    today i learned that m84 yeast has quite a strong yeasty smell...

    You can freeze a stella rock solid without the bottle breaking or the top popping off.

    This week I had 2 brett beers on two separate occasions and both times my wife commented on the fact that I smell like alcohol, is this a common trait of brett?

    Does your wife associate barnyard/horse blanket with alcohol?

    Where the beers really high ABV?

    It's not the size of your equipment; it is what you brew with it.

    Thirsty days hath September,
    April, June and November;
    All the rest are thirsty too
    Except for him who hath homebrew.

    She has no idea of the complexities and tastes of different beers!

    It was only 5.5% the one and 6.5% the other

    Dry hopping may cause excessive bubbling

    I had exactly the same experience with my Brewdog Lichtenstein Pale Ale (#105). The recipte calls for 25g each of Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo.

    Man, what a schlep, having to almost baby-sit my fermenter for the first 24hrs after fermentation started. There was so much foam that I had to regularly push down on the lid to expel the gas that had been blocked by the foam, despite having put on a 15mm blow-off tube.All good in the end though. I bottled the beer last Thursday and it looked great and had a wonderful aroma.
    Slainthe!!

    Bottled: Po's Porter
    Fermenting: Blonde ale, Buchu Blonde, French Oak L'ale, Belgian Saison
    Next Brew: Not sure
    Previous Brews: Welcome Home Bru SMASH (Amarillo dry-hopped), "Snow White's Revenge" Cider, American Amber Ale, Pale Ale, Irish Stout, Saison, Red Lager, IPA, Cherry IPA, Biscuit Ale, Cider, Extract IPA, Extract English Bitter, Extract Heritage Lager, Po's Porter, Hoppy Pilsner, Ginga Beeah.

    What did you learn today

    Kegs are not “press the green button easy”


    This was 3 fills with 5 min pause.
    Only foam at the nozzle... any pressure.

    Unless i just invented “head on tap”

    - what keg?
    - what tap?
    - did you pre-carbonate? If so, what pressure for how long and what temp?

    Corny keg. 9L
    Unsure of tap. It has that little side regulator.
    Tried 30psi at 6 degrees for 24 hours. Then dropped to 4 psi to fill a glass. No luck. Then increased to 40 psi at room temp. Been shaking the keg every now and then. It no longer absorbs during shaking. Usually when you shake the keg, you hear the regulator release and pump in more gas. So i think I’m going to disconnect the lines and chill it to 4 degrees and try again.

    Ps, i was too impatient to wait for fermentation so i bought 9 of those 1L castles to test the keg system. If that makes a difference.
