+1 to that. One week isn't enough time in the bottle for proper carbonation. 3 weeks at 70F is the minimum. And then another 2 days minimum in the fridge.

Hmmm... beer and water huh? A kolsch is supposed to be crisp a dry, but certainly not watery. What was your bottling procedure like? Has your beer had a full 3 weeks in the bottle at 70F? Under...

I can do that. The inline TDS meter will certainly make it a snap.

I have noticed that there are fluctuations in the numbers. The fight against TDS creep has been a constant battle. And last week...

Should I send my RO to Ward Labs?

I recently installed a BRS RO system in my brewery (ok, it's my basement bathroom). The 4-stage unit performs beautifully - 276TDS in / 004TDS out. Assuming I use 100% RO to brew, is it still...

brewers best kolsh

Extract kits often turn out darker than you'd expect due to Maillard reaction - darkening of sugars in boiling wort. Your beer doesn't need additional yeast. Just let it sit conditioning in the...

What do you guys do for aeration of wort?

I use a Venturi tube attached to my auto-siphon. Aerates my chilled wort as I rack into the fermenter... That said, I would love love love one of those air stones

Oh man. I feel your pain. Same thing happened to me with a PM stout using WLP007. The batch was slow to finish. After 3 weeks I bottled and rimed to 1.5vol. And after 6 weeks in the bottle I was...

Congrats on your first brew! I'd attribute the "nutty" aroma to the kilned and roasted grains you likely used, but there's no real way of knowing unless you post your recipe. If the aroma/flavor...

I think it's just the nature of kegged beer. Agitating is probably your best option to keep yeasties in suspension. Otherwise you could always bottle your Belgians, saisons and hefes to guarantee...

Refrigeration won't help the beer carbonate, but it will facilitate the absorption of co2... Carb at 70f for three weeks or more and chill for at least 48hours

Keezers have a tendency to be colder at the bottom than at the top. Very cold beer will have less flavor than a beer served at 45F. Do you use a fan in your keezer to maintain a more consistent...

It's unlikely that you killed all the yeast, even at 105. Just give it time. It can sometimes take 48-72 hrs for signs of fermentation to appear.

Try chilling one down for 48 hours an see if that makes a difference. If you carb'd on the low side, assuming 62F, then it might just take a little longer for those bottles to get fizzy. Warm the...

Cold crashing will both compact the trub in your fermenter and reduce the amount of sediment in your bottles. Try to get your beer below 40F and hold it there for at least 72 hours. Longer would be...
