Kegging and Bottling / Re: counter pressure filling
« Last post by santoch on July 21, 2017, 08:42:55 PM »
High and normal fills are normal in competition.  I don't think fill level affects the score unless the fill is low, which tends to make the judge think that the brewer doesn't know what they are doing.

A proper judge will not deduct any points for fill level. A low fill could result in improper carbonation levels though per style which may be reflected in point deductions on the scoresheet.

Different strokes for different folks. Almost 2.5# dry hops for 10 gallon. I'd taste it, but I would not brew it

Does any of this help determine  FG?

Well, the fermentability of the wort is set by the β rests in particular so yes it does. Although the only way to accurately determine final gravity is a FFT. I do one for every batch.

The GC asked about this when it was posted. AHA staff confirmed - that's not a typo.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Alt beer wyeast2124

I used 34/70 dry yeast for an Alt and fermented it at 60F and it seemed almost as clean as if I'd fermented at 50F. It is a very tolerant yeast. 34/70 is supposedly the same as 2124.

Finished up my bottle of Wildcatter 8 Yr tonight. A darn nice glass as all the Frank-lin products tend to be. This one says Elite Brands, At 90 proof I found at best with a cube. I think the price point was something like $35.

Working on a binnys barrel select knob creek single barrel. It's tasty but at 120 proof it's warm. Rocks and water and there's still some heat and a ton of flavor.

WY 2124 loves 60F and it does a great job. Ferment it as a "hybrid" beer.
