You put in 33% too much effort.

Nice work though.

A study was done comparing different dry hopping rates from 2g/L to 16g/L. I had read the study before but had forgotten about it. I am glad I stumbled across it again. Citrus aromas hit a saturation point at 4g/L, and herbal and tea aromas at 8g/L. Basically anything above 8g/L is a waste. 

@ChristinaS1 Thanks Christina for this information - good to have as hops are not cheap and there has to be a diminishing rate of return on pouring more and more in.

 

On another note Christina and all ye dry hopping Brewers - a query for you all:

I have a hop sock (nylon) and a SS fine mesh hop tube which has a solid bottom and a screw-on lid with holes.

Do you think that there could be a difference between the way the hop oils/liquid aromatic volatiles migrate out of these different late-hop-delivery-units.... out of their containment into the brew ???

Just am wondering whether the SS tube.. which also seems to sit on the bottom... with the hop pellets in a lump... may not be allowing the true potential of the hops to be delivered into the brew during dry hopping.

Also I deffo cannot squeeze the SS tube - but can give the nylon sock a @Beerlust squeeze...

Anyone?

Roggenbier.... Never had one, first time making one. Tastes like bananas. Is not carbonating as well as other kegs do. Thick mouthfeel but fermented quite dry. Tastes chocolatey also, still tastes sweet. Odd.

Sourdough?

Aaargh... great question.

No mate - just bread yeast - but I popped in a dollop of US05 slurry to help things along.

And let it go for most of the day before baking.

Turned out nicely ; )

So have got into an old DRA - the Disaster Recovery Ale from August... pics below - with the conditioned version... very clear now... and quite a different brew... liked both...  but the clear malty caramel flavours in this are just outstanding...

Wow. Initial pour was phenolic and reminiscent of my dreaded house yeast. That has gone and this is light, fruity and very lively.

IT is taschteee!!!

I have another Weizen in the pipeline (hmmm maybe bottle-line)... that is still waiting to be revealed...  hopefully as good - but I upped the Barley and reduced the Wheat malt a little for ease of handling... still with the lovely Wyeast Weihenstephan W3068...

will be interesting to see how that measures up.

Asian lager which i kegged mid week. Was going to lager both asian lagers but put this one on tap. This one for whatever reason had 100% attenuation from the budvar yeast. As a first taste it is dry as all hell. Very Chang like but super dry. I cant believe how clear it is after only a gelatine treatment and absolutely no chill haze. Forever had problems with haze with rice lagers. But looks like a longer mash and boil did the trick.

Having another crack at this Helles.  It seemed way too sweet a couple of weeks ago but for some reason that doesn't seem so apparent now.   Nice enough beer otherwise and I'll have no problems getting through the rest of the batch but as there's other styles I'd rather brew I don't think I'll be brewing this one again any time soon.   🤓
