    Isolated Yeast (Tree House): How to Identify and Characterize?

    I brewed an experimental batch on 07/15; pitched 60% S-04 at 68°F. 48hrs post-pitch, added 1st dry hop and 20% WB06 and 20% T58 and cranked temp to 75°F. Signs of fermentation completely quickly. Twice I've attempted to pull samples to measure and there is just too much muck still in...

    Isolated Yeast (Tree House): How to Identify and Characterize?

    Anyone thinking they condition with T58? If it finishes fermentation in 2-3 days, you don't have to wait that extra week to carbonate. A finishing yeast would also eliminate any O2 in the vessel. And using T58 as the finishing yeast under pressure, you're only going to pick up mild esters.

    Isolated Yeast (Tree House): How to Identify and Characterize?

    Won't that S-04 begin throwing fusels at 25°C? I'm thinking I might pitch S-04 first, 2-days in raise temps to the 25°-ish level, pitch S-33/T-58 along with first dry hop. Maybe cap the FV then and finish fermentation under pressure?

    National Homebrew Competition

    Wow. Really getting antsy waiting on Indy. I entered TN last year where they had major snafus and took 2wks to finish the judging. I really thought 1wk TOPS this year. How long does it take to verify results?

    Easy Way to Make Sour Beers (1 gal wort + dregs)

    I did this recently with a bottle of Cantillion Gueuze and the 1gal beer now is straight vinegar. I think next time just a couple days in the bottle before pitching into the 1gal.

    World Wide Stout

    It's a novelty beer, of sorts. It's nearly 50% stronger than BCBS and has no bourbon bump. Definitely worth trying. I bought a 4pk a couple years back. Drank one fresh and one at 2yrs. Still sitting on the last 2.

    A Tribute to Hunahpu

    1) It's only been three days (11/05-11/08). It will probably drop some more. 2) Did you oxygenate WELL before pitching? Beers this size, the yeast needs all the help it can get. Nutrients too? 3) If your (2) yeast vials were uber-fresh and your starter was on a stirplate, you pitched...

    Consecration kit from MoreBeer

    I think you answered your own question. I brewed this up on 08/06/16. I fermented with 3787 and racked onto bugs and currants on 09/10. On 10/23 I added cab sav and an oak spiral. I boiled the spiral first to get most of the potent oak tannins out. Moved it under the stairs with the rest...
