There are a lot of incidents where you could have wild yeast contamination. The multiple rackings, adding fruit, using your mouth to siphon, etc. I rehydrate my dry yeast, never heat the honey, sanitize all my equipment, add yeast nutrient all at once or staggered for 3-5 days, and only rack once after primary fermentation is done (around 3 -4 weeks). Hope that helps.

That sounds good. I haven’t made a Vienna Lager in a couple of years. Maybe, I’ll make one in a few weeks. This weekend I’m going to brew Denny’s Noti Brown with different hops.

The question should maybe have been asked, do you want a German version or an American version?

Too much Carared.  Take that down to 1/4 lb or less, or zero.

No salt additions necessary or recommended.
I agree 100%. I say zero. I don’t care for caramel, sweet flavor in these styles.

I'm the other side of the fence. I had three last night and found it delicious. Plan on at least another three today. Really got my juices flowing for O'fest beers this year.

I think it is quite malty. IMO everyone should stack it up against their favorite O'fest in a blind taste tests. Now to be fair what I am drinking was packaged on 07/23/18 and may have been made in NC as opposed to CA.
I have to say that I liked it and it's much better than most American Oktoberfest beers (and I got it two weeks after packaging), but I REALLY liked last year's version.

Dopplebock is nice in the colder months. I've used this recipe with good results  55% Munich 40% Pils 5% Caramunich OG around 1.085  German Noble hops to around 25 IBU's and Wyeast 2206 (I used a yeast cake from a Munich Dunkel).

Equipment and Software / Re: Best grain mill available today.

Has anyone bought a Millar's Barley Mill?  I think they've only got the one model and while it's got everything you need, hopper, bucket, etc., I think it's kind of pricey at $280-300.  Would be interested to hear anyone's input on it though.
I have one of their older models that was around $170 and it works much better than my old Barley Crusher.

I don't always drink a liter of Weissbier on a Wednesday, but when I do I'm better for it!
Beautiful foam!

Great episode and I think I might try that mashing technique on my annual Barleywine.

Beer Recipes / Re: Kolsch or Cream Ale?
« on: July 11, 2018, 05:08:51 PM »
I like a Kolsch to have a subtle white wine flavor from the yeast. Cream Ales can have corn in them, but not necessary. Maybe have some others taste it as well and I think you’re on the right track with entering it on how it tastes.
