    Kveik yeast underattenuating?

    I wasn’t worried about the first one as much cause that made a nice 6.5% beer. However this one was supposed to be 5 something and I’m sitting at 4.3. Attenuation is supposed to be 85% I’m sitting at 62%. And I’ve had my hearing beat on it it’s been high 80s low 90s throughout

    Kveik yeast underattenuating?

    Second batch of a kveik ipa. From my calculations (I use the Brewfather app) the first batch I used imperial kveiking, it was supposed to be about 8% finishing at 1.007, it actually finished at 1.017. Admittedly I stressed the yeast out by doing less nutrient and airating than normal so that’s...

    Post your infection

    Used a vintners best hemp wine base, made half by itself and put the other half into a cider house kit. Both of those had this oily kinda film on top that when I put my wine thief in broke apart. Could this be something from the hemp (the base contains cbd) or something starting??

    Bakers yeast and traditional brews

    I plan on trying a few types of traditions brews (sahti and gotlandsdrenk) which call for use of bread yeast. While reading a very in depth article the author talked about when using bread yeast that there is some lactic acidosis bacteria present in bakers yeast that can cause souring? Has...

    Metallic molasses?

    It’s not strong but you stop noticing it after the second sip, not sure if that will make a difference.
