Sounds like possibly oxidation to me. I'm not exactly sure about the science but seems like I remember reading somewhere that oxidation can cause solventy notes, especially when coupled with higher fermentation temps. But empirical evidence suggest to me that oxidation alone can cause this, even with low fermentation temps. I've seen this happen in some of my beers as well, especially in IPA's. I also wonder if the hop compounds can become oxidized and cause the flavor you speak of.

Yeah, that can go just about anywhere though - even the best beer towns. But no worries, I just wanted to put my beer idea out there.  ;)

Ingredients / Calcium Carbonate
« on: July 11, 2012, 09:16:54 PM »
I don't recall ever hearing that calcium carbonate can enhance the sweetness of beers, but that doesn't mean there isn't come truth to that. To answer your question, yes, it can certainly affect your pH and I wouldn;t just go arbitrarily throwing it in any recipe, except perhaps dark beers - but even then you really are better off knowing if you need it or not. Most likely,for dark beeers, you  will.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Angry Orchard Crisp Apple
« on: July 11, 2012, 07:21:31 PM »
One of the beers I have brewed several times is a smoked apple amber, basically an alt in which I smoke the entire grain bill over apple then sparge with apple cider from a local farm. The beer does set a pectic haze, but I'm thinking about trying some pectic enzyme in it next time.

Just thought I'd share that since it is a beer with apple in it. I've even gone as far as adding smoked apples to the mash.

The Pub / Read any good book lately?
« on: July 10, 2012, 06:23:34 PM »
I am currently reading The Last Full Measure by Jeff Shaara

How do you like it?  I just started The Killer Angels, which I've had on my shelf for a while, but I can't seem to lock into it.

I like Jeff Shaara but none of his books have been as good as his father's "Killer Angels: IMO. Last Full Measure was certainly one of his best, though.

General Homebrew Discussion / optimal dry hop temperature?
« on: July 10, 2012, 05:32:47 PM »
Yes, thanks for the reminder on cold temps during dry hopping. The only time I did that I got lots of veg flavors and little  actual hop aroma.

General Homebrew Discussion / optimal dry hop temperature?

Warmer temps (68 -72) will extract the oils faster. I always dry hop at around 68.

Yeast and Fermentation / Help my Kolsch finish fermenting
« on: July 09, 2012, 02:05:23 PM »
I've said it many times fore, that strain will stall if you don't warm it up over 62 degrees near the end.

But, realistically, I don't think you could notice much difference between 1.013 and, say, 1.011. It will taste less sweet when it is carbonated. Carb it up and drink it!

If you want do do fruit do it as a secondary addition for the most flavor. Add it after all or most of the primary fermentation is finished.
