---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 19 Mar 2008 07:05:10 -0400 From: Fred L Johnson <FLJohnson52 at nc.rr.com> Subject: Re: Olive Oil Addition to Yeast as an Alternative to Wort Aeration A significant deficiency of Hull's olive oil study is that he did not perform the important, obvious control of conducting a fermentation without the addition of olive oil and without aeration. For all we know adding nothing would have produced the exact results reported for addition of olive oil. And I've said this before, it is very unlikely that the bulk of the olive oil (triglyceride) has anything to do with the results. I'm pretty certain that there is no mechanism for yeast to use triglycerides. The presence of a small amount of nonesterifed fatty acids in olive is perhaps the only source that the yeast could actually take up. If you're trying to add polyunsaturated fatty acids to wort, adding olive oil would appear to be a poor way to do so. In the next post, I'll try to find out the content of free fatty acids in a typical olive oil. Fred L Johnson Apex, North Carolina, USA Return to table of contents

It is currently scheduled for Saturday, August 9th. The fair's special contest coordinator would like to have the support of a local club and an experienced BJCP competition organizer to help with this event. If you can provide assistance by being the organizer or your club would like to work with the fair as a project, please contact Marilyn Johnson at 650-574-3247 x 316 or at mjohnson at smeventcenter.com.

Date: Tue, 25 Mar 2008 08:01:52 -0700 (PDT) From: Matt <baumssl27 at yahoo.com> Subject: english yeast strains I recently had a bad experience with Safale S-04: bad flocculation with an associated "bready" taste that is only diminishing as fast as the beer settles in the bottle--which is very very slowly. Looking at some websites this problem seems common (but not universal) with S-04. Anyway rather than try to figure out how to make S-04 work for me I want to try another strain for this kind of beer. Can anyone recommend a strain that they've found to be consistently fruity, flocculent, and user-friendly? I'm looking for a character similar to Youngs beers. Thanks for any suggestions, Matt Return to table of contents
