Kegging and Bottling / biofine
« on: March 31, 2018, 02:09:32 PM »
Has any one used biofine? I thinking about trying it. My idea is to transfer the beer into the secondary for 2 weeks then cold crash it for about 4 days. When I cold crash I was thinking about adding the Biofine at that time then i will keg it after the 4 days. Is this a good way to do it or no? Also how much biofine do you use for 5 gallons? The 2 beers i will do this with are a ESB and a Cream Ale.

All Grain Brewing / ESB recipe
« on: March 28, 2018, 06:49:09 PM »
I have never made an ESB but what do you guys think of what I came up with?

5 gal batch
10 lbs marris otter
1 lb crystal 60L
5 oz crystal 120L

1 oz Willamette at 60 mins
.5 oz mosaic at 15 mins
.5 mosaic at 0 mins

white lab  californian ale

I will also use phosphoric acid because our ph is about 7 and i will use super moss and yeast nutriance
I possibly will make a yeast starter too. Iv never used gelatin for finings in the secondary but im thinking about trying that too.

The color of it doesn't seem like fits the stout maybe not dark enough... but after reading the the BJCP guideline for an Irish stout the taste fits perfect for it!

what kind of beer do you guys think this recipe falls into? I was shooting for a stout but im not sure it fits in there apter seeing the color and tasting it.

5 gal

9 lbs 2 row
1 lb crystal 80
12 oz chocolate malt
8 oz black barley
8 oz of oats

1/2 oz magnum at 60 mins and 1/2 oz kent at 15

when bottling this i made a cold brew and added it.

Would this fall into some kind of special beer category or what do you guys think this falls into?
Thanks for the help and I willing to hear what you guys think about the recipe and take suggestions.

Going Pro / Interview questions.
« on: January 19, 2018, 03:45:44 PM »
So there is a new brewery opening up in my hometown. It will be the only one here. I have an interview for the head brewing position and I am wondering what I should expect to get asked and what I should be prepared to answer. I have taken a day brewing school so i have used the equipment and I am somewhat formilar with the commercial equipment but still need to lear a lot more!

Thank you for your help.
