Kegging and Bottling / Re: Does Gelatin Clearing work without adding CO2
« on: January 26, 2016, 07:24:07 PM »
But thats not bottle conditioning. I had one batch, gel fined in primary, accidentally disturbed primary while racking and sucked up just a little gelled sediment to bottling bucket. Every bottle had a tiny amount of tiny floating bits that would stay in suspension a long time. I cant say that is evidence enough to prove anything, but its what I attributed it to. I suspect that if there is spent gel present when you add sugar and referment, that the little gelatin globules aren't as willing to sink as easy. No idea why.

Yes. Be careful not to get any of the settled gel into your bottling bucket. I use gel fining on almost every batch. I ferment extra beer just to make it easier to get my desired final volume without disturbing the sediment. If you suck up some setteled gel, its not the end of the world. It just doesnt re-settle very good. You may have floaties.

Honestly, I don't see anything necessarily wrong with that, at least not on my monitor here at work.  Looks like just a super light version of the style, with only 1 to 1.5 SRM.  It is possible.  It can happen with a really low gravity beer and a really weak boil.  Looks kind of like wort from 100% pilsner malt.
Except for the hardcore DMS in one, stink foot isovaleric in the other, obvious oxidation, water like thinness, and no ability to form head in both.

On my screen it's faint yellow, faint gray, faint green, and I was trying to reproduce a strange opalescent haze. I expected the feel to be ropey, but it was just like water.

I can't properly describe the color I'm talking about. So I poured a little sample of a blonde, took a photo, then using photo editor I adjusted blur, hue, and saturation until the photo shows what im talking about.

Should look sorta like this


But looked just like this

Possible. They didn't taste sour, but that doesn't mean anything. Isovaleric indicated contamination but DMS doesn't. Hmmm

It's hard to describe. The faint green aspect of it might be blue-gray combined with yellow. Dunno for sure.

I was quite impressed though, it can't be easy to get isovaleric into an American  blonde... lambic maybe, but...

I'm curious if anyone might know leading causes of a really strange off color? I judged at Best of Craft this weekend and we had two beers, one a Cream Ale and one an American Blonde, that had a very strange color problem. They were both about 3-4srm, mostly yellow, but with a gray-green tint. Both moderately hazy, very low head. Both oxydized, one had strong canned veggy DMS on nose and flavor. The other had strong cheesy sweat sock isovaleric acid on nose, and musty flavor. Both very thin but not dry.

The other two judges thought they were dishwatery. Other than lacking the soap of dishwater, that was fairly accurate. I have no idea who the brewery was and don't care to know. But none of us could think of how you could get that bizzar color. My wildest guess would be some unknown contamination.

Anyone ever experience this? Ideas on cause?

So Denver was able to Google "how to win a football game" and NE couldn't?  That is unfair!

If I enter, it will be to support the cause. Might have 4-6 to chose from

Heading home from judging Best of Craft. We had 17 tables of 3 judges each and did 1200 entries in 3 sessions. What impressed me was Randy Scorby's table doing 74 IPAd in one day. He's a machine!

Good point Matt. In taste analysis of beer, lack of confidence probably means second guessing. Something people who are in the process of learning new skills tend to do. In other words, I still believe the stat of judges in training being the worst at accuracy in blind triangle testing makes perfect sense.
