re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Bleed P&G
I am planning to brew a saison next weekend and want to throw in some orange zest at the end of the boil. Does anyone know how many ounces it takes to detect the orange flavor in the final beer. Also, how many oranges it takes to yield one ounce of zest?...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Bleed P&G
I made this German Pils with 2124 a couple of months ago. The beer is very good, but is missing that crisp finish of a typical German Pils. I think I need to up the sulfates in my water next time to get that crispness and will definitely add more late hops to up the aroma. Grains 86% German Pils...

[quote]To keep an eye on the level while filling I used this: Ball Float[/quote] I love those things. I have one for each of my kegs. I also put markings on the outside of my kegs so that the little orange ball indicates how many 12 oz beers I have left in the keg. [img]http://i.imgur.com/adYK...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Bleed P&G
Do you have a pound or two of oats in your grain bill? That is likely what is causing the turbidity. The final beer will be fine. I just wrapped up a German pils. It came in a couple of points high at 1.050, but other than that, it was a flawless brew day. ...
