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

Wow, there are some hops in that recipe Scott. Are you using all pellets or a combination of flower and pellets? Would you expound on your decision to go with all medium-high alpha hops, vs some of the lower alpha hops as late or even post boil additions? I'm curious. You're report back on the resul...

Re: Tweaking stuff

MS and Scott, thank you for your replies. MS, It took me some thought but it finally hit me what you were saying about percentages. Yes, I'll start playing with that.

Tweaking stuff

I keep refining my APA recipe, and I’ll be changing two things on my next batch: making a late addition of hops for both flavor and some modified bitterness, and dropping the Crystal Malt from 60 to 15 to lessen the caramel flavor I've been getting. The caramel flavor has been too noticeable, overpo...

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

RE the "roiling boil" in the last picture. A couple of thoughts. It's hard to tell from the photo if the water is really boiling vigorously enough, I think this is something you'll have to experiment with to get adequate boil off. If I'm looking at the set up right it appears the liquid is only abou...
