General Homebrew Discussion / Re: cold side aeration and staling reactions

I think we need to understand the oxidation process and/or mechanism. Oxidation should start immediately and continue until all available oxygen is consumed either by the yeast, converted to hydrogen peroxide, etc...

The known effects are browning, haze and cardboard like off-flavors but check out this study of packaged beer that indicates there is production of CL which can cause some of the effects we know so well.

Weaz...man that is quite honestly the funniest bunch of musicians dressed up as mummies in a studio I have ever seen.


This statement leads me to believe that it is not the ONLY  bunch of musicians dressed up in a studio you have ever seen.  :-\

No Weaz.. these are the only ones.  ;)

The general consensus has been to take a gallon of first runnings, reduce it to a quart and add it back to the boil.
I did a 10 gallon batch and turned 2 gallons of first runnings into a little less than a quart, it had the consistency of LME.

This is what I believe to be the optimum method based on feedback from fellow brewers.

All Grain Brewing / Re: "Belgian" spice flavor wierdness

I would eliminate any chlorine in your cleaning/sanitizing process and stick with just starsan solution for sanitizing. Boiling your water should drive off the chlorine and/or campden tabs will work too. I would also consider using distilled and/or bottled water if you continue to have a problem, but you need to determine the source of your problem by eliminating one variable at a time.
