---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 30 Apr 2005 06:14:48 -0400 From: leavitdg at plattsburgh.edu Subject: Saison Yeast Anyone have experience with the Saison yeast-WLP 565 ? I have used this one 4 times now, and each time I have found that the gravity going into the secondary is high...1.019 the first time, 1.021 the second, and so on. The first time it was only 7 days in primary, temps were good, but it really slowed in fermentation, second time 11 days, same scenario. So far I have tasted the first brew, and it is fine, on the light side, but this is how it was intended for the first use, no starter, etc. With time it has cleared and such, but I wonder if I am not feeding it something that it wants? Brewing all-grain. Happy Brewing! Darrell Return to table of contents

So even an opaque stout will benefit form the use of IM, IMHO. David Houseman Return to table of contents

Date: Sat, 30 Apr 2005 13:29:26 -0600 From: Bob Devine <bob.devine at worldnet.att.net> Subject: link of the week - alcohol grows brain The reports of brain damage from alcohol have been told and re-told. As a scare story it works on kids. The story got turned around in the "culling the weakest brain cells from the herd" theory. Here's a study that found it promotes the growth of new nerve cells if used over a long time. http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/node/7694 (BTW, "ataractic" = "tending to tranquilize") Raise a beer to science!

Date: Sun, 1 May 2005 07:49:13 -0500 From: Alexandre Enkerli <aenkerli at indiana.edu> Subject: "What Goes Around..." Had fascinating discussions with "the brewer at the end of the universe" (have to have some Hitchhiker's references...), Jeff Renner, and he imparted words of wisdom on the virtue of carefree giving. Similar to what we in cultural anthropology call "generalized reciprocity," the principle that when someone offers somebody else a beer, that person will in turn offer a beer to someone else and so on, until everyone is enjoying beer together. It really is what makes the world tick, or at least one of the things, as carefree giving is typically what parents do with their children. Of course, the principle is stronger with knowledge as it isn't lost by being given. "Give a man a homebrew, and he'll ask for more. Teach a friend to homebrew, and he'll get other people to homebrew." Cheers! AleX in Ann Arbor, MI [0,0] Apparent Rennerian Return to table of contents

Date: Sun, 1 May 2005 21:55:37 -0400 From: "Mark Arneson" <marneson at email.com> Subject: Filtering barleywine Hello all, My question is about filtering. I just purchased a filter for my IPA's and Pilsners (I haven't tried it yet). My last brew was a Bigfoot Barleywine clone and It's been in the secondary for three weeks now. Next week, I'm planning on transferring to a keg and I'm wondering if I should filter a Barleywine. Any experience or ideas? Thanks Mark Arneson Atlanta, GA marneson at email.com Return to table of contents
