Re: Dave Line & Lost Beers

Thing was about Dave Lines book was that you could not buy the ingredients listed. I recall he said to use Bullian hops for Guinness and as for Amber malt.... :shock:

Re: Hop Boiling.

Yes you will extract hop oil but the main reasons for boiling are, To sterilize the wort To stop the enzymatic activity of the mash To concentrate the wort To boil off unpleasant aroma compounds To coagulate proteins so they will drop out To extract bitterness from the hops To adjust wort color and ...

Re: Brewing alcohol free

Had a listen to that podcast and after the back slapping and shite talk you get to 30 minutes where he starts to chat about their mashing schedule. He mash @ 52C for 40 minutes and then quickly brings it up to 74C for 60 minutes. Sparge @78C. I'd say the 52C is for the limit dextrinase phase first t...

Re: Brewing alcohol free

On the search for yeast that eat maltose and not maltotriose you can look at Windsor. On the spec sheet for this yeast it states that it cannot deal with maltotriose.
My other research suggests PH 5.5 in the mash favours alpha more than Beta amylase without compromising the wort.

48°C for 20 min;
52°C for 30 min;

Re: Brewing alcohol free

I was chatting with a commercial yeast specialist who said he would not release this yeast for legal reasons. Said that the brewery using it would need to be super sterile and as most brewerys are not then a high degree of spoilt brews can ensue. I note from the 2 research papers we listed both had ...

Re: Brewing alcohol free

The yeast mentioned in the above article is here. My thinking about adjusting PH is referred to in it. They recommend mash PH is adjusted. My thinking outside the box is working. Now if I can get back in the box that will be progress. https://www.hefebank-weihenstephan.de/en/products/yeast/spezialhe...
