Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Dry yeast in a German pils
« on: April 29, 2010, 10:19:11 PM »
Unfortunately you are not going to find a very good dry yeast for a German pils. S-189 will work "ok", but no where near as good as a good liquid yeast.
I am currently enjoying my 1st Pilsner brewed with this exact strain. S-189 it is so convenient to utilize and attain
the proper pitch rates.  I dry hopped the beer and have been lagering it about 4 months is a really nice beer.
That yeast is prolly the reason, even tho this was the 1st time I built water from R.O. for brewing.

Not brewing for Nat'l Homebrew Day, BUT, I will be enjoying some
homebrew that has finally come of age...THE MAIBOCK....
after all, it is the 1st of May.... 8)

All Things Food / Re: For Weazletoe.....CANDIED Bacon

Well, Barry since you never let me know how this was....I am making my own
just to try it out....mmmm....candied bacon (with cayenne).

AND I ain't tellin nuthin about it till you post how YOU like the stuff.

Are you in

I'm about 15 minutes into the mash on a saison - finally going to try that 3711.
Well I give high marks for that yeast. It will prolly be my Saison goto yeast of choice
from now on...unless....they get a vss that I can't resist....I also liked 3726 only
the high temps were kind of appalling...but the end was yummo good.

Edit:changed 3724 to 3726....BIG difference. I did not care for the "sour apple" of 3724.
so to avoid this confusion in the future, it will be 3711 and I will like it!

Ok, the rochefort was off on the numbers a little I hit 1.070 and was trying for .060
whould be beer if the yeast can surmount the sugar. I gave it wyeast nutrient and
plenty of pure O2.... maybe it will ferment out good....dunno.

I am into the mash on a barleywine.  This will be a long brew day but I plan to get em
both into the fermenters.

2 brews on the agenda b/c the weather is yuk

Gotta brew some more rochefort to fill the harvest space left
after I pull 5 gallons out of the Oak Solera...


I wanna get a big Barleywine going so It can sit long time in 2ndary

but NOT without a few bumps...

Here is what I got when I tried to delete my ad...

You cannot delete your own topics in this board.  


And I realize that is because they are topics and not just thread postings.

Another user friendly thing would be this
a filter/sort mode  to glean out the author's own postings.

Well I have a couple ads up in "wanted to buy"  and wanted
to delete the ads cause they are no longer relevant.

I finally had to settle for the resolution of just changing words
in the posts to stuff like...."disregard".  I clicked every thing
on the page to try to find the erase icon and no luck.  I see
other people doing similar things.

This aspect is not the most user friendly thing....just sayin.

Beer Recipes / Re: sour cherry rochefort brett in oak
« on: April 22, 2010, 10:17:23 AM »
I was advised to get the mahlab "whole" NOT ground because it looses flavor rapidly
after grinding.  I thought It would be no problem to put the whole seeds thru the
grain mill....Then I was gonna give em a little bath in some everclear just to be careful...

I got my oak cask from Vadai Wine
And I highly recommend them.

Frank Zappa was a genius.
Then I reached down and I scooped down and I gathered up a generous mitten full of the deadly yellow snow crystals
and proceeded to rub it into his beady little eyes with a vigorous circular motion

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: The Correct Way to Use Polyclar?
« on: April 21, 2010, 11:16:26 AM »
Last time I used poly clar, I also needed to make an addition
of water and dry hop  a beer that was too high in FG.  I made the poly clar mix
with distilled water in a Cornie Keg, then carbonated the water/fining agent
to remove oxygen from the water added the hop ball, Then racked the
hazy pilsner into that keg.  Samples now showing hop ghosties floating around
but the haze is GONE, and the beer tastes great.

so just sayin you may want to get "the carbonator" and mix your poly clar in
a vessel that will allow you to carb it up before you add anything (O2) to your beer.

User friendly stuff....on the bb

Like one click to show all of my posts.

Like  in the for sale and wanted zones, I have difficulty erasing my posts...
so I have been changing the heading to read...disregard or void or such when the
post really needs to be deleted.
