Kegging and Bottling / Re: priming and CO2 in a keg
« on: April 08, 2014, 06:32:00 AM »
So, if I have a keg that will be sitting around for at least 2-3 weeks prior to having room in the keggerator I will typically prime it with half the amount of sugar that would have been used if I were to bottle it, seal it up with a blast of co2/purge the o2 and let it sit like I would any bottles.

Once it's ready to go under gas I simply set it to serving pressure and it's basically ready to go and fully carbonated.

I'll add acidulated malt, de-bittered black, carafe I, II, III, special B, aromatic

Good luck. Exciting times ahead!

In your original recipe you say to conduct the mash then add the acid malt and conduct another mash for 30 minutes.  Are you draining out the first mash water before adding the acid malt?  What temp should you maintain with the acid malt?

Thanks
no, the first mash was done traditiinally and held, the acid malt was added after the 60 minutes to drop the pH in a means to sour and held, then drained and sparged.

The original recipe produced a good beer but not sour enough, the concern being that more acid malt would have produced a acid type off flavor above a tolersble threshold.

The next iteration im planning in the next week or two will be soured according to the second recipe/lacto process I updated

those look tasty! How is the chokecherry? Sounds interesting, were they added in secondary and how much?

From left to right:

1. Summit/Amarillo/Citra IPA.  Recently tapped, and still cloudy from dry hops, plus flaked oats and wheat malt in the grain bill.

2. Choke cherry Belgian Wit.  Made with the actual fruit.

3. Saison Dupont Clone

Each one is tasty.

Duboman, Euge and DM, thanks for the insight. It's a learning experience which is why I'm doing one gallon batches before I jump to anything larger.

It's a constant learning experience and that's the fun of this great hobby. Experimenting with new things and creating new beers is really the fun of it all. Once you get your process refined everything becomes easier!

Cheers!

Very nice. Dies the juniper up the ante on the forest impression a bit?

Here's my dRye (or Ryerish) session stout. Got better than expected efficiency so it almost wasn't session. Was aiming for 1.038 got 1.041


that looks tasty! Yes, I like the juniper but didn't put enough thought into the hops and just added the berries to my standard common which is all NB. Definitely made a note on that to rethink it.

Congratulations to everyone! The AHA continues to be in good hands!

here's my latest Cali Common brewed this one with some juniper berries and it turned out really nice, next time though I have to switch out the northern brewer hops, just a tad too "forest like" but easily drinkable.

Does BeerSmith allow one to set the OG, input the grains as %'s, and let the software figure out the grain bill weights?
sort of but backwards, you simply enter the grains and then click the percentages button and put whatever percentage you want in, once that's done you can adjust the gravity accordingly.

I saw this too and laughed, if it blows clean off from over active fermentation does it text you and say "get home you've got a mess to clean up"?

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg Cleaning ... and more
« on: April 02, 2014, 06:36:33 AM »
I will usually take apart the keg and toss the parts into it, add hot water and OXY and allow to soak, then rinse. I will then assemble the keg, add hot water and OXY again and run through the taps and lines, then repeat the process with Star San to sanitize prior to racking the beer for set up. I'll usually take a brush to the dip tube as well.

I'm also sure to use keg lube on all the gaskets during assembly and obviously check for any leaks prior to racking and set up.

I've used 3944 many times. Makes a nice wit.
+1, got one finishing up fermentation now and it's a great yeast!
