You could also use some lemon drop or citra hops in the dry hop.

Or Sorachi Ace. I think the zest would work better though. Make sure you don't get any of the pith in the zest.

Blueberry wine is almost finished. Just need to oak it, and then bottle.

And add your zest at flameout. You'll retain more of the aroma/flavor.

Any update on this? I picked up a couple pouches of OSLO but haven't gotten around to it yet.

The beer was fantastic. The yeast is extremely clean, lager-like. I brewed a pilsner using the recipe below and fermented it at at 94°F for 4 days. I cold crashed on day 5, kegged on day 6 and added gelatin, It was fully carbed and bright by day 8. It may not have had some of the German lager characteristics, but it was super clean and definitely tasted like a pislner.

This link gives the full recipe and shows a graph of the fermentation. The yeast says HotHead because OSLO is not available to choose from on Brewtatus.

90% pilsner
10% Carafoam
0.5 oz Magnum at 60 min
1 oz Hallertauer Mittelfrueh at 5 min

Right on. I'm waiting another week or two until our weather here gets in to the 80s pretty consistently. I was talking with the owner at Bootleg and he said they run all their batches at 85 and the it will stall at 75 or less. My garage isn't quite warm enough for it yet.

Think I’m going to try this stuff in a kettle sour first. Sour for 24hr at 95 then pitch OSLO and let it drop to 85. See how it handles acidic environments.

Well, SS Brewtech finally did it. They've managed to read my mind and take all of my future money for a complete electric system.

SS brewtech created a RIMS system to work with their InfusSion Mash tun (which i have). And it will work with the ebrewing electric system (which i will buy one day).

I finally spent $100 on a chest freezer today after months of thinking about it... But I guess that little gadget seems cool too

they just copied blichmann. They have has their RIMS Rocket for like 2 years now. I used to be infatuated with SS stuff but i have found they are over priced and Spikes is better quality.

I used OSLO is one of my pale ales. And TBH i didnt like it in this pale recipe. Because it was too Lager like Fantastic yeast that is so crisp and clean and lagerish after fermenting at 68. I just wanted more body in this beer. i WILL be using this yeast again in other beers though.

I have been working with the guys over on homebrewtalk for some time now building their brewpi temp controllers for my fermentation chambers and freezers. and here is the first one. A bluetooth minion running brewpi remix, using Fermentrack.

How much did that run you, and you should probably build me one in exchange for beer.

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II
well i have spent probably 300 bucks.... but i have 2 built and could probably build another 2 or 3.

these were rather hard. The next ones im building are wifi and have lest components. So that should be cheaper and easier to build.

The hardest part was all the research to understand what you were doing.

The grav sensor. How’s it working? Where is it located?

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II
well it worked great minus that squirrely reading of 1.728. I have talked to the developer and it has been brought up to have the program omit any out of the realm reading. IDK when or if it will be added or not.

It is a tilt. i looked into building one of the iSpindel's but when all said and done they you will spend 60-80 bucks. and you can get a tilt for 100 when one of the major sites runs 20% off.

it is in the fermentor. Im havent calibrated it yet and noticed it was about 4 points off from my refractometer.

My tilt temp readings can be squirrely when I first put it in the fermenter. I adjusted mine 6 to 7 pts I believe

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II
what are you using to track? the app? If i were you i would get a RPi and put fermentrack on it even to just track the SG. And it can track as many Tilts as you have.
