The Pub / Re: Loss of a great brewery
« on: January 18, 2018, 07:20:00 PM »
No!  Solid brewery with a big well-known name.  I've been fond of their pales, IPAs, and the Brown Dog.  Just like the beloved Hostess Twinkie, hopefully someone will work to keep the brand going, and hopefully the quality as well.

There is so much going on now with yeast genome studies, it will take some time for the information to be disseminated.

I have seen that WLP-800, the Pilsner Urquell strain was found to be an ale strain.

I have heard the same thing.

Denny, this episode sounds like a must-listen!

For whatever it's worth, I'd already decided that I really do not like Saf"lager" W-34/70 at any ferm temperature.  It's just not a great lager yeast, not in my experience.  It's had plenty of chances but never has impressed as well as WLP830, WLP833, Wyeast 2206, or Wyeast 2308.  It ain't the same.  I'm trying hard to find good dry yeasts, but... this one didn't cut it for me.  Soon I shall try S-189.

Beer Recipes / Re: Is this overboard??? IPA hop schedule.

Would I be bittering too much for the style to take 1 oz chinook from the dry hop and add it to the 60 min boil add?

The maximum IBUs any beer can have is about 80-90.  I haven't run all the math but I believe it won't matter if you put more at 60 minutes because I think you already hit the max possible.

What if I up the chinook by an ounce at 5 mins to offset the effect of the sorachi?  Or maybe swap the chinook and sorachi flavor additions, making chinook at 10 mins and sorachi at 5?

Naw..... either reduce the amount of Sorachi, or don't.  I understand you are trying to use full packets, so if that is more important to you than beer flavor, then use the whole pack.

The Sorachi Ace will overpower the other hops.  Maybe take SA down to just 0.5 oz.  However if you love SA as I do, the full ounce is good.

I agree with moving some of the Chinook from boil to dry hop, that's a good idea.

Indeed we do!  Taste is subjective.

I've made a rye porter with 40% rye that was in my Top 3 homebrews of all time.  You can take it as high as you dare, it will be great.

Double the rye, and then now you're talking.  :)

Leave it in primary, it will turn out great.

He must have been bit by some other technical or mathematical bug, because the condition of obsession doesn't just disappear, it's not possible -- it just passes from one thing to another.  I wonder what he is obsessed about now that he switched gears with such ease.  Must be something pretty dang cool.

No one organization or individual should be respected as an omniscient authority on homebrewing.  It's a hobby.  And it is a young hobby.  We can all learn from one another.  Mistakes will be made.  Usually we will drink the mistakes and just brew some more.

Cheers all.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bottling: Adding additional priming sugar?
« on: January 11, 2018, 12:36:14 PM »
I've done this on rare occasion.  However I used about 1/2 teaspoon of sugar per bottle.  I wonder if maybe you didn't use enough to have any effect, since the act of popping the bottles open releases much of the existing CO2 right off the bat.

That seems like too much water for the partigyle unless you're making a big batch of it.  Remember, there will be mno grain absorption for the second beer.

You really think so?  I haven't run any of the numbers but this looks to me like a pretty good plan, skyler.
