I have heard of people using melanoidin malt to emulate a decoction mash...anyone tried this with any luck?

You have to start by assuming that there's a flavor addition from decoction.  I'm not sure I can say that.

I've done it with an extended boil, but you can achieve the same thing in kess time by taking a gal. of first runnings and boiling it down to less than a pint, then adding it back to the kettle.  AFAIAC, the absolute, without a doubt best homebrew Scotch ale recipe is Skotrat's Traquair House clone recipe.  You can find it here, with the addition of chanterelle mushrooms.  Leave those out and you've got a killer Scotch ale.

i am thinking that just boiling the first runnings longer may produce the same effect but have not experimented yet.

I can pretty much guarantee you that it's not the same.  Try both and see for yourself.

Questions about the forum? / Go Down

The AHA just got a new IT crew, they'll be taking a look at it. We suspect it's a theme thing because if people move out of the default theme, the problems go away. (I think)

We've asked them to focus on this, so changes soon.


Drew,

Where do we change our theme?  I looked everywhere through the profile settings and couldn't find anyplace to change it.

At this point, only administrators can change their theme.  The IT people are looking at it as a last ditch solution for everybody.  The good news is that the new IT director has experience in the language the forum is programmed in.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: That German lager flavor
« on: June 29, 2012, 01:46:46 PM »
that was my thought too, so then how much different would you expect it from just doing an extended boil with part of the runnings.  i suspect there would be still some difference do to possible flavors present in the grain that may not be in the wort but just guessing that is minimal

Boiling down the runnings gives you a sweeter flavor than what you (supposedly) get from decoction.  Decoction (supposedly) increases the malt flavor, which is not necessarily sweet.

If you really want to stick with American yeasts, Pacman is pretty flocculant.

Yeah, but not enough to finish a beer in a week.  When we made the Rye IPA at Rogue, we gave it 2 weeks to ferment (admittedly a higher OG) and cold crashed for a week to drop it.

All Grain Brewing / Re: melanoidin in an amber?
« on: June 29, 2012, 09:14:45 AM »
Is an amber with Munich/melanoidin character not going to wind up being closer to an alt?

Not to me, although Alaskan Brewing might disagree.  They say their amber is an alt.  The BJCP reception at NHC this year focused on alts.  After tasting Alaskan amber next to Zum Uerige, I'm more convinced than ever that it's a different animal.

Their point was that Alaskan is a North German Alt, which is indeed a different animal from Dusseldorf Alt.

Picky, picky, picky....;)

I've been running Promash on Win 7 for over a year and a half.  No problems.
