  • Posted in thread: DME Boil time? on 04-28-2015 at 01:19 AM
    No problem. You may be seeing yeast instead of DME however. Are you using a new strain than you
    have in the past? Some strains are more clumpy looking than others. Or is this the first time
    you used a...

  • Posted in thread: Diacetyl has faded with aging on 04-26-2015 at 04:27 AM
    After brewing a quick Scottish 70/- (2 weeks in the carboy) for competition, I submitted it
    with the fear of diacetyl due to the short conditioning time. I kept tabs on the quality of the
    beer as it c...

  • Posted in thread: underpitching for esters on 02-27-2015 at 03:15 AM
    I'm going to be brewing a Best Bitter (1.040) this weekend and want to slightly under pitch my
    London ESB yeast for a good amount of ester production. The last time I brewed an English
    Bitter I made a...

  • Posted in thread: Will beer carbonate faster with more yeast? on 05-21-2014 at 03:12 AM
    If more yeast was transferred to the bottling bucket then yes, it will carb faster. You will
    also have more yeast sediment in your bottles though. You can check them out a week at a time
    and see where...

    1) Since you just bought a new fermenter, just a rinse to get the dust out will be fine, but
    make sure to sanitize with star-san or something similar. After fermenting is done, use PBW
    before your nex...

  • Posted in thread: How do YOU bottle aged big beers? on 04-23-2014 at 04:48 AM
    I'm always afraid of yeast dropping out, so I'll bottle after 4 weeks, then age as long as
    necessary. If you go over that, I'm sure there will still be enough yeast to carbonate your
    beer, but adding ...

  • Posted in thread: What's wrong here? on 04-22-2014 at 03:35 AM
    I've found that when I get muddled beers it's because I'm trying to get creative with my
    recipe. Keeping it simple usually alleviates muddled flavors. You may find that a SMaSH beer
    with less hops may...

  • Posted in thread: Also have low carbonation on 04-22-2014 at 03:07 AM
    Regular 12oz bottles? Normal caps? Possibly a leak? Head retention has to do with the proteins.
    Was it an extract? If you used irish moss or whirfloc you could have dropped out some proteins.
    Dirty gl...

    What do your IPAs taste like? Why do they taste off? Your process and ingredients would help

  • Posted in thread: Help with Higher than expected SG on 04-20-2014 at 05:26 AM
    Yeah add water till you get your target SG. You can use a brewing calculator like the BrewBot
    app to do this. Then take out the same amount of wort as the amount of water you added to get
    back down to...

Thanks for the input
