When do I transfer to a secondary? Do I do a diacetyl rest with WY2007 (Pilsen lager)? Fermenting 2 days now at ~54F.. Thanks, Rich Return to table of contents

What do you suppose might have given it a "grainy" flavor which I rather enjoy, and I think is missing from my own home-brewed attempts at the style? Torrified wheat? Unmalted Barley? White wheat? I've used wheat DME and a 4lb mini mash of Pilsner/Wheat/Oats/Torrified wheat (+ Coriander/Bitter and sweet orange or course) in the past. Just looking for suggestions! Thanks, Rich Return to table of contents
Date: Sun, 13 Jan 2008 21:45:53 -0500 (EST) From: "Pat Babcock" <pbabcock at hbd.org> Subject: Ancient History Revealed! Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your lager... Well, I've spent some time decoding the fabled Missing Archives of The Ancient Janitor. The first Digests ever published, and their "brewsletter" predecessors have been added to the archive. I have not yet "HTMLized" them for those who ply the pages of the Digest on the website, but, as soon I resolve some numbering issues between the new and old Digests, this, too, will be done - from reviewing these lost scrolls, it is apparent that the current Digest numbering system misses the mark by over 500 issues! Special thanks to Rob Gardner for dropping these on us. Be sure to peruse the ftp archives where you will find new 1986 and 1987 directories. I have not yet reconciled the 1988 and 1989 files Rob included against what we already have in the archive, but will do so at the next opportunity. ALSO: if someone has some space to house a mirror of the archives, it is time to come forward! The Stanford archives have been gone for many years now, and I don't think Spencer's archive is currently active since his Digest search was firewalled also many years ago. I would greatly appreciate space on a server we know to be enduring for this purpose - such as ibiblio or the like. In any case, please let me know who and where you are. If it is possible to provide me telnet access to the space as well, I can keep the archives free of SPAM, as I do the archives housed on the HBD server (this usually requires me to edit the spam out of the archived file...), or, if you can actively mirror the site using diff on the files or something of the sort... In any case, please let me know! After all this time, it'd truly be a shame if The Digest were to be lost to history. - -- See ya!
