Dang. Crazy clear. Looks good.
Thanks man. It’s pretty red but the low light and glass style make that hard to see. Very pleased with it.

I use Carafa I, and don't regret it. I think Carafa III may be a bit much...definitely worth trying Carafa II for your next version!

Czech dark lager (Tmavý Ležák), with the recipe from the Dark Lagers book. This one is incredibly drinkable! It's maybe a touch drier than I hoped for, but not bad at all.

Yeah it’s only for color at 2 oz. Can never trust the color calculators so it’s something easy to adjust

American IPA...lots of Amarillo, and so it's a very "orangey" beer.
Recipe and more at the usual blog...https://andybrews.com/2023/11/14/the-weekend-ipa/

Festbier, based on a recipe from Gordon Strong.


The flavor is amazing, and it's an incredibly drinkable beer, but I'm pretty disappointed with the head/head retention. Ah well...will probably try some different malt combos next time around.

im not a person very concerned with head retention, though i do like it and know certain beer styles i can expect it in.


ive had the thought for a while though, of using say 1-2% flaked barley in a pilsner simply for head purposes?

i dont think it would cause haze at that rate, and i think a major thing holding people back in terms of lager/german beer styles is totally pointless "reinheitsgebot" (this was NOT widely practiced historically and is incredibly overemphasized) which is something that has nothing to do with making better beer for homebrewers. im adding cane sugar on purpose to at least one of the lagers im brewing, and almost added candi syrup as well.

Foam formation and retention is very much related to yeast health and fermentation. Issues in those likely won't be corrected by adding more protein. https://web.archive.org/web/20090809234712/ttp://byo.com/stories/article/indices/35-head-retention/697-getting-good-beer-foam-techniques

Does anyone know if the audio for this is available (or any of the webinars for that matter)?  I'm sure I must be missing it, but all I see is a "Download Presentation" button that only opens up some power point slides.
