Re: Air lock bubbling

It could be still fermenting slowly.

Or it could be still just venting off CO2 in solution. This happens more with temperature changes.

Leave it a couple more days, and measure. If it's still at 1.011 then bottle/cask/keg.

Re: Munich Smash

Sounds good. Moderately hopped with something American? Cascade?

Nice American amber ale.

What ebc is this going to come out at?

Re: USA brewer looking for that "best" english bitter

I would say if you haven't given the Big Kenny recipe a go, then that's definitely worth a try.

I believe it was big in the other forum before it changed hands.

Re: Mash lengths

Overnight or 90 minutes.

I prefer overnight for perceived wort quality and time saved.

That's an interesting way of doing it. Never crossed my mind to do it like that.

Re: Overnight Mashing

Phil,

Cheers. That does put my mind at rest over a few issues. Especially tannin extraction (for haze issues) and over fermentability.

Re: Overnight Mashing

Cheers John.

Oh dear Dennis, I take it you don't have a false bottom/BIAB. Worth knowing that the mash compacts that much.

Overnight Mashing

Does anyone have any bad experiences of overnight mashing/long mashes?

Things usually quoted are a low fg, thin beer, no head, fizzyness and mash infections/sourness. Has anyone had problems first hand.

Also good to hear from those that use this. What are your timings, temperatures and method.

Re: length of mash?

Touchstone, do you ever find you get a low fg, thin beer, no head, fizzyness, which are the common concerns?

Cheers

Thats exactly what I was thinking.

I had high hopes for this until I read it is slow to sediment....

(I will change my tune if it gets good reviews)

Re: Different pH estimates with different calculators

What is the ideal pH for the break? Or is it the range of the fall which encourages it?

Re: AG#4 BIAB Speckled hen Clone

Apparently, ferments down similar to the ratio of malt extract. That percentage of left behind unfermentable products must give some taste/body/mouthfeel.

Hopefully somebody will be along to say I am wrong.

I always thought it fermented down to near sugar levels.

Hows SA?
