All Grain Brewing / Re: Examining Oxygen Ingress: Should I Pre-boil?

So fast, that if you are not ready, one could easily miss the temps if not paying attention.


I'm with you, Rob -  it chills to strike temp QUICKLY. The first time or two, I reheated the water back up to strike temp because I didn't want a mash temp 10F below target. Now I start closing the faucet as I get close to strike, so I don't overshoot again.

Joe, my foam has been great since going with a gentle boil. Love it


Yep, big time. Better beer overall IMO.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Final Gravity?

You know you're at FG when you get 2 or 3 identical hydrometer readings, each a day or two apart. Airlock activity can't be trusted to verify that you're at FG, or you run the risk of bottle bombs. Make the hydrometer your friend. Good luck!

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast Fermentation Temp

To me, the pitch temp is more critical than the remainder of ferment.  Be sure to measure it.  For a few years, I chilled to 80ish and assumed an overnight stay in the fridge set at my fermentation temps would lower it but NOT SO! 

Interesting to see confirmation high temp pitching affecting head retention, never seen that before but that is exactly my experience as well.  OMG the headache bombs I made on my first few belgians!


Agreed with all of this. As for foam, fusels are often a negative
for foam quality, and of course a positive for nasty headaches. Been there.

   Plain old red beers, but only with my infamous homebrewed, high octane tomato juice, and only with lagers. Sadly I'm out of the stuff and have been for a while, gonna have to get my poop in a group and build some more soon. The stuff goes down very well, I can go through a quart of juice and 3 or 4 beers in no time at all, especially during a good football game. On second thought, maybe I should hold off on making more juice ;).
   Jon, you don't ever partake of a lime wedge with a beer?



Lime wedge with tacos, yeah. Beer, not so much.   :)

I generally prefer my beer unadulterated


Same here. I like an occasional margarita at a Mexican place, and definitely good Scotch and good bourbon on occasion. But I like beer to be beer. Each his own.
