I tried stirring with a plastic fork as well and had better luck with the copper.

Kinda shoots a big hole in the metallic off-flavor theory, ay?
an update on this beer and a question:
My fermentor got up to 64 for ~6 hrs yesterday (forgot to swap out an ice pack in the water bath) after having sat at 61 since early Monday when active fermentation was underway. Was I enough through the ester-producing primary phase by yesterday (36-40 hrs) to have avoided any unwanted esters for this one?
Can't do anything about it now, so I'm relaxing and having a homebrew, just wondering if my expectation of a nice, clean Alt isn't realistic.
I coarsely chop all my whole hops to improve the utilization and reduce the wort absorption. I use a cheap food processor from Walmart just for hops.
You don't have a pet osprey named Brian do you?
Happy Umbilicord Day! You now owe everyone a beer! that wished you Happy Umbilicord Day! start pouring!
I happen to love mariachi. but apparently I can't spell pinnacle.
that's ok you can tell me about polka and I'll tell you when you've misspelled pinnacleI have a plate of tortilla chips and guacamole, and a chilled glass of reposado in front of me as I type, so at this point, I'd be rather down with that. Sad that it is sort of "food music", much like German oompah band music. In the right context its spot on.
I never hated polka or mariachi, but I wouldn't say that I actively pursued listening to it until a year ago or so. Now I have a mariachi channel on pandora that I listen to with it in shuffle mode. I seriously like brass and always have, so polka was a little bit easier.
