I can vouch, it's delicious.
It's the misses favorite....so must work it in every other brew!


Could be worse ! It could be fruit beers. Ask me how I know. Luckily my wife doesn't want one every other brew.  ;D
Haha. I'm lucky she lived in Germany and bitten by same bug as I.

I just used mine again and I have a helpful tip: the spring loaded valve at the end of the gun should be put back on the gun before attaching it to a pressurized keg,not in the cleaning solution
Ha! Whoops!

Are you still pleased with this product, Ken? After my score sheets came back and said my beers were oxidized, I think I'm in the market for a beer gun. Northern Brewer conveniently sent me a 20% promo code yesterday too.

yep no complaints so far.

i'm not bashing..i don't think anyways.  just saying whats on my mind about this since many of us took plenty of abuse from someone for articulating our thoughts. just ironic I guess.

but if we want to abate and shut it down....powers that be -shut it down.

Ha.  I don't know about that.  If people want to have a private forum, so be "it".

Speak of that (it), I think Belgian beers have an equally magical IT that most American breweries can't replicate.  Such simple beers have amazing flavors, and it's not just the yeast.  The malt comes through with such soft breadiness.  In my travels over there, I saw a lot of copper and a lot of grants, and that's not different than the traditional German methods.  So, trace minerals for yeast and HSA?
Sure it's a free country- have a "private forum". Screen members to expectations and get expected conversation in return.

Thanks Ken

sure thing. FWIW, I wouldn't exepriment with a limited yeast like 835 either..too precious to dork it up.

Or 2 separate 1.5L shaken not stirred starters? I think in the end, I will go with both in 1 batch in order to try to maintain the simplest approach, as that is what the pure pitch is supposed to be for anyways.  I don't want to mess around with splitting a starter, or transferring a starter with yeast that is supposed to be fresh and as pure as they make it, especially on smallish and low ish OG batches. Glad I asked and did not just pitch 1 pouch per 3.5 gallon

certainly 2 starters works also...whatever is easier for you.  i'd be hesitant also with 1 pouch per batch for lager-but every new theory needs an experiment Frank  ::)

It is a magic quality, but great beer doesn't need that quality either.

To be certain, "it" is not a "magic" quality; otherwise I'd be a magician ;)

It is an aroma and flavor characteristic.
Well, fine then! Either way, I'm still after it, but I guess I don't need to hang around the elitists to strive for it myself. I like you open minded types :)

if i had a question and I wanted one opinion or one way of thinking..I'd just ask myself the question and answer it.

I prefer AHA forum where you ask, receive many perspectives, respectfully exchange thoughts, and then try things out to formulate your path forward. I've learned more in 4+ years on this forum than I could have ever imagined.

Frank- If you can, you could also to throw 2 pouches into 3L 1.036ish starter and then split the slurry from that for two batches.

^^^^this on stir plate nets projected 590B cells

Thanks guys, guess I will likely go with Ken's route. It will delay one batch, but should help ensure proper fermentation completion. In that case, I will likely go with Ken's Pils and his suggestion

WL says you should have at least 200b cells with two fresh pouches. for 1.048 OG and 3.5gal batch size, target pitch is about 230B.  so you're right on the threshold-depending how fresh the yeast is.
