Default Holy Crapoli!


mmmmmmmmmmmm!

Good stuff.

Had my first taste of my variance of this (I used the S 04) and I bottled.

I couldn't wait another month, so I chilled one of my efforts off and I've just finished a pint and all I can say is......mmmm good!

Damn good stuff!

I'm too much of a novice to know which hops are doing what, all I know is that I have a very hoppie beer but not offensive, can't tell the alcohol is even there...til the beer is gone and then....WhoooWeee!

Oops, I forgot to add, I left my secondary about two weeks longer than advertised, and not disappointed I did.

The 04 is the only variation I made and after worrying about it since before Christmas, I am so glad I went with it.

Thanks BM. This truly is a wonderful experience.

BM, do you mean malty sweetness? Shouldn't a Pliny clone be dry? Your crystal is about 4%, inline with Pliny. Is this sweetness just because it's such high grav?

Also, why do you, personally, transfer to a secondary? Is that recipe specific, or just for IIPAs?

And do you really get a lot out of the second two weeks in the primary? (have you done head-to-head comparisons?

Do you get grassiness in your IIPA's early on, before your aging?

Excellent.

You're making me thirsty for some of my own recipes.

the brew day went really good. hit all my numbers except for my og was 1.078....i don't think i boiled off enough wort cause my pot was so full.

anyways i brewed on friday and put the fermentor in my refigerator hooked up with a JC temp controller, and i have that plugged into a power strip which controls 2 refrigerators. well the power was turned off on the strip and i didn't know it, i left friday racing all weekend and came home sunday and i realized it was fermenting in mid to high seventies....ferment temp. the temp strip on this fermentor doesn't read anymore but i have another glass carboy in there done fermenting that reads about 70. i hope i don't get any off flavors but since this is going to condition for a while i think it will be ok. i fixed the power and now its fermenting at 66~68

Wow, I'm dying to brew this now. I've been planning a summer wheat/IIPA hybrid, and I think this is the hop schedule I'll use. I believe I have all these hops in my freezer, but would only slightly change the GB based on what I have on hand. Reading recipe posts that get such rave reviews as this make for excessive blood flow into my boxer shorts, and this is one that will get a shot. Now if I can only get my SOF chiller built and resume brewing, I'll be tight, yo. Tanks for a sweet recipe.

i did this one tonite but didn't have the Crystal Hops so I doubled up on the Amarillo hops at the end. i hit 1.092 OG which is my highest yet.

I'm looking forward to bringing this out in 1 month for World Cup Final party! Cheers

why 4 weeks in primary? seems like quite a long time for this yeast.
