Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast taste difference
« on: July 08, 2014, 03:55:54 PM »
This is a great write up from Kal @ the electric brewery comparing US-05 & 1056.

This might help!

Unlike Kal, I can tell the difference.

I can too...and MUCH prefer what 1056 delivers.

+2.  I'll use S-05 occasionally for short notice brewing, but I can tell the difference.  To me S-05 is slightly more powdery/less flocculant and slightly fruitier than 1056. Not a lot but distinguishable.

EDIT - Having said all that, S-05 makes a perfectly good beer. I just prefer 1056.

+3, US-05 is my backup yeast

I use these:

They are on wheels, they're cheap, and they hold an entire 50# sack of malt.

These are what I use too and love them. Sealed, mobile and as mentioned hold an entire sack of grain.

I'd get a taster of the Sriracha Pilsner at a beer fest. Just sayin'...
I had a Sriracha stout a few months ago that was pretty good.

Thanks, guys.  I think I'll start mid-high range and see what happens.  Just ordered the Ranco from Amazon.

I doubt you'll regret it Denny.  I have a dual-stage Ranco on my fermentation freezer and use a reptile warming bulb for the winter months when I need it warmer. Has worked great for a couple years now. Have fun!

Yeah, that just seems excessive. Can you double check with your supplier?

The Pub / Re: Tequila

Aside from bourbon I'm not much of a hard liquor fan. But I do sometimes like tequila. And the only mixed drink I like is margarita, but only with fresh squeezed limes. Not the fake stuff.

One thing I do every year is take some fresh jalapeños from my garden and soak them in a pint of tequila. wait about 72 hours and then make margaritas from that jalapeños soak tequila. Very nice.   

That there sounds damn good Major. We've got 19 varieties of peppers in the garden this year. Thanks for the idea!

I've heard some folks have seen their scores posted on the comp website. I have not. I'm wondering if I'm just still being too impatient or my entries never made it. has anyone else seen their scores posted?
I saw my scores at one point and then they were removed... I think the times they were posted were 'accidental'.
So, we should expect to see them posted at some point?

Looks like a 14 cf. I'm really happy with mine. The extra space comes in very handy.

I`m using NHC as a springboard back into the hobby after an unanticipated 2yr hiatus. Looking forward to the event, a first for me.

Just kegged a Motueka Pale last night that seems very promising.  Just something I threw together with ingredients on hand. 50/50 Crisp MO/Weyermann Pils, Summit bitter & Motueka late. Nice bright yellow gold color, Fresh lemongrass and spice hop aroma and flavor. Medium-light body that comes in around 5.8%.

I like a nice chèvre but I'm really more of a Ford guy.

Thanks guys, I'm feeling pretty good about it and looking at it as the beginning of a journey rather than a final exam.

I'll be there, flying solo this year. Would be great to put some faces to the avatars.
