I think i cam to the conclusion that I would brew at home again as long as I had a fancy, automated system.  ;)

Thanks guys! Here's hoping home brewing becomes legal in Alabama this year. The bill has passed the senate and is heading for the house. Then maybe I'll get a full blown Sabco system and some heated-cooled more beer conicals and start home brewing again. ;)

I'd highly recommend http://www.plastickegs.com/ - you can't beat the price even for used. The only issue I have with them is that about one out of twenty is a leaker, but they will replace those.

Yeah, I don't really care for the select much. They have similar characteristics but the Spalter tastes better. I ordered a shipment of spalter from Hop Union last year and they sent me select. I bought a bunch of it and it took 6 months to go through it. As soon as I could I switched back to the spalter and my alt tasted much better to me.

I love spalter for my alt, hallertauer cultivar for my kolsch. Spalt to me is a more "sturdy" hop. You probably want something more delicate for a kolsch. That's why I like the crystal, it's very delicate, especially for an American hop. I do all FWH crystal and a smal aroma addition at WP.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Which yeast?
« on: May 05, 2012, 03:52:10 AM »
Glycerol production during fermentation will vary according to yeast strain and fermentation conditions.  The more there is the fuller the mouthfeel.  It may be something else, but this could be the reason for the difference.

I figured some smart person would chime in with at least part of the answer. ;) now, how does one control glycerol formation, or is it totally dependent on yeast strain?

FWIW Nateo, I think you are 100% correct and I think it is mostly yeast driven. Some beers ferment out super dry but the yeast flavor makes them taste "fuller" than they are according to our methods of measuring. I really don't know what the chemistry is behind it but I do find it interesting.
