I used to brew longer.  Then I learned what I was doing and got several hours back from my brew day.

Now if we could only do something about people who think judge longer is a good thing...

It's the American way!  More is always better!  ;)

If you want to do it, though, I'd use about 1.4 pack of 05.

No way, he should use 1.3 packs of 05.  ;)

Sorry, couldn't resist.  But why did you pick the 1.4 number?


Because my typing sucks!  I meant 1/4.

Don't leave them in the oxyclean too long.  A scale builds up on things that soak too long.

That seems to be dependent on your water.  I've occasionally left bottles/jugs/flasks in Oxiclean for a week without any problems.

FWIW, it's interesting to see how things come around...I recall first posting about using Oxiclean to remove labels back around 99-200 on rcb.  Just a reminder that it's a good idea to revisit what we've ;earned in the past for the benefit of new brewers.

I think if you're going to be selling them, don't do it here.  If you just want opinions, no problem!

No I am not intending on selling them here, just after some market feedback

Great...hope ya get the info you need!

Ah, I think I responded to a mistype...."Also I love Rahr 2-row but have heard some less than outstanding reviews of the pale malt"...I bet you meant pale ale there.

Just chilling down my tripel.  I tried a taste of the Simplicity syrup and found it had kind of honey notes to it.

Man, I wouldn't worry about it.  I've lagered beer for months and there was still plenty of yeast left.  If you want to do it, though, I'd use about 1.4 pack of 05.

FWIW, my favorite porter strain is Ringwood. Irish ale yeast is good, too....just ferment it cool.

You are a sick, sick man....;)

Looking at getting these made, what do people think?

Montessori School? Same here..... knitting, embroidery, crochet..... To all the testosterone knights..... buzz off. I can still pull out a needle and thread and make happen what I need to happen. And as far as a bunch of guys chasing a ball.....get your own ball. OK, back to "carbonation checks"..... ;D

I don't know if Montessori had even thought of a school when I was in school in IA in the 50s/60s.  There sure as heck weren't any around where I lived at any rate,

I gave up on it years back.  I found it threw diacetyl and sometimes a weird tasting pineapple ester.

YMMV, but I have found tasting unfermented wort to be completely meritless and unpleasant
MMVs a lot.  You really find it unpleasant?  Weird.  :-\

You can also count me as weird, then...no surprise, huh?
