Yeast and Fermentation / lagers; to rack or not to rack?
« on: March 17, 2012, 09:46:02 PM »
That is one of my questions.  I've got a split batch of Pils. Half is Urquell 2001, half is Bohemian 2206. Both fermented for 20 days at 48*F, then were moved to the laundry room where they could rise to 68* over the past week to clean up diacetyl.  Tomorrow I plan to begin bringing them down to the mid thirties for the tertiary fermentation. What do you think? Should I rack them to clean carboys or leave them in the primary carboys?  How long do folks like to run their cold fermentations? Seems like sometimes folks say they rack to steel. I'm assuming this means generally a corny keg.  If you rack to a corny after the D-rest, do you pressurize the same as if you were carbonating or just to certain degree, or at all?

really cool, thanks for sharing.

I made a honey pale with three pounds of orange blossom honey that definitely had some residual sweetness and significant honey notes.  This did fade with time and in my opinion improved to a very nice beer.  Your gonna need more than a pint of honey with mild character though, otherwise yeah you're just adding sugar/dryness.

I like to use Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo for my House IPA recipe. For the dryhop I use equal proportions of Simcoe and Amarillo. I use the Columbus at 60 and 30min additions.

listen to the bluesman.

The guys in our district water quality department tell me that a charcoal filter will not remove chloramine.

I believe you can use campden tablets but don't take my word for it.  I know there are threads here on the forum where you can find discussion of the topic. If you're confident in your ability to "build" your mineral profile for your water I have no explanation as to why you shouldn't use RO water for your brew, other than it's probably a better method compared to using campden tabs.

I can't brew this weekend >:(
 Really want to give this recipe a try. I'll need a dark option in the lineup this spring as the Schwarz is going fast.

I started a "hop co-op" experiment with some friends at work and family.  We have five plants at the house and the rest are off site. They give the hops a place to grow, I harvest, they get to come over and drink the results. We'll see how it goes. This years crop. 

3 Columbus
2 Centennial

1 Mt. Hood

Whew, we were able to add Saturday night to our reservation at the conference hotel.  Don't know what I was thinking not booking Saturday from the start. Can't wait.

You buy a house after serious consideration as to how the brewery will work in there. 8)

That's the plan! ;)
