I just take out the center valve. a # 12 rubber stoper with an airlock seals it well.

Yeast and Fermentation / stoping yeast from refermenting
« on: June 30, 2011, 05:27:46 PM »
I am wanting to ad pomogranite juice to a wheat ale without starting a referment. I am wanting the juice sugar and flavor ( not me but a friend) to stay in the beer. at my house I can keep it cold but when I give it out I dont want a referment to start. How can I stop the yeast from starting up again? It is california ale # wlp001 if that helps. I do not have ability to filter. Thanks to all.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Using Rice in a mash

Minute rice, good idea. not sure why I didn't think of that.

maybe get a smaller element. I use a 3500W for doing my 10 gallon batches and it is just about perfect. a nice hard boil but the wort, for the most part, stays in the kettel.

How flat? you have checked all of your connections and valves for being properly connected I assume. How old is your guage?

Did you try it? what did you end up doing? have you tasted it yet? I am quite curious and I may want to try this as well.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WL American Ale Blend WL060

I have used it a few times with good ( well at least not bad ) results. Nothing special to make me remember it a lot for the good or bad. The man running my LHBS advised me to not re-use it more than a few times, because the " blend " will change a little with each time. maybe for the better, but maybe not.

Yeast and Fermentation / belgian sour mix not sour
« on: September 19, 2010, 11:01:20 PM »
I made the all grain option of the Berliner Weisse from brewing classic styles styles almost 7 months ago. my LHBS did not have just lactobacillus, they had the White Labs #655 Belgian sour mix 1. I pitched my yeast, US-05, and the sour mix at the same time and fermented at about 70, and left it on the primary until the FG was reached. Over 6 monthe later, there is NO sour flavors. I can taste the brett but not he lacto and it tastes more like apple juice than anything else and not what I was trying to make for my first sour beer. Could the US-05 frement out the sugars before the sour mix got started? I did not make a starter for the WLP655. what else would cause this lack of sour?  I am going to make a Flanders Red and again the only thing my LHBS has is the WLP655. What should I do that I did not the first time, use only the sour mix and no yeast? 

Or just brew a beer, add hops and ferment it, then name the style.......
+1 just brew it and enjoy

Is there a thread comparing the Johnson analog and digital controllers? Or do you have an opinion preferring one over the other?
I have used the analog for a few years now and it still work like the day I got it. I dont have the fancy digital one but it most likley works well also. the analog is quite precise and easey to use.
