    Dry Yeast for Hefeweizen

    I just made last Friday the Harold-Is-Weizen receipe but tossed in Lallemand Munich Classic AND Munich. I started it out at 66 for 1 day, 68 for 1 day, and then let if free rise for 3 days (stopped at 74F). Going to keg it tonight and get it carbed up for a party this weekend. I'll be back...

    Building a Mash Tun. SS Braid or Manifold?

    I have the larger hot water heater SS mesh tubing with solid copper wire (ground wire from house wiring) spiraled inside it to avoid flattening out. My cooler is the rectangular Coleman 48QT. With all that being said, I get an avg of 75% brewhouse efficiency based on my corona mill's crush and...

    Dry Yeast for Hefeweizen

    I have not use WB-06. When I started this thread, I was brewing a hefe with Danstar Munich Classic yeast. It turned out great and still more on the clove side. If anyone has tried WB-06, please chime in as that would be good to know what flavors it produces (clove, banana, bubblegum, etc...)...

    Tannin extraction?

    I was brewing today over lunch (batch sprarge) but needed to run out for ice. I captured 5G and put in my Brew kettle, put a bucket under the ball valve of my mash tun to collect the last gallon or so, and then headed out. I was gone about an hour and thought "damn, I might pull some tannins...

    Thanks everyone! I'll give the Munich Classic Ale Yeast a try and report back with findings. If I get my act together, I'll brew in a few days. Prost! Chris

    Wyeast - Bavarian Lager 2206 and Stalled fermentation?

    Thought I'd close the loop on this one. The keg kicked a couple days ago. I'll be making this one again! It was a very clean beer from a yeast perspective and was more of a malt dominate flavored beer. When it was younger, I got some citrus and floral notes from the late hope additions. I...

    Wyeast - Bavarian Lager 2206 and Stalled fermentation?

    I thought I had a stalled fermentation. I made a Riverwest Stein Clone (see below) with an OG of 1.047 ( I missed my OG by 10 points but I digress). I read this month's Zymurgy where it talks about starting your lager (I used Wyeast - Bavarian Lager 2206) at 70F until signs of fermentation and...

    Sour Beer help

    Thanks for the advice. I'll probably buy a 3G better bottle and transfer to it. Will be an interesting sour experiment and drink some kind of beverage in a few months. Cheers! Chris Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

    Sour Beer help

    Hey gang, I recently brewed an English Mild and "pumpkinized" it. I went really light on the spices and it still came out too spicy for my taste. Instead of giving it away to people that really love spiced beers, I thought about souring it. I blended a glass of New Belgium's Le Terroir and...

    Wyeast 2112 (Cal Lager) or 1007 (German Ale) in a Bock?

    Thanks. My club has a competition in the spring at a small brewery. Winner gets to brew on there system but they don't want to tie up their fermenters by lagering. Will definitely try a true lager yeast one of these days but will probably try the 2112 yeast at lower temps. Sent from my iPad...

    Wyeast 2112 (Cal Lager) or 1007 (German Ale) in a Bock?

    I think in a recent zymurgy, I saw a recipe for a Baltic Porter with Wyeast 2112 California Lager yeast. It got me thinking...Last fall and winter, I brewed an Oktoberfest and Bock with Wyeast 1007 German Ale (Kolsch) yeast with very positive reviews. I don't think I fermented at the bottom of...
