170 is definitely not too hot for sparging.  I usually use 190ish water for sparging.

Yeast and Fermentation / WLP001 fermented cold
« on: April 21, 2012, 07:06:00 PM »
I think I could say that WLP001 is THE cleanest ale yeast available today. The key to this yeast is pitching cool 58-62F, then controlling the ferm temp by keeping less than 68F. YMMV.

Have your tried Denny's Favorite from WYeast?  That is even cleaner.

Check's in the mail, Tom!

More surface area and better release of the carageenan.

OK, it makes sense that would happen.  I wonder how much more effective it actually makes it?

At an NHC seminar one year, I introduced him as "a former adult movie star".

I'd recommend you cut that braid in half.  It will work just as well and be a lot more manageable.

OK. So basically the braid mainly filters at the exit point, right?

Correct.  It's porous...it's not like the wort enters then flows down it.

Martin, what would be the advantage to grinding it finer?

Beer Recipes / American wheat
« on: April 20, 2012, 09:23:55 PM »
It seems like my mind is changing on that as well. I think the main reason why is my buddy likes wheat beers, but he wanted more of a "hop bite" to them. I thinking this beer is becoming more like a wheat ipa, like Sam Adams. I'm beginning to think that i may just scale back the hops a bit and have wheat beer with American ingredients. I can always make a wheat ipa later  :)

I wrote an article on recipe formulation that's in the new issue of Zymurgy.  The main point of the article is that you've got to know where you're going so you know when you get there.  I suggest you take a few minutes to really think about what you want this beer to be like.  Try to "taste" it in your mind.  When you have a good idea of what that taste is, start over on your recipe.

Beer Recipes / American wheat

thanks, that is about the length i was thinking. I have yet another question should i dry hop during the second week or the third week (i.e. closer to bottling or not)

Ya know, as I keep reading your comments, I keep wondering if maybe you'd rather have an APA than a wheat beer.

Anchor Steam: purchased by Fritz at age 28.

Fortunately he had a family fortune to help him along.

And that's wrong? Did he rack up a big debt with his family? Do you really know? I don't.

Did I say it was wrong?  It just made it easier for him and less risky than it might be for others.  And actually I do know quite a bit about it since I grew up a couple blocks away from him.

Ingredients / white wheat malt

I know that the protein level is different than red wheat.  I think it's higher but I'm not positive.

I'm not a plastics chemist, but I don"t think HDPE will leach, even under heat.

But you're right Denny, it's not exactly the same.

Which was all I was saying.  You'll make something, but it won't be exactly what you set out to make.
