What about the Hefeweizen and Belgian idea of intentionally under pitching to produce the esters?

I've never seen a controlled study suggesting that's actually the case.

Agreed.  AFAIK, it's anecdotal.

I think that, much like a shark riding on an elephant's back, it is something to watch out for but not necessarily anything to worry about.
Yeah, but what if it was a shark with frickin' lasers?
Then simply watching out may not be enough.  You'd best wear your mirrored clothes to reflect the laser back into the elephant's eye so it goes stampeding off in the wrong direction and tramples the lion with the wolverine on its back.  Then you'll finally be safe.

Thanks for the advice!  :)

My understanding is that these strains do [produce more esters by underpitching, but the whole issue is so nebulous I wouldn't say for certain.

Hi Mark,

Just d/l'ed your app.  Looks good, but one problem I have right off the bat is that evaporation is in %, not gal./hr.  That's a deal breaker for me.  I don't boil off twice as much for a 10 gal. batch as I do for a 5 gal. batch.

therefore enjoy brewing even more. You'll love it.

Music to my ears, man!  If it's not fun, why do it?

A 70 qt. cooler is a great choice for both 5 and 10 gal. batches.

When I put a bulkhead on my cooler I found I was getting incomplete draining.  The bulkhead is rigid and held the screen off the floor of the cooler.  By using tubing through the cooler wall, the braid laid on the bottom of the cooler and produced a siphon, which drained the cooler more completely.

No amount of planning can entirely compensate for stupidity.

There's your new sig, Sean!

FWIW, Old Crustacean is the name of Rogue's BW that's been made for years.  The New Crustacean is the "beard beer".  There are no crustaceans in it, although friend who used to brew for Rogue once made a crab porter.

Glad ya like the new av, Euge.  I though it was pretty cute!

I like the idea- for those times when good beer ain't available. Besides, what homebrewer hasn't tried adding hops or crystal malt to a Coors light?
...I wonder if I could make my own....

*raises hand*

I have never tried adding hops or crystal malt to Coors light or any other macro beer.  And what makes you think that using the extract could produce a "good beer""?

I can post a link to Dr. Cone's info on the Lallemand website tomorrow if you haven't found it by then.

Keep a spray bottle of Star San and spray everything down. Frankly, I think it's kinda tough to infect a beer post-ferment unless you are grossly sloppy with your sanitation.
