General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Hop Slurry Method

Because I don't weight the bags I use for whole hops when I dry hop, I always gently agitate the fermenter a couple times a day.

so like do you comment on it's hair do? maybe smirk when it puts too much sugar in it's coffee?  ;D

 ;D

i may give the Hochkurz double decoction a try with the step hot water infusion procedure..seems reasonably straight forward and simple to perform.

I considered that for the doppelbock I'm doing tomorrow.  I think I'm too lazy....er, pragmatic....to really do it, though.  We'll see what tomorrow brings....

Steve, do you use spreadsheets?  That's basically all Bru'nwater is.  After you input the water you're using, you play "what if" with mineral additions until you get close to what the profile you've selected says.  It's not too difficult and well worth some time spent learning it.

IIRC, one of the new breweries in town (Falling Sky) has a cereal cooker as part of their German built system.

I had the same thing happen yesterday and clearing my cookies fixed it.  I don't know if that's a universal solution.  I just heard from AHA IT that they're well aware of the issue and hard at work on a fix.

Munich was known for dark beers before water chemistry was figured out. Use the amber malty profile. With your grain bill you don't want that much alkalinity, so amber malty.

Did a good on last year using 833.

You don't need to add Mg, it will come from the mash. If you want to add, use Epsom salts MgSO4. No Na in Epsom salts.

is 154F the most appropriate mash temp you would use for an oktoberfest? thinking i'm going with 2206 for my yeast, and with a 154F mash, beer smith calculates FG of 1.014.

154ish sounds good to me.  Don't worry too much about what Beersmith predicts for FG.

I always put comments about balance in the flavor section.  IIRC, the scoresheet even specifies that.

I wouldn't be worried about the sulfate.  I recently increased mine to about 200 ppm with such good results that I intend to go higher the next time.  You could also look at a profile based on the color and flavor you're going for.

I had the same problem earlier today.  I cleared my cookies and got logged in, but there was server work going on at the same time so I don't know which action fixed things.
