    American Wheat Beer Sterling Gold (3.5% AG, Light and Zesty)

    Biermuncher - how important is the rye malt here? This is close to impossible for me to get unless I buy raw rye and malt it myself. Do you see any possible substitutes for the rye malt, or is it vital to the recipe? Thank you, and another killer recipe from you as one has come to expect!

    American Pale Ale Lake Walk Pale Ale

    Hi, Amarillo is impossible to get nowadays! Has anyone attempted to substitute anything in its placE? I brewed up a bunch with Cascade instead of Amarillo, and will be dry hopping today as well. If not cascade, what substitutes would you recommend...centennial?

    Wyeast 1272 vs US-05 - BIG Difference!

    Update: Exactly 1 week after pitching: US 05: 1012 Wyeat 1272: 1020. Taste samples are both excellent, but strangely the US 05 is now leading the wonderful hop aroma race. It seems the 1272 has driven off some of the volatiles. I dunked the hydrometer several times to "awaken" the sample, and...

    Wyeast 1272 vs US-05 - BIG Difference!

    I doubt cooling it down will make it more active, so i just left it at 68F. Will check again on Sunday (take FG readings), and report back. Still have a healthy fluffy krausen on both fermenters.

    American Pale Ale Lake Walk Pale Ale

    I split my batch, 5.5G each, one with Wyeast 1272, and one with US 05 Dry Yeast. Slow fermentation on the 1272 after 5 days, US 05 almost done. Will report on tastings, they are getting entered into a HB Compo.

    American Pale Ale Lake Walk Pale Ale

    I brewed it as per the recipe. 40litre batch, and split the two FV's; One with Wyeast 1272, One with US-05. Should be interesting, and i saw my first Protafloc Cauliflower in my fermenter....hectic! Thanks for a great recipe, was fun to toast the malt, and all the late hop additions made...

    No Yeast, yet beer is fermenting

    Don't let these guys scare you off. If you can't pitch immediately, just seal up the fermenter, pop in an airlock (fill it obviously), pop it somewhere to cool down, and pitch when you can. No-chill is a legitimate method to cool your wort before pitching your yeast, almost every single one of...

    Brewing with Insects?!?!

    Or the bug got him.

    US-05 off flavors.

    The cloves are more than likely ferulic acid formed in your mash. If you are mashing low, or giving it a rest at low temps, you could be forming ferulic acid, which tastes like cloves. This normally happens around 118 - 122F.

    American Pale Ale Lake Walk Pale Ale

    Hi - is this brew a little hazy from the wheat, or does the irish moss sort that out? My last APA had a similar grain bill (no toasted grain), but it just never dropped clear. I guess I could always Gelatine it, but does the Irish Moss get this one nice and clear? Btw - brewing it in 2 days...

    It was a plastic bucket, got kegged tonight. Thing is, its been in the fermenter for over a month, and it still tastes perfect. I have had a lacto infection before, it normally hits after 2 weeks. Anyway, will caustic and blah blah the keg once I am done.... sure its lacto ? looks funky...

    Post your infection

    Here's mine...anyone know what I got? It's sitting on a IPA (no dry hopping), beer underneath is kegged and yummy :) All i did was split a batch into two different buckets, S04 and US-05. this is the US-05, but it did sit on the yeast for a full month, opposed to 10 days for the S04. Image...
