I'm assuming the experiment will be performed with homebrew?

If the doses don't skunk the beer- which it may very well do, then perhaps a new method for beer pasteurization could be developed.

The old govt test revealed quality issues with some of the beer after exposure to an atomic blast and all its varied wavelengths. Far more Grays than any old tube is gonna give.

For really nice high dosage how about running the beer through the scanner?

Actually it isn't difficult to maintain a keg without keeping it hooked all the time.

Carb tablets, dry malt, sugar cubes or table sugar. A dry funnel is handy for the loose stuff.

More important is how it tastes. Smells during fermentation aren't very indicative of a final product usually.

I haven't seen foam yet with my ciders but haven't ever used "fresh" apple juice as it is unavailable. Pectin and particulate may be a source of krausen WAG.

I got a huge cider krausen this time that refused to drop until the fermenter was cold-crashed. The yeast was US-05. I'll rack tomorrow most likely and take it as a good sign..

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Sam follows Guinness and goes nitro

I'm drinking the Guinness IPA right now.  :P

Nitro isn't some sort of silver bullet for any beer. The marketeers have been at it again.

I wish I had read this thread before buying. Tastes like unbalanced homebrew: too roastily bitter compounded by hop bitterness. The nitro is actually a detriment because this IPA probably would taste better with co2. And it goes flat almost immediately which is like tripping a thief on the run.

So I expect the Samuel Adams "Nitros" will be as equally bad.

Judging by the lacing that was about 5 sips. Not bad. ;D

Usually us-05 or Windsor. Windsor leaves it a bit sweeter. I like bottled cider on the dry side but have been known to back-sweeten in the keg if it's being chilled. Otherwise I don't mess too much with my ciders.

I always have believed that in part this dark layer is hop isomer residue and well worth getting rid of if one re-pitches.

Try subbing low fat cottage cheese for the ricotta.

I say if you are getting results you like then carry on.

Old thread, old faces. makes me feel old.
Makes me sad. A lot of these guys don't post here anymore...

Homebrewers fall by the wayside. Raise one for them and yourselves!
