I had a Hefeweizen with H2S and SO2 notes.  I was sure they would age out eventually, but I wanted to serve the beer next week.  Also, I didn't want to wait long given the style of beer.

Looking for ways to remove the sulfur, I came across this topic and decided to give it a try.  My approach was to dunk a piece of copper pipe into the keg about a dozen times.  It seems to have worked.  The H2S is completely gone.  I think I still detect a little SO2 in the aroma and the finish.

I had a feeling the lack of copper on the hot side of my brewery would bite me someday.  Looks like I need to toss that copper pipe in the boil from now on.

Brought a keg to an event and forgot this key item. Anyone have one I can borrow today and return tomorrow?

The Pub / Forced inventory control

Mostly some crappy bottles of mead, but also the last bottle of a really good oatmeal stout.  Worst part has been cleanup.  The concrete floor is easy, but it went under all my refrigeration units.

Equipment and Software / Brewery lighting

What's the best kind of lighting to install in a brewery?  I'm considering a number of factors, including

  • - low UV emission to avoid skunking finished beer
  • - appropriate color temperature for observing beer when tasting
  • - low heat emission since I'll be working under them

I've found it hard to get the data above on various products, especially the spectral data.
