Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Enartis
« on: July 05, 2017, 09:25:06 AM »
And btw, the Cider I am getting is Mangrove Jack M02. So much more common. Also 500g though. The WS and ES 123 are going to be for Wine and Champagne though.

M02 goes to about 12%, ES 123 goes to about 14%, and WS goes to about 18%. So I could even use all 3. And I want to breed those with another Species, and some Trappist Yeast and Banana Yeast.

Where does one find banana yeast? Is that what you are using to make your Banana beer/champagne grog?

FWIW I switched to the chalkboard tap handles and like them pretty well.

Another good suggestion.

That happen to me as well about 2 years ago.  I taped off the area on the frig and used chalkboard paint.  Problem solved.

Great idea! I got the new fridge converted over and a batch of cider and beer in fermenters. I think I will steal your idea so I don't somehow have to deal with this nonsense again. I know there is whiteboard paint too so I may go that route.

First batch after losing 4 kegged batches to the garage floor...

Going for nice summer pale ale with restrained bitterness. Wanted to use what I had on hand so grain bill is minimal
96% schill pilsner
4% home toasted Quaker oats (trying to get a bit of color and flavor)

~28 ibus Nugget 60 min
2 oz ahtanum 2 min
2 oz ahtanum flameout

1.050
Us05

I would normally be dry hopping instead flameout hops but I want it to be ready asap.

Wow, that would make me cry.

I think the wife was surprised I didn't cry. Seriously. I might be surprised myself.

Yeah pretty bummed and I don't even have anything in the fermenter as I had just kegged a hoppy lager that i didn't even get to touch. My wife is awesome though. She said I should brew tomorrow and Tuesday. My brother in law said we can do a double batch at his house so I should be back up pretty quick. I have a sack of pilsner so may go with a pils or smash so I don't have to go to the lhbs if I do brew tomorrow.

I did get the newer bigger fridge converted over and all my faucets and lines cleaned so that's good. It had been way too long.

Woke up to 4 batches of beer on the garage floor. The magnetic tap list white board fell down perfectly and opened all 4 faucets. At least I have an excuse to convert my other fridge and get rid of the current old one...

Most entertaining and strange threads I have seen since being on here. So weird that I don't know how it could be a joke.

Also, random:

I just went up to UPS to check my PO box, and I ordered a bunch of seeds for different plants a little over a month ago, but I totally forgot that I had ordered Hops seeds. So I have some Hops seeds. I have seeds for a ton of other plants, but I have Hops seeds now too.

Are you starting a farm too?

This is honestly the strangest thread I have ever seen. Monk's idea of compiling a bunch of information on a document or on google drive is a pretty good one. No disrespect meant.

Equipment and Software / Re: Pressurized transfers are amazing
« on: June 28, 2017, 05:16:50 PM »
I have been wanting to move in this direction. I have tried a non pressurized transfer to a purged keg with lid on  but liquid ends up leaking out of the keg disconnect due to lack of pressure to seal the connection.

I wonder if this method would work for Speidels and other similar plastic fermenters. Anyone have any experience with that? I assume at a low pressure it would be fine. Don't mean to go off topic...
You mean a closed transfer?

Sure. I like the sound of that.
