Agreed.  The other point (that I have mentioned before) is that we all have different systems and we all introduce varying amounts of O2 and brewtan may help some people more than it helps others.  My setup is old and very manual... lots of pouring, splashing, stirring, recircing, racking, etc.  If the GBF guys are saying that O2-pickup on brewday can instantly rob your beer of deep malt character, that suggests that there is a very nice short-term benefit to the brewtan as well.  Now we just need a North American supplier to make it easier for us to get our hands on it!  :D


No joke! And my process is old school homebrewing, too - ie., pouring splashing, etc.
Same here. Guess I will have to order some and give it a try.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest
« on: August 29, 2016, 05:53:41 PM »
Just picked up this years. More hop forward than some may care for but I think it's a very enjoyable beer. Beats the heck out Sam Adams ( and some others) o'fest IMO.

My new Ofest - first batch with Brewtan B. Also the first batch using all Barke malts. Wiped the condensation but it's so sticky here that it came right back. Anyway, it's easily the best Ofest I've ever made. Lots of malt complexity and richness with zero crystal. I'm gonna reluctantly say it has 'it'.



Looks great. I've been dry now since early summer. Must start brewing again so will have to get some yeast going.

This brewtan is the anti o2 stuff , right?

My best dort ever. Creamy foam that hangs forever. Can't wait until August to brew this again and throughout the fall/winter.

Ken if you haven't yet, try some of the Weyermann Barke Pils, 4% carahell and some acid malt - I am so happy with my dort.  Pic to come soon.

used barke pils for pilsner, not a dort yet.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Hefeweisen seems wrong
« on: June 18, 2016, 04:55:10 PM »
Yeah, 157F is quite high for a Hefe. How sure are you that your thermometer reading is accurate? If its reading low, that would easily explain the poor mashing and conversion performance.

+1 on temp perhaps reading low. if it really was 157F, while high all things considered (good PH and crush) I would have expected better conversion. had you crossed into 160F +....perhaps your issue.

also, wheat needs a tighter crush IME- might have had some impact but unless it was whole kernels in your mash, not likely your primary culprit...spit balling.
