Other Fermentables / Cider spot on
« on: August 21, 2015, 06:34:28 AM »
Grabbed a sample before I cold crash this one. Apple is best taste I've picked up on in my cider. I boiled a gallon down this time , cooled and added the concentrated juice in. Final PH 3.43.

General Homebrew Discussion / Calc help
« on: August 19, 2015, 06:53:09 PM »
If there is 25g sucrose in 1oz of pure apple syrup, and I wanted to add enough to 5 gals of 1.000 cider to back sweeten to 1.008, what's the formula to figure this out?

General Homebrew Discussion / orange zest and bittering
« on: August 17, 2015, 03:20:46 PM »
made a summer wheat ale with 2 small oranges grated zest. 25IBU and it has a really nice orange smell and flavor to it - just what i was looking for.

questions came to mind though. would orange zest on its own in the right quantity serve as a similar bittering agent as hops? no idea just popped in my head and wonder if anyone has done it or if its feasible.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Wheats fall from grace
« on: August 13, 2015, 03:28:54 AM »
I had to laugh when I saw a can of "Hefe Wheaties". Fulton responsible for this monster.....

Hey kids , eat Wheaties as a kid and then drink Hefe Wheaties as an adult....wholesome goodness in a can!

Perhaps Denny's lucky charms beer has a chance....

cant say enough about my hydra chiller. with well water, took 6 gals wort from boiling to 60F in under 5 minutes, then recirculation in ice cooler and dropped to pitch temp of 47F in 3 minutes.

General Homebrew Discussion / first brew since april
« on: July 17, 2015, 04:36:53 AM »

Yeast and Fermentation / maiden voyage white labs pure pitch
« on: July 17, 2015, 03:33:41 AM »
using WLP001 pure pitch today for first time. as instructed, one pouch is supposed to be enough to pitch directly into wort with OG of 1.070 or lower. my APA is 1.050 OG and the yeast pouch was produced June 28th.

Throwing caution to the wind and following white labs guidance- no starter!   

i will  follow up with results.
