High attenuation

Hello all, I've been noticing something and need some feedback. I routinely get attenuation over 80%, with many batches coming in over 85% and blowing way past my predicted FG. The beers have seemed...

I think it's just the temperature of the fermentation. It's amazing what an extra 10 degrees will do for those yeast to kick into high gear. You're in good shape. I've also read recently that if you...

Adding them together sounds way too simple. I'm sure a chemist could tell you exactly how to transfer this information into the information you need, but they are in short supply around here. If you...

All makes sense in my head. You mashed about as low as most do to get really fermentable wort and the sugars were 20% cane sugar. That, added with letting the yeast get warm, and those buggers are in...

If it were me, I'd say a beer that finished at 1.040 was undrinkable (but that's just me). Thus, adding another vial of yeast to see if it'll help get that gravity down is worth it, because I can't...

Thanks for the responses, everyone. So I went with adding salts just to the mash water. I've been reading up on chemistry, but some of it is not well described even in the beginners' write-ups. The...

The pH seems to be in a good range either way. I guess another way of asking the question is, if I want to hit certain ion concentrations to accentuate certain styles (i.e. higher sulfates for hoppy...

Salts just in mash water?

Hey all,

I'm getting into using Kai's water calculator for improving my beer by improving the chemistry of the mash, but I have a big question before I brew later today. I've got some guidelines...

It's really no problem. Lots of people don't worry about straining, because it's said that some hop particles actually aid the yeast in doing their thing, in some peculiar scientific way. The one...

Maybe it's the other way around? The ease of removing the labels has contributed to you buying them more often and enjoying them more?

Check out this thread (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f163/yeast-harvesting-novel-approach-348276/), which covers a nice way of making a big starter with the intent of saving some for next time.

I've heard all the same contradicting stuff, and I recently brewed a couple small batches with first-wort hops, so perhaps I can let you know in a little while when I can taste the results.

I think typically a secondary vessel is the death of primary fermentation because you rack the beer away from the mass of yeast in the primary fermentor. There's enough yeast in suspension to...
