All Grain Brewing / Re: Gose
« on: February 08, 2016, 08:00:18 PM »
The better ones take some looking to find the salt, coriander too for that matter.
True but still difficult. This beer has been entered in 6 different comps and judges have commented at both spectrums, same exact recipe. High score of 38 low score of 24, even at the avg score same spectrum of taste descriptions.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Gose

I brew a hibiscus Gose and love it, if you search for hibiscus gose in the recipe thread you'll see it. Personally I like Gose a lot, especially in the summer, I find them very refreshing.

As far as brewing its pretty straightforward and kettle souring is easy. Balancing the salt is the most difficult as everyone perceives it differently. I've had comments all over the board from too much salt to hardly noticed and I always use the same amount;)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP565 Belgian Saison I question

It may drop a couple more points but you will also get secondary fermentation from the oranges, I would rack to a secondary vessel onto the oranges and let it finish fermenting out, not even necessary to hold temp, just let it free rise and finish

Edit, Jon chimed in before me and I'd concur with him as well, really either way IMO

I too don't really see this working well, especially for a comp where you are trying to submit your best product. If you elect to proceed I would try to do one now and see if it even works, you don't want to submit flat beer

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Crazy fermenter pic

I agree, looks like star San or left over froth from when you filled the vessel and it stuck there

Kegging and Bottling / Re: urgent puzzled newbie kegger question
« on: January 30, 2016, 09:07:30 AM »
Because it beats the hell out of sanitizing and filling 50 bottles. Just my opinion though.  ;)
+1
I'll also add that there is a possibility that your poppit is not properly seated or plugged up preventing the gas from flowing properly, it happens sometimes

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bulk lagering and bottle lagering
« on: January 29, 2016, 06:20:50 PM »
In short and IME having lagered in keg, bulk and bottles I personally have noticed any discernable difference. The only thing is if you elect to bottle you will need to begin lagering after they fully carbonate.

Also, for a comp, you would want the beer to be nice and clear, if your beers aren't poured well and sediment in the bottle clouds up the pour you might lose points-maybe an actual judge could chime in on that?

Its not so bad if it happens when you start to pull a pint but really sucks when the pint is close to full and then you get that big blast, screws up the pour AND gives you a bath!

Awesome looking beer and the perspective seems to make you an exceptionally tall individual!

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Does Gelatin Clearing work without adding CO2
« on: January 26, 2016, 04:37:43 PM »
I crash in keg to avoid suck back nowadays , then add gelatin. I don't have any trouble with sediment or floaties. I lose most of the first pint to the sediment, but it's crystal clear and floatie-free after.
+1, works really well

Equipment and Software / Re: Thermowells and temp probes
« on: January 26, 2016, 11:56:19 AM »
I put the sensor underneath an old sponge that I duct tape to the side of my bucket, so that the probe is sandwiched between the sponge and the side of the bucket.

Yep! That's what I do. Took a chunk of foam, cut a groove big enough to fit the probe, and taped it to my conical. I just insert the probe when its time to ferment. I used the aluminum tape and the foam stays put, even when cleaning.
+1, exactly the same set up with an STC-1000, works great. I don't use tape though, I just use a bungee cord wrapped around bucket to hold the foam block in place

Never used 23 and thought I'd give it a try, using it on the hoppy lager half of the batch, we'll see....

Tightened up the crush today and hit ~70% efficiency, crystal clear wort-preboil sample:)
