010 gravity) when batch sparging. This is much more of a consideration when fly sparging. I
    would exclud...
