What if he grows a sweet beard with a handlebar mustache?

One of my observations during my recent trip to Germany, is that there has been an large outbreak of manbuns.


A couple of really unfortunate looks. Handlebar 'stache and/or manbun = D-bag. Period.  :)

Well that sucks.
Yeah, don't remember any on last falls trip. That trend was fast.

Was this shot from the world beard championships? They actually had a short lived TV show based on that championship, ridiculous

Apparently I have somehow been entirely ignorant and perhaps noticeably absent regarding all this talk about deoxygenated water and Brewtan, etc.

Until today.  Today I wasted hours reading up on all this sh!t.  And that is my tentative conclusion: it is sh!t.

The pseudo science and recommended practice of a 30 minute protein rest killed it for me, not to mention that a friend of mine can achieve "it" with a single infusion and nothing special other than using continental malt, hops, and the right yeast.

Yes, I know what "it" is, and I love and crave "it".  I think maybe I even can get close to "it" in my own beers.  However this all also leads me to believe that there's little if any need to futz with this secretive fake sciency LODO and Brewtan stuff.

I will let you guys run these experiments while I continue to play with "regular" decoction and efficiency.  Results coming soon/eventually on my triangles.

Dave, I'm 99% certain Brewtan improved my beers with minimal effort.  That's why we have 15 brewers lined up to do an experiment with it.

Wow.  Alright then, maybe I should be more open minded, like the Germans.   :o

I guess I posted in the wrong thread.  I'll copy and repost in the other one.

Or wait until the experiment is concluded to see if it's all just confirmation bias and magic fairy dust.

I'm looking forward to the results, regardless. I haven't done my double batch yet (hoping to do it fairly soon, an APA with some of Ted H's hops) to see what people notice or don't. I notice improvement but that's anecdotal at this point. I've been wrong before.

The back to back batches I did were markedly different.  But that's only a single test so I'm not drawing any definitive conclusions from it.

Interesting.  As for shelf life, I bottled a few of the the first two beers I used it on - a German pils and a Marzen. At 3 months old (admittedly not a long time), both seem as fresh as the day I tapped. For reference, I have had average strength lagers that were good but a little past their peak freshness at 3 months. Gonna sample again at 6 months.

And wasn't that before dosage rates were correct as well?

The beer I'll be testing is a simple blonde with 27ibu at first wort. Clean and malty, nothing to hide or mask possible benefits.

Sure was.  When I mentioned it to Joe he said it ought to help anyway and it seemed to.  We're interviewing him for the podcast in about 3 hours.
