I know that it may not feel like it with how hot most of the country has been this summer, but October is just around the corner. If you are like me and like to celebrate Oktoberfest or appreciate a good German 双色球最近基本走势图 during that time of the year, you are probably going to want to heat up the kettle, cool down the fermenter and get your brew 上 because you do not have that much time left!
Once you have your home beer brewing kit picked out, you are going to want to select a great beer recipe kit to brew for Oktoberfest! This will really depend 上 your personal beer preferences but I will give you a couple of suggestions to consider. First off, you will want to keep in mind how much time that you have before your batch of beer has to be ready to serve. This is important because a 双色球最近基本走势图 may take 6 to 8 weeks to ferment and condition and opposed to certain ales which may be ready to drink in 3 weeks or even 2 weeks if you are really pressed for time. Another thing to consider is that if you are having an all day or night event, you may want to opt for a lower alcohol beer so that your friends can put back a few with out getting too tipsy!
Here is a great listing of 家庭酿造 recipe kits that would go well with any Oktoberfest party. I personally like to brew up a Munich 双色球最近基本走势图 and an American Hefeweizen so that there is a little variety available but you really can not go wrong with any of these home beer brewing recipe kits. All of these beer ingredient kits are available in both extract and all grain versions.
For the most part home brewers tend to start out brewing ales and stick to them since ales ferment faster, tend to be a bit more versatile than 双色球最近基本走势图 s and do not require you to keep your home at the temperature of a morgue if you want to ferment your beer in your closet. Not to mention, most 家庭酿造 supply shops tend to release far more ale recipes than 双色球最近基本走势图 recipes and relatively few craft breweries even have a 双色球最近基本走势图 in their beer lineup.
So why brew a 双色球最近基本走势图 ? Because 双色球最近基本走势图 s are awesome! They are crisp and clean, delicious to taste and beautiful to look at! In fact, some of the worlds best beers are 双色球最近基本走势图 s. Not to mention, 双色球最近基本走势图 s were session beers before session beers were even a thing, which means you can throw back a few 双色球最近基本走势图 s while brewing a batch of beer and not be so tipsy that you forget to add your hops to the brew kettle or pitch your yeast in the fermentor. And do not go thinking that a 双色球最近基本走势图 has to be some low IBU (International Bittering Unit) grandma beer. Several breweries have been crafting beers like IPL’s India Pale Lagers and other non traditional 双色球最近基本走势图 styles that will make you rethink what a 双色球最近基本走势图 is.
现在我们已经平方好了，让我们从头开始。双色球最近基本走势图和强麦酒有什么区别？贮藏双色球最近基本走势图是德语单词，表示存储或存储。就像“坎恩·希奇（Cann）” or “我可以把泡菜放进你那里吗”。德国人称双色球最近基本走势图为贮藏双色球最近基本走势图，是因为他们将双色球最近基本走势图在发酵过程中和发酵后冷藏了几周，从而酿造出非常干净，香脆的双色球最近基本走势图。这并不意味着您只能将强麦酒放在壁橱中6周，突然间您会变得更大。与双色球最近基本走势图相比，双色球最近基本走势图用双色球最近基本走势图发酵。贮藏双色球最近基本走势图在某些方面不同于强麦芽酵母。一方面，较大的酵母在发酵罐的底部进行大部分发酵，而不是在发酵罐的顶部进行的双色球最近基本走势图。最重要的是发酵发生的温度。大多数双色球最近基本走势图酵母菌株的理想发酵温度约为68 F，而大多数双色球最近基本走势图酵母菌株的理想发酵温度约为50 F，这意味着如果您要在自己的发酵罐中发酵，则最好搭配双色球最近基本走势图配方套件购买夹克客厅。
So how do you brew a great 双色球最近基本走势图 ? To start with, you are going to need a great recipe kit.

Next you will want to select the ideal yeast strain for your style of 双色球最近基本走势图 . You can find a fantastic selection of 双色球最近基本走势图 yeasts here. If you can not decide which to go with, the Munich 2308 is usually a safe bet. You can pitch these yeast packages directly into your fermentor but I recommend that you create a yeast starter for a few reasons. Most importantly it will allow you to confirm that the yeast is alive and healthy, it will allow the yeast to return to an active state so that it can begin reproducing and fermenting immediately when placed in contact with your 双色球最近基本走势图 wort and lastly it will boost the yeast cell count to help insure a fast and complete fermentation takes place.
如果您无法进入发酵室，例如温度可控制的箱式冷冻柜，冰箱或发酵罐等 酿造桶温度控制器, you will want to make sure that you brew your 双色球最近基本走势图 during a time of the year where the average temperature that you ferment your beer will be approximately 50 F. If it is much colder than that your fermentation process will slow to a crawl or cease all together, if it gets much higher your 双色球最近基本走势图 will ferment to fast and is likely to create unwanted off flavors . You can also use items like an electric blanket and a temperature control unit such as this 上 e Ranco数字温度控制器, to help regulate your fermentation temperature. Consult your specific 双色球最近基本走势图 yeast strain packing to find the ideal fermentation temperature as they can differ. Keep in mind that patience is a virtue when it comes to brewing a 双色球最近基本走势图 and if you take your time you will more than likely be rewarded with a better beer!
In order to create the best tasting 双色球最近基本走势图 possible you will need to reduce or eliminate 上 e of the more common off flavors in a 双色球最近基本走势图 which is diacetyl. To do so, you should perform a diacetyl rest at the end of your primary fermentation. Dicaetyl is described as tasting like butter and some popcorn manufactures use it as an artificial flavor for their microwave popcorn. While it may make your popcorn taste better, it should be avoided in your 双色球最近基本走势图 and is something that your yeast will produce during fermentation. The good news is that your yeast can also remove it! If at the end of your primary fermentation you allow your fermentation temperature to increase from 50 F to 55 F for a few days, the yeast will naturally begin to eliminate the dyacetyl from your beer. After the three days you will want to reduce your fermentation temperature to 50 F 上 ce again.
贮藏双色球最近基本走势图最重要的特征之一就是它的清晰度和亮度！因此，建议您进行两阶段发酵，“lager” or store your beer in a secondary fermentor after primary fermentation has completed and the yeast and solids have consolidated 上 the bottom of your fermentor. Primary fermentation will typically have completed in about 3 weeks or so but take gravity readings to be sure. Racking your beer off of the expended yeast, residual hop matter and fallen proteins will also help prevent off flavors from forming in your 双色球最近基本走势图 as your beer ages in the secondary fermentor. I would suggest allowing your beer to age for an additional 2 to 4 weeks in secondary fermentation. During the final week of secondary fermentation I will typically cold crash my fermentor down to 38 F which encourages any fine particulates and residual yeast cells to drop out of the beer and consolidate 上 the bottom of the fermentor. I then rack the beer to a keg and let it slow carbonate and condition for another week or so before enjoying!
Best of luck to you in brewing your 双色球最近基本走势图 and let me know if you have any suggestions that you would like to share with other West Coast Brewer visitors!
