    I don't have an answer, but am interested in hearing what others have to say about it. For example, would DMS be more of a problem, since it might not be blown off with the CO2 as easily? Or any...

    Blonberg,

    Thank you for all the information you gave about Brewtan. Will give it a try as well, but mostly for its clarifying properties which will hopefully be good enough.

    Cheers,

    Hey Rob,

    Galaxy, El Dorado and Azacca are excellent hops too in my opinion. El Dorado is straight up pineapple for me, but since it's hard to get at the moment, Azacca is a pretty good substitute....

    Okay this was a lie. 0,5% of Oxonia from Ecolab is what we use, which isn't only PAA, which I just figured out. D'oh.

    So, believing Oxonia contains 49g/l PAA, we're at 250 ppm which should be on...

    Caustic concentrations

    Hi all,

    In trying to optimize our use of chemicals at the brewery, I've been reading a bit of research on the topic. Apparently, for cleaning CCT's, a solution of 1% NaOH might be enough to get it...

    Hi Frank,

    Our SOP is after our caustic cycle, we also remove all fittings and gaskets too. We spray alcohol on the parts before we reassemble everything. We never have any problems with...

    Brewing non-alcoholic beers

    Hi all,

    We're looking into brewing a non-alcoholic beer and I was hoping to get some ideas on where to start and how to do it. Does anyone have experience and good results with it? We've got a 40...

    So the difference between these four beers and your standard practiced beers, is the absence of a flame-out? Sounds to me as a plausible cause for the higher attenuation, since even beta-amylase will...

    Hi Dan,

    I've had mixed results with the method you suggested. The best remedy for our problem was to go back to vorlauf, until the wort was clear enough again. Bit more time consuming, but...

    Phillip, you won't be hearing any arguments from me in favor of batch sparging, I'm sure to lobby for a fly sparging system once we grow bigger again. Other than...

    To give you a ballpark to play in: we use about 1,2 liter during mashing in on a 40hl batch, containing about a 1000 kg malt, to bring the pH from 6,0-ish down to 5,6-ish. No lactic flavor detected....
