---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 17 Aug 2010 08:15:15 -0400 From: "Dan" <dan at teeleengineering.com> Subject: Smithwick's Clone Recipe A neighbor of mine is interested in starting homebrewing and wants to start with a clone recipe for Smithwick's Irish Ale. In conducting some, ahem, 'research', it appeared to me that this beer is not a typical Irish 'Red' Ale, although the flavor is very similar. It looked far darker (brown) than most red ales, to my eye, without any of the astringency, kind of like an English mild ale. Does anyone have a good extract based clone recipe for this? Thanks Long time listener to the hbd, infrequent poster. Return to table of contents
Date: Tue, 17 Aug 2010 10:14:12 -0400 From: Bob Hall <rallenhall at henry-net.com> Subject: Fermenting Under Pressure A local tavern gave me a number of pin-lock cornies after the distributor went to syrup-in-a-box and told them to toss all the old stuff in the dumper. This gives me some equipment to play with on the side, and I've been trying to gather information on brewing (especially lagers) under pressure. Apparently, pressure keeps esters under control at elevated fermentation temperatures, which in turn speeds the fermentation process. Have any of you tried this? The information I find is very fragmented. Over on ProBrewer (which for some reason I can't seem to join, or even get a response from the administrator), contributor 'brewerallyn' discusses his experience in German breweries with six-day lagers, which were brewed under pressure at 57F. He also said that at a US brewery he produced beers from grain to glass in six days using Nottingham yeast under 10 psi (no temperature or styles mentioned). If anyone knows who this fellow is, I'd sure like to chat with him. Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone has tried this using a corny, pressure release, and foam suppressant. It might be a way to squeeze out some lagers at cool basement temps. Bob Hall, Napoleon, OH Return to table of contents
