    Peaches

    I made a smoked peach and apricot sour last year that turned out great

    Mashing with biab using sous vide versus mashing with a bag in a cooler

    Thanks--I'll keep an eye out on deals for All-clad or one of the $100 brands you mentioned

    Mashing with biab using sous vide versus mashing with a bag in a cooler

    Any particular brand/model you'd recommend?

    SS Brew Bucket - Big Beers

    That's really odd--I made a RIS with it a couple of months ago with similar OG/FG as you and had no problems even with added lactose. I didn't cold crash, but I made a large starter. I'm happy enough with it that I'll use it again. I'm guessing you just used one pack of it?

    Are Trillium and Tree House really THAT good?

    They're both really good, but like what's been said, they don't stand head and shoulders above a lot of other breweries. I go up to Massachusetts once and year and if you ever get a chance to do the TH experience, it's pretty fun as long as it's not freezing. The good thing about having great...

    Berliner Weisse Fruitpop in Hell (Heavily Fruited Kettle Soured Berliner with Lactose)

    I've never used it except in the last 10-15 minutes of the boil--so when you add it post fermentation it's thicker and sweeter or did just the amount you added do that?

    Berliner Weisse Fruitpop in Hell (Heavily Fruited Kettle Soured Berliner with Lactose)

    Looks great! Why did you choose to add the lactose at kegging instead of late in the boil?

    Prairie Bomb! Clone

    I did a Xocoveza a few weeks ago with Darkness and was generally happy with it--I wish it had ended up a bit lower in gravity, but I'm chalking it up to the lactose I have in there (1.104-1.031)

    Reusing yeast for high gravity beer

    I have some glucoa I got some glucoamylase for my current batch in case I had a stuck fermentation I can try. I might try throwing in some dry yeast along with the kveik to help cover my bases. I'm shooting for a bigger OG for the next one to make a big ol' raspberry imperial milk stout.

    Reusing yeast for high gravity beer

    The stout I'm getting ready to bottle started a bit north of 1.100 so I might be pushing it with that. Maybe I'll see how a 100% kveik fermentation turns out.

    Reusing yeast for high gravity beer

    I was joking because of the violent fermentation I've gotten with the kveik I've used, but good to know for sure

    Reusing yeast for high gravity beer

    Maybe I'll copitch with Kviek and make a Brut Imperial Stout :)

    Reusing yeast for high gravity beer

    I have a batch of imperial stout that I'll be bottling this weekend and would like to turn around and make another batch in the next week or two. I used Imperial's The Darkness and would like to just add the next batch on top of it. Would this be advisable? I can also pitch US-04/05/Kviek if...

    Tart of Darkness

    I think I gave it about 3 weeks before I racked it

    Tart of Darkness

    I racked off to secondary to reclaim my fermenter. I also didn't want to worry about autolysis.

    The Cereal Killer is a damned BEAST!

    Mine is still blue :) I've also done 6-8 batches and still haven't gotten around to using a drill. Go hand crank!!

    Aerating an SS Brewbucket

    That's pretty impressive--my last beer was an imperial stout that started at 1.104 and is at 1.031 (with 8 oz of lactose) so I'm pretty happy so far--I expect it to drop a few more points. I figure if I'm sure my yeast has enough O2, that's one less thing to worry about.

    Aerating an SS Brewbucket

    About how much for that setup and how many batches can you aerate with a can?

    Aerating an SS Brewbucket

    Thanks--that's good to know

    Aerating an SS Brewbucket

    Maybe I'll go for that instead--what's recommended micron size for stones?
