Yeast and Fermentation / stoping yeast from refermenting
« on: June 30, 2011, 10:27:46 AM »
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.

Yeast and Fermentation / belgian sour mix not sour
« on: September 19, 2010, 04:01:20 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?

Do any of you use sankey kegs for your homebrew? If so, how do you clean or fill them? is there a tool that removes the valve w/o destroying it?

My new grain mill came in the other day. the paper states that it is set to a default setting of .039? is this where it should be or do I need to mess with it?
