Guess I'll have to work harder to dig up my recipe that tastes like it without low oxygen brewing.  I mist have gotten lucky I guess.

Enter snarky response..... Come on man.

Sorry, really didn't intend that.  It was a sincere comment.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Reusing 34/70 dry lager yeast
« on: August 13, 2017, 11:55:08 AM »
I read on one of the dry yeast mfrs sites that they recommend it not be reused.

Here it is: http://www.fermentis.com/brewing/homebrewing/frequently-asked-questions/

Can I re-use the yeast?
Due to the risks of infection and the inability to check yeast cell counts of yeast slurries it is not recommended as the risk of failure is increased and outweighs the cost of new yeast.

which are exactly the same concerns with reusing any yeast, liquid or dry.  Dry yeast is not more prone to those issues than liquid, yet we reuse liquid yeast all the time.

I even read lager yeast shouldn't be reused because it absorbs DMS in the fermentation D rest so when reused could increase the chance of DMS in the new brew. If it's on the internet it has to be true right?  (I read '6 myths' on AHA by Denny last night.)

All Grain Brewing / Re: Water Quality
« on: August 12, 2017, 01:44:42 PM »
Question- why do grocery stores offer RO water rather than just carbon filtered?  What else are people using this water for?  If I'm not mistaken, its not a particularly good idea to drink RO water straight because it strips minerals from our bodies.

You are indeed mistaken.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: cleaning water?
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:14:29 AM »
I have always cleaned my pots etc. with regular tap water from the faucet. Recently I have been thinking that maybe that isn't a good idea. We take great care with our brewing water to take out the chlorine and  make it good for brewing. I was wondering how many of you just use the local city water for cleaning and how many do something to the cleaning water?   
 this would include boil pots, kegs, bottles etc.

I can't thi8nk of any reason not to use it.

"I can get a really nice local honey with  really nice depth of flavor." 

Not surprising, since Missoula is surrounded by fields of knapweed, a noxious weed that makes for awesome honey.   ;D

Amazing how that works, huh?  Some of the best honey I've ever tasted is poison oak honey.

Not sure of the brand of the braid.  The biggest I have right now is time and space.  We're adding on to our house and it 's all a mess.  Someday I'll get back to brewing.

Thanks!

I hear ya....

Unfortunately, I use a braid and still have trouble.  I know it's something or other I'm doing but I just haven't found it yet.  It seems I don't brew any one recipe often enough to do much troubleshooting.

My next challenge is trying to dial in my new 3 roller mill.  My efficiency took a big hit on the first batch.  But again, I haven't had time to brew for 3 months so I'll start that over again once things slow down. 

Back on the tracks...  Denny's recipe is a great one to start with.  One of my favs.

Paul

Sorry to hear that, Paul.  Have you tried the Lasco braid I use?  As to the mill, my advice is to crush til you're scared!

I think you're good.

Man, that sounds like an awesome trip.  Do you have any pictures from Tübinger?

Yeah....I'll try to get them posted then post a link. And i was an awesome trip....proof once again of the community of homebrewers.

First wort hop...you add them to the kettle as you run off the mash and leave them in through the boil.

I have a rye IPA recipe that's been pretty well received, but it's more dank than citrus.  I'd be happy to post it if you'd like to see it.

Yeah I'd be curious to see what other rye ipas look like!

Here it is....http://wiki.homebrewersassociation.org/DCRyeIPA
