    Let's talk about Oxygen.

    So far, I have not oxygenated any of my beers. Seems to work okay. Using US-05 yeast either pitched fresh on new wort, or left in the trub and the next batch poured directly on it. I have even gone so far as to purge the fermenter with C02, thinking it was a good idea because Oxygen is the enemy...

    Oxygenating/aerating tea prior to primary fermentation?

    Hello, community! I am moving from homebrewing beer to making kombucha, and I'm working to see what of my beer making gear I can adapt for kombucha use.

    Fermentation Oxygenation Study- Looking for Input

    I'm planning to do a hands-on review to compare the effect/effectiveness of an "oxygenation stone + oxygen tank" vs. "oxygenation stone + aquarium pump" vs. "none of the above". I plan to make one large batch, split it into 3 identical fermentors, with identical temperature control systems, and...

    Loss of hop aroma before bottling.

    Hey guys, this is my first proper post so I hope it is in the correct area. Please have it moved it if is better suited somewhere else. I recently brewed an imperial IPA (1 gallon) which tasted great when I tried a little before bottling, during the check of the gravity after 2 weeks...
