Update: Lab Data on Pils Malt Boil Length exBEERiment
« on: October 08, 2015, 11:59:01 AM »
Still curious following the last boil length xBmt comparing a Pils malt based wort boiled for 30 vs. 90 minutes, I sent some samples off to a lab for testing. The results are in!

For the upcoming Pils with Best Pils malt I will cut back the boil time. Good work Marshal.

Its funny but even after reading it I still had that feeling of irrational doubt. Its amazing how being repeatedly told that something is out there, even if youve never seen it, can stick in your mind even after the light is turned on and you see that there's no boogeyman.

My next two brews are pils lagers and have been adjusted to 60min boils.

I wonder how much DMS is in unboiled wort.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

I wonder how much DMS is in unboiled wort.
Also, I wonder how much SMM remains in the short-boil beer compared to the 90-minute one. In other words, does the 30-minute boil drive everything off, or does something else in the process keep the SMM from being converted to DMS later on down the line.

Another question might be, is there SMM in modern pils malt? If so is there enough to make any detectable difference?

Very, very interesting.  Nice job!!

Jon, if you're using Avangard pils for this, please report back!
