Hi there
« on: July 31, 2012, 06:49:29 PM »
I thought I'd say hi again. Sorry for the relatively sudden disappearance a while back, but when you have to prioritize time, hobbies end up suffering the most.

I hope I can spend a little more time in the forum again. Brewing and geeky stuff in isolation is not as much fun.

I'm glad you are back. I look forward to some geekiness and picking your brain on thoughts. Just remember moderation!

I can't wait to see what you have been up to.

Thanks guys.

I have been doing some brewing stuff, even experiments. The latest ones have to do with fermentation performance. After I brew a batch of beer I take about 2l of the left over wort and ferment them in 500 ml flasks with different stuff added or under different condition. The amount of beer for each fermentation is enough to make one bottle of beer each. My blog has the only 2 experiments I have done so far:

http://braukaiser.com/blog/blog/2012/06/09/pitching-rate-experiment/
http://braukaiser.com/blog/blog/2012/06/22/the-effect-of-zinc-on-fermentation-performance/

I have a few ideas for more.

I also have been invited to talk at the ANHC in Australia this year. Preparing presentations is a real chore, though.

Cheers,
Kai

Welcome back. You have been missed!

I will proceed to spend some time reading the blog entry on zinc.  ;)
