General Homebrew Discussion / head retention
« on: March 03, 2015, 11:16:18 AM »
been a few post recently on this-some perhaps beer related and others equipment related.

I came across this from weyermann, and curious what others think of beer PH being one culprit for poor head of beer:

"Finished beers with pH-values at or below 4.4 have
greater foam stability and head retention than
those with values of 4.5 and above."

General Homebrew Discussion / Beer for Thought...
« on: March 03, 2015, 10:15:20 AM »
This forum has a great group of people with a vast amount of knowledge to share with fellow home brewers. Most often,  people are very willing to provide responses to questions, share their experiences and opinions, and help home brewers with their problems or with their education of the craft. I was directed to this forum after I had experienced another forum where this was anything but the norm. There were nasty, radical responses and quips at every turn –especially if you disagreed with someone. There is an occasional harsh, condescending, patronizing, or needless terse comment from time to time on this forum. It’s really unfortunate and unnecessary IMO. People come here to learn and to inquire about that which they do not know or have little experience with. Sometimes the post may seem painfully obvious to those reading it, prompting a less than courteous response or comment. Someone’s opinion or claim, albeit wrong, misguided, or not based upon fact should only be met with good spirited debate and direction-not snarky or discourteous comments.  This forum should be a place for passionate discussions to develop, and where ultimately  sound solutions and answers result for the benefit of both the OP, contributing posters, and the readers. Failing all else, we should never seek to break someone’s spirit for home brewing with comments that make them feel inferior or less than others in the profession. Comment professionally and courteously, or just ignore and keep to yourself if you feel annoyed or bothered – the forum will benefit from the silence.

Ingredients / Meussdoerffer Melanoidin
« on: February 24, 2015, 11:22:55 AM »
Anyone use this before?

Meussdoerffer Melanoidin, Germany -Cargill
This kilned malt, similar to a dark aromatic Munich, improves flavor and fullness. Meussdoerffer Melanoidin malt imparts a reddish color to dark, amber, and red colored beers.
Ideal for: Amber beers, ales, stouts, bock
30-40 L

looks to be a bit more robust then the 23-31 L weyermann I have used. just bought 10lbs and plan on trying it out next brew.
