So, who's the first to incorporate one of these into their brewery?

http://store.liqui-cel.com/



Hadn't seen those. I'll bet somebody here jumps on one, for the outlet side of their RO system.


Edit - If you're committed to low O2 water, it would beat the hell out of preboiling.

Dubbel


Along the same lines but bigger - Quad. I've had a couple barrel age quads, one very good, the other excellent.

They gave column strippers that do that. Just like the German breweries.


Thanks, Jeff. I didn't see preboiling as feasible at that stage.

I would guess it means de-oxygenated water.


Yeah, I'd be curious if they preboil at that scale or use some other means to deoxygenate.

I like it a lot. When I first pulled up the map feature, it was out of sync with where I know the locations to be. I uninstalled then reinstalled the app and now it's fine. I really like the map to help me keep up with all the new places when I'm out and about, as well as the discounts per place. Gonna be really handy when I travel/beercation. And the virtual card is nice as well. Kudos AHA !

Silly question about handling of this product. I ordered a 50g packet a little less than 3 weeks ago and it has not been delivered yet, so no immediate concerns. When it does come in, how do I store it, especially after opening the packet? I would guess that there will be handling instructions somewhere on the packaging, just curious as I anxiously await delivery. I know Denny and Jon have some already, what are you doing to store it?


Since it didn't mention any special storage instructions on the package, I put it in a Ziploc and stored it in the kitchen cupboard with my water salts. If it's been 3 weeks you might email them. I emailed at 3 weeks and found out that the order was considered lost. They mailed another package that day and I had it in 2 weeks. Good luck.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: My Tripel tastes too Sweet. Help!

You could rouse the yeast and warm up the fermenter. 

I agree with Denny on the champagne yeast.  The times I've used it, I could taste it.  It is not "neutral" as people claim and will give you some flavor.


Agreed on all counts.

Cascade is just citrusy and floral to me. Even though you only used the CTZ to bitter, it may have carried some of that dankness through to the end. I usually bitter IPLs with Magnum to get a clean bitterness, then add whatever sounds good late. Ekuanot (HBC 366) is the hop formerly known as Equinox - awesome, complex hop.

Ok, after all this talk, I'm brewing a black IPA this fall, been a couple years. Wookey Jack style, I think.

My favorite! Ever try the Patagonia malt they use in that?



Nope, never have. I've heard good things. First time for everything!

My schedule isn't flexible enough for daily testing and I am sure those with family commitments are doubly hosed in that regard.


Yeah, exactly. It's been tough enough for a while (with the kids' activities) to find time to brew as often as I'd like. So for now, using Brewtan and kegging with ascorbic is as close as I'm getting. Regardless, we do seem to be at diminishing returns with arguing about lodo. But I do appreciate people posting their lodo practices and how they feel the final beer is impacted, as points of data. We're all pretty much scratching the surface on this stuff, so we need to remember to be civil.
