Re: Ashtonlady in Cedar Rapids Iowa

I haven't been around a lot lately, but last I knew, the Iowa contingent was pretty small. I'm just over an hour away from CR.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

That is a very loaded question. Sucrose is easy, as it's pretty constant, but others are tougher. Even corn sugar (D-glucose) that gets used a lot in homebrewing can vary quite a bit as it's...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Kaisersozei, assuming the 36 points potential is correct and that you have exactly 5 gallons in the fermenter, then yes, your math is correct.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Yeah, coming from a large brewery standpoint, I can understand. Lagers tend to be higher pH than ales. Hell, some of the sours will get down close to 3.0. I don't tend to think in large brewery...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Ah, I guess I didn't realise that Rose's lime juice was a syrup, I was assuming it was juice. Shows how many mixed drinks I make, I guess.

The english word you're looking for is "zest". That's...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

What post are you referring to, JHinc? I haven't seen any reference to syrup, and I'm not sure what cestes is. Either way, it would take quite a bit to lower the pH too much, brewers yeast likes an...

Re: iphone 4 just announced.

Most of them. People generally buy accessories like this with the phone, and Apple's numbers show that only 20% of uses bought a case with the iPhone4. If you have to buy a case separately to make a...

Good to know! Thanks.

I should probably specify, it's fine if you're batch sparging. For fly sparging, it could cause some issues with grain bed depth, and is tougher to deal with the...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Sorry, I guess when I see a setup like that, I just assume all grain. Not many people go that far for extract setups.

The 54 qt should be fine for 5 gallon batches, and even 10 gallon batches of...

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

Honestly, I can't remember. IIRC it's printed on the bottle itself, not the label, so it shouldn't be too hard to find. I'm thinking it's yellow ink. I have some Palo Santo Marron that the date's...

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

I wonder if that's from the beer itself or from aging. Do your bottles have a date on them? I still haven't heard of any later than 2007.

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

Germany makes some good beers, but they are pretty limited in style. The US micros make very good beers with a wider selection than you will find anywhere else in the world. For the most part, the...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

A 1 pint starter is nowhere near enough to grow up enough yeast from a Propagator. That would barely be enough to grow up to the point of the Activator, and that's assuming optimal oxygenation. I...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Liquid yeast, did you make a starter? How fresh was it? How well did you aerate? It's possible it ran out of steam. What yeast are we talking about, anyway?

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

My understanding is that the last time they made it was in 2007. Don't know if it's going to be back or not.

Not odd at all, I do it with most beers out of the regular refridgerator.

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

Was that the Raison d'Etra or did you get ahold of some Raison d'Extra? I know there's still some of the Extra floating around.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I prefer nylon to muslin in this case. You want them to spread out as much as they can, and the muslin being stretchy will tend to hold them together more. The nylon is also reusable.

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

I've only had their Bock. It was good, nothing outstanding; but then bock isn't exactly the most exciting style to begin with.

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

Very, very hard to compare those two. One's a sessionable 5% ABV English style stout where the other's a 9.4% ABV American style imperial stout.

I will agree that BORIS is very good. Next time I'm...

Re: What beers are you enjoying?

I'm a fan of their Oatmeal Stout, but most of the rest aren't all that great. I agree with your assesment on the RIS.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I've never seen any numbers for liquid cultures, so I don't know. I usually let mine sit for ~3 hours before pitching it into my starter. I cold crash my starters, so that usually sits out for ~5 hrs...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

You didn't kill the yeast. We keep the temps down to avoid unwanted byproducts, but most yeast is very happy at temps up to 100F. You shouldn't start killing it until you're above 110F or so, and...
