    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    I honestly used to know enough several years ago about that topic. I do know corn meal/grits/polenta is fine to use. Just watch the sodium content, they sometimes like to add salt in them.

    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    Umm...no that's false. It's the same corb, the thing is you can't use it because of the oils present in corn on the cob in it's current state. Don't do it, use corn meal or maize flakes. On your typical corn on the cobs there are oils present in the kernels. Those oils will ruin your beer.

    Pac Man Yeast

    Sorry for the delayed response. You I wasn't able to harvest any live cultures. I ended up taking 24 5ml samples in search of viable pacman yeast. I didn't come across any viable cultures. :(

    Don't worry about the coffee, if you soaked them in vodka or bourbon for awhile then you're golden. I didn't sanitize my coffee out of curiosity.

    I plan on kegging this bad boy either tomorrow or next weekend. I will repost my findings with a picture of what I found under the scope. I also want to take a gc/ms headspace sample to see what coffee components made it through the final product. :D

    Indeed I do, and I do believe I know where you're going with this..but correct me please if I'm wrong. I use star san to sanitize everything, but the minuet amounts that is residual from the carboy is irrelevant as it sufacting capabilities degrades when beer takes its place in the carboy. That...

    Strawberry lemonade beer

    Or make a strawberry lambic, that would come out perfect in the flavor and tartness.

    15 minute decoction boil will get you the color you're longing for.

    This is my Foreign Extra Stout that I crafted. I decided to rack this to my secondary and I dropped 3.5 oz of coffee grounds without sanitizing it first just as an experiment. Then three weeks later I got this going on! Yayz!
