Cargill's German Saltzgitter pilsner malt for the 1.005 vs. Bestmalz pils for the 1.012.
I bet that contributed some. I get different efficiencies from different malts. So, stands to reason there would be differences in fermentability also.

Thanks for the correction. Good to know the proper spelling. Now if I just knew how to actually say it. I have an idea, but it's probably wrong. A friend told me that the name Leos is pronounced "lee-oh-sh", is that right?

Yeah, looks solid. What did the SRM calc to, out of curiosity?

I'm unable to verify the SRM from where I'm sitting at work but assuming your calcs are correct...

Looks great to me.  Enjoy it.

I assumed so, but thought I'd ask. Thanks for sharing your beers. Na Zdravie!

"Na zdraví" is correct form, but still I'm shocked you know it ;)

Ingredients / Re: suggestions for food (beer) safe wetting agent?
« Last post by jjflash on July 26, 2016, 11:22:43 AM »
Is your water from a well or municipal?

Also, wouldn't a wetting agent be detrimental to head retention?

Good quality community well water.

Would especially like to use a wetting agent in my sanitizers; peracetic acid and Starsan - to get them to drop clean from glass and plastic rather than beading up, especially vessels used in yeast propogation.  Not sure about effect on head retention. I suspect residue would be minimal in final beer product.  Willing to try.

Equipment and Software / Re: Favorite type of wort chiller ?
« Last post by ynotbrusum on July 26, 2016, 11:00:15 AM »
For five gallon batches - the Hydra.  For 10ers, I often go with the Jamil recirc then finish with a counter flow with an ice bath pre-chiller for the well water.  Needless to say I get to lager temps pretty darn quick.  Just depends on the outside temp and how much work I want to do in the clean up... Time saved chilling usually is eaten up by the extra cleaning time.

The Pub / Re: Espresso machines

I don't keep coffee in the freezer for a few reasons. First, I only roast enough for a few days. Secondly, as the coffee rests and degasses the flavor changes. Coffees like Ethiopian can develop some awesome blueberry / berry notes if allowed to rest a few days. Lastly, I'm concerned about any off flavors the beans could pick up from being in the freezer. Although, everyone has their own methods just like homebrewing.
I currently have the Saeco espresso machine that I purchased several years ago. It's decent for the money. Lately, I've been considering finding an older hand pump espresso machine. They look awesome and it takes some additional skill to pull a great shot.
