Great link. I'm still perplexed how hops interact differently in small amounts repeatedly instead of all at once, as Denny and others obviously believe they don't.

It'd probably be helpful if you can list as much detail as you have about what you did.

This really should be an update to your existing question, as I believe it's the same.

comment Options for heating a stainless conical fermenter
Looks interesting, I'd recommend putting the link to finack.com/beerhacker/frak. Just curious, why do you heat inside a refrigerator?

comment What ale yeasts can closely approximate the clean and crisp characteristics of lagers?
I really appreciate the creative suggestion on temperature control. Have you done several brews this way? How do you monitor temperature of the wort?

+1 if for no other reason than I now have to demonstrate physics at our next beer related get-together. Do you or any homebrewer you know specifically discriminate the bottles you use for specific brews?

Hate to hear bogus marketing, or just wrong information from a craft brewery. I like the bottles though, the heft is a plus in my book.

Again, worldview changed. Looks like I have more digging to do to uncover the cause of my recent headless beer.

comment What books would help me improve at recipe creation?
I can really appreciate what you're saying, the few times I've modified a recipe that I've brewed multiple times, it's helped tremendously. Of course the obvious other side of this is that I don't want 10 gallons of headless pale ale because I removed crystal malt to give it a lighter color (been there).
