Ingredients / Hiding Diacetyl via Dry Hopping
« on: September 23, 2010, 11:41:53 PM »
I have an american premium lager that ended up with a stronger than I care for diacetyl off-flavor.  Anyone ever try masking diacetyl with a late addition dry hopping in the keg?  I've got amarillo, cascade, chinook, tettnang, or willamette to choose from - any recommendations?

Equipment and Software / RTD Signal Conditioner
« on: July 21, 2010, 09:24:57 PM »
I was wondering if anyone had some first hand experience with a RTD signal conditioner that they could recommend.  I am looking at doing some equipment automation utilizing a PLC and would like to land the RTD on a 4-20mA analog input rather than buy a separate RTD input card.

I can find plenty of signal conditioners to choose from but am looking for something more in the typical homebrewer's price range ;) ,  similar to the pricing of the automation gear that can be found at

General Homebrew Discussion / Hops Overshooting Trellis Options
« on: July 09, 2010, 07:22:08 PM »
A few of my 2nd years hops have already grown 8" to 12" taller than my trellis system (14') and I am looking for some ideas on what to do.  If I do nothing is their continued upward growth wasting nutrients that could be going into the other bines or cone production?  Is it possible to have them grow downward, if so does it require daily training?

Any ideas or insight would be appreciated.
