Like anything in home brewing, when you read something someone wrote about how to brew, I find myself spending more time considering the source, the date it was written, and then try and figure out if it applies or not. The good thing is its always fun and interesting to just try it out and see what your own personal experiences are.......not everything (some things are) you hear or read is gospel when it comes to brewing.

Ken, you have earned the Gold Star of Pragmatism today!  Good on ya!

I wouldn't have looked, but I did per Igloo's FAQ at its website:


"Which coolers will hold hot beverages?
If you own an Igloo Beverage Cube with the friction-fit lid design or a Classic Stainless Steel Beverage cooler – these models can accommodate hot beverages. All other Igloo coolers are NOT recommended for use with hot liquids."

Oh oh :-[

Calm down.  Same thing they've been saying for at least 15 years.  They say that because they haven't tested them with hot liquids, not because they don't work or aren't safe.

Ouch!  I did a protein rest for my currently fermenting Czech Pilsner.  Now of course I wish I wouldn't have, simply to emulate another recipe and because Pilsner Urquell does it.

IMO, a decision to do a p rest should never be based on a recipe.  It should be based on the specs of the malt you're using.

We used portable bottling truck for the beer I brewed at one of Rogue's facilities for NHC last year.

Duncan, I've been called a lot of things in my life, but "reputable" might be a first!  ;)

And how did you use it? Got to thinking about this after reading about a spirulina beer....kinda makes my mushrooms beers look normal.
What kind of mushrooms in what kind of beer? I was recently thinking about this. Maybe a portobella pilsner?

I've brewed a brown ale with reduced maple sap and sassafras roots a few years ago. Friends still ask for it.

Chanterelles in a wee heavy.

Never heard of Persian mulberries.  What did they taste like and what did you do with them?

Denny- any circumstances where you would / have perform[ed] a rest?

If I was making a beer with a LOT of wheat, I might do one.  But since I don't care for wheat beers, it's hard to say!  I've made a couple wits and didn't do a p rest.  A lot of people seem to do a p rest to aid lautering, but I've never had a stuck runoff so personally I don't see the need.

Has anyone who does a protein rest ever made a thin, watery beer?

I did early on in my brewing.  Making an PseudOfest with GW Munich.  Did a 30 min. rest at 120.  The beer had no head and the body was like water.
