Ingredients / New Hop Oil Composition Comparison Chart
« on: March 29, 2017, 04:56:16 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I thought it would be helpful to create a heat map view of the composition of hop oil for the different varieties of hops to better spot differences.  Most of what I have seen are stacked bar graphs or tables which while useful make it hard to spot differences or compare.  So I grabbed some YCH hop data available from http://scottjanish.com/2014-hop-harvest-data/ and created a heat map in the enclosed view.  I find it helpful.  I hope it helps others.

Cheers!

General Homebrew Discussion / HomebrewCon - Pharmacist Networking
« on: March 19, 2017, 05:14:33 PM »
Hello,

Newbie to brewing.  About six months into it.  All grain, BIAB now :). Anyways, I am a pharmacist and thoroughly enjoying using some of those skills towards this hobby!  Curious, if other pharmacists are going to HomebrewCon?  Could be super fun to connect.  I am looking forward to meeting all kinds of folks :).   Just thought it would be fun to connect with my kin  ;)

Let me know if interested.

Cheers,
Jim S.

Just got done making a beer advent calender for a good friend.  Of course, I had to make one for myself to ensure the quality 8) Salute!

Need a chart to be to use dry yeast in a pinch.  Could not find a quick chart so I made one based on comments on equivalency from various places.  Hope it helps someone else.  Cheers!

Yeast and Fermentation / Here It Is, the Genetic Family Tree of Beer
« on: September 10, 2016, 01:02:59 PM »
"The genetics research was led by Kevin Verstrepen, a yeast biologist at the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology and the University of Leuven, in Belgium. Verstrepen and his colleagues genetically sequenced more than 150 yeasts for the project. Most are brewers yeasts, with some wine, sake, bread, and biofuel-making yeasts thrown in to boot. Verstrepen notes that today's family tree focuses heavily on the yeast behind ales, and that his team is currently working on the genetic linage of the yeasts behind crisper, lighter lagers." - By William Herkewitz, Sep 8, 2016
