Not bored, currently at work...although I am a bit bored at work...

When I am at home and have the means to boil rice hulls it is a different story. I would rather boil something else.

Wow...that talk about the rice hulls is interesting but I'd say it's BS too, all your going to do is add some starch to your beer and that would just make it hazy, right?

I agree about the dry hopping- all of those hops will soak up your beer and I also damn near lost more than a gallon to the hops. I think it is a pleasant beer as it is, just needs to be drunk young. Myself- I don't like my IPA's to have any semblance of sweetness but I can see where that makes some sense.

Good luck, let us know what you do and how it turns out...and someone let us know about the rice hulls

Actually no, or else it would do the same thing in a mash. I don't think it does anything whatsoever except make a nice grain bed.

Yeah, boiling really, really shouldn't make a difference, but because I have never done it, I cannot say either.

Okay, brewed it up today.

I only put in 3.5lbs of sorghum. But I added two liquefied bananas at 60min to go (it was really neat going in, I had a near boil over) .

I used 1lb of rice hulls at the end too. I really hope they don't work and someone will tell me for sure that they don't because I had to put on two sets of gloves, one set of rubber and one set of cloth, to squeeze the wort out of them. If I wouldn't have done that I would have lost half the wort.

Corrected OG is 1.076.

What do I call this? GFDIPA?

Okay, this beer spent two weeks in a primary and two weeks in a secondary. We're going to bottle it today or tomorrow (probably today). I've never used gelatin. My wife has 1/4oz packets, which look to be about a tablespoon worth. So I just boil that up with my priming sugar, dump it into the carboy, stir, let things settle for a half hour or so, and then bottle just like I always do?

No! Don't do that!!!

Usually when you use gelatin it is about a week or two before bottling, not on bottling day. You need to give it time to work! I can't remember the specifics on gelatin but I do not think I boiled my water, I think I heated it and poured the gelatin in to let it bloom and then poured it into the carboy. I let that sit for 6 days and on the day before bottling I threw the carboy in my fridge to help drop everything. I lost a whole lot to the hops and gelatin mix at the bottom and it wasn't easy to siphon either.

To that end you might just want to rack through a paint strainer or some cheesecloth for now. Add the priming sugar into the bucket and rack onto that. Siphon. Let it sit for a few minutes to settle anything that made it past the paint strainer or cheesecloth, then bottle away.

How's the color and aroma? I bet it smells awesome.

The aroma is very nice but I get a little bit of the sorghum citrus. The color and haze is about what I'd expect from something like Blue Moon or Sam Adams Summer Ale. We'll try a little bit of it during bottling to see what it is like.

Well, my bottles are in the dishwasher so it looks like gelatin is out.

Thanks for the tips. I would have fouled that one up.

It's hazy because of the hop particles in suspension, it will probably pour very clear once it has been bottle conditioned and cooled. I think our hops were a little different but mine was very pineappley
