  • The Gelatin Effect: Dry vs. Hydrated In A Pale Lager | exBEERiment Results!
    by Jake Huolihan on April 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Author: Jake Huolihan Many of the most popular beers these days are known for being hazy to the point of opacity, and while opinions seem to have softened about this, certain classic styles are still expected to be clear. While larger commercial breweries often rely on mechanical filtration to achieve this goal, other brewers prefer

  • Brü It Yourself | Home Roasted Coconut Coffee Stout
    by Phil Rusher on April 8, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Author: Phil Rusher As winter comes to an end and spring approaches, my brewing focus often shifts to darker, more roast-forward beers. The cooler Upstate New York weather during this time of year lends itself nicely to styles like Porter and Stout, particularly those of a higher strength, which also happen to work well with

    by Cade Jobe on April 5, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Author: Cade Jobe Boiling wort is considered a crucial step in the brewing process, as it serves multiple purposes including eliminating beer spoilage microbes, halting the enzymatic conversion of starch to fermentable sugar, driving off the DMS precursor, and promoting the Maillard reaction.  It’s also during the boil that alpha acids from hops isomerize into

  • Wort Aeration: Impact Of Wort Oxygenation On A British Golden Ale | exBEERiment Results!
    by Andy Carter on March 29, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Author: Andy Carter Oxygen plays a peculiar role in the brewing process—whereas it’s been getting a lot of attention lately for the detrimental effects it can have on the cold-side, it is essential for ensuring adequate yeast cell growth during the lag and exponential phases of fermentation. Many opt for the simple approach of aerating

  • Inkbird Quick and Easy Test Setup
    by invalid@example.com (Hwk-I-St8) on April 13, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    I have an Inkbird PID, temp probe, junction box and SSR/heatsink. The PID is 100-240v AC, the SSR is 24-340V AC load with 3-32V DC. It looks like this: I have a few questions. I’m thinking I’ll test this as a 240v setup since I’ve got a 240 outlet in my brewing area. I don’t want to invest a bunch more money in it for the initial test. I need a simple circuit. I’ll need power input/output and an on/off switch. I’ll probably just run the temp probe into…Inkbird Quick and Easy Test Setup

  • What makes a good American light lager?
    by invalid@example.com (mcmeador) on April 13, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    I’m planning to brew an American light lager and currently looking at Northern Brewer’s This Beer’s for You at least as a starting point, but I don’t want to end up brewing a Bud Light, Miller Lite, etc. I have had a couple of great craft American light lagers before, the two that stand out the most in my mind being Upslope’s and Southern Prohibition’s. For any who have made or had a good craft American light lager, what do you think makes them stand out from the typical big beer examples…What makes a good American light lager?

  • Pressure Barrell
    by invalid@example.com (DrewsBrews85) on April 13, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    Ive just put my first batch of Beer into a pressure barrel and added sugar to carbonate. At the moment I don’t have a vale on the top that will allow me to use the little C02 canisters. Would I be able to open the top of the keg before its finished secondary and replace the vale and inject C02? Cheers

The initial post was about how a Homebrewer might reproduce a BrewPi system, which was Open-Source, but for which Elco sold the hardware commercially. Elco no longer sells this version of BrewPi, so the situation has…BrewPi Remix – What’s Old is New Again

    by invalid@example.com (JesterMage) on April 13, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    I keep reading posts about grains and the term 2-Row. Since I am a new member I thought I would use the question “what is 2-Row?” as a way to introduce myself instead of Googling it. I love reading all the articles here and look forward to many conversations.

    by /u/TheNotoriousMID on April 13, 2021 at 8:01 am

    Belgian Table Beer – https://share.brewfather.app/Q3bcrX4SWnifRE Some of the ingredients are just what’s on hand (flaked wheat and wakatu). Still need to decide on water chemistry as well, build up from RO. Also using Oxbow dregs built up for yeast. submitted by /u/TheNotoriousMID [link] [comments]

  • Daily Q & A! – April 13, 2021
    by /u/AutoModerator on April 13, 2021 at 8:00 am

    Welcome to the Daily Q&A! Are you a new Brewer? Please check out one of the following articles before posting your question: How do I check my gravity? I don’t see any bubbles in the airlock OR the bubbling in the airlock has slowed. What does that mean? Does this look normal / is my batch infected? Or if any of those answers don’t help you please consider visiting the /r/Homebrewing Wiki for answers to a lot of your questions! Another option is searching the subreddit, someone may have asked the same question before! However no question is too “noob” for this thread. No picture is too tomato to be evaluated for infection! Even though the Wiki exists, you can still post any question you want an answer to. Also, be sure to vote on answers in this thread. Upvote a reply that you know works from experience and don’t feel the need to throw out “thanks for answering!” upvotes. That will help distinguish community trusted advice from hearsay… at least somewhat! submitted by /u/AutoModerator [link] [comments]

  • Dry Hopping Question for Hazy IPA
    by /u/nomowo on April 13, 2021 at 5:15 am

    So the hop schedule looks like so: 0.5 oz Warrior – Boil 60 min 1 oz Citra – Boil Last 5 min 2 oz Mosaic (Whole Cone) – Added at Flame Out 1 oz Citra – Added at Flame Out 2 oz Mosaic – Dry hop added on day 3 of fermentation 1 oz Citra – Dry hop added on day 3 of fermentation 1 oz Mosaic – Dry hop added after primary fermentation & 3 days before packaging 2 oz Citra – Dry hop added after primary fermentation & 3 days before packaging So on Day 3 of fermentation I realized I forgot to add the 1oz of Citra at Flame Out. Should I add it at any point during fermentation or not at all? First post ever, so please let me know if I can provide any other information. submitted by /u/nomowo [link] [comments]
