Other Fermentables / Trying a Wild Plum Melomel
« on: November 28, 2010, 09:37:14 AM »
I calculated the O.G. at 1.096
3 quarts of wild plum juice from our tree
2 quarts of Light clover local honey ....I mean light!
1 Lb of Jaggery
and 2 quarts of water
Yeast nutrients
Pectic Enzyme
and Lalvin  Bourgovin RC 212

Only gonna make a couple gallons but I did not want to waste the
plum harvest since SHMBO did not really get it together to make jelly like
we usually do.

Edit: It's In the fermenter.  Pitched 3 packs of dry yeast rehydrated in warm water
got a LONG  lag it seems like...slow to launch

Well this seasonal is back on the shelves here and dang I like this beer.
I will stock up on it and hoard it because the season will soon be gone.
I dig the flavor of the Sterling Hops in this beer.  Recommend if you have it
available in your vicinity.  all ten of my thumbs point skyward

Classifieds / Hop Swap again
« on: November 04, 2010, 09:58:41 AM »
I have hops that I got from Hops Direct they are this year's crop all are leaf hops.
I packaged the unwanted portions back in vacuum packs by rolling the original mylar
and sliding the rolls into a tube of vacuum seal food saver.  I would venture a conservative
guess that each original mylar bag was only open for 20 minutes max...resealed and
placed into the freezer. 

I have about a half pound of each of these variatels  vac packed in half pound packages
way too many for my brew year

Sterling
Columbus
Hallertau (GR) ...I guess that means german imported....
Cluster

Please consider a swap with me if you have any fresh hops to part with
I prefer leaf or plug commercial grown.

Yeast and Fermentation / Growing up an alien wild yeast from scratch
« on: October 30, 2010, 06:24:01 PM »
anybody done this or have a process that works well??
I have a culture that I want to try to build up to beer fermentation levels
It is on the stir plate and I have been slowly trying to build the numbers of
yeasties by doubling the pitch rates over and over...cept I got side lined and
forgot to proceed and the yeast sat a long time in the fridge....I am trying to
give it a start again..we will see...I have minimal activity in a quart of starter wert.
