Two times the charm

Postby Freon12 » Fri Jun 21, 2002 5:18 pm

I now have a beer I wish to make again, and again. I have notes, I have grain bill, I know the yeast and my equipment and water are grooved in. I will attempt to repeat the beer(never have before). Any thoughts before I Go?

It's posted under oktomberfest02. Credit to "Tom's Tweaked" that I played with as you can see. The last modification was it! I used whitelabs octoberfest and a three step tempreture mash of 122,141,156. This beer blew me and my Buddy's away! They swear I kegged real German Octoberfest.(use softer water, Harder than Pilsen, for this beer). Outstanding.(now I'm scared).

I have a 'flagship' Irish Red that I have been brewing for about three years. It has survived from extract to all grain. (I have some working right now) Big clew - my yeast is on its 9th generation. Also your second big variable is fermentation temperature.

Greg Noonan stated it best - 'Brew one simple beer over and over gain control and note any changes.' If you can master control and correction you could go pro.

Good brewing.

I have a Robust Porter that i regularly brew every other month. I have several friends who regularly take receipt of a carton or two. Good notes are the key. It took 6 brews or so to finalise the recipe and like yourself, when you get the winning one YOU KNOW! I can now predict volume, OG and FG and get it spot on each time. Attention to detail is all it takes. Good luck - Fraoch

I may not always post like I am very serious about brewering, but that's just to take the edge off how very serious I can get over this fun and totally consuming hobby(HEH, He said consume).
