Ingredients / Re: Aromatic vs Melanoidin Malt
« on: January 10, 2016, 06:02:29 PM »
So, a question, I've got an Oct Fest and. Pilsner that I really like but they're both missing a bit of something. Opinions on adding one or the other to either of these beers. Your all descriptions might give me what I'm looking for, thoughts?

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bottle Carbonation: time vs CO2 Volume
« on: January 10, 2016, 11:18:42 AM »
With an ale yeast you will stop any further carbonation from occurring. You're dealing with multiple bottles, while one is a good sample others may not quite be there yet after 8 days, I'd wait another week at least

Looks kind of cool but have to ask: did you consult with the BJCP regarding any potential copyright issues or other legalities prior to creating this app?
I'm not implying you did anything wrong but if you didn't you might want to:)

That was my thought as well, especially the concern about getting scalded as there would be no way to regulate the temp

If you are kettle souring, once your wort reaches the desired pH or sourness you then proceed to the traditional boiling of the wort so dms production isn't an issue

After kettle souring when you get to your desired pH simply continue your process with a traditional boil, add your hops as scheduled and finish your wort as normal. Easy peasy:)

Kegging and Bottling / Re: 9% ABV, 0% carbonation
« on: December 25, 2015, 03:01:27 PM »
So what exactly is going on during this time period to the beer while it is sitting uncarbonated in the bottle with all that original oxygen in the headspace?  Aren't these beers slightly being oxidized during this process of extended carbonation times?  I understand that yeast are good O2 scavengers but I am not fully convinced.

Ever since I switched to closed transfers from primary into a keg (and stopped bottling years ago) I have noticed a  major improvement in shelf life of my brews.
Not much in the first few days but gradually co2 production begins and if you use o2 caps there really is no issue with extended conditioning time in a bottle. This of course also assumes you use dark bottles and keep them in a dark, warm space until the ufully carbonate. The amount if headspace is really quite small with proper fill level
