Thanks for the input guys.......I just couldn't figure why you weren't leading MickyD to a liquid strain for his Hefe.......I reckon we are lucky to have 4 or 5 strains of German Hefe yeast....it sure makes it easier on flavor profiles......I think I've only ever used dry yeast once and it was beca...

talking about obsession, was in tescos with mrs chopper, friday night big shop, and found myself looking at all the back to school stationary (stay with me on this one) and ended up putting a 89p notebook, the sort with elastic to keep it from falling open, into the trolley thinking "this will make...

Supposedly in a perfectly clean glass you wouldn't get any bubbles, cause there wouldn't be any place for nucleation of the bubbles to occur. I thought even clean glass had a certain amount of roughness to it, that's what insects use to 'stick' to it. Maybe this isn't rough enough for bubbles. I we...

I have used Vaseline for several years now, do degrading of o-rings and no leakage of gas from the keg. Plus it is cheap and readily available. I may be wrong but on a cornie the beer is not in contact with the o-rings, it would be impossible to avoid contact with the beer if applied to a tap and I...

It's actually not a problem and will (more than likely) go away in time. Sulpherous smells are more common to lager yeasts but do occur with ale yeasts. Just continue as normal you should be fine. Cheers DaaB, I am planning on putting it into secondary for a month or so before transferring it to my...

RE: Nottingham yeast and Hydrogen Sulphide

Hi all, first time posting on this board! Made a beer on Saturday, and it has been happily fermenting away after I added a packet of Danstar Nottingham, a few days ago I noticed that there was a sulphury aroma coming off it (H2S), I did add about 10% cane sugar to bump up the gravity (S.G.1042) but ...
