It'll take longer for the bread to rise, in my experience, but it'll work.

I personally like S-04, but I enjoy the tartness and breadyness it throws off and I ferment it low. It's not for everybody though. Some breweries really crank out the temperature (72F+) to get the...

The only trick or treaters we get are my girlfriend's bratty little cousin. They didn't even bother to dress up last year and came to collect their candy on the 30th.

I would like to have genuine...

I've had a few aged unibroue beers over the years and the Trois-Pistole is the one that aged the most gracefully for me. It is really dependent on where you buy your bottles and how you age them...

There was a brewery in Quebec that used maple sap instead of water in one of their beer. It had no noticeable effect (and was probably just a gimmick). Maple sap plus low grade maple syrup might be...

Most of my beers are ready within 7-10 days. A factor to consider is yeast strains. Some yeast strains do not work well at all under pressure and will take their sweet time to even eat the little bit...

This. I like S-04, but it isn't nearly as clean and neutral as US-05, especially if the temperatures get "up there". I know a lot of people say they are interchangeable, but to me, they aren't even...

I use well water. Nothing in it, altough it is very hard. Serves me well since I tend to brew English beers. I wouldn't attempt a pilsner or a wheat with it. For those styles, I cut it with RO.

My overall go to yeast is S-04, but if I had a LHBS that always stocked fresh wet strains (and more money), my go to yeast would probably be something like wy1469. Appropriate for pretty much every...

I'd wager that secondary aging is much more uniform, but since I'm in this for the long haul (I want to do vertical tastings for at least 3 to 5 years after bottling), this isn't of much concern to...

This, imho, confirms that you have something "wild" going on post-boil. Wild yeasts tend to be much more phenolic than domestic brewing yeast, throwing out medicinal flavours (band-aid, burnt rubber,...

Boiling starter wort takes 10-15 minutes tops. Cooling it in the sink takes about the same time, maximum. Is saving 30 minutes (if that) really worth the risk of taking nasty hot water straight from...

Keg/bottle and drink as soon as possible. Fruit flies are literally dripping with acetobacter, which turns alcohol into vinegar: it's a defense mechanism. There's no sense in adding to the beer. The...

Exactly. It's not the size of the prize or even the mising ribbon that's ridiculous, it's the apathy: "we'll bring it up at the meeting". Why would the organizer need to bring up something so trivial...
