I care about step...positive difference for me and my lagers. haven't taken any different steps to minimize O2 - need to catch up on everyone's posts and see if the hassle is worth it for me.

If you wait a bit, there will be some results coming. Lots of people in the midst of experimenting. Some with brewtan and others with LODO.

for sure....no hurry here.

just picked up my fresh pressed juice from the orchard. 1.055OG and 3.35PH. boiling down some to 2qt of concentrate to pump up the OG....smells awesome boiling right now!  cote des blancs at 58F.

Edit: the boil down added to 5 gals got me to 1.070.. happy with that. A nice 9% winter warmer cider

Awesome. Dort?

Not really. Started with my dort and then decided on something different. Not sure what you call it- continental amber ???

Sounds good to me. Kind of like a Czech Amber lager-ish?. Bet it's tasty.
Probably so. I'm sure it will get consumed. Just wanted to get a generation of the wlp830 out of the way before I move on to pils and dort.

Thanks, man! Having my belated Oktoberfest party Saturday. The Ofest and Pils are tasty, and I'm getting sausages and sauerkraut from an awesome local German sausage maker/butcher extraordinaire (just ask hopfenundmalz). Gonna make my German potato salad, red cabbage, and my wife is making strudel. Not bad.  ;)
Beer looks and sounds great...car started, gps set, on my way

How has it developed along the way Ken?  I am ready to test my will power and hold some of my recent Baltic porter for at least a year.  That's a beautiful looking brew I have to admit...

Really smooth and can't tell it's on the higher ABV side. Vanilla has held up well in the bottle. Going to work another batch of this soon.

2 year old robust vanilla porter. Down to 4 bombers and really aged nicely.

back in the game after the summer hiatus!!!

Going with my vienna mandarina IPA.  8-kegs empty and clean.....sad but true and hope to change that over the next few months.

Happy brewing this weekend  ;D

Ahh good to be back brewing. All went as planned and looking forward to having fresh homebrew back on tap.

Especially with 1/2 # of goodness thrown in ....cascade,Amarillo,mandarina

Quick shot of a bomber of my version of Jamil's Evil Twin in a 25th anniversary Lizard liter stein. So tasty

The glass alone  makes it a winner frank!  Looks good.

After the upgrade, all my measured mash efficiency's were off.  The issue is with the field meas post mash gravity.  It arbitrarily put in a value of 1.050.  If I put the meas pre-boil gravity in the meas post mash gravity field it fixed it.  Had to go through 50 + recipes to fix this

I see that...PITA for sure.
