Welcome back Jim. I have missed your wit and insight.

That barleywine sounds real good. Maybe something for later in the year when it's cold outside, by a fire inside.

Both these look amazing.

Just put a British Golden Ale in the fermenter. Never had one before and thought this would be a nice refreshing drink on hot days still to come.

This yeast of theirs has piqued my interest:



I think it roughly translates to "place where one goes to view a sh**storm"

I do believe that you may wish to look into low-oxygen brewing techniques to achieve the esters that you are seeking:

Wonder what the shipping cost is on 10kg?

All Grain Brewing / Re: What's your favorite type of beer?
« on: July 06, 2017, 01:02:50 PM »
Like others, I would have to say it depends on what I'm in the mood for, what I'm doing, and other things. Just depends.

If I had to choose just one type: Saison.

Kegging and Bottling / What temperature to use?
« on: July 06, 2017, 07:27:39 AM »
Asking for some thoughts and help as to priming sugar at bottling. I usually do ales and use the calculator at Northern Brewer (https://www.northernbrewer.com/priming-sugar-calculator/). Ales are pretty straight-forward and I use the maximum temperature during fermentation at the current temperature. My most recent batch is an Alt that fermented at 66*, then dropped the temperature to 32-33* and held it there for the past month.

It haven't ever had a beer where I kept it at cold temperatures for an extended period of time and am asking whether I should use 66* or 33* as the temperature for calculating the priming sugar addition?

If I use 66*, I would add 2.67 ounces of dextrose to get 2.3 volumes of CO2. Using 33* it comes out to 1.40 ounces. Quite a bit of difference.

I know that increased temperature will expel CO2 from the beer and, to some extent, decreasing temperature will retain CO2 and have some re-enter the beer. But how much CO2 will re-enter the beer when going from 66* to 33*? Since the beer has been at 33* for 1 month, I am thinking of using the 1.40 ounces.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
