Beer Recipes / Re: how much munich in a porter?
« on: October 16, 2013, 04:07:48 PM »
Forgot to bring up yeast. My favorite strain for porter is WY1028.  Any of the mentioned strains are good though, as is WY1450 for a nice malty porter (just ask Denny).

Yep, 1450 is great for that kind of beer.

I dunno, Denny... paid leave sounds like just about the ideal situation to me... ;)

Hope everything works out for you.

It would be ideal if it was permanent!  I'll know by the end of the month if I'm going to go back to work or just call it.  Having not worked in 2 months, it's kinda hard to think about going back.

I think you should have your water tested so you know where you stand.  But your pH would have to be WAY off to have much effect on your efficiency.

The ROT I'm familiar with is to not oxygenate after about 14 hours into fermentation.  Maybe someone here will have some direct experience.

Sounds like an experiment to me.

Which is why it just happens to be in the book Drew and I are doing!  ;)

I'll double check my numbers.  I also plan to brew within the next few days (hey, I'm not working for a few months, why not?) and try it again.

What's up Denny...did you get a work furlough?

I completely forgot to try this calculator during my brewday Sunday...Sorry Sean.

I'll give it a try sooner than later.

Long story, Ron, but I'm on "paid administrative leave".  I may just retire rather than go back.

I forgot to enter my numbers, too, but I've got the info so I'll try it later.

I guess I should have consulted with you guys before I made it, but it is already plugging away in the fermenters.  I guess I will know in a few weeks.

You can add sulfate later.  Even in the glass.

I think you've answered your own questions!  It's more expensive and doesn't work as well, unless you spend more money and time to modify it.  I can't really see any advantage to using it.

I was thinking gypsum for hop forward and cacl for malt fwd

I agree, Jim.  IMO, an IPA screams out for a high sulfate level.

If you want a good intro, try the online version of "The Complete joy of Homebrewing" .  The online version is free.


Ooops, mixed titles!  The link is for How to Brew by John Palmer.  But I don't know how much good it wll do for someone who's mainly interested in cider.

You won't regret it!  Not only is it full of great info, it's really well written and very readable.

While I appreciate the shout out, I'm not certain my approach is applicable to a brand new brewer.

To the OP....I'm not familiar with any of the beverages you mention.  If you could describe them a bit more, maybe we could figure out what you're after and how to help you.

Seems like a lot of work for something that has negligible benefit.

I won't be there, but they will be pouring my beer at the pro am booth.  See if you can guess which one it is.
(I don't think I'm allowed to promote it.)

That's cool and I'll check it out!
OK, I think I can say that I am really stoked about this:  try the Poblano Wit at the Pro Am booth.  It took the gold medal!

BIG congrats, Jeff!
