Honestly, I'm still don't understand the full importance of lacing, but when I saw this (from a modified batch of Ed's Haus):



it did bring a bit of joy to my day... And, no, I don't rush my drinking...

From following lots of threads on here it seems the best lace comes from using a lil' bit of flaked wheat in your brew. I haven't tried it yet myself, but it's on the list of things I want to try in the near future.

I've always taken lacing as a sign of a healthy beer. I'm always skeptical of the beers of mine that don't have it.

No flaked barley or wheat in this... just Ed's Haus ale with additional hops...

Did you go AG on this one thorongil? If so, did you do a protien rest? Oh and why are the lacing lines so close together??? LOL

If I remember correctly, it means you had good protein development that would tend to have good head retention along with the lacing.

AG = yes, protien rest = no. It is just Ed's Haus with some FWH...
