    Mangrove Jack's M31 Belgian Tripel.

    Just closing the loop and reporting back on this one. This yeast delivered satisfactory flavours when fermented at 25 degrees. Banana and clove / peppery esters consistent to style. A fast ferment as you would expect at that temp with candy syrup and had reasonable attentiveness. Good...

    Leaving wort overnight

    Same. Only did it once and the following day there was a pellicle on top of the wort for a Belgian. All good though as it turned out to be one of the best beers I ever made! Must try to replicate some day. Edit: found the thread I started at the time with a pic. Actually started out making a...

    Keep it simple. Pitch a pack into a 1L starter using 100g of DME. Usually around 1.040

    You are ok with pitching on the dregs but don't think you can do starters with dried yeast? What's the difference?

    Mangrove Jack's M31 Belgian Tripel.

    Nah. If you need a certain number of cells not achievable through one pack then you either buy extra packets or use a starter to hit that number. It really is no different to liquid yeast.

    I made a 1L starter using 1 pack for a 23L wort at 1.055

    Thanks anyway guys. I will try a ferment in the middle of that range and report back.

    Mangrove Jack's M31 Belgian Tripel.

    Anyone had experience with this yeast? I have a pack in the fridge and was going to knock something together. Large fermentation range given of 18 degrees - 28 degrees. Am wondering what to expect flavour wise at either end of that scale. Esters? Sulphur? More info: will be making something in...

    Dedicated Grainfather Guide, Problems and Solutions Thread

    Always give a good stir before taking a sample as you do get stratification within the wort. Make sure to cool or adjust for temp when taking a reading (Brewer's Friend have a calculator for this). As for mash times and different mash times (and obviously temps) achieve different things so the...

    Dedicated Grainfather Guide, Problems and Solutions Thread

    That is what I do with flame out additions however your 20 minute hopstand is a perfectly valid option depending on what you are looking to achieve. Just that if you do go that way know that it impacts the rest of the hop schedule which you may need to make allowance for. By far the easiest way...

    Dedicated Grainfather Guide, Problems and Solutions Thread

    If you are doing a 20 min hop stand you need to adjust your timings in whatever software you are using (eg. Any 30 min addition is now actually more like a 50 min equivalent). This will normally mean higher ibu's of course. Likewise your 0 min additions are likely adding some ibu's due to the...

    Increase carbonation after bottling

    +1 for the syringe method. Have used it once on an undercarbed batch of porter (miscalculation) and gave a very consistent result.

    Am I staling my beer?

    Interesting. I heard Mitch Steele at ANHBC say to hit FG, then drop below 15 degrees to drop out yeast, remove said yeast and then dry hop. Expect most of the flavour to be extracted within 24 hours so consider multiple rounds of 2 days for maximum effect.
