I didn't have the time to let my kettle settle so I dumped the whole thing in my fermenter. Bottled today, was surprisingly clear with only half a tablet used on brew day

I did cold crash at 45 F for 24 hours though

Been a lil while. Still getting strong pineapple tropical fruit notes from the 2oz Belma dry hop. Not complaining, just sayin'. F'n awesome fruity pale ale. Dry hopping all 10g next time. Try it!

^Yep, sampled at just under 3 weeks conditioning, really tasty yet simple beer, great for summer sessions

Time for my 7th or 8th keg of this stuff! I love it. I keep changing it up a little bit. It is consistently the 1st Tap that is kicked at any party.

This time I'm going to try Pacman yeast & dry hop an additional 1.0 oz Cascade & 1.0 oz. Citra on your suggestions. I've never had Pacman. Dry Hop? My taste buds have evolved due to my exposure on this site. The hoppier the better.

My experience:

1) Fresh Raspberries = fantastic

2) Wyeast 1056 = fantastic

3) Nottingham = good

4) Safarel 05 = OK

5) Orange = good

6) Fresh Wet Hops = good

YMMV but that's my take. I had to order the Pacman special from my LHBS. No rush. I'm not a fan of dry yeast.

Now I don't like to drink the same stuff again & again. I try to mix it up, but this is the 1 brew that I can't keep in my keezer. It goes that fast!

I tried some Orange Shock Top at a showing of the Thunderbirds Airshow in July. It was 104* outside. THE BEER WAS THE BEST! I was the only 1 at the booth. The Budweiser booth was jam packed. Then I tried it again a few days later in the cool, and I was underwhelmed.

Any suggestions for the cold winter months? What's Up!?

Thanks Guys!

I've brewed a few batches of my Black Pearl Porter and added 6 ounces of fresh ground vanilla coffee beans (Eight O'Clock Brand) to the primary after fermentation for about one week.

Hands down, the favorite dark beer of everyone who's tapped my beers.

Absolutely. Awesome crowd pleaser that's great for just about anything.

I pitched yeast on this around 10:30 pm on Dec 23rd, kegged on the 27th, and served it at a New Year's Eve party. I should have crashed it for 24 hours and kegged on the 28th or 29th as it was quite cloudy and the first few pulls were definitely yeasty, but the flavor was just fine and well received. If the crowed wasn't primarily a mixed drink group, the keg wouldn't have survived as there wasn't much left anyway.

I didn't think this would be any good after sampling the first two weeks. Im actually working on my next to last one right now. It's a shame I don't have any more wating to be bottled.

It really needs to age 3-4 weeks or more to bring it out fully. I added it to my rotation sheet for future brewing.

Just bought my grains for this today. Gonna brew tomorrow as my first foray into AG/BIAB. Hoping it all turns out alright and even my BMC brother enjoys it.

I just made a 2 gallon version of this recipe for my Mr beer as my first all grain recipe. I'm going to buy a larger pot soon so i can do all grain in my 5 gallon fermentation bucket. Hit my OG marks so it should be good to go.
