I have been brewing since 2009, with every attempt to expand and improve since. Also helped found a Milwaukee, WI based brew club, Brewathon, in 2011.

Always Brewing.

comment Carbonated in carboy from primary fermentation?
@mdma I understand very mild carbonation often occurs in fermentation, but I meant specifically the act of the beer foaming and over flowing from the addition of sugar.

comment Carbonated in carboy from primary fermentation?
You make it sound like this type of behavior is common place and completely logical...I have never had anything like this happen to me before, nor heard of this type of thing happening. Is this something that frequently happens to you?

Not to beat a dead horse, but I am with Henry and Tobias on this one. If the true FG was 1.002, I'm pretty sure your beer would not taste very good at all. And since you said it does taste OK, I would probably just throw that reading out.

comment Possible to intensify/increase the amount of yeast flavor?
Ya, I suppose a higher ferment temp might be the most universal method across strains. And good point on the ferulic acid...I never focused (or was aware) on this in past hefes I have made.

comment Possible to intensify/increase the amount of yeast flavor?
Good info with RE: to the hefe yeast specifically. I viewed the brewing Tv episode and it was VERY informative and looks like open fermentation may be a really good option for my next hefe. Will definitely be trying this and will post the results when done.

comment Any way to rescue an overly bitter beer?
Could you clarify just how much of each (Northdown, Target, and Bobek) was added at 60 min?

comment Possible to intensify/increase the amount of yeast flavor?
@DennyConn sorry for the lack of clarity, but I am looking to accentuate the flavor the yeast gives to the beer.

@brewchez this would be for any yeast, but I have the most interest in doing this with a hefe yeast.

revised can you dry hop in the primary, or do you have to rack into a secondary in order to add the dry hops?

comment Potential causes of unreliable pre-boil gravity measurement
I understand the contamination concerns...I guess I just never had a concern or issue with that myself. Also seems like your markings should get you pretty close to your actual volume estimation.
