Yeah same mash temp and ferm temp here I used WLP007 mine finished real high like 1.022ish
I'd expect that with 007. Similar to what I've been getting with Empire Ale from Mangrove Jack. None of the beers were overly sweet though. I'm starting to really like that yeast.
Just racked Sticky Blonde into the secondary, refilled the primary with a fresh batch of Dirty Boh, think I need to increase the grain bill, both batches are about .006 short on gravity.
Seriously considering buying Beersmith.
Well I decided that was last batch for that yeast because of the high finish gravity but was such a clean tasty beer I'm kicking myself now for not giving it another crack for it's 6th generation. I'd been using that yeast since the start of the year a great allrounder I'd buy it in a heart beat again for sure.
I went to BS3 a year ago. The acid calculation needs a correction factor, other than that, all is good.
Brew day today, 10 gallon batch of Cit Ruby Cit, West Coast IPA, also kegged 10 gallon batch of a Black IPA.
Ordered a couple reconditioned kegs and, after lifting that 10 gallon milker bucket out of the keezer, a 30L Speidel.
Just for a change im actually brewing, not brewed in 4 or 5 months after deciding to heavily limit my drinking for a while .
Have a beer swap event next month so I'll do a hefe in morning and my tropical breakfast cider closer to time to serve on the day
Just took a peek at my first iteration of Guinness' Rye Pale Ale that I aerated and pitched late Thursday night. Judging from the Krausen residue, fermentation was quite vigorous last night. The Krausen has subsided considerably and it's still chugging away.
I'm going back to 5 gallon batches as I've been drinking just to empty kegs for to long now. Time to focus on "quality" if that is something my patience level allows.
Prepping an IPL tomorrow and my wife wants another Tonka porter so prepping the recipe for that.
Packaged 7 gallons of Sticky Blonde, one keg 22 longnecks.
What was your batch size before?
How do you add the tonka? I had a wonderful stout with Tonka beeans and it's been in the back of my mind since.
Weighing out grains for tomorrow's brew or my Czech dark lager recipie I hope this is as tasty as it seems in my mind
Looks good, shooting for Saturday to get mine going.
Getting ready to transfer my Nacho Cream Ale to keg. I normally add my peppers the last 10 minutes of the boil, but made a tincture with vodka this go around. I'll be interested to see how it compares.
I fermented the entire time under pressure, so it should be ready to start drinking almost immediately. My keezer is to full now so I couldn't fit the Fermzilla in there to chill and cold crash. The keg however is nice and cold, ready to be filled.
The Zilla has been rock solid holding pressure at 15 psi thanks to the Blowtie valve. Not a single leak, drip, co2, nothing. It was a little frustrating working out all the kinks and how to properly use the Zilla, but well worth the effort imo. I've got zero issues with it now.
10 gallon, well 42L
Uh I have my wife crush them up with her mortar and then I soak them in a bit of vodka to sterilize. Then I just toss the whole thing in primary. I think it was 3 beans last year. Then I just let it all settle out when I keg.
Cleaning my brew sessions and exporting my favorites to alternate software. I wanted to get to 340 brew sessions but not gonna make it.
