    Wlp002

    Did you oxygenated your wort enough?

    Wlp002

    I do want some. I've heard of excessive diacetyl if not done right

    Wlp002

    I'm brewing with wlp002 for the first time to make a holiday spice ale. I've read it can produce a lot of diacetyl. Anyone have a good fermentation schedule for this strain that includes a diacetyl rest. Also the best temperature for a moderately clean fermentation. I was thinking of starting at...

    HERMs system hlt build

    So I can't find any 3/8" compression bulkheads from stainless brewing. Anyone know a good place to find them?

    HERMs system hlt build

    Awesome. I will probably have to drop to the 3/8 since the kettle is about 13.8 in diameter. Did you do weldless? I need to get the 3/8 weldless adapters as well I assume

    HERMs system hlt build

    I recently purchased an ss brewtech 10 gallon kettle. I want to turn it into a hlt for a HERMS system I'm working on. I'm not sure which steel coil to buy to fit into that specific kettle. I also wanted to do a weldless installation and I'm not sure exactly what parts I need. Any help is appreciated

    Butyric acid

    When I made it i used my ss mashtun with mtss for temp control. I purged the little headspace remaining with co2 and sealed with sanitized plastic wrap. After 2 days I emptied the mashtun and boiled.

    Butyric acid

    I brewed a berliner weiss 2 months ago. It's attempted to do a sour mash and it smelled horrific at first which I've read might not be abnormal. The vomit or butyric acid smell has decreased tremendously but it still is there a little. Now the flavor wasn't there before but will the scent go away?

    Butyric acid

    I brewed a berliner weiss 2 months ago and attempted a sour mash. I heard it supposed to stink and everything I've read speaks about an unpleasant aroma when it's done in the sour mash. The smell of vomit is subtle but it doesn't taste like it. Will the smell ever go away?
