Hey guys,So I went to a great brewpub (Speindel's) in Germany recently and the brewer was kind enough to detail his hefeweizen recipe and mash schedule for me. I'd like to have a go at roughly…Continue

oliver replied to Nick Good's discussion High hopped beer info
"Love this beer. At a guess I'd say you've either picked up an infection or the yeast gave up during fermentation and picked up again in the bottle. Pretty easy for an infection to show in a 4% beer after a couple of months at room…"

oliver replied to karl oemcke's discussion hop sludge
"Hard to say without tasting the beer, it could be a fermentation issue or contamination. It could be astringency from the hot side. It could be boil pH (if it's too high you can extract a harsher, lingering bitterness). It could be hop…"

"Cool do you cold crash as well? And what yeast strains are we talking? For gelatin mix 1 tsp with hot water then add to fermenter (once it's already crash cooled - more effective that way). Ideally if you can you want a week or more of crash…"

"I've been doing this for a while with stouts for 2 reasons:  1. To keep mash pH a little higher during the bulk of the conversion process. 2. To reduce roast/astrigency extracted from the roasted malts. This is purely anecdotal, I…"

NZHC - Mini club night

Hey brewers,Are you attending the first NZHC and are you part of a homebrew club or group in NZ? The organisers of NZHC have asked us (the Christchurch brewclub) to organise a mini club night on the friday night (brewmania). The idea is to get each group/club to bring 2 kegs of beer. As the conference is only 5 weeks away, we'd need to know within the next week whether your club is interested in getting involved. It should be a great opportunity to taste what other groups around the country are…See More

"All good use whatever makes you feel comfortable and gets you the results you're after, I still use US05 and WLP001 most of the time but quite like M44 too. "

oliver replied to Mark's discussion Mangroves Jacks Yeast Issues
"Have you used any of the other mangrove jacks yeasts Mark? I thought the colour was just due to the nature of their plant maybe? I've used all the english strains from MJs and they're all darker in colour than fermentis but have a very…"

oliver replied to Darren Andrews (Daza)'s discussion MrMalty question...
"Yep you got it. Not necessarily bull, especially if the yeast is fresh. The other factor people look at (apart from viability) is vitality. Vitality is how healthy the yeast is. So if you have really healthy fresh yeast you might be able to get away…"

oliver replied to Darren Andrews (Daza)'s discussion MrMalty question...
"So the viability % is all about the cell count of the yeast. You can roughly figure out what the approximate cell count of the yeast is based on it's shelf life. For US-05 the shelf life is 2 years, so find the best before date on the packet…"
