The vodka trick definitely works.

Also, take note that the oven-hot coconut will rapidly cool in the beer, and the beer will barely increase in temp; any localized killing of yeast cells will be...

That does sound good. Did you do anything to sterilize the ginger root, or just throw it in the carboy fresh? The only spoiled batch I've ever had was from a carboy adjunct that we forgot to...

Well, to be fair, that OG was assuming 80% efficiency where we usually get 85+. I suppose it may end up closer to 75%, but even then, the OG will be huge. I've got enough hop additions to get it to...

Yeah, I was already thinking yeast cake harvesting for this fella. I'm not sure how to go about wort additions just yet, and this recipe originally had no simple sugars in it. It IS unnecessarily...

Does anyone have any idea how high of an OG this yeast is capable of? I put together a recipe for an IIPA and frankly, the results are terrifying. I planned on making a decent starter, but am...

A little update for the StarSan-in-the-Boil Blonde: it turned out FANTASTIC. Threre is a hint of StarSan-ny goodness in it, but it isn't at all unpleasant. In fact, any friend who's had it and...

Looking good so far! I'm digging the experiment. Be sure to keep us updated on how the flavors develop, too. One question tho: given that it was a 140 min boil, did you know it would take that long?...

Actually, base washing glass is extremely effective. Either base or acid, but either way, make sure its at least 3 pH away from neutral to utilize it.

Yeah, no kidding. I would shy away from NaOH or KOH if you could, since most people aren't prepared to handle those kinds of caustic chemicals (and/or treat any resulting burns).

Is that glass or a better bottle carboy? Use a carboy brush on it for a while. I'd try the bleach too, but just be sure to rinse the heck out of it afterward.

Yikes, that sucks. I would still try and culture out your jars to find the source, then you'll know for future brews. If there's a small scratch in your bottling bucket or something, you might not...

Lol, did your beer come to you in the middle of the night saying "Daddy, I had an accident?"

I'm surprised you didn't blow the lid off that thing.
