    To be even more pedantic, pils malt is just pale malt that's not dried at as high a temperature, resulting in a lighter colour and sweeter notes. That's literally all. Some places sell it as "extra...

    I haven't sipped the rum neat that much yet, but then again I am biased, saying it's good. It really is. It's lighter flavoured than you would think but with coke it's amazing. The rum flavour...

    So, our brewers yeast CANNOT ferment Sucrose (table sugar). It just can't. Sucrose is a longer chain sugar made up of fructose and glucose. However, yeast does naturally possess some enzymes that...

    I boiled mine until I was 99% sure all the water was gone, and all I was left with was molten sugar. Browning happens QUICKLY so be careful with it. Also take it off sooner rather than later, as it...

    I just tape mine with masking tape to the side of the fermenter, about 1/3rd of the way below the beer line. I also tune the chamber temp to be 0.5C colder than I want the beer to ferment at. So...

    At 20C it's going to be done FAST. How much did you pitch? It's a VERY fast yeast, by far the fastest lager yeast I have ever used.

    No I'm saying the hotter it gets, the more inaccurate the reading is, no matter what the correction chart says. Remember small changes gets magnified over the temperature spectrum.
