I still have some to set up. Guides may not have that level of detailed knowledge. Will see what I find.I thought he was saying to get other things under control first, later in the process. Cold side aeration will stale a beer regardless I'd it was brewed with care on the hot Side or not. You have to take care as you go along, and do everything low O2.
Yeah, I've always been more careful on the cold side than the hot side, Jeff. But it's past time to put more caution into the hot side as well. I fell into the trap of 'HSA is overstated' for a long time, but I'm ready to take care of the whole process. Not sure how far into the GBF process I'll go , but I'm gonna start using Brewtan B on every batch and probably work some of the other lodo principles in as well.
Yeah, I got to be complacent. I know some guys who brew very good beer and splash and aerate like crazy. I can't say how long the beer is stable.
I try not to splash the mash and wort. We put 1 Campden tablet into the mash, but that is too little to late. I don't do the boiled and chilled thing. No DO meter here.
I do have a couple ideas to try, but I might need to get a DO meter for those techniques.
Soon we will be back in Germany, and touring a few breweries. I will ask what they do, some smaller ones won't do anything.
I look forward to hearing what they say.
