Re: Porter with soapy off taste

I don’t know where I got S-04 from. And I just tasted a bottle of my weird tasting beer that was in the fridge for a couple weeks and it tastes good, so must have settled something out.

Re: Porter with soapy off taste

Who's Palmer? Is he a member here on JBK? Got a link to his thread about soapy Porters? I must have missed that one. Sorry, John J Palmer's "How to Brew". I thought it was as ubiquitous as Wheelers BYOBRA. There is a partial on line version that I quoted from . McMullan was teasing but the quote is...

Re: Commercial examples of an Amber West Coast IPA

Celebration from Sierra Nevada was one of my all time favorites for awhile.

Brewdog Hardcore? Never had it but it looks dark. IPAs are all that’s available here in the US so I’m sick of them :roll:

Re: Accurate thermometer needed

For some reason Thermoworks has a great site in the US, even though ETI is a British company. Besides the thermapen we use the Smoke grill thermometer and DOT, (digital oven thermometer) I also use their Timestick Trio timer, and have used their disposable ph meter. A what?!!!! Guy one unit ph mete...

Re: Do you take account of break material in hydrometer samples?

Did you compensate for temperature? If the sample warmed to 24.4 C then 1.066 = 1.070

Re: Whirlpooling and protofloc

I agree with PeeBee and McMullan. Pellet hops are a necessary evil because whole hops are very hard to find in the US. I let it settle for 30 minutes and I have a bazooka screen with a muslin grain bag over it. The best solution I’ve found and I use it for whole hops too, but the wort is crystal cle...

Re: Was my yeast bad, should I complain?

Yeah, anyway, the so-called lag phase is simply where the yeast cells need time to process the environmental change - sweet wort conditions - and remodel their transcriptome to synthesise the appropriate proteins (enzymes) to do their dirty deed. It takes a few to several hours under optimal condit...

79FC048C-BBA1-4C37-B7B6-3121185FDD6A.jpeg I just made one of the best beers I’ve ever had with S-04: Propino malt, a touch of crystal, Horizon for bittering and WGV last 10 minutes. The yeast character balanced by an assertive bitterness is amazing, similar to yeast forward beers like Sam Smith’s o...

Re: Was my yeast bad, should I complain?

It usually takes several hours for the pack to swell unless it’s very, very fresh. I wait for it to swell to be sure it’s active, then pitch into a starter. Imperial is the only liquid yeast I pitch directly and that has a shorter shelf life.

Re: Dried yeast lag time

I rehydrate as described above and within 24 hours it is very active. My experience lately is that S-04 is a steady fermenter but Nottingham takes off like a rocket!

Re: BRY-97

That's when I bought mine, but from a local home-brew shop and was informed by the owner not long after that they were no longer being made anywhere.
