    Thanks for the suggestions - I finally got around to making this. Went with natural/pressed
    apple juice and Nottingham yeast. Added 3 cups of water with lime juice (for acid) and steeped
    two tea bags ...

    So I've made a few batches of Apfelwein before, but never anything I'd really call a cider. For
    my first attempt I'd like to try an English-style cider.What I have:Wyeast Cider

    I say try it! Start small - I would use no more than 3% seawater in the strike water/lauter
    water, and maybe make a quick 1 gallon test batch. This is based on nothing but guesstimation,
    but as Gose i...

    Planning my summer batch of hefe - for this beer I want to keep it more traditional with nice

    Racking over to a glass carboy has solved the mold problem! For the first few weeks after
    racking, there was a pellicle/kraeusen(ish) thing that formed on top of the beer (it was
    tan-colored and about...

    So hard to tell. Mold needs oxygen, any chance you have a kegging system and could flush the
    headspace with CO2? Make sure the airlock stays filled, and the stopper is snug. If it still
    returns it is ...

    Looks like mold to me. A healthy pellicle is always in the white-tan spectrum. Might be good to
    move it to a fermentor that is easier to seal, (e.g., carboy or better bottle).Crap. I racked
    it over to...

    Thanks for the suggestions - unfortunately school has been getting a bit crazy these past few
    weeks so I didn't have time to brew up anything to pitch onto the yeast before racking. As a
    bonus, I have...

    Quick update - I pitched the WLP665 with US-05 in primary, and after a fairly vigorous early
    ferment (kraeusen stayed up for around 3 weeks), it's fallen and a nice funky pellicle has
    formed. The smel...
