The streaking makes me think lacto. Here's a pellicle from the Pellicle Photo Collection thread. There aren't any bubbles, but it looks similar. I definitely wouldn't dump it. It'll probably make...

I've always wondered about this myself. I've often heard that the mash-out is used to end conversion and stabilize the wort, but that doesn't make much sense to me. I can't really think of a reason...

Okay, I have to admit that I've often tasted what I thought was horrible band-aid like flavors when I used too much roasted barley. Can you post your recipe? I suspect you used it in fairly high...

I absolutely love Salvator. The only doppelbock that I like a little better is Ayinger Celebrator.

I'm guessing it's because of the low efficiency, personally. Did you ever pin down that problem? I was having huge efficiency problems on any beers with a large portion of wheat in the grist, and I...

This is hypothetical, but does the yeast go through a second life cycle in the bottle, meaning that they will first use oxygen to reproduce, then ferment the available priming sugar? I would think...

I'm not meaning to be argumentative, but I recall all of the cask ales I had in the UK had a solid head on 'em. It was on the small side, I'll grant, but there was definitely a head.
