2 days into fermentation. Lots of tropical/pineapple flavor.
First brew since November. :jnj


How did that Omega Yeast turn out?


Looking back, my notes mention pineapple and fruit a lot, and little to no funk. It was good but I would have liked some funk. Looks like it finished at 1.009.

Missed the window for properly spunding my Munich Dunkel, so I took a shot at fermenter priming, then racking to the keg after activity was visible. We shall see how it works out.

Totally sold on hot side low oxygen process, but packaging is still up for debate.

I think I'm in the same place. I have been somewhat more lazy about my kegging practices, just purging the keg with CO2 and then racking into it while fermenting (or primed with sugar) and things seem to have been coming out very nice. It seems like, with the active yeast, it should be quite tolerant to some small oxygen pickup during the transfer unless you were planning to store it for a year or something. Mine never last that long for sure.

Been really trying to catch the spund lately and have actually nailed it the last two batches. What a fast turnaround for carbonation and final gravity reaching compared to fermenter priming.

Anywhoooo, brewed up a German Pils today. Hoppy, fresh, and dry is the hopes.

I also found that when I added sugar to the beer when transferring that it took roughly a week to 10 days to get finished up, while when I transferred with 5 points left and didn't add anything it finished in 3 or 4 days.

My Ultra pilsner (ultra hops) is just about ready to drink, I figure I'll give it a couple weeks to lager before I test it out but the sample I pulled was delightful.
