Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lager Yeast Longest Lag experience
« on: June 08, 2016, 08:49:43 AM »
My longest lag was about 4 days with no gravity change. But it turned out fine

Bittering about 50 IBUs Tinseth at 60 with Chinook, then 100g each of Amarillo and Equinox at 170/15. I was going to go 30 min with the whirlpool but I got to thinking about that green pepper think and thought maybe I'd minimize that with a shorter time and just use more of it

I think we need more info on recipe, process, yeast, fermentation temps.

As soon as I finish my coffee... today is a Amarillo/Equinox IPA and a batch of my house Pale Ale

NFL is too much like watching a Cops episode

General Homebrew Discussion / Rut, but ok with it
« on: June 06, 2016, 10:14:46 PM »
I've gone through various phases in home brewing, and I think I'm in a new one. Maybe its a rut. Maybe its just cruise control. I almost posted my "whats brewing this weekend" bla bla bla. Almost didn't post anything.  Then I decided to post this.

The beer is good. I've got about a dozen recipes I really like. Not really feeling like trying anything new. Still really dig brew day, keeping track of brews, kegging, etc. My fermenters are staying full. So its not burn out. I guess I'm just... cruising a rut for a while. And I'm perfectly fine with that.

Ever been there?

Just a quick heads up for all of the hockey fans on here: Lord Stanley's CUP is coming to Pittsburgh to stay on Thursday night. Penguins win 3-1 tonight to take a 3-1 lead in the best of 7 series against the San Jose Sharks. Here's to the final game being played on Thursday! And for all those non hockey fans, what were you doing tonight? No basketball to watch, tell me you did not miss the Stanley Cup finals for a baseball game?  The Cavs did not lose tonight, maybe they can come back and get into the series tomorrow in Cleveland.
I had a chat with 3 BC harley riders passing through this morning. They are convinced that the Cup will never go back to Canada. Sad deal. But we all agreed that being Canucks fans was good for the soul. Besides, after 60-70 games, its kind of a relief to not have to watch anymore

Edit- originally I put 70-80 games, but lets be real. For us its usually over by 60

I think you may be right there, Denny. I saw "Pacific Northwest" on the sack of grain and figured it was their Northwest malt offering (i.e. Northwest Pale Ale malt), but according to NorCal Brewing's website the printing on the front of xBmt's bag matches the plain jane US 2row.  I take back all of my hateful words :D

Believe me, I've used enough GW pale malt that I can recognize it pretty easily.  And can I put in my occasional plea to not refer to malt as "2 row"?  It just isn't very descriptive.  How about pils, pale, pale ale, etc.?  Those are all 2 row, but the names refer to different colors.
I use 2 row in all of my beers

I'll toss in a nod to Junior Brown

Doesn't hurt to read, but the final pH may end up perfectly fine

Just FYI my "summer pils" was 90% best pils, 10% carahell, mashed 150 for 90, and wy2352 got it down to 1.005 from 1.048. So don't fear the carahell leaving your beer too sweat

6ml in a 10 gal batch is fine. Even if it was a light lager, only a super taster might detect it... maybe


I had planned on being there, not happening now.  My hop school money went toward a Fatboy SE

DUDE!  I'm bummed!
I know, right? I traded bikes and my hop school money went to the tax man. Fate... two days later the boss canceled my vacation sept 1 and 2 for a schedule conflict. So I cant even ride up and have a beer with you
