Sorry ken. I was curious what yeast is in question in the op.

Not sure what so4 was but it should be very close to whatever is recommended on black balanced. Oh wait I used brown balanced at 25 srm...

Well I just poured a sample and am maybe getting just the slightest note. I don't brew many lagers. I am getting a pretty crisp finish and maybe just a touch of sulphur that is maybe affecting my perception.

I am glad that I am not alone in beers tasting different at separate tastings. This has been a part of the challenge with my palate.

What yeast? I have had issues with dry yeast slurry apparently because it is deprived of O2...at least that's what I am told.

My volumes, measurements, and lovibind figures should be accurate. I don't account for my boil off with bru'n water which is normally about 11% or just less than a gallon for a one hour boil. I used the black balanced profile.

I may have a pint tonight and pay closer attention to what I am tasting. Like I said it is pretty minor but still noticeable. The recipe is very close to a Schwartzbier for what it's worth.

The OP refers to a cream stout not a cream ale.

This thread was resurrected from four years ago.  The highjacker said only "cream ale".  My more recent response was to him, not to the OP.

Ha! I didn't realize it was a resurrected thread that got redirected...oops

Won't fwh bittering be the same IBU contribution as full boil addition?

Testing I've done shows about a 10% increase in IBU.  But many people, including myself, think it tastes less bitter than a 60 min. addition, even though it measures higher.

Yeah I think Beeralchemy shows it as the same. However OP indicates he's treating it like a 20 min addition. BA is showing using Tinseth changing a 60 min addition to 20 mins is a 40% reduction in IBU, so that pretty dramatic.

I used to calculate FWH as 20 minute additions but now just leave them equal to 60 minute additions. This has helped me to meet my expectations.

General Homebrew Discussion / acrid/ashy character?
« on: March 11, 2016, 02:55:53 PM »
My current black lager is on tap now and has what I would describe as a slightly acrid and ashy character to it. After the palate adjusts it is less noticeable and the character isn't enough to significantly hurt the beer overall. It could be a flavor that I am just overly sensitive to as my palate is kind of inconsistent. I am curious what could be the cause.

I had a mash pH of 5.57. I used baking soda to raise the mash pH
The only roasted malt in here is Carafa III special at 3.8% of the grist
W34/70 yeast fermented in the low 50s
FG was 1.013

Let me know if any additional information would be helpful.

Out of curiosity is there any reason you are using the crystal for bittering?

I did a pale ale a while back and I used Beersmith's bitterness calculation for my hopstand addition. I used 2 oz of high alpha hops for 30 minutes which according to Beersmith extracted considerable IBUs. The beer ended up not being close to bitter enough. From now on, I will only use bitterness figures for hops added during the boil.

Looks like 27 for me however a lot of those are drive-throughs that I spent very little time in on road trips. Missing pretty much the entire east coast...

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Murkiest beer ever
« on: March 10, 2016, 08:02:03 AM »
So what is the most commercially available example of this East Coast IPA 'substyle'? I would be interested to try although the murkiness is definitely not appealing to me. If the goal is to make it murky that is just strange....

Good call on the El Dorado! I would go with the combo. I personally don't care for El Dorado on its own.
