My one time experience with this was cured by RDWHAHB
and just giving the yeast more time to clean up

Also, it has an impact on hop utilization, and I figure my hopping based on the wort gravity with the sugar in there.  

I tend to do the opposite here Denny and try to get more hop components into the unladen wert
before I laden the wert with additional sugar...

I have a sparkling mead that I used the plastic champagne closure with
the wire very well IMO.

I will set my additions out on a table with my timer and brew utensils.
Bittering hops in a bowl
Aroma hops in a Different bowl
Sugars one more bowl
Belgian spices if brewing that another bowl...
final additions like whirlfloc and nutrients in another little shotglass
Then I just go down the line up and usually don't forget anything

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: S23 Lager Yeast from Fermentis

The longer this sits in my garage in the Keg, the nicer it gets.
Tutti Fruti is not apparent at this point. Some Haze but
from day to day this too seems to be going bye bye...
Kind of a roller coaster ride with this yeast but in the end...not too shabby.

I cried too. At my first sip. Then I threw up in my mouth a little.
Did you relocate to Idaho yet?

Curse my pin locks with no relief valves! Guess I could always put a lock on the gas post.
Yep just do the liquid fills the keg, the gas will exit the lock...

All Things Food / Re: What kind of beer would you serve with BBQ Chicken?
« on: February 13, 2010, 07:43:22 PM »
I'm sipping my Sour Saison, and I gotta say, this would go great with
some kind of BBQ chicken! It is in the line of Orval...and a lil Roselare...
and of course Saison fermented with WY3726 which is a tart yeast.

So I suppose sweet bbq chicken would be a contrast with the sourness
of this beer....but not an unwelcomed contrast.

Hi Jeff,

The best I've made though uses Young's Double Chocolate Stout and vanilla ice cream; DELICIOUS!!!!!

    Janis    ;D
I drank my Young's and envisioned this lovely combo....Now, I will have to try it...never had the courage
to until this juncture  ;D
