Aluminum and stainless steel are so corrosive that they instantly oxidize to create a protective surface that stops from further rusting, it's called passivation. If you touch stainless with steel or...

It's ok. Oxygen stops the yeast producing alcohol as you've pointed out. But it will consume all available oxygen and start fermenting once the oxygen is gone and this happens quickly. So, unless you...

Oxidisation during Lautering.

Quick question. Is it ok for me to lauter into the kettle without a hose and allowing it to splash? I've been doing this for a few brews no problems but saw Palmer saying you should minimize...

You're not suppose to serve the yeast with a Belgian beer like chimay. It even says to store upright on the bottle due to this.

However, I personally prefer to add the yeast to my 2nd glass. Just...

Is the saaz a good idea? I'd sub that for something else. Apparently when you think your going overboard with hops is the first sign of a good IPA.

Not sure why no aroma. Isn't centennial pine aroma not citrus? Haven't used it yet myself.

Perhaps you added the dry hops to soon or at too cold a temperature. 3.25oz seems like a lot and should...

Dry hop then cold crash. It pulls out some of the hop nasties and produces a more rounded hop flavor. Well in my opinion.

You can't add dormant yeast to already fermented beer and expect it to attenuate further. It'll just stay dormant because it's in a stressful environment without much sugars.

You need to make a...

Not too sure what method you're using. If you are using infusion mashing then you never move the grist from the mash tun. Instead you progressively add water in steps to increase the mash...

You can kind of see it in the mash tun. The liquid goes from cloudy to clear. If you do it for 60 to 90 min your pretty much going to achieve full conversion. I first tied the iodine test but found...

You shouldn't use under a Litre as the growth of the cells won't have a chance to reproduce before the food runs out. So there'll be some cell death. Assuming your starting with 100billion. I also...

You can't shake it up enough to be homogenous? Do that then measure it out. Chuck the leftovers in your boil, no point wasting it.

Must be very frustrating. With the hot side oxidisation this shouldn't be a problem. It will taste like paper or cardboard if that was the problem. It's oxidisation after fermentation that can cause...

Hop Astringency

A pH meter is mandatory. Strips don't work. Take a sample 15 min into your mash. Aim for 5.4 at room temp. You can't do anything to change it but know what to do for next time (add brewing salts)....

Hop Astringency

Well if it's not from pulling tannins during mashing then not sure. Perhaps you added the hops too late in the boil and they didn't boil off some off flavours. I don't add large quantities of hops...

I've had my CFC clogged from hop pellets before. From now on I'll always be using a hop bag if it's an IPA. The pump had no problems however so you'll probably be fine.
