    I've had something similar happen with my last Dark Strong Ale. I usually add yeast at bottling
    on this beer, but last time I didn't... My notes indicate that the beer was in secondary for
    just over 3...

  • Posted in thread: Has anyone seen this? on 09-12-2012 at 04:21 AM
    Hi SS.I think what's going on here is the yeast cells are being electrostatically attracted to
    the sides of your fermenter. I have seen this before with a 'less than optimal' fermentation
    when the yea...

    It looks like it's been about a month since you're brew day. Any updates?

    tasting it periodically. After the initial slight drop in terribleness the flavor plateaued at

    etc.There is...

    Next time when brewing this toss a handful of flour (yup) in the boil kettle. You'll get a nice
    starch haze that will keep your brew cloudy longer. When the yeast flocs out, it will actually
    grab some...

  • Posted in thread: Late sugar additions on 09-29-2010 at 02:32 AM
    I would think that incremental adding a smaller portion of the sugars would be beneficial.
    Here's why:Adding a large amount of sugar at once to a actively fermenting brew will cause a
