Great they shared ......but not inspired or impressed. Lack of anything that can be substantiated....just lots of conjecture and otherwise. Honestly, IMO this is overkill that most will never chase. Great beer can be made wth substantially less effort and high tech equip to measure it.

Currently on tap at Castle Numbskull:
Scottish Heavy
German Pils
American Oak Aged Wild Ale w/ Blackberries
American Wheat w/ Rye

Condensation wouldn't leave me alone for this pic.
Ken, these are the beers I'm shipping you.  I admit I'm nervous - it's the first time I've used my beer gun (crossing fingers no oxidation) and first time brewing each of these styles.
They've been bottled for over a week just trying to track down a good container.
Trust me..oxidation is not gong to be an issue. Looking forward to them!

I know it works, I was more referencing Ken's foam creating/retention thoughts from a while back.

Marzen I brewed in March (but didn't keep until October):

FWIW I always use gelatin in the keg and get great results. After a couple days I pump out half a pint of sludge and it's clear after.
Yep same

Yeah, I like Dingemanns too.  I feel it is a bit fuller, sweeter than some of the German maltsters. Good to change it up here and there as well.


Yep, nice malt. I like to mix it up and sub in different malts here and there. Helles is about the perfect beer to compare pils malts.

agreed. i need to go back and get some more weyermann barke pils and give it a shot with a helles this time.

Thanks Ken. How was the carb? I always come up just a tad to account for filling loss. Ok, or a tad high?
Perfect. What brand of base malts again?

Switched up the Dunkel at the last min. I bumped up the bittering to 20 and added an ounce of Saphir at 10. I guess that makes it a Vienna

Saphir Wiener!
I like it...sounds good!

i'm actually primarily avangard pils..not best..cant get that here.  But I also like weyermann malts quite a bit. Recently brewed pils with barke pils malt...like it a lot. I'm also fond of blending the malts-adds a little complexity and something different.

I'd go right after a pils with 835 and then go from there. simple and you'll know for sure if you have the process down or not.

I've been saving different steps and single infusion Pils and comparing them recently. As I said earlier, one thing that's trending is the body and foam retention  and foam density. Interesting is that single infusion 148f for 90 min and the step at 30-45 min at 144F and 45min at 158f as Compared to step of 60min st 143-144f and 60mins at 163f are thinner in mouthfeel and noticeably thinner foam and shorter foam retention time. The single infusion is FG of 1.008, the shorter step 30-45/45 is 1.012, and the 60/60 step is 1.008. The higher gravity beers actually have thinner mouthfeel then the 1.008 60/60 step....this is very interesting to me.
