No difference between beer and water....

Perhaps they couldn't perceive the difference from a single infusion mashed vs. decoction mashed beer either.  ;D

And they'd be right about that, too!    :D

Is this the same as caravienne?

AFAIK, yes.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Consistent problems with Diacetyl

I went through a persistent low level infection for almost a year before I knocked it out.  I switched to StarSan and I think that's what got rid of it.  Of course, if you already use StarSan, disregard that advice!

I'm virtually out of beer and once again no time to brew..... :(

What???

Out of beer Denny  :o

Better get brewing soon.  ;)

You're telling me!  I've got 4 kegs set aside for my wife's b'day party next weekend, and I'm praying there are some leftovers!

If the diacetyl comes on later, it could be caused by a lactic infection.

Granted he's no Denny Conn

One of those is enough for most sane people....

The Pub / Re: What does “craft beer” mean to you?
« on: July 06, 2010, 11:02:17 AM »
Artisan is synonymous with craft. That said, I've always liked the sound of "artisanal breweries".

Yeah, but after a few artisanal beers I can't say "artisanal beer" anymore. ;)

When Rogue first brought out their version of my rye IPA, it was called "Gone Awry".  They changed it when they found that after a few beers it was coming out as "gonorrhea".

Equipment and Software / Re: Let's talk about pumps!
« on: July 06, 2010, 10:57:03 AM »
Denny, I only need to put pellet hops in bags.  The whole hops are held back by my false bottom.

Pretty much the opposite for me, but I don't use a false bottom.  I have a copper pickup tube that curves around to the bottom side of the kettle.  Pellets go through the tube and pump into the fermenter.  Obviously, how you deal with the hops is dependent on your equipment setup.

I've never found it necessary to add more yeast in that situation.  But it might not hurt, either.

9087
I'd say "some" and it's not exactly what you may think of as honey.

The other thing I can think of is simply just the aging of the beer. The first keg that was fermented at 68 ,my wife wouldnt even drink it. She handed it back to me. Now after the second keg was tapped she is trying to drink the whole damn keg by herself because she likes it. The second keg was put into service about two months later. Maybe it is simply due to aging, and cold conditioning the beer longer. Dunno, and I wish I had some of the first keg left to do a side by side comparison

That might do it, Grant.  As as Fred mentioned, suspended yeast can impart a kind of bitterness.  CL-50 isn't always a fast flocculator, so the age difference may very well be what did it.

Interesting question, Grant.  First, are you sure it's hop bitterness you're tasting  I'm trying to come up with some reason that a lower fermentation temp would accentuate malt and I just can't think of one.  Have you tried a triangle tasting to be sure?  Have your wife pour 2 glasses of one beer and one of the other without you knowing which is which.  Then try to pick out the one that's different.  That will help determine that you aren't imagining it.

I was just curious about what they do for the beer.
