Just for my own clarification, Festbier and Marzen are different styles right?


Yep, two different styles. Separate flavor profiles, color, and BJCP subcategories.

I'll probably forgo the carafa and just use straight Sinimar, still trying to figure out how to calculate how much.


I used sinamar in my last 2 dunkels. I found a reference to .25oz/7 g (by weight) per 5 gallons increasing color by 1 SRM. Seems pretty accurate to me.

Thanks, when are you adding the Sinimar?


I add at end of boil (a minute or two prior), to get uniform mixing.

The sky was clear. The eclipse was fantastic. The traffic was a nightmare.

All in all it was great. Bring on 2024!


And Indy will be a totality city for that one. Pretty excited. A scientist said today that the duration of 'blackout' here will be over 4 minutes. Can't wait!

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Question About Chilling
« on: August 20, 2017, 04:07:45 PM »
I listened to Denny Experimental Brew podcast and he recommends the Hydra wort chiller (see link below). As a former Florida resident, I wished I had this product. I bought this last winter and it's definitely worth it. Here in Iowa, it get to 90 degrees. But, now I can get my wort down to 60 degrees in 12-15 minutes.
The procedure is use this wort chiller to get the wort down to the temperature of the hose water. Then, using the immersion pump (see link below) submerged in ice water, pump thru the chiller to get down to temp.  Jiust me 2 cents worth.

I use a 1/4 hp sump pump for chilling, too. Really glad I made the purchase. Nice to be able to get lager wort quickly down to the mid 40s, even in mid-summer.

Edit for spelling.

Yeah,  I think it drops pretty easily compared to most saison strains.
