Nugget can be subbed for Columbus pretty well.


Yep. Bitter with Nugget and add 2 Cascade:1 Mosaic late and dry - would be tasty.

Fusels will usually age out into esters.
Yep, and can be worth the wait. Bottle it up and forget about it for 6 mos.

Fussels at 71° is a bit odd.


Yeah, I haven't gotten fusels from any saison strain at that temp range.

Another use for this Korean sauce - fusion Korean/Mexican tacos (West coast taco truck-style). I charcoal grilled some thin sliced, brined pork loin today, then diced and tossed with the sauce. Added to corn tortillas, with kimchee, sesame seeds, chopped onion, cilantro, and lime wedges. May sound weird but it works big time. Killer tacos.
Sounds amazing, I'll have to try something like that.

Yeah, it really works, Pete. Obviously Mexican and many Asian cuisines share spicy sauces, cilantro, and lime flavors. Pretty complimentary flavors.
I can't stop thinking about these tacos. I want to make them with scallin pancakes instead of tortillas.


Mmmm, sounds great. That would have to be tasty.

Missed the cocoa nibs /coconut thing - I'd go SHV as well. 39 IBU on a 1.072 beer isn't especially bitter at all.  Provided there aren't noticeable late hop additions, SHV.

If it tastes more like a milk stout(and I assume it does), enter it as a milk stout. American stouts shouldn't have that level of residual sweetness, and often have much higher IBU. It'll score better as a milk stout.

Ingredients / Re: Low calcium levels and diacetyl
« on: August 06, 2017, 03:15:47 PM »
It's just some yeast strains.  More often the Scottish and Irish Ale strains. It only happens about once every 8-10 batches.  I keep everything pretty clean, but I think I'll just go ahead and thoroughly clean everything now - kegs, lines, fermenters etc.  just to rule out any contamination. 



I've never had that issue with the Scottish strain even at 58-59F, but the Irish strain is known to sometimes have low level diacetyl IIRC. No big surprise there.

If it was fermenting at 62 degrees, then every batch I ferment would have diacetyl.


Yeah, same here for most ales. I'd be curious to hear what strains OP typically uses.

Have not tried any mobile apps. I use bs2 on my laptop and have it by my side every brew day. No complaints except it's not mobile . I know this doesn't answer your question, but it's how I roll. Take my laptop to work or wherever and I can open up the app and play around with whatever is next on the docket

Jon, it's fantastic!

Awesome, JT!  Glad you like it. I'm addicted to those flavors.   :)

Got a saison into the fermenter today. WY 3726, 30 IBU's, 64% Weyermann Barke Pils, 15% Weyermann Pale, 7% wheat malt, 7% German light Munich, 7% sugar.


Sounds good!
