    The first 24-36 hours. Ester precursors are produced in that time period, so that's when you
    need the control. The wet t-shirt method is probably good enough.Bryan

    Brett is not required, and you generally need prolonged ageing to get their character to really
    shine through - I.e. summer will be over.You do need to worry about temps with saisins - too
    much heat t...

    If you follow the link in my signature I have a couple of posts on using gelatin & the science
    behind it. Long story short, the gelatin will clear your beer at warmer temps, but not as well
    as at cool...

    He's just mad because he got slapped around after declaring that everyone who didn't share his
    exact sense of humour was a stick-in-the-mud.

    Haven't seen Homebrew Talk mentioned.Never seen that one - thanx for giving me something new to

    I don't think its weird at all - people often act very differently in person than they do in
    more private settings (even when the private settings are being broadcast, I guess). I'm
    probably nicer in-...

    but once you get to know their personalities, you get a lot more out of the humour...It's also
    a pretty good yardstick to give you an idea of which of your fellow homebrewers are about as
    interesting ...

    Basic Brewing and Beersmith are both great podcasts. The hosts on BrewingNetwork / Brewing With
    Style / Brew Strong are intolerable, immature douchebags. They have minimum quotas per show of
    3 full-vo...

  • Posted in thread: Missing Banana Esters, what am I doing wrong? on 07-07-2014 at 07:56 PM
    Ester production depends on a few things - too much O2 at pitching time, over pitching, too
    cool a fermentation temperature, and a lack of free amino nitrogen (usually from using extract)
    can all limi...

    Sorry, missed this when replying.Very interesting, and certainly helps to explain the
    differences between 100% Brett fermentations and mixed-fermentations. However, none of the
    conditions you describe...
