  • Posted in thread: Will I smell/taste cola in my beer from keg? on 10-07-2014 at 11:10 PM
    After you clean your kegs, smell them. If there is a strong smell of soda, it very well might
    end up in your beer. Root beer, especially, is tenacious. I'm not sure of the solution for
    removing this.T...

  • Posted in thread: Will I smell/taste cola in my beer from keg? on 10-07-2014 at 10:40 PM
    I bought some used kegs and thought I had them cleaned and odor free. I racked a beer into one
    of them tonight and realized once it was to late that you could smell some cola odor in
    them.What are the...

  • Posted in thread: Mash PH, how low is too low? on 08-26-2014 at 01:52 PM
    I miss calculated my acid addition and the mash PH was at 5.02, by the end of the rest it was
    5.12. Is this too low? I usually shoot for 5.1-5.3 on my pale beers. So i'm not far off but I'm
    a little c...

    It is unlikely that you lost enough to be of concern unless you lost a good amount of the
    liquid volume. If anything do another round of starter wort. No need to buy any more yeast.What
    I lost was thi...

    My starter foamed over last night and I lost some good yeast. It's an english top cropping
    strain so a lot of the good yeast was pushed out the top. Should I just buy another smack pack
    and pitch it w...

  • Posted in thread: OG affect on IBU's on 04-13-2014 at 09:16 PM
    I overshot my OG today because I boiled off more than I anticipated. Will this affect the IBU's
    in the finished beer? I was shooting for 1.056 and ended up with 1.062.Thanks,Zach

    Two options: pitch is, and let it ride. Might be a little more.... characterful..... Than you
    intended, but whatever.Option 2: make it a bitter, lower the gravity to ~ 1.035 or 1.040 and
    make it a bit...

    Assuming 80% viability, you're going to pitch around 0.32 million cells/ per mL-dP, which is an
    underpitch of the commonly accepted 0.75 for ales and 1.5 for lagers. To answer your question,
    it will f...

    Any other opinions before I pitch this today?
