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...

Re: Storing wort

Personally, no... I do not. Some here have stored hot wort in a plastic cube, and use it to brew with later. And if wort is hot enough can put into a cube and try to push air out and make sure the hot wort has made contact with all surfaces. Hot wort to kill any remaining “bugs”... Supposed to be wo...

Re: Disaster

Hi Phillip, I normally try to save “sloppy slurry”of yeast, in cleaned and sanitized jars. Try to fill the containers as full as possible to reduce potential for oxidization. It works pretty well. Sometimes great. Have had some occasions when making Yeast starter that it did not smell “right” and ch...

Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

When mashing if kid not on can use some towels around the top. With using propane like I do, I wrap in 2 blankets followed by old sleeping bag. 90 minute mash. Usually reheat one time in middle of mash as will have dropped a couple degrees Fahrenheit. Them re-wrap... Yes with boiling you want the li...
