General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Souring a Berliner Weisse
« on: March 06, 2013, 08:43:15 PM »
i have done 3 berliners.  the first was lacto pitched first then an ale yeast pitched 3 days wasnt sour enough.  the second two were sour mashed and turned out good.   i sour mashed the second for 24hrs and the third 48hrs. the last got a 34 score at NHC 2012.  in the future i will not sour mash but split the batch and innoculate one with lacto and the other with ale yeast then blend.

japan is a ripe market for craft beer.  you would only get a very small share but there seems to be little competition and probaly a cult following.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Barleywine vs Imperial Beer at 10% ABV
« on: February 25, 2013, 09:41:49 PM »
flavor is the main difference.  i am non expert but the gist american barleywine is malty, hoppy and balanced.  an imperial stout is more complex and may have more alcohol presence.  an imperial ipa will be more hop forward.

Equipment and Software / Re: chilling a 30-gal batch

try a prechiller to a counter flow chiller.  you could do as many gallons as you like so long as you have something to keep the prechiller cold.

i have 3 options, splitting into 5 gal buckets, sanke and brew cube.  brew cube is my fave, i drilled it for a spigot.  i bought it from my lhbss and have seen them at the container store.

the amazon danby link is contradicting.  it show a kegerator and a dorm fridge.  the kegerator would probably work but the dorm fridge may not due to the shelving in the door.  my kegerator is 24x24x36 and i have had to use it as a ferm chamber in a pinch.  my buckets came from sf brewcraft.  i think my 13 gallon brew cube even fits.  i dont remember the name of my kegerator

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Increase in FG in secondary?
« on: December 21, 2012, 09:44:37 AM »
Maybe your airlock wasn't on tight and you evaporated 40 percent of your beer off. :)

If you didn't de-gas your secondary sample, you might have had CO2 bubbles lifting your hydrometer.

+1 bubbles, measure again and spin the hydrometer
