Interesting. Maybe Mark can chime in on this. Maybe I'll split my next batch of best bitter and severely over pitch one and underpitch the other.
I have a 68 reissue tobacco sunburst Stratocaster that I got back in '94 or '95. I think its one of the Fender Japan ones, as it didn't cost me very much at the time (~$350 or so)
What if there was a substance that was flavorless, colorless and odorless? You added small amounts to your strike water and at the end of the boil. What if it interrupted oxidizing reactions so even if you had O2 it wouldn't react with the beer and create oxidation? No pre boiling, no copper removal, none of that crap. What if it made the malt and hops pop, enhanced clarity, and delicate beers would remain in near perfect condition for a year or more?
So no one did the mash test? I was handed a lengthy weekend chore list...
Duvel definitely looks more like yours, ie., pale and clear. I wonder if there's some Aromatic or Vienna (or similar) in the Pranqster giving it the more gold hue.
1. I don't have a pump (yet) so that means having to VERY carefully pour pitchers of strike water into the cooler, without over oxygenating somehow.
