Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Secondary yes or no

I never had a glass of beer with out some hop particles floating around in it.

You say that like it's a bad thing....;)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Secondary yes or no

Yes, you can DH in the keg, but that's messy.

I find it is the least messy and produces the best results.

Same here.  Dry hops go into a bag.  Easy to put in the keg, easy to remove...not messy at all.  And a far fresher hop aroma than dry hopping in a secondary.

I almost never use a secondary any more.  If you're an AHA member you can access the Ask the Experts area of the website and see what John Palmer has to say about it (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/lets-brew/ask-the-experts/john-palmer?cid=wr6B8CL9lj0q%2bJT6ImywRQ%3d%3d&redirect=http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/lets-brew/ask-the-experts/john-palmer), but here's an excerpt...

"I, and Jamil and White Labs and Wyeast Labs, do not recommend racking to a secondary fermenter for ANY ale, except when conducting an actual second fermentation, such as adding fruit or souring. Racking to prevent autolysis is not necessary, and therefore the risk of oxidation is completely avoidable. Even lagers do not require racking to a second fermenter before lagering."

Having the good fortune to have tried a few of Keith's beers, I can say that whatever method he's using works!  They were bright and clear as well as absolutely delicious!

Gonna be hard to get a better endorsement than that!  ;D

I'll be waiting for the check.....;)

Beer Recipes / Re: Genesee Cream Ale Clone
« on: December 21, 2011, 12:47:59 PM »
Cream ale can be brewed with either ale or lager yeast.  Having brewed this recipe, as well as a lot of Skotrat's other recipes, my advice is to do it exactly as he writes it.

I've been so busy working that I haven/t had time to start any yeast and all my slurries are used up.  Next brew day looks like 1/6 so I'm cranking up some 1728 to make a Wee Shroomy to take to NHC in June.

Zymurgy / Re: Zymurgy online?!?!

While I won't go into the Flash or not issues, I did try some of the things that you said didn't work...like the buttons at the top.  everything worked as it should.  I gather you're a tech savvy person, so maybe you can figure out why it didn't work for you.  But I can tell you that it isn't a problem with the overall format.

Ingredients / Re: Best Pils Malt Questions
« on: December 21, 2011, 09:41:05 AM »
I switched to Best pils (and Munich) a few years back after having been a big fan of Durst and before that Weyermann.  I find the Best malts easy to use and more flavorful (IMO) that either of the others.  Anything else you'd like to know?

If you have a water report to work from and you can get the stuff you need to adjust, it couldn't hurt.  If not, don't sweat it.
