comment Using Granular Yeast in a Lager
Yeah, 38 C might even kill the yeast. I will stick to the official guidelines and pitch it in a wort at about 25 C, that's what i always do anyway, and the leave it until it reaches 20 degrees to pitch it into the rest of the wort. Since this is not a real starter, just a rehydration, do you think using raw cane sugar is ok or it's better to use malt extract like in starters?

comment Brew Fail Diagnosis Help
Yeah, without a recipe not much can be done. If you used a brewferm kit though, it's most unlikely that it came out with less than a great body without doing something wrong. The brewferm kits produce really full-bodied beers.

comment Using hops after fermentation
Perfect answer! My concern was mainly how i could choose the balance between hop aroma and bitterness. In beers that are already aromatic, hop aroma could make a total mess. So if that case occurs I'll keep in mind the isomerized hop extracts! Cheers!

comment Using nuts for beer aroma
So do you mean that the "oily" part will be too present in the final beer thus leaving a bad feeling in the mouth? I'm not pretty sure whether i can find hazelnut extract, I've never seen it in stores. Good thinking anyway.

I forgot to mention I was thinking soaking them in vodka for sanitation, but the idea of using frangelico is even better. Cheers! ;)
