Re: I feel like I'm getting there....slowly, but surely.

Hey Muggy, That’s an interesting read... ;) I’ve made mistakes too. Especially when trying to do extra things that should have been done before, but end up needing to do on brew day. In particular CLEANING (kegs, fermenter, etc.). The more that gets added to my brew day activities, the more chance t...

Re: IPA Brewers - What are your opinions with hop additions for IPAs?

Kegged 5 gallons + bottled a dozen bottles on Saturday... So far, I think it’s very good. Not properly carbonated but I keep raiding the keg and drinking it anyhow. :drink: LOTS of good flavor! Mecca Grade Estate Malt - Wow, definitely has nice body and good flavor. Hop mix - strong grapefruit-flora...

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Welcome to the forum Hamby & Hinckley. Hinckley - The BIABacus file works great! There's enough work with understanding the processes, most don't want to make major alterations, as there is no reason to do so. The BIABacus does allow some leeway to modify things if needed, but not modify the actual ...

Re: IPA Brewers - What are your opinions with hop additions for IPAs?

I’ve got to admit, at least for me it is Not necessarily Love for NEIPA (I don’t drink many; at times can be too far to one side of the pendulum). But adding elements of that sub-style to my IPAs (late hop additions, less bitterness and some fruitier hops) , should provide a more balanced IPA. Final...

Re: IPA Brewers - What are your opinions with hop additions for IPAs?

Thanks for the thought and comments on this, gentlemen... MS - I am going to do a 10 min Hop Stand. Almost forgot, and it is not yet on my sheet but I remembered... And the process to get max flavor without added bitterness, rapidly chill from approximately 216 deg F (102 deg C) to about 180 deg F (...

Re: IPA Brewers - your opinions on hop additions please...

Yeah mostly pellet hops. All except the 2016 Centennial (Oregon / Flower hops). Loral and El Dorado are high Alpha but capable of dual use. Lots of interesting flavor especially for IPA. Used some El Dorado in my first IPA. Yakima Valley Hops had a special on Loral. Looked interesting and could use ...

IPA Brewers - What are your opinions with hop additions for IPAs?

I am trying to formulate an easy to drink IPA recipe and would like thoughts on what I have here so far, in particular the hop timing and additions. Looking for something around 6% ABV and probably in the neighborhood of 60 IBUs. Something that has some bitterness, but great hop flavor (so plenty of...

Re: Tweaking stuff

Related... An article that I read. Boneyard Brewery from Bend, Oregon. Their super popular IPA is Boneyard RPM. But it was formulated early on in the Brewer’s Journey when he was a home brewer. Now he considers it too sweet with too much Crystal Malt for his taste. He now recommends blending with Mu...

Re: Tweaking stuff

Hey Streamer, I agree with MS and would not use black patent malt... One other idea to not get as sweet a character as the Crystal Malt but get some flavor and darker color - use Munich Malt to replace the Crystal. Or use some...maybe mix it 50/50 with the Crystal used in that BCS book recipe from J...

Re: Amarillo pale ale how to substitute cascade hops

Hi Ninkas, Yes you can...but I would be certain you've properly cared for your hops before using them in beer. For Example: I always will a) dry the hops, then b) measure out 1 ounce / 28g packages. Maybe some larger, and use a vacuum sealer. And c) put in the freezer. There are other ideas that mig...

Re: is FG Correct

Do wonder if hydrometer could be pulled and small jar covered to stop evaporation. It seems like topping off will make reading wrong?.?.? Yes I understand you add water back but that seems like it could cause accuracy issues.?..?. If carefully mark initial fluid level it “should” be right. Seems lik...

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Jake in Redding, CA, USA... Looks like we almost overlooked your post. Welcome to the forum! I live a few hundred miles North of you... I have never done Mini-BIAB, but many others on the forum regularly do. Break it down and do your best at each brewing step...and you should be happy with the resul...

Re: Disaster

FYI - I have stored sloppy slurry and reconstituted up to 1-year. Used multiple yeast starters. It worked in at least one case. Frequently save in 3-6 month timeframe, multiple times. Normally works with using yeast starters. Occasionally problems where something doesn’t seem right and I discard and...

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Hello and welcome to the forum, jahajazz, Alex, Danny, einzack and GPM! I think we would all give the big thumbs up for the traditional Full Volume BIAB brewing...! :thumbs: Very simple and works great. Let us know if you have any questions on equipment. Always easiest before a purchase is made. Ale...
