All Grain Brewing / Re: Wheat beer/ Decoction mash question
« on: April 05, 2014, 08:54:51 AM »
I'm a believer in the effect of decoction mash but it is subtle and not always worth the effort. I don't usually see it done with American wheat recipes but you can do a decoction mash with anything, so try it out if you want and see what you think.

It's very easy to do a decoction mash with a cooler mash tun. You just need a medium to large pot and your stove or other heating element to boil the decoctions.

That Pabst Ale strain is not much different from Chico or any other neutral strain.

I tried putting my nips in the beer but I don't think they imparted any flavor.

I think PBR here is in the $5-6 range along with Lonestar or Busch and the like. If I can get a hold of Schlitz 1960's formula happiness ensues.

I seem to think there was a BYO issue not too long ago with old school American lager recipes.

Or increase the size of the carboy, stick your hand in to get the cork out and use the bigger carboy to make more beer in the future.

What happens when you have a really active fermentation, one of the ones that requires a blow off tube, what does all that krausen forced into this device do to it?

Really good question.

No chinook? I really enjoy the pine/citrus mix in a pale or IPA.

This is the beer that is "un-distilled" but meant to target liquor-drinking crowds, right?

It must not be selling well because I've seen it in the clearance bin at a few places.

I bought two pounds of Belma when they were first released so I've been using Belma to bitter all of my beers until I run out of the stuff.

Putting them in the fridge will help drop the yeast and extend viability but as Sean points out, it's not like your yeast would have died if you left them in the fermentor at room temperature for another day.

Just more dealing to get approval on this bill in exchange for something else in the future. It's rare for a bill to pass both houses and not have the conference version get voted through.

It's an interesting device and I see where it has its role for people who care more about the recipe creation and final product over the actual brewing process. Personally, I like having a greater level of flexibility than what the product offers so it wouldn't be a good fit for me.

Is this the product that doesn't reach an actual boil? That's the only thing I am suspicious about.

Is OP just looking for two hops to build hoppy beers around or two hops to be the only hops in several beers?

I leave it all together in primary.

I've squeezed the bag without problems although you need to adjust down the volume of water for grain absorption because you're pulling that liquor back out of the grains when you squeeze.
