    what is saison?

    will start with the basic saison recipe contained in the hb database and mentioned by cerveja. I was looking at the saison 134 but its a bit too bitter for me at 55ibu's, but open to any suggestions. Is this a brew I'd put down now or wait till winter?

    reduced LDM effect

    reduced LDM effect

    about to put down my first cooper commercial yeast brew, a sparkling ale. It calls for 1.5kg of light dry malt with a final abv of 5.8% and ibu of 40. What would be the consequence of only putting in 1kg of ldm? cheers WorryWort

    latest brews have no carbonation

    no, don't think that's the cause as it may only be one bottle in every 3 brews, so the rest of the bottles are good, just every now and then this happens and buggered if I know why it loses everything once chilled. Still get the occasional soft bottle before chilling, usually find another 1/8 inch of nip in the lid, give it a shake and hope for the best.

    latest brews have no carbonation

    heres another quandry, along the lines of the OP. Sometimes I will put a bottle in the fridge and it will be hard, but will soften in the fridge. Same result, no fizz, but the transition happens after its been cooled, any thoughts on that?

    I tighten the buggers up as hard as I can, if the cap fails and goes lose, out it goes.

    malted barley

    it was 100gm crystal malt and only 50 roasted barley apart from the colour, would it greatly affect the taste? im figuring 50gm of anything wouldn't be a game-breaker. I just need to get a brew down on the weekend or I start to fall behind, and heaven forbid that happens lol.

    malted barley

    I wanted to have a first try and using grains and thought I'd start of easy with and Irish Red Ale, but it was too easy and instead of roasted barley I picked up malted barley by mistake. As its 55k back to the brew shop, and I know diddly squat about these matters, I need to ask, can I still make A brew with malted instead of roasted barley? the recipe called for APA, LDM and roasted barley and crystal malt. sorry for the myriad of inane simple questions, but after decades of KnK, this is a new world to me.

    sg discrepancy

    actually, you may have just answered it. ingredients are a doodle, 1x1.75 pacific pale ale, 1x1.5 wheat malt extract dissolved in 2ltr hot water, add to fv, top to 23 ltr, American ale yeast, stir n seal. Last time I mixed it in the fv, it may have been less than 2ltr of water, closer to 1ltr. This time was measured to 2lr in a brewing bucket, so yes, last time was probably more dense at mixing time. Thanks guys.

    sg discrepancy

    This will be easy to solve, I'm sure, just as I'm new to it its confused me. I made a 150 lashes style of brew about 3 months ago, came out great, but sg was 1.042. Today I made another one, same ingredients, but sg is just 1.036. what would cause the difference if all conditions were the same, including using chilled water to get wort to same temp to pitch yeast. Ambient air difference was the only thing that's changed. cheers WorryWort

    re Coopers commercial yeast

    im sorry, I don't mean to labour this point but very keen to learn, so, you put down a brew, added the original yeast fm the coopers dregs, then when you bottled that brew, you kept the bottom inch or 2 from your fv and kept that as the culture for your next brew? I am keen to learn this. How long will it last before its too far removed from the original culture?

    re Coopers commercial yeast

    when you say your going into 6th generation with it, what exactly does that mean, you keep the sediment from the batches you made from the original 6 stubbies worth of yeast? This is probably rudimentary stuff but I'm old and this is new, and I may not be a dog but its a trick to me. tks ww
