Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Kill temp for yeast
« Last post by RuthanneAzia on Today at 02:18:52 AM »
So what is the recommended temp and time for pasteurisation to kill all yeast? I'm aware of temps needed to kill spoilage microbes, but is the required temp lower for just brewing yeasts?

Ingredients / Dehusked Carafa - Rochefort clone
« Last post by Hand of Dom on Today at 01:37:32 AM »
I'm planning on brewing a small batch of the Hermann Holtropp Rochefort clone this weekend, but have realised that I don't have any Carafa special I.  I do have special II and III.  Rather than having to order some, am I right in thinking that I could just use a smaller quantity of the II or III to produce the same colour addition?  Given that it only uses 50g to begin with, I can't see that being a problem.

What does the hive mind have to say on this?

I did a 10 minute rest for ferulic acid (locked at 112), and used only about 52% wheat malt to maximize the production of it.  My fermentation temperature was 64 degrees.  The product had a very clove like aroma with substantial banana flavor.  I didn't do any yeast stress procedures, besides the colder than normal temperatures, but it was the best balanced German wheat beer that I've ever made.

I have tried fermentation in a keg twice with a cut tube and the tube gets clogged.  Anyone have any tips on how to prevent this problem?  I have even tried pushing co2 down the serving disconnect without success.

I have used perle in lots of lagers and have always been happy with the clean bittering I get from it.  In some recent pale ales I have done, I have been doing CTZ and cascade with some other hop and the CTZ dankness is very apparent even in small amounts (1oz CTZ against 4oz of cascade/other stuff).

I have not used herkules, so I can't comment on that compared to perle.

Perle is a fantastic clean bittering hop.

I won't mention names, but the person responsible is certainly free to chime in. There are a lot of good guys  on this board. A couple years go, when I moved into my bachelor pad, one of you sent me a very nice care package. Prior to that some years ago, I was laid off work and some one from here had a sack of two row sent to my house and another hooked me up with a ton of hops.
  Then, just last week another sent me a grain mill to use in my in the works brewery. I want to thank you all again. This place is like family.

wiring and controls are done and it's made  successful test run. Now I just need to make it look pretty with some diamond plate and tie up a few wires.

Wondering when it starts dying as temp raises.
Other Fermentables / Re: great apples this year

Unlike last summer, we got some rain this year and while it was hot, it wasn't a desert like last year.  All of our fruit trees have bumper crops.  Got 75 lb. of pears from a tree that usually yields about 2 lb.  All of our apple trees are loaded.  About time to break out the cider press!

Bad years are followed by good years, weather permitting. When MI lost almost all of the apples and cherries to unseasonable warm weather in March followed by a freeze, the next year was a record crop. The trees have some catching up to do.  ;)
