What kind of beer are you brewing? If the beer doesn't tast bad then I wouldn't worry about it..just leave it all behind when you rack.

Iodophor or Starsan residue does that for me.

Is it an Irish Stout? Or rather a Gaelic Stout... Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Its a Pale Ale. I use Idophor to clean. It was Northern Brewer hop's and i just have the basic turkey fryer stand with a converted keg as the boil pot. Also what is the recommened temps and time till this should be ready to drink? 2 wk's primary 2 weeks secondary?

PTA, think you might have "out-foxed" some with that that Gaelic stout remark (or they weren't amused). . .but I admit I thougt it was pretty funny. . .and now those two beers could get married in many states. . .

There was a thread about this a while back, and the prevailing opinion was that it was hop oils. I've seen this in my beer too, and my guess would be that the hops are responsible. If I'm not mistaken, I think the thread was titled "Oil in my beer" or something like that.

He he, I didn't get it because I pronounced it "gallic" instead of "gay-lic". I thought he meant that there was a pot (or a carboy) of beer at the end of a rainbow.

Instead of going that route maybe I should have did a Jeff Gordon remark... sometimes I make myself and only myself laugh

You could have asked if it was a Schmidt's Gay clone.

2nd and 3rd question already answered.

4th, depends on the yeast, but 65-70F would be desirable for most pale ales.

5th, primary duration depends on FG, but I think 1 week in primary and 2 weeks in secondary should be fine.

Of course, technically speaking, I am really answering your 6th question, not 4th and 5th, and certainly not 2nd, and your 7th question is covered by the answers to the 6th question.

Any questions? RDWHAHB. Always wanted to type that.

Sure, Denny's probably wearing a Dupont #24 t-shirt right now. . .Like it or hate it (I tend to lean toward the latter) if you live in NC you have heard of it. . .Jeff Gordan is an effeminate Nascar driver who was quite successful a few years ago--his pit crew were the "rainbow warriors" I saw him recently on TV sporting some stubble, probably in an effort to look more "rugged" or "manly."

Personally if I want to watch things go 'round & 'round I'll just whirlpool my wort. . .Maybe even yell WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! every time my favorite hop leaf floats by

Maybe if Sierra Nevada sponsored a car, the beer attitudes in the south would be a lot more enlightened. Or maybe Stone would be a better match...

PTA, you've been watching too many Seinfeld re-runs! But I laughed, too!
