DMS from Fermentation?

I brewed my first pilsner (also my first lager) two weekends ago and it tasted great going into the fermenter; there was no hint of DMS. That made sense because I boiled vigorously for 90 min and...

Here are my 2 cents:

1. When do you keg your beer? I keg my beer once all yeast action is complete. Fermentation is usually complete after 3-4 days, but the yeast are still actively absorbing...

I believe that's a belgian witbier rather than an american wheat beer. You might try the Jamil Show (http://thebrewingnetwork.com/shows/The-Jamil-Show/Witbier-The-Jamil-Show-03-13-06) for some...

I get these smells often from various wheat yeasts regardless of fermentation temperature. It usually happens toward the end of fermentation and dissipates after fermentation has stopped.

There's a flavor in the American Wheat style that comes from the yeast. It's hard to describe, but you know it when you taste it. In my opinion, S-05 or Nottingham would not produce that flavor and...

Update:

The bubbling has only slowed a little since my initial post. I took a gravity reading today; it was down to 1.016, so I'm confident it'll make it down close to where it needs to be.

Ha! Yeah, I guess the main thing was I didn't have one of the right size. But I really don't think the stopper is necessary. Works either way.

My take on the BMBF/Picnic tap issues

I just started kegging about a month-and-a-half ago, and last week I had occasion to give some homebrew away to friends. So I read all the posts about the BMBF and so I thought I try something like...

I had it for the first time a month ago. I was surprised that it wasn't all that bitter. It's all about hop flavor, and the bitterness just complements the flavor. It's a great beer.

Yes, it will affect the bitterness, but there's no way he can get IIPA hop flavor with 3 oz of hops. I say shoot for a pale ale and he'll be happier with the results.

That does not look like enough hops for a double IPA. I used 4 oz during the boil and 4 oz for a dry hop in my last IIPA. It was pretty hoppy, but not over-the-top for the style. The hops you have...

Good to hear! Did the pale ale have the traditional American hops along with the coriander/orange? I'd think coriander might clash with the hops, but if you can pull it off that's great.
