I found the last section of questions to be very vague. I didn't really understand what was specifically being referred to.

yeah to me, the whole was focused on features and attributes of product and support...hence my inclination about the motive.

what would be the premise for the thesis content?

done--took 6 minutes.

edit: i do question if this is for thesis or soliciting feedback to develop a product  ::)

cool. i'm doing a modified cream ale recipe with 8.5# vienna as base, #1 corn, .5# carapils and 3oz flaked barley. I mash for 75min at around 150F for this recipe.

pre boil gravity........1.043

didn't do the math but that looks like pretty high % conversion of poetnetial yield....on to the successful fermentation now!

Well........lesson learned.  But I did run this grain bill by the group last week and no one said don't do it.  The only advice was to use a fair amount of hops to balance the Vienna.  What can I expect to happen in the fermenter?

you get your preboil gravity reading yet?

Is that test even 100% accurate/reliable?

Likely that the mash converted.

Middle of my mash  7* Vienna, 3* Flaked corn, 1* L. Munich.  After 60 minutes at 150 degrees and 10 minutes at 168 degrees, still coming up black on the iodine test.  Tasted wort and it's sweet.  Any quick opinions.  Gotta move forward on this.

Thanks

take hydrometer or refractometer reading and see if you are on target...likely all is well assuming you thermometer isn't way off.

Thanks jeff- I knew there was an engineer who could explain it!

I just dont know how to explain it. Hops with that strong pine really turn me off.
 Edit: it's as strong a turn off as cilantro is to me....might be genetic disposition..

Interesting. I find it to be one of the most drinkable imperial IPAs out there being that it's big but still plenty dry to drink. The hops present are chinook, simcoe, centennial, cascade, and Citra. I don't get cat piss in any beer lol. It's one of my favorite commercial IPAs. I have 10 in the fridge and probably need to get another 4 pack.

It always amazes me how we all taste things differently.

yeah so here is my definition of catpiss.....pine pine pine.   its just too sweet for my liking also.
