Yeast and Fermentation / Saf WB-06 Dried Wheat Yeast
« on: April 19, 2010, 08:10:27 AM »
having learned the advantage of not being the first nor the last to attempt a new process (a variant of "he who hesitates is often saved"),I have yet to use my WB 06. for a hefeweiss.Please share your experiences with it and include the mashing and fermenting temps since this seems critical in this style

We were all raised on traditional beers..Dixie,Falstaff,Regal and Lone Star were once favorites here...does anyone have recipes for "Dad's beer" or shopuld I assume that palates were naive then and any cheap cold "beer would do?
BTW,here's a nice bio about Falstaff and it's involvement with many breweries

Equipment and Software / NEW IC in "best day brewing"
« on: December 12, 2009, 08:32:58 AM »
Re: new IC..altho a newbie to this group I am a 13+ yr brewer..instead of a new IC break your present one into 2 or 3 if U can find a 4 way connection (tees are easier to find...think about it ..the first foot of an ic is MUCH better at cooling than the next foot...a "trifecta is AMAZING!!
1)fast coolant flow of a 2)cool liquid and 3)periodic agitation (which is why sticking it in a snow bank will work poorly) is the answer but the quickest is a CFC flowing back to a IC containing pot whose walls have been hosed down-cover the burner
