I was in a pool once.  In Hawaii.

Yeah, you seem like the kinda guy who would be in the pool rather than at the beach.
Like you never experimented with pools when you were younger.

Gene pools?

General Homebrew Discussion / Soapy off flavor
« on: January 10, 2013, 11:16:23 AM »
Noonan stated that higher sulfate levels balance hop soapy flavors.

"Hoppy beers sometimes have an unpleasant soapy flavor. Calcium sulfate eliminates soapy flavors and accentuates a clean, piquant hop bitterness."

I'm betting you hit the nail. I have not had my water tested in a long, long time and the local water is sourced differently.

You could add some gypsum to water to dissolve well, then do a little experiment adding sulfated water to a pint.

I was wondering if I could just add the gypsum directly to the pint, but I'll try the dissolving idea. Thanks!

They were from two different pitches - in fact, I switched yeast strains on the last one. Definitely not a contamination flavor I am picking up.

My last 2 IPAs have both had a soapy off flavor. I realize that this can be caused by autolysis but I don't think this is the case. The only thing different I did in these last 2 recipes was swap our cascades for centennial since I was out. The cascades weren't super fresh but they smelled fine.

Anyone have any ideas?

So, I am in a pool where you have to pick one team each week to win but can't pick the same team twice. Thinking about taking San Fran this weekend. What do you guys think?

I have not had much to bullsh!t about this year. Except we did manage to beat the Steelers. But that was a long time ago. I was at the beach, IIRC.

Hell, it's January 9th and I went surfing today.  No big ting bruddah (sept da waves,  BIG!)

I'm going to start deleting every post you make about Hawaii. :P

I really didn't think it was that bad and would have thought almost nothing of it if the media hadn't made such a big deal out of it. She is extremely attractive. What did he say, really?

Going Pro / vendors / manufacturers

As Leos said, it depends how much money you have. We started with very little and decided to invest our money first into fermentors and refrigeration (glycol). You probably will find a better deal if you shop vendors rather than going to a single vendor for everything.

We had out brew house built from dairy tanks by a guy Wisconsin. It ain't perfect, but it works and was under 15K for a 15 bbl brewhouse.

Our first batch of fermentors came from a company in Fla who I'd prefer not to recommend. Second batch were used, and now we have three 30 bbl tanks from GW Kent that are close to flawless.

Our first glycol unit came from afore mentioned company in Fla, but the second is coming from pro-refrigeration (this week, as a matter of fact).

Our next brewhouse will come from Premier. I can tell you the cheap stuff works but with lots of headaches. When you go with the high end you really do get what you pay for. That said, it can be difficult to start out without cutting some corners unless you have serious $$$.

Ingredients / FRESH MILLED GRAIN

I disagree that it is a big problem. I think that as long as it is stored cool and sealed it can last for a couple months crushed with minimal loss of flavor. Probably even longer.

Yeah, that sucks. He is a fun player to watch. But it looks like the game has gotten too rough to have running QBs anymore. You need to sit in the pocket and throw darts to have any type of longevity. That said, I think he could be a pocket QB.

I thought it was going to be a "slug fest" like all the "analysts" predicted.

Definitely looks like an infection to me. Ring around the inside of a bottle is a tell tale sign.
