finally stopped seeing the pressure go up today so I started the chilling process.  I'm probably going to have to vent these kegs for a bit to get them into reasonable carbonation territory.

plenty!  I'll be able to vent it off though.  I've learned my lesson for next time!

LOL.. yes I guess it was.  At least I found the issue tho!

 

After hitting Von Trapp, Alchemist and Hill Farmstead yesterday I guess I have some beer to hold me over till I get the next batch done.

No, Von trapp only offers tours on specific days and I am not sure the others even have tours.  I did see John Kimmich and Sean Hill hanging out up at Hill Farmstead yesteday so that was cool.  Also, Memoria ,  Single decocted, Old World German-style helles; lagered in wood for 3 months, and gently carbonated naturally via krausen, was a treat to drink.  Even my wife, not a huge beer drinker, could pick out differences from the Von Trapp helles she had earlier.  Going to a place like that really gets the brewing engine fired up.

Memoria is Hill. I got two packs of the nature. Had it side by side with the regular and minor differences but that was at dinner so want to try them again.

I don't really get why it would be cloudy if they lager it.  my very non-pro beers clear up completely when I lager them.

If I said cloudy that was a mistake because none of these beers were cloudy.

no you didn't.  I was kind of thinking it was implied by the von trapp website.  The picture looks more hazy/cloudy compared to the other beers:

This is Helles in its most natural form. We use colder fermentation and longer lagering times to give this unfiltered lager bready aromatics, a crisp and peppery finish, while maintaining the complexity of our traditional Helles style.


compare the above picture to their normal helles:

I wonder if there will be sediment in the cans.


so back to this thread but this beer is definitely way overcarbed :lol:

 

not surprised of course.  I'm going to put spunding valves on both of the kegs now that I have the beer level below the gas tube.

Good. A bit softer and more rounded than the regular helles they offer. The Vienna was the other beer I had at their beirhall, so good!!
