General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Boil....hard or slow.....

You want to be between 10 and 15% boil-off per hour.
This is interesting number because commercial brewers are targeting 3% evaporation rate.
I read the Siebel document.

Once I got Global Munich from Midwest Supply.
To my recolection it was 12 to 15L.
It made great Dunkel.

Does yeast stress cause more sulfer to be produced?

That is my understanding that stressed yeast is producing sulphur.
What would be the stress factors?
Underpitching is one of them.
How about fermenting too cold?

Currently 22 degF in Green Bay area of Wisconsin.  We had approx. 6 in. of snowfall since yesterday evening.  After this storm passes we will be experiencing high temps in the teens and lows in the single digits.  It is finally winter in Wisconsin.   :)

By last account we got 22 inches of snow.
I have spend some quality time over the weekend cleaning up the snow.
Now it is 1F.

Looks like winter out there.

They sure seem to have a lot of quality issues. I'm not sure I'd want that constantly repeated on TV.
A little drama in the show.

Not sure about that.
Link you posted is just analyses sheet that you get from supplier company like brewers supply group:

or County Malt Supply group:

There is not a lot of info about it.

Would different fermentation schedule help with elimination sulfur in the first place?

Denny, do you know if Gambrinus use to be Canadian Malting?

That's what I seem to recall, David.  I don't know if that's still true.

I do not think so. Gambrinus Malting to my knowledge is relatively small operation.

My feeling is that the books, self-published as they are via lulu, are all way too expensive.
You can get a PDF copy for $8.25.

That's probably what I will opt for. I'm curious about what he has to say on a topic on which I have seen a lot of passionate discussion.


Here is a coupon code for 20% off.
Coupon is valid till end of the month and is valid in US only (if that matters for electronic purchase)
