    Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout

    I am thinking of freezing a habanero and then add half of it in the fermenter (I do 2.5g batches) for the last 4 days. Does this seem ok to start with? Rather too little than too much

    Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout

    Thanks. I will see what else I can get, but I do want some heat coming through

    Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout

    I have this on my list to brew. I don't have access to pasilla chilli, only in powder form. Is there other chillis that can be recommended or would the powder do the job? If the powder is fine, how much should I use as substitute?

    Specific Hops and Biotransformation

    OK. Different words to get to the same point. Maybe the fact that english isn't my first language is creating some form of miscommunication

    Specific Hops and Biotransformation

    You stated that biotransformation could be a myth and I gave you an example of a pro-brewer who doesn't "believe" in it which is in support of your statement. In other words, biotransformation might be overblown in it's effect on juiciness.

    Specific Hops and Biotransformation

    I listened to an interview with the brewer from Verdant (they make exceptional juicy ipa's) and he does not do the dryhopping for biotransformation and yet their beers are really good

    Specific Hops and Biotransformation

    I incidentally watched this this morning, but can't repeat it myself. There is a portion (the 25min mark) that they discuss this

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    @ Mothman Mine also came out with that colour. I have checked the recipe several times and also can't pinpoint the reason. 3.50 kg BEST Pale Ale (BESTMALZ) (3.0 SRM) Grain 3 76.9 % 0.85 kg BEST Vienna (BESTMALZ) (4.6 SRM) Grain...

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    I got 1.008 with US-05 mashing at 152f My previous batch to this one was 1.003 with everything the same, not sure what happened

    Oxidation?

    I changed something with my previous batch which was to siphon the wort out of the mash tun gently into the boil kettle as opposed to dropping from above. So far this beer (Edwort's Pale Ale) doesn't have the oxidation taste. I have a NEIPA in the fermenter at the moment which I will be...

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    Great recipe. Brewed it two weeks ago, but tried something different on the sparging which resulted in a very poor efficiency (56%). Used US-05 and even with the poor efficiency and over attenuation (91.8%), it is a very good beer. Going to make a new batch and stick to my normal continuous...

    oxidation problems when dry hopping

    Does the guys who have oxidation issues closely monitor and manage their mash ph? I am also having this issue and in the process of trying to figure it out. The current issue I am investigating is mash ph due to the lipoxygenase enzyme which is apparently a key part of oxidation. If the ph is...

    Oxidation?

    I see when I bottle there is a whirlpool effect taking place just below the tap. I shortened the hose and now noticed this. What could the reason be and how can I sort it out? https://youtu.be/CLgWMNDGEJU

    Pale Lager

    Unfortunately this is one of my batches that turned out a disaster due to heavy oxidation. I will be doing it again hopefully without the strong cardboard flavour

    Oatmeal Stout Yooper's Oatmeal Stout

    I brewed this in Jan 2016 twice...was actually my 3rd and 4th ever brews. I am still drinking from those two batches and a year later it is still one of the best beers I have done. I have my last bottle of the 3rd batch in the fridge for this coming weekend Thanks Yooper!

    Oxidation?

    I don't open the lid, I take the sample from the tap

    Oxidation?

    Interestingly today I opened a bottle that was completely flat of my last batch. Must've missed it when doing the priming sugar (per bottle). It had no off-flavour. The taste was exactly what I was after apart from the fact that it wasn't carbonated. Can the dextrose make a flavour impact?
