Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Interesting Observation wlp 530 vs 500
« on: October 20, 2011, 01:13:29 PM »
Martin,

Funny you should mention that because I have made the same observation myself.  When I run off now I have a T attached to the tubing so that I can fill each carboy at the same time.  This way I can mitigate the effect of that potential stratification.



I don't understand this, although I believe that both of you guys have observed it.  But it just doesn't make sense to me.  Let's say you let a bottle of Coke sit.  Does it stratify, too?

I'm brewing the classic Dean Larson "Christmas Tree Ale" recipe.

I think I'll try dropping the yeast first, then dry hop in women's nylon at 68F for 7-10 days then keg.

Tell me you mean the hops and not you!  ;)

AFAIK, the AHA isn't printing those any longer.  You have to d/l and print them yourself.
She just sent me a stack recently by mail.

So what do I know??   ;D

Whole hops can cause clogging nightmare if you don't bag them.

+1000!

I use a Bazooka T in my kettle with loose whole hops.  No clogging...yet!

Denny are you sure you aren't a terrierman?   ;) 

Someone who owns a terrier?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lager Starter Help!
« on: October 19, 2011, 11:43:53 AM »
Yeah it's at 55F, not at room temp.  I read somewhere that you get less mutants if you keep the yeast at most +5 over the fermentation temp for the lager your making.  Maybe it's too anal I don't know.

I believe you're going on incorrect info.  You;re trying to grow yeast and yeast will grow better at room temp than 55.  Mutants aren't a problem.

I've brewed five batches of my strong golden ale using 3787 all of which included about 20% sugar added at the beginning of the boil.  Apparent attenuation on those batches ranged from 89 - 96%.  

That pretty much matches my experience.

Sister of Willamette.  Named after another river in the PNW?

I'll bet you're right, Jeff!

If they are looking for feedback, tell them to change the name. ;) Columbia/Columbus is too close.

Yeah, I know!  I got them in an order from Ted.  Don't know who grows them.

Thanks, Ron!  I hadn't seen that.  Glad to know that they're Fuggle like before I used them!

I was sent a sample of Columbia hops in an order I received recently.  I know nothing about them.  Can anybody fill me in?

The overabundance of Scandinavian metal and polka in this thread seems to call for a proportionate response from, let's say, Curtis and Bootsy:
