The Cicerone program details how they suggest glasses are to be cleaned and how to test dirty glasses. It was too funky to copy and past, but it's on page 4 of this doc:

Some thoughts (though these may or may not be helpful since I don't know the exact situation):
  • Brew low ABV beers. Some traditional Berliner Weisse recipes can be as low as 2-3%. If you can have low levels of alcohol in a small pour of beer, that's a decent compromise. Or water down some beers to get the ABV to a tolerable level, like the big guys do to make three-two beer (or whatever they call it in your area)
  • As others have said, try fermenting kombucha. While it's fermented, it usually comes in under 1%ABV. There's lots of options for different flavor combinations.
  • Soda. Drew Beechum did a spread in a Zymurgy from a year or two ago on making a bunch of soda. The recipes sound insanely delicious. If you're interested I can go back and find the exact issue.

Good luck!

For some reason my zymurgy app quit working after downloading the March/April issue. I have tried deleting and reinstalling it As well as doing a reset on the iPad with no luck. Anyone else having any issues??

Shoot me an email and we can see if we can figure out what the issue might be.

I was watching this when it first aired and was super stoked to see it be about homebrewing (and serving homebrew at a bar). I was pretty surpised how accurate the auto-siphon drawing was. Good on them for the accuracy  :P

... When making stew, you add the peas at flameout.

This cracked me up  ;D

I had the same issue. I started brewing 1.5 gallon batches and primary fermenting in a 2 gal bucket (I think I got it on Northern Brewer). If you feel compelled to rack, you will have enough wort to fill a 1 gallon jug.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: NHC Seminars

A few us ran some tests on a random selection of seminars from each year and they all played the full file.

A few things to note:
1. The audio files are fairly large. If you skip ahead, it can take a few seconds or so for the buffer to catch up. Try waiting a little bit when you hit the dead spot and see if it loads.
2. If you're trying to access on mobile, it could very well be a bandwidth issue
3. If you're still experiencing this issue you can right click the audio icon and click the "Save link as" option and it will allow you to save the audio file and then you can load it onto your computer or mobile device which should cut down on any buffer/bandwidth issues.

If you're still having issues, please email me and we can work on diagnosing the issue further.

And if anyone else out there on the Forum is having issues, feel free to email me as well.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I am going to look into it and will get back to you once I have an answer.


edit: Also. Is this happening on all audio presentations you try to access? Could you let me know the ones you've tried that did this (please include the year)?

Sorry to hear about your experience with the Zymurgy App. I am going to pass this along to appropriate people and see if I can't get a solid answer for you. Hang tight.
