Posted in thread: Has anyone partygiled a belgian strong on 05-17-2013 at 04:13 PM
It's a historically accurate technique for the strong belgian ales, brew (for example) a triple
from first runnings then use the rest for a patersbier or belgian single. I've often added a
bit more cr...
Posted in thread: Wyeast 3724 High Temp ! on 01-22-2013 at 03:21 PM
3724 is one of my favorite strains. The spicy notes can work really well in a lot of ale
styles, not just Saisons. I'll typically overpitch, and start the ferment in the mid 80s,
ramping to at least 9...

The first half of this experiment is now on tap. Efficiency was a bit higher than expected, so
the brief time the mash was too hot didn't adversely affect the beer. Tasting notes: A distinct
taste of ...

So since you aren't sure you'll like it, you decided to make 12 gallons of it? Hehe, when you
put it like that . . . . :oThe extra cost for grain is insignificant; for me the cost of a
homebrew is the...

No opinions? Brewing this tomorrow; I'll update the thread with tasting notes after the
fermentation has slowed.

Oh, one more thing - I'd still have the LME left. After some thought, I thought I'd do
something like this:After the above recipe is made and the wort boiled, half is chilled and
transfered to a ferme...

Posted in thread: transferring from growler to bottle to avoid boom on 11-27-2012 at 12:45 AM
Fermentation rates vary a whole lot, so it's hard to say. I've had it go to completion in under
2 days (for an entire 5 gal batch), and had bottles that 2 weeks after priming hadn't finished
Posted in thread: transferring from growler to bottle to avoid boom on 11-26-2012 at 08:40 PM
If the growlers are not meant for something pressurized like beer or soda, then yes you're
running the risk of having them explode.All is not lost, though. Let the secondary fermentation
finish up wit...

I would have to second this. If it has fermented more than half way to your expected FG, just
let it sit in the water bath. With that much mass (water + beer) to heat/cool, day and night
temps will av...
