I cool immediately. If I had more patience, I'd probably do a 180F hop stand.

Not sure if this has been posted but I've noticed after opening a bottle and taking a sip or two that foam forms rather quickly and rises to the top. Is this because of the rye?

Nope, that is atypical. Could be overpriming, incomplete fermentation, or an infection.

Thanks and if I were to guess then could be possibly one or both of the first 2. That was a "learning" brew day.

Sorry to keep pestering but do you start off with RO water and your only addition to water chemistry is the gypsum? Or do u start with tap water?

I use my tap water and add some gypsum to up the sulfate level. I add it to the kettle since I don't want it to drop the pH of my mash. Here's my water report...

pH 7.4
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Est 164
Electrical Conductivity, mmho/cm 0.27
Cations / Anions, me/L 2.8 / 2.7
ppm
Sodium, Na 11
Potassium, K 2
Calcium, Ca 34
Magnesium, Mg 7
Total Hardness, CaCO3 114
Nitrate, NO3-N < 0.1 (SAFE)
Sulfate, SO4-S 19 (note: this works out to an actual 57 ppm sulfate)
Chloride, Cl 3
Carbonate, CO3 < 1
Bicarbonate, HCO3 90
Total Alkalinity, CaCO3 74

Thanks. I thought the beer gods were smiling on me this weekend....normally when I grab some 1450 its days from expiring and I have to build it up a lot....they just received a fresh batch yesterday, 1 week old.....


Then.... I just dropped one of my glass carboys while cleaning.

Oh, man, sorry about the carboy. I switchd to buckets and never looked back after I bumped one carboy into another one and lost ten gal. of double decocted pils.
