    Kolsch Recipe Critique

    I go 60 with the white labs all the time. Make a good size starter, no problem. I suggest making the same recipe twice and use the different yeasts. Or, split a 10 gallon batch and pitch the different strains. It's surprising the difference between the 2. Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

    Kolsch Recipe Critique

    Looks good. My personal preference is for the white labs Kolsch yeast over the wyeast. Different strains. But that's just a personal preference. Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

    First pour tastes off

    I think it might be a little bit like that. It's usually only 2-3 oz. after the first bit,the beer tastes good. It's interesting. Maybe the small amount in the shanks is flat and warmer and tastes funny. It reminds me of needing to clear the lines before opening. At my local brewery. Didn't...

    First pour tastes off

    More beer is where I order my stuff. Well maybe I won't worry about pouring off as much. I used to work at a local brewery and we had to clear the tap lines every day for opener shifts. Maybe it's just part of it. The beers are fine. In fact just got 2nd for an amber ale at a local comp last...

    First pour tastes off

    Hey all, Seems like I need to run off a little beer on my kegerator to get rid of an off taste. Maybe a 4-6 oz and then the beer tastes fine. I never had this problem with the hand held picnic taps. I have perlick faucets and about 6feet of line. Do any of you need to clear your tap lines...

    Vienna "lager" with Kolsch yeast?

    Oh, forgot to mention, I'm currently putting together a recipe to basically do what you're hoping to do. More or less making a red Kolsch, but with Vienna malt instead of pilsner.

    Vienna "lager" with Kolsch yeast?

    I would go with the WLP029 Kolsch instead of the wyeast. I think it highlights the malts a little better. I think it will be great. Especially if you keep it in primary for 3-4 weeks then let it cold condition in a keg or something for another 3 weeks. I feel like the Kolsch yeast does better...

    drilling through the door of a 50's GE fridge

    Looking to put faucets on my 50's fridge. What are the tools I need to drill through that steel? Any tips and tricks? Seen plenty of thread on vintage builds, but not many details on how to get the holes in the door for the shanks. Thanks for your time.

    Vintage GE Kegerator

    I guess I meant the whole door. What kind of drill bits do I need to get through the door?

    BIAB v. Traditional Mash Tun (Boom goes the dynamite!)

    I've done a 10gallon batch on my BIAB set up twice. While it's not impossible, it does SUCK!!!! And I will not do it again. I would just do a double brew day if I want to make 10gallons of the same thing or set up a cheap and easy cooler mash tun like Denny Introduced.

    BIAB v. Traditional Mash Tun (Boom goes the dynamite!)

    Huh. I don't lose that much. I use whirlfloc in my boil and whirlpool it after chilling to settle the trub. I don't have a ball valve on my kettle, so I siphon off the top. I try not to get a ton of trub in the fermenter, but don't really care that much. The siphoning off the yeast cake after...
