The episode of Experimental Brewing coming out on Wed. is about brewday disasters.  Some great stories!
Right on! You guys must have tried my beer.

Did he include the International Maltiness Factor in the upgrade?

I believe he's asking what a poster presentation is in general

Isn't this about as lucrative as counterfeiting pennies out of real copper?

Imagine the disappointment when people get used to the fake beer and then stumble in to the real stuff later

If it were up to me to classify yeast, it wiuld be Ale, Lager, Hybrid, Belgian, and Wild

I think Belgian yeasts play by different rules, not just than other ales or lagers, but sometimes different than other Belgians

And maybe not...
Pitching 1 smack pack, active starters, to any ale I've done so far from 1.050 to 1.110, with numerous yeasts from American to English, I don't find any beer "estery"

One constant I find in home brewing. We read things and therefore they are so, even though we can't make it happen at home.

By the way I cracked one of those beers. Hasn't changed as far as I can tell. Of course mine hasn't bounced up and down the California coast on its way to Pasadena lol

Growth of a home brewer
Day 1: Does the yeast go in before or after the boil?
Day 2: What is the best lab to get my pre and post fermentation FAN analyzed?
Day 3: Wish I had time to brew

Another question is what low growth is doing to residual FAN numbers, and therefore final pH of your beer, and therefore feed and safety zone for contamination to reproduce.

Residual FAN is another reason to be a "fan" of pitching active starters to low FAN euro malts, rather than pitching high cell counts to high DP, high FAN American malts.

I thought there was a rule against the P word... talking about FB is dangerously close to that line, isn't it?

BTW I am 18 months no news, and about 12 months no FB. The world is exponentially better
