    Converting SS Brewtech kettle

    Did you oxygenated your wort enough?

    Wlp002

    I do want some. I've heard of excessive diacetyl if not done right

    Wlp002

    I'm brewing with wlp002 for the first time to make a holiday spice ale. I've read it can produce a lot of diacetyl. Anyone have a good fermentation schedule for this strain that includes a diacetyl rest. Also the best temperature for a moderately clean fermentation. I was thinking of starting at...

    HERMs system hlt build

    So I can't find any 3/8" compression bulkheads from stainless brewing. Anyone know a good place to find them?

    HERMs system hlt build

    Awesome. I will probably have to drop to the 3/8 since the kettle is about 13.8 in diameter. Did you do weldless? I need to get the 3/8 weldless adapters as well I assume

    HERMs system hlt build

    I recently purchased an ss brewtech 10 gallon kettle. I want to turn it into a hlt for a HERMS system I'm working on. I'm not sure which steel coil to buy to fit into that specific kettle. I also wanted to do a weldless installation and I'm not sure exactly what parts I need. Any help is appreciated

    Single Malt Sour?

    Has anyone every tried to make a single malt sour beer? I have some Redx malt and was thinking about trying to attempt a kettle sour SMaSH recipe. I can't find anything on whether or not it will really come out well. I know a lot of sour beers do not have complex ingredients but with out a...

    Butyric acid

    When I made it i used my ss mashtun with mtss for temp control. I purged the little headspace remaining with co2 and sealed with sanitized plastic wrap. After 2 days I emptied the mashtun and boiled.

    Butyric acid

    I brewed a berliner weiss 2 months ago. It's attempted to do a sour mash and it smelled horrific at first which I've read might not be abnormal. The vomit or butyric acid smell has decreased tremendously but it still is there a little. Now the flavor wasn't there before but will the scent go away?

    Butyric acid

    I brewed a berliner weiss 2 months ago and attempted a sour mash. I heard it supposed to stink and everything I've read speaks about an unpleasant aroma when it's done in the sour mash. The smell of vomit is subtle but it doesn't taste like it. Will the smell ever go away?

    Wild beer (experimenting with brett)

    I also what to see what happens when I take a very full bodied beer and add brett to see if it thins out. This is pure experimentation to see what happens.

    Wild beer (experimenting with brett)

    I understand that brett does not need to have gravity points to give off its wild character but I'm more interested on a partial brett fermentation. I want to see what the outcomes of an almost half brewers yeast, half brett fermentation produce.

    Wild beer (experimenting with brett)

    I've never heard of the flour but I'm curious now. I was reading the American Sours book and one of the techniques described was high Sach rest to allow the brett more complex sugars to eat.

    Wild beer (experimenting with brett)

    So I was going to try and experiment with a batch. I planned on trying to make a sour with no lacto or bacteria pitched with some brett character. I planned on mashing at 160 degrees to make sure there was some complex sugars left in the wort to allow the brett to do its work. I'm still working...

    Plate chiller or no?

    Is getting a plate chiller worth it or should I stick to my immersion chiller?
