Got it. For some reason, I thought it was a pretty normal practice for a lot of people. Live and learn.

Are you tasting vodka, or just a perceptible increase in alcohol presence? I thought the main idea using vodka for tinctures was that it was generally flavor neutral? 6oz in 5 gallons would be obvious with a rum, or bourbon, or tequila. I don't have an answer for you Goschman, just kind of curious myself as to the threshold

To be honest it is a pretty bold beer with a lot going on. Maybe a bit too complex. I shouldn't say it tastes like vodka but I get a boozy perception for it being a 6.7% saision. It also has a pretty big mouthfeel for finishing at 1.003. Could be from the rye?

55% Pilsner
27% Vienna
18% Rye

bitter with magnum
2 oz sorachi ace @ 2 minutes remaining

belle saison

OG 1.052
FG 1.003

6 oz vodka added to zest of three lemons and 21g freshly chopped basil

Someone will. I assume the answer is if you can taste it you added too much. Just curious about how much most use. First time using this method and I guess I didn't fully think it through.

For those of you that have made vodka flavoring extracts, how much vodka did you use? I made an extract with lemon zest and fresh basil. The vodka seems to be noticeable in the final product. If my calculations are correct, the vodka boosted the alcohol by 0.3%. It was a total of 6 oz added to a 5 gallon batch. I used more than planned due to having to cover a large volume of basil. I didn't really even consider it being an issue.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: carbing keg over 3 days
« on: August 11, 2017, 10:40:19 AM »
Before I started spunding, I'd quick carb @ 30 psi/48 hrs/38F-ish for most beers, then reduce to serving pressure. Generally came out right.

Any guess for 72 hours?

Kegging and Bottling / carbing keg over 3 days
« on: August 11, 2017, 08:37:12 AM »
I normally carb an already cold keg (32F) over about 24 hours at 30 psi and it does the trick for me. I kegged a beer last night but will be gone until Sunday. Any ideas on what pressure I should keep it at to get it carbed by Sunday afternoon/evening? I have it set at 20 psi as a guess.

As usual tasted much better going into the keg at 1.003. Bold flavor going on as planned and hopeful I didn't overdo it with the lemon basil extract.

I have never really learned the whole patience thing related to brewing and tend to worry prematurely.
