General Homebrew Discussion / Re: doing a Kolsch style

I know the feeling. I brew as often as possible. I try to brew several different styles so I have plenty to choose from.

You can carbonate at the same time as lagering.

Edit : The WY2565 can be lagered cooler than 45°F.

Which yeast are you planning on using?  My assumption is that the 50°F secondary is to perform a type of lagering phase. I think the 46 - 48° will be fine. If you keg your beer I would just keg it then chill it and allow it to lager for awhile to allow the beer to clean up and clarify.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Filthy Mustachio by Mobcraft Brewing
« on: April 13, 2015, 07:27:30 PM »
This is a pilsner brewed with Durian and cashews.
Aroma : Light sulphur notes from the yeast. Very low noble hop aroma. Low tropical fruit (like mango) and very light cashew aromas.

Appearance : Moderate gold color with slight haze. Low white head with little persistence.

Flavor : Similar to the aroma. Light sulphur notes. Very low noble hop flavor. Low tropical fruit (like mango) and very light cashew flavors. Med-low hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: med-light body. Smooth. Moderate carbonation.

Overall, I really like this beer. I would definitely buy this again.

Cheers,
Brandon

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Blonde Or Pale?
« on: April 10, 2015, 10:40:42 AM »
I would suggest dropping the 2 row. It won't add anything unless you do a mini-mash. Then you will get a little fermentables. Also, that is a lot of crystal malt. I would cut it in half, or less. It will end up to too sweet with that much crystal malt. The hops sound good. If you want some hop flavor or aroma you could use some hops late in the boil.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: No signs of fermentation

Again, it's in a carboy. ;)

Thanks for the clarification. Guess I got myself confused. I definitely agree with the others on yeast type, etc.

Don't worry about the hop sediment. It won't effect fermentation. It's very possible the bucket lid doesn't seal completely causing co2 to escape past the lid instead of going through the airlock. The best way to check for fermentation would be to open the lid and check for krausen. If there is krausen then fermentation is occurring. You could also check the specific gravity to see if it has dropped from the OG.

Beer Recipes / Re: APA - what makes it great
« on: April 06, 2015, 04:00:18 PM »
In general, that is the challenge of beer judging. Understanding the balance of the particular style and being able to assign an appropriate score. I agree that APA is difficult. Unfortunately, what a brewery calls their beer doesn't mean it fits that style best.

+1 to the Belgian Dubbel. I brewed the recipe from Brewing Classic Styles and it was quite delicious.

That is an interesting point and makes a lot of sense. It would be an interesting experiment trying that with rye beer. Maybe even do a split batch with the caraway in one half and none in the other.

As far as commercial examples of wee heavy check the guidelines for the strong scotch ale (9E). If you can get Founders Dirty Bastard it is quite delicious. For other styles to try you could check out Old Ale, English Barleywine, Belgian Dubbel, or Belgian Dark Strong.

Now we should be able to get more entries from people who feel the BJCP guidelines are too strict

Make sure it's a blue blender

You must get better efficiency with a blue blender?
