Really nice equipment. I like looking at beer making and processing equipment, it gives me ideas on bettering my process. Thanks for sharing.  8)

I use malt, hops, yeast, and water.  So if your doing that in your recipe, make sure you credit me ???

There's no way for that to be possible because that one belongs to me.  ;D

I guess it's just good gamesmanship to give credit if you have the opportunity, but there should be a complexity or something special about the brew to even think you deserve credit IMO.


You mean like brewing with "no pants".  ;D

Will a hi OG beer still finish with a low FG.

It can, but my experiences is that if I start with a 100+ OG, I really don't like it to finish under the mid 20s.

My last Barleywine started at 1.106 and finished 1.023 using a yeast cake of WLP001 from an APA.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: stuff I'm finding under the microscope

I think if we knew what we inhaled and ingested daily on a microscopic level, we would all change our ways.

Not to mention the fact of what we sleep with....  :o

Kai,

Here's a Fuller's yeast sample.



and some Brettanomyces. In most beer styles, Brettanomyces is viewed as a contaminant and the characteristics it imparts are considered unwelcome "off-flavors". However, in some styles, particularly certain traditional Belgian ales, it is appreciated and encouraged

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Open Fermentation vs Closed Fermentation

I'm no expert on open fermentation and frankly it kind of scares me, but apparently it is happening everyday in breweries around the world as this picture shows.

I beleive the krausen layer on top somewhat protects the fermenting beer from the detrimental effects of oxidation during the process.

I'm getting ready to brew a Barleywine, maybe this weekend. I am going to use US-05. I really liked my last recipe using all Centennial and Cascade. I am going to use Zuess, Centennial and Cascade for a total of about 90 IBU's in this recipe. The grain bill for 5 gallons consists of:

Amount Item Type % or IBU
20.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (3.5 SRM) Grain 78.43 %
3.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 11.76 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 3.92 %
1.00 lb Rye Malt (4.7 SRM) Grain 3.92 %
0.50 lb Caramunich Malt (56.0 SRM) Grain 1.96 %

I beleive credit should be given wher credit is due even if the recipe was inspired by another brewer. Unfortunately, I don't think it happens very much.

Samichlaus comes to mind as the "Worlds strongest Lager". I haven't tried it, but it's on the list. Also Dogfish Head 240, which is very hard to find.

High gravity is a relative term. Depends on your definition.

mmm... Barleywine tasting. Sounds good. I tried the 2008 Bigfoot and it was great. I think I like my recipe better though. Better take a cab Denny.  ;D
