    Thats great information, that I had never considered but is why I started this thread. To find
    information that I had not considered.So the thermogenic affect of the fermenting yeast will
    try to drive...

    I used a single cooling controller for a while but found that as fermentation ended the beer
    wouldn't hold its temp as well as I liked. Once the yeast is finished with most of the sugars
    and stops gen...

  • Posted in thread: you know what really grinds my gears on 09-26-2014 at 01:29 PM
    Absolutely. I'll recommend that new brewers start with something like an IPA because it's so
    easy to mask your failures behind all of the hops, but if you've been brewing for a while and
    you can't mak...

    I'd guess that your most likely culprit is the krausen remaining in your carboy. Remember, you
    can't sanitize dirt - it's still dirt.However I'm not entirely clear on your process. You

    Moved to the Columbus/Tryon area from Raleigh last year. Hops and Vines is a great shop but I
    do miss the selection available from American Brewmaster and Atlantic Brew Supply!

    StarSan is easy to test. As noted above, it is an acid sanitizer, and its pH must be below
    3(ish?) to work effectively. I have some pH test strips which work in that range so I can
    confirm my StarSan ...

    You may also have started with an amber extract, which would have some of those darker malt
    flavors to begin with. Caramelization would increase those flavors.

    Very nice! I've been thinking about the same concoction. Eventually I hope to make my own syrup
    and use it to brew a partigyle root beer after the mash for a big stout or a wee heavy. Some
    commercial ...
