Ultimately?

A little too fruity for a true lager and a little too bitter for a Kolsch, but I can't taste any weird off-flavors anymore.

I can't say that I'm a fan of S-23 and I wouldn't...

For the rest, I have ramped the temperature to ~65F. It took about two days to get there and I started a little late (when the reading was 1.010).

I don't think it's chlorophenol because I use...

Yeah, the diacetyl is reduced somewhat, but it still has a way to go.

The only thing that I can think of that may have produced DMS is boiling for 60 minutes instead of 90.

I even used pale malt, boiled in an open pot and chilled below 80 within 15 minutes. I am...

Odd Off-Flavor in Lager

So I am fermenting my first lager and I am concerned about an off-flavor that I have detected in my gravity samples. The two samples I withdrew were awful, to say the least.

Part of the flavor...

Sterling Hops Are Good Medicine

I just got back from my LHBS with 2.0 oz of Sterling pellets and I have to say, I am impressed.

They smell delicious: spicy, floral, with perhaps a little honeysuckle and lemon peel. I am not...

Shipyard Summer Ale. It tastes exactly like nothing. Pretty amazing really, if you think about it.

From what I've read, pilsner malt is not a prerequisite for a good pilsner. In "Designing Great Beers" it is noted that half of the second round pilsners used 2-row instead of pilsner.

I really like Amarillo, but after brewing two pale ales that were heavy on Amarillo, I'd have to say that I like this hop best with other hops for balance. On its own, Amarillo is really fruity and...

2. Hop this beer with HBC 342 exclusively.

3. Brew it with forbidden rice to obtain an...

Thanks to all the saison brewers that have replied! I think that I'll try 3711 for my first and swamp it at 80F r.t. All the talk about 3724 getting stuck at 1.030 is worrisome.
