Re: Nottingham Yeast query

Does Nottingham have a reputation of being very volatile? Yes, that is quite characteristic of Nottingham, and in my opinion it is also a clear indicator that you are likely to be fermenting it too hot (which has flavor consequences). It generally behaves much better when fermentation is kept at or...

Re: 2nd Brew - Blue Moon Style Extract Brew Questions

Steep those three grains for 30 minutes at the right temperature and you have a mini smash since the 2-row and wheat are base grains. So steeping them would still be effective and a partial mash isn’t a must ? Steeping at the right temperature for 30 minutes is a mini-mash if base grains are includ...

Re: 2nd Brew - Blue Moon Style Extract Brew Questions

American wheat is pretty flexible, use whatever hop you like. I'd stick with all dme. Don't worry about steeping grains, you want the coriander and orange to be the focus. S-05 is a dry version of 1056. K-97 is a good choice for American wheat. Add fruit to the f v once primary fermentation is done....

Re: Rauchbier...

What hops did you use in your Piwo Grödziske? I’ve a hankering to brew one, but the Polish hop varieties are tough to source. I found a polish HB supply company (their prices looked pretty good from a uk perspective!), but they wouldn’t deliver to uk [emoji3525] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I...

Re: Rauchbier...

If you want to make a sorta rauchbier with a swerve you could try oak smoked wheat malt. It's a good shout, A few years back I made a Polish oak smoked beer called Grodziskie. It was a good refreshing pint in the summer sunshine! On this brew I went with the carafa to see how it turned out. Had a c...

Re: FG too low

What is the recipe?
Are you sure about that F G? Hydrometer or refractometer?
Something is off, no way it should be 1.000.

Re: Adding Fruit to fermenting

Once the primary fermentation is done the ph of the beer and the alcohol make it very inhospitable to anything that could hurt your brew.
A couple of batches ago I added some wild blackberries to a wheat beer. All I did to them was to clean them a bit and bag them. It came out quite good.

Details, man!
(If you can still make sense after 18% :shock: )
Excellent. Still a good cherry flavor. And the honey variety is quite apparent. And, surprisingly, a very slight hint of carbonation.
