    I'm doing everything right (right?)...But still can't get rid of yeast off-flavors.

    I've taken all the steps. Tried all the techniques. Bought all the equipment... But I still get a slight (subtle, but noticeable), off-flavor from my yeast in pale/light beers. I've been brewing all-grain for years and have made some great beers (including some medal winners) - but the issue...

    Coconut Blonde Help

    I am looking to create a coconut blonde but can't get my hands on the hops I want. My initial thought was to pair some Sabro with 16 oz of coconut in the secondary but none of my local homebrew shops carry it, so I decided to use some hops I already have on hand. I have Huell Melon, Lemondrop...

    Fermenting Blonde ale at 59F with Safale us-05

    Hello everyone, I have a blond ale in a carboy fermenting with US-05. Set in freezer 1 day and a half ago at 59F, just raised the temp up one more degree to 60F as it wasn't bubbling much and there where just a few hints of krausen. Plan was to ferment low first week then blow it up to 68F on...

    Off-Flavors, Super Dry Finish / Aftertaste

    I brewed the Lefse Blonde extract kit from Northern Brewer. In primary for about a week, secondary for two weeks, in bottles for two weeks so far. I'm getting a very dry (too dry) finish and some off-flavors I can't put my finger on. Any thoughts as to where I went wrong on this one? Not...

    Compensate or pull through?

    I recently brewed my second ever all-grain recipe. My first all-grain brew was a borderline-disaster, even though the resulting beer ended up quite drinkable. I felt a lot more confident and made less errors for my second attempt - progress :) I read Palmers “How to Brew” (an excellent book)...
