General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Kolsch question

I always use Spalt Select in my kolsch.  Isn't this the traditional kolsch hop?

I don't know if it's traditional, but it's a great choice.

Saaz is not a very good choice IMO. Can;t go wrong with hallertauer mittelfruh. Also a combination of Hallertauer and Tettnanger. I really like some of the American Hallertauer lineage hops with a kolsch. One of the best kolsches I ever made was an all FWH made with crystal hops.

How about Mt. Hood?  I've got a couple pounds I need to use up somehow.

IMO, Mt. Hood is a great sub for Hallertauer.

Glad it worked out, Kai.  I was really concerned after getting your email this AM, but it sounds OK now.  My domain name is set to auto renew unless I tell them otherwise.  Can you do something like that?

I kinda think of 1388 as "Belgian 1056".  Some of what you think of as Belgian character, but a fairly neutral yeast overall.

The 3522.  Its tartness and phenolics really complement Am. hops.  I've got one in the fermenter right now that used Chinook, Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo, and Falconer's Flight.

I like Wyeast 3787 for both those styles.  I also like Wyeast 1762 for the dark strongs.  Those are WLP530 and WLP550, respectively.

Going over old notes while brewing last night, I noticed that I used 3522 (Belgian Ardennes) in a batch a couple years ago.  The batch turned out memorable, though I have no notes as to flavor.  Just fond memories and empty bottles...

I've not used the yeast since but I just might try it again in the near future.

That yeast also makes a killer Belg/Am. IPA.

Jiust heard from the AHA IT folks that they're looking into both issues.  I'll let you know what happens when I hear from them.

Equipment and Software / Re: Best Hydrometer?
« on: April 04, 2011, 01:56:10 PM »
but many come with a built in thermometer.

I love those!  Mine not only has a built in thermometer, alongside the temp scale there's also a correction listing that tells you how much to add or subtract.

I wouldn't go any more cara/crystal than that considering what you're shooting for.  Maybe think about dropping the C10 to 1/2 lb. also.

Seems like a lot of carapils considering you're using C10 also.

All Grain Brewing / Re: single temp infusion
« on: April 04, 2011, 11:31:05 AM »
I'd say that a single infusion mash is all you need almost always.  Other techniques are optional and off little benefit in my experience.  There are occasional time when you might want to do a protein rest, but that depends solely on the grist you use.  There are other times a step infusion or decoction may be what you want to do, but those are never a requirement.

As to the system, go Cheap'n'Easy....www.dennybrew.com
