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  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.

What kind of beer would you make with this?  A super light colored pils?
add something for body....or some funky color for punked out beer?

Plus where every leg meets the dolly, I put hurricane angle clips to further reinforce
the stress and strain of rolling an elevated 100# of beer ( its actually150# beer + Barrel)

Reading this post, and looking at a yeast cake I need to harvest from,
I do NOT see where the OP's original question was answered....

Where in those strata are the most yeast?

Also, you don't need to say rod bacillus, because bacilli are defined by having a rod shape.

I post this to illustrate my thinking, not to pose an argument, but this is why I said "rod bacteria"
I am far far from any type of microbiologist.

Uh ....spirochetes(sp) are bacteria...not rod shaped

. .assuming it's physically anchored to the moving dolly.

Yes I put long lag screws up thru each "leg" physically anchoring it to the dolly.

  Lately I've been experimenting more with distilled hop oil for aroma as well...I'm getting pretty close to the result I'm really looking for with that. 

That would be "hop shots" ?

My first dry hop beer (pils) tastes really nice....just has these hop ghosts
floating around in the brew. I know this is normal but the hop ball containing one oz
of hop flower is allowing ghostly floaties....normal???  May go away with time?
I plan to leave the hops in for now....can't hurt anything. real PITA to get them out
of the keg....

The trash factor probably does not matter to you folks... :o

Cynmar, not a HBS, ships with starch based packing peanuts. They dissolve in water and you could even mash them. I’m not sure how food grade they are but wouldn’t it be cool to brew a packing peanut beer?

Kai pnt br...ewwwwwww....
