Marston's Pedigree (enzyme still in my fermenter??)
« on: April 05, 2019, 08:09:33 PM »
So I had several clangers in the brew day from this one, worst of all finding a mouldy leftover hop stuck in the tap section of the boiler after having mashed and boiled in it (I clean much better now, honest!), which I had imagined made the whole wort have this acrid mould taste to it.  I very nearly dumped it, but figured it couldn't hurt to let it ferment after all the effort, and I appear to have gotten away with it, even though I had to blow hard into the pipe to get the beer moving out.  No bacteria or yeast in my breath apparently.

Interestingly though, it follows the Brut I made, and I'm wondering if I didn't do such a fantastic job of cleaning out the enzymes; I suppose you don't need many to have an effect, as my FG was 1005.  Does anyone else feel this is a bit low, or does that sometimes just happen?

Have you seen Chris that Beersmith estimated an OG of 1.006?

What process did you take to get rid of the enzyme, if my memory serves me well you need to add hot water above 70 degrees to the fermenter to kill the enzyme.

Cheers

Yeah, I saw 1006, so it's probably just within range.  I can't imagine the enzyme would still be around after the multiple rinses I did, but it's not an issue at all really.  Worst case, starch haze won't exist, though it's pretty dark anyway!
