    Saccharomyces eubayanus

    Very Cool! That beer looks great btw! I would think a lower mash temperature could reduce the maltotriose formation and hopefully drive the attentuation up as well. Perhaps the use of some enzymes to increase fermentability, much like they use in "light" beers could help.

    1 Barrel 1 micro Brewery

    One barrel a month!? What is that a ten gallon system brewed once a weekend? That volume is so low you won't ever be able to keep one client happy. There is plenty of information out there. Get on Google, write a business plan, and actually think this through. I don't think you grasp the amount...

    You said you kegged it, how does it taste? Any noticeable weird off gassing during fermentation? Pictures?

    Saccharomyces eubayanus

    Any luck with this quest? I happened to stumble upon this article in an unrelated avenue of the internet and had the same question as you.

    saison Brett

    So I made my first sour saison with a sour mash and Brett added to the secondary. My question is, I now have a pellicle, will I ruin my beer by trying it before the pellicle f falls? I don't want to age itr forever, am I good to try and drink at will?

    A good recipe to brew for Lent fasting

    Go for under-attenuation. This leaves more residual sugars and will bulk up the body. Mash high, boil for two hours, use Munich malt as your base. Throw in some unmalted barley and wheat. Use a low attenuating yeast, like a Scottish yeast. Ferment cool, and your good to go.

    Sour Mash Ale

    So I just kegged up my Kentucky common today. It tastes damn delicious. I'll well definitely brew again. Basically it is slightly sweet, perhaps under attenuated because of the sour mash, has nice corn sweetness, and is extremely drinkable. What I've gathered for a full sour mash is to sour at...

    How to get Motor Oil black color.

    A good idea for those dark grains is to use what you need in the mash too hit your necessary pH then cold steep the rest. This extracts color and flavor but little harshness. There is no or very little fermentables in dark roasted grains.

    floaters in commercial beer?

    I had this as well in a great lakes beer. My understanding is that they are strands of protein that have clumped together. It has no effect on taste. I believe a possible solution is PVPP, or polyvinylpolypyrrodinol, aka polyclar.

    Sour Mash Ale

    Thought I would update once again on the Kentucky common I made that was inspired by this thread. I racked it to the secondary, and it tasted fantastic! Sourness was subtle, not overpowering but complimentary. The corn sweetness came through nice. We'll see for sure in a couple weeks when I keg it.

    Guess what I found in my keg of Witbier today!!

    I have grown to like that sound. I brew more than I can drink and generally I'm happy to see a keg finally kick cause that means the next thing in my pipeline can be tapped. So much beer,so very much beer. I suppose I could stop brewing every weekend but it's just so much damn fun

    Beer Laws : Hope this is not true for all of you there!

    I think this is to prevent kegs from being stolen which is a good thing, especially for the little brewer

    Sour Mash Ale

    Well whatever the case may be, I like sour beers and I soured my Kentucky common.That being the case here's an update. I've begun messing around with my souring temperature for my sour wort lactobacillus delbrukii ferment. I've found that for a two day sour the temperature can be anywhere...
